FROM THE EDITOR

WWW, September 20 2010 - Will Buju Banton's innocence be acknowledged or rejected by the jury? That's the question, and also the one and only topic of this week's edition of Dubroom Online. For it is in this week that we will see just what the jury will decide.

Next week, Jah Willing, there's gonna be a lot of musical works reviewed. There's a lot on the table, but the issue concerning Buju Banton has my one and only focus at the moment. I can not write a positive review about anything, as I have this vision of Buju Banton locked in a jail because he was clearly entrapped by Babylon.

The fact that the jury could not come to a decision which in itself is not so difficult to make -Buju is innocent of the crime they say has been committed but he's the victim of government sponsored agent provocateurs who entrapped him- worries me.

Are they wanting to know the truth or are they just doing what they are supposed to do in this New World Order?

We will see it this week.

When Buju will be free, there's gonna be a lot of celebration. When they decide to follow lies and keep him in jail, there's gonna be a lot of chanting down Babylon.

One Love, Give Thanks,

FROM THE EDITOR

WWW, September 20 2010 - It's a bit difficult to be enthusiastic over the contents of this edition of Dubroom Weekly: after all, this is the day in which Buju Banton is going to court to face his accusers that framed him. However, with three podcasts and seven crucial free and legal MP3 files, it's worth to check out.

Yes, we started doing Podcast reviews again after what could very well be over a year in which there was no podcast review. We've got two UK Sound System sessions, one live and one done for the Internet by DJ Ian Irie from the Ambassada Hi Powah Sound.

Since there's only a little bit of space left for this month in the Dubroom's podbean account, this week's podcast is almost one hour. In October we can start doing longer ones again and Jah Willing, we will.

Then there is my small commentary on what is scheduled to happen today in Miami (USA), when Buju Banton will be facing his accusers. A scandal, or should I even say, several scandals as certain websites express their joy over Buju's situation, not even caring as to whether he actually did what his accuser say he did.

We've got six tunes from the Polish based Ostrada festival: Mungo's HiFi and Zion Train, Everton Blender, Johnny Clarke and Rootz Underground, they're all present in Hi quality free/legal MP3 format.

Hopefully, next week we'll be having a better time as Jah Willing Buju Banton will be considered innocent even though the web of lies that the gov't created is kind of thick.

One Love, Give Thanks,

ON THE BUJU BANTON MATTER

ON THE BUJU BANTON MATTER
MESSIAN DREAD COMMENTARY

ON THE BUJU BANTON MATTER



WWW, September 20 2010 - Today is the day in which Buju Banton will finally appear before the american judge after he was framed by a government paid informer, who also received money to get the Dancehall and Reggae vocalist in prison.

On the Dubroom Message Boards, the "Buju Banton Cokane Case" is followed by several members who post updates when they happen. It will probably be the same in the next couple of days, when things will become more clear. However, I am feeling pressed to write my own commentary on "the-day-before", if you will (this was actually written September 19).

When the news broke, last year December, that Buju Banton was arrested for allegedly planning to sell over five kilo's of cokane, there was hardly anyone who could take it serious. It was almost a laughing matter, was it not for the fact that this is a serious thing when you are being arrested in the USA for these charges.

As I overstand the story, Buju Banton had a conversation with a paid government informer on a an airplane from Spain to the USA, after which he remained to have contact with this informer. According to the little information that comes out, this informer pressed Buju to do cokane deals.

Then, there are two other people arrested together with the Reggae singer. One of them initially signed a statement saying Buju Banton has nothing to do with the cokane case these people might or might not be involved in. However, both men have joined Babylon and are now accusing Buju Banton in order to get a lower sentence themselves. These things are very normal in the USA and they are called "plea-deals". In short: when the government can't get their evidence, they just intimidate you and say: "plea guilty, we will lower the sentence".

Plea-deals are an abomination, both for truth-finding and for the overall sense of justice. How many people have actually said they were guilty of a crime they did not commit, only because if they keep sticking to the truth they will serve much longer in these prisons? JAH knows, definitely!

Personally, I do not believe that Buju Banton has anything to do with any cokane case. Sure, when you're working in music you will be confronted with hard drugs, simply because many artists and other workers in music are using the drugs. This is the closest connection between Buju Banton and cokane I can think of.

Buju Banton is a very popular artist. He might not be a zillionaire like many of these superstars, But I do not think he really needed to get himself into any cokane deals in order to make his living. On top of that, Buju Banton would probably have known about the fact that the US government create most of their drug cases by means of paid informers, or should I say, agent provocateurs...

