"EVALUATING 2009 (16)" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, December 17 2009 - Where no less than 111 pages were moved to the MP3 museum, already there are about 50 new artists at mp3.dubroom.org, all recently added. In the time I write this, there are a lot to come, still, too!
Together with the introduction of the brand new section of Dubroom Artist Pages, the clean-up of the MP3 Portal was by far the biggest project of 2009, when it comes to the Dubroom.
Perhaps there is another one too.
The demise of Xsorbit, the former hosting company for the Dubroom Message Boards, and the subsequent move to Yuku, was indeed another project.
One Love, Give Thanks,

ITEMS FOR THIS EDITION:
WWW, December 17 2009 - In "Freezing", we meet up with the complete posse behind Michael "Dread At The Controls" Campbell, aka Mikey Dread. Rub a Dub style, Party style, over 7 minutes of pure niceness, both instumentally and dubically!
WWW, December 2009 - Star Chase is a fine instrumental, recorded in Jamaica during a time wherein Rub a Dub was yet to go digital with riddims like Sleng-Teng. None of that is noticeable in this upfull and Ire instrumental track with a slice of DUB from 1984.
WWW, December 2009 - The news that Buju Banton was arrested in Florida (USA) for the bizarre claim of "conspiracy to posses more than five kilo of cocaine" caused waves of responses all over Babylon. From the "Gay Rights Activists" to Idrens in the Movement of Rastafari, everybody agrees that this has to do with his musical works rather than the alleged claims.
