DUBROOM ONLINE EDITION JULY 26-31 2010


FROM THE EDITOR

WWW, July 26 - A must-see documentary on the UK and European Sound System Culture, keeping the Roots Fires burning with some massive Dub. One hour and forty minutes of pure Reggae and especially DUB Niceness, including some very new material from VP Records which is scheduled for release next month. A new Messian Dread tune, and that's not all we got this week.

When there's a theme in this edition of Dubroom Online, it's very evident and very clear: UK AND EURODUB AND ROOTS is the music of this week, with the exception of let's say the first 20 or so minutes of the tenth episode of Radio Dubroom.

In support to the DUBARK.com website, a previously unreleased Messian Dread track called "Vultures (Discomix)" can be downloaded for free, but you have to visit the website first. It surely will not waste your time!

Crucial music in this week's podcast as well: brand new material from Capleton, brand new old stuff from Sizzla, there's Linval Thompson and a crucial selection of UK and EURO DUB and ROOTS, including two tracks by heavyweight Dub Masters Alpha and Omega and three by Vibronics.

"Musically Mad" is the title of an outstanding DVD documentary on the UK and EURO Sound System culture. This is something you should really watch and feel for yourself, because Jah Vibes are spreading and Babylon feel it.

Last but not least: more DUB in MP3 format. Just read the reviews and get the tunes!

One Love, Give Thanks,
Messian Dread (Dubroom Webmaster)

MESSIAN DREAD - VULTURES (DISCOMIX)

MESSIAN DREAD - VULTURES (DISCOMIX)
A TRIBUTE TO THE DUBARK.com WEBSITE
WWW, July 2010 - In a recent move of supporting the relatively new DUBARK website, you can now download a previously unreleased discomix called "Vultures" when you visit the Dubroom page at www.dubark.com.

The track is a massive riddim, of which the bassline was originally created by Heartical, who can play -as you can hear in the track- some pretty heavy-duty lines and play them on his bass guitar too. The track was often played at performances by the original Jah Roots band from the Netherlands, not one of the several cool bands who have the same name and came afterwards.

The lyrics for the tune are originally written by Messian Dread, and have been a bit expanded for this specific discomix, completely created and produced by Messian Dread in the Dubroom Studio.

As said in the opening paragraph, the tune is uploaded to the relatively new http://www.dubark.com/ website, a "small axe" place for online (DUB) Reggae artists to share their music with other artists and listeners who can comment on the releases. The website is -like the Dubroom- independant and aimed at the promotion of the music that we all love so much DUB and (other) REGGAE. Independance is a form of mystical unity which is simply there and cannot be different.

WWW, July 19 - With a very special podcast, some nice MP3 files and a couple of wonderful free and legal Net Albums, the thirteenth episode of Dubroom Weekly is definitely not full of bad luck. Quite the contrary, I would say!

This week's podcast is indeed a very special one. The show loosely features the work of "just" three names, but these names are not the least: Conscious Sounds Studio, Vibronics and the Italian Dub collective BR Stylers with vocal works of Prince Alla, Jah Free, Tena Stelin and many more plus thunderous Dub versions. Once again, give thanks to the UK Dub masters for their permission to feature their works on Radio Dubroom.

Two brand new releases, too: The UK based East Park Reggae Collective being one of the biggest surprises in this all. Also, we feature the debut of Jamaican vocalist Denno, who is aimed at spreading consciousness in the Dance where this is so much needed.

There's reviews of tracks which have been featured on Radio Dubroom before: Sheya Mission, Mykal Rose and Pama Intl. On top of that, a crucial vocal track by Alborosie and Prince Blanco on a Dubmatix riddim.

That's not all, though: the 2008 release "Dub Forward" by the Swedish based Lion Dub band is another gem that you can download in this week's edition of Dubroom Online. Dub Akom, the French dancehall/reggae band is there, as well as two brand new releases from Net Label land.

All-in-all, I hope you have a healthy doses of crucial Reggae for another week!

One Love, Give Thanks,
Messian Dread (Dubroom Webmaster)

WWW, July 12 - "Dubbing is A Must", as I and I are used to say after Pablo Moses, and in this edition of Dubroom Weekly by far the biggest portion is reserved for this discipline within Reggae that gave name to this very website. Free and legal tracks from Alpha and Omega, Vibronics, Dubmatix and the Abassi-Allstars are reviewed, as well as Net Albums by BR Stylers, Dancehall Dub Plates by Mykol Orthodox and two crucial compilation albums. On top of that an extra-long Podcast containing some of the best material that's out there in free and legal MP3 Cyberspace!

There's a lot of crucial stuff available free and legally for the lover of the better DUB and (other) Reggae, as visitors of the Dubroom can know by checking out our MP3 reviews at mp3.dubroom.org. Entitled "Reggae Blessings From 21st Century Cyberspace", the Dubroom Podcast that comes with this edition of Dubroom Weekly shows it in just over two hours worth of material.

The rest of the reviewed material too, by the way.

Dub Plates by Alpha and Omega, two album tracks by Vibronics and a relatively new release by Dubmatix in a cooperation with the Abassi All-Stars: UK DUB at it's finest, you can say. EuroDUB by the amazing Italian band BR Stylers, a very interesting compilation selected by US based Kris Naphtali complete a truly interesting addition to your DUB collection.

There's more: an album centered around the German-based Reggaeband Firetime much in the style of contemporary Jamaican Roots Music we know by such as Luciano. Last, but definitely not least is the collection of Dub Plates by known names such as Burru Banton, produced by South-American Mykol Orthodox.

All in all, I hope that you find the music as crucial as I do. The producers and artists are truly talented, and they are blessing us with making all this music available for free. Truly Reggae Blessings from 21st Century Cyberspace.

One Love, Give Thanks,
Messian Dread (Dubroom Webmaster)

WWW, July 5 - With eight EP and Full length Net Albums reviewed, two Dancehall tunes from the Jamaican Dancehall vocalist E-Dee, two previously unreleased tunes from yours truly on the very nice French TALAWA website, I hope that you're not disappointed with this edition of Dubroom Weekly.

For there's more, and it's a brand new episode of Radio Dubroom. Entitled "A Conscious DUB Experience", it's a twenty-two track selection of mostly vocals with their DUB versions, as well as a very rare Yabby You Dub Plate and an old radio recording with Prince Far I.

As said, also two tunes by the Jamaican Dancehall vocalist E-Dee. He is featured in the American R&B Billboard charts and is increasingly popular in both the Dancehall as well as the R&B scenes. Two free and legal tunes!

I cannot say enough good about the Spanish based Hotdrop Reggae Band, and so I won't right here. After all, the raving review in this edition speaks for itself. That is a band which needs a lot more attention than they do now inna Cyberspace.

Other than a review from the Hotdrop CD "Ready", this edition also has a very healthy portion of DUB for you, coming in the form of reviews from yet another load of crucial releases from the Net Label front. More than recommended, everything!

One Love, Give Thanks,
Messian Dread (Dubroom Webmaster)