Buju was obviously framed. There are too many people who would like him to shut down as his musical works are an offense to certain politikal korrekt ones. I have seen "gay" websites cheering over the fact that Buju is in jail, some even saying that they don't care if Buju did the cokane thing or not.

I hope and pray, that JAH will not allow the shitstem to do to Buju Banton what they are obviously planning. I have little trust in the truth-finding nature that a court should be, but JAH is the Almighty.

One good thing which comes out of this, though: as far as I can see an end has come to the enormous flood of Reggae tunes worshipping the guy in the white house as people are waking up (again?) to the fact that gross injustice is being done, not only to Buju, but to many more Jamaican artists and non-artists who saw their visas revoked.

One Love, Give Thanks,

FROM THE EDITOR

WWW, September 12 2010 - Sure thing: it took a long time before this edition of Dubroom weekly was finally ready and that had nothing to do with any lack of contents, as you can see: hours and hours of music plus a review of the brand new Zion Train Dub Selections Sample pack which all Dub producers and Selectors must check out!

Sure: those who have been following up with the runnings in the Dubroom know that your's truly got married about a week ago and I was of the impression that before that time I could put out another edition of Dubroom Weekly.

It didn't mean there was nothing and that's why this kind of in-between edition of Dubroom Weekly is packed, literally. First of all with no less than six podcasts, that's well over 8 hours worth of music. Then with a brand new album by yours truly plus four single tracks which I did using the brand new Zion Train Dub Selections Sample Pack which -by the way- is also reviewed in-depth for this edition.

That's not all, either. Meet Aba Shanti-I, one of the leading sounds of UK DUB and ROOTS as they talk about their works for almost two hours on a video done for the Red Bull Music Academy. Download both chapters of the Revolutionary Dub Vibration compilations, plus some digital niceness by Injham and last but definitely not least: four special mixes by the UK DUB Twins Alpha and Omega.

Hopefully and Jah Willing, the next edition will be published on September 20. After that, we hope to be able to put out Dubroom Weekly on a real weekly basis.

One Love, Give Thanks,

Messian Dread - Dubbing (Net Album)

MESSIAN DREAD - DUBBING
DUBROOM STAR SELECTIONS MP3 RELEASE

image


WWW, August 2010 - Fifteen previously unreleased Dubs straight from the Dubroom Archives, most of which come from even previously unreleased riddims: It's called "Dubbing" and it's out there now!

Dubbing it is: from the top to the very last drop. Most of the tracks are previously unreleased riddims, with the exception of two or three, one of which even has a totally different drumline put to it than the one in which it was originally released.

Dubbing it is, also in the sense that the mixing is predominantly done in a pretty lively style. At places, everything goes wild and at other instances there's a more relaxed approach as the drum and bass find their way.

Most tracks on the album come with a Steppers drums, especially towards the end of the album you hear one after the other. There's several containing authentic recordings of pilots and army people talking about UFO sightings as well.

In the Meantime... (Messian Dread/Dubroom Update September 8 2010)

IN THE MEANTIME...



MESSIAN DREAD/DUBROOM UPDATE SEPTEMBER 8
2010


WWW, September 8 2010 - Those of you who have been patiently waiting until
the next update and don't check the Dubroom Messageboards, may have missed the
news that yours truly got married last september 3rd and this has caused a bit
of a pause in the updating process. Even though I did expect that I would be
able to update the site, I wasn't. In this update you can read about it all,
including the soon-to-come new edition of Dubroom weekly packed with too much to
mention in the this opening paragraph


At the moment I write this, I am very much busy updating this-and-that. Just
finished uploading 6 new podcasts, a total of over seven hours of music. Also
released a Messian Dread album and have some more music here waiting to be
processed before it can be released as well. Some of the tracks waiting here are
created with the use of the brand new ZION TRAIN DUB SELECTIONS sample pack,
which I'm currently reviewing as well.


All this and more has to be put in the next edition of Dubroom
"Weekly", a thing which can't be done in a few minutes time.
Especially not when you consider that in these last weeks there was just too
much to do and even though I tried harder than hard, I didn't work enough to get
everything done. After all, I don't want to deliver half work.


Hopefully you'll have a little bit more patience, as jah Willing the ext
edition will be packed with free and legal music, more than I just mention here.
There's a couple of net albums and tracks which are waiting to be downloaded,
for example. And even further away in the planning comes new a brand new release
from a non-Dubroom artist about which you'll hear probably in October.


Anyway, I hope that the next edition will be there September 13.


One Love,

Messian Dread (Duboom Webmaster)
