"THIS IS THE DUBROOM (3)" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, October 28 2009 - The Dubroom is definitely not a business or a religious mission or something like that. The Dubroom is a labour of a love. A love for (DUB) Reggae and Consciousness, shared by countless others.
Almost everything on this website is offered free of charge, sections of the Dubroom like the MP3 portal serve both listeners and label in this Musical Culture called Reggae, a Culture rather than a business because to promote (DUB) Reggae is, in the end, to promote the sufferers who originated the music and dominate it until this very day.
Anyway, I needed to share a little bit, these last days, about just what drove me to start the Dubroom and keep maintaining it throughout these last 12 years and -Jah willing- years to come.
One Love, Give Thanks,
Messian Dread (Dubroom Webmaster)
