"NOW ROOTS" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, November 20 2009 - Mikey General and Zyon High: two artists of which the Dubroom reviewed free and legal MP3 files, downloadable straight from the Dubroom's download pages.
The music is Contemporary Roots, you could also say: "Now Roots".
It is not without reason, that the Dubroom utilizes this term to describe new or recently released traditional Reggae.
Where a lot of people seem to think that Roots are by definition to be seen in the past, in reality (as every biologian can tell us) roots keep on growing and not just in size: also strength is increasingly necessary as the rest of the tree grows too.
Check out the music, and the lyrics, and see once again how Reggae is still strong, still growing Roots.
One Love, Give Thanks,
Messian Dread (Dubroom Webmaster)
