Radio Dubroom Extra Chapter 4: Rub A Dub, Let It Play!

RUB A DUB, LET IT PLAY
RADIO DUBROOM EXTRA CHAPTER 4


Chapter Page

WWW, August 2014 - Today, the music in this non-stop show would be labeled "Roots Reggae". This has not always been so: Jamaican music developed from the early to mid 1980's into a style called "Rub a Dub". Early digital technology entered the studio's, gradually replacing the old tape echo's and providing a fatter sound. Rub a Dub style, let it play!

Actually, this was the time when your selector became conscious and a lover of (DUB) Reggae Music and heard several tracks featured in this show when they first came out. Starting with the first one: a fat Dub of which a vocal track will come later in the mix ("Groove with Me"). Another Dub follows in classic Rub a Dub sound, after which Sister Carol opens with yet another fat Rub a Dub riddim that will definitely shake up the place.

And that's just the introduction.

Charlie Chaplin is next, riding a riddim while Don Carlos sings along until the Dub part. More Don Carlos, a full lyrical track of which the Dub was played at the start of the show and a classic from that era, in Discomix style. Johnny Osbourne and a Dub by Scientist, another favorite of the selector. Papa Tullo in Discomix style, with a little bit of vinyl trouble that's hardly noticeable.

Josey Wales' "Guiding Star", a favorite of Iriginal Jah Roots band drummer Imro Fedor precedes two Yellowman tracks of which the one with the long name was a hit back in the days, a success for Yellowman as well as the Volcano label that was so strong in these days. The same goes for the Frankie Paul track that's there too, War Is In The Dance or Worries in the Dance. 

Junior Murvin, Cultural Roots, John Holt, Triston Palma: they all had new releases back in the time to join the Rub a Dub sound. A sound that is often underestimated by folks who think that Reggae's His Story stopped at 1979.

To conclude, so that we'll not forget it: a classic duet by Fathead and Yellowman that gave the title to this show.

Let it Play!

Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection (CD Edition)

MESSIAN DREAD PRESENTS A HEAVYWEIGHT DUBWISE SELECTION WITHOUT OBJECTION (CD EDITION)
DUBROOM CD ALBUM RELEASE


More Info

WWW, August 27 2014 - About a week after the release of the Net Album, here came the CD edition of Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection. No less than 16 tracks, a special license for all DJ's and full high quality cover art: it most certainly transcends it's online version. On top of that, obtaining this physical product will show that you are not just serious in your support for (DUB) Reggae Music, but about your own record collection as well. After all, this is a selection of very special tracks featuring legendary names like U Roy, Prince Jazzbo and Dillinger.

Of course, when you're just interested in the music and satisfied with burning your own CD you can simply jump to the Net Album download page and get the CD Quality wave files from there. No problem. This is not a release to make money, this is not even a promotional tool for Messian Dread and/or Dubroom Productions, while most of the vocalists featured on the album absolutely need no promotion either. This is simply an opportunity to get your hands on a physical presentation of the 2014 developments in the Dubroom studio and the reasons to want that can vary.

The reasons for the creation and eventual release of this album didn't vary. It's a selection without objection, after all. A selection documenting the enormous improvement in sound and other quality when compared to pre 2014 Dubroom productions. One reason. A selection that deserves to be presented with the special designed cover art because it tells a story. Another reason. A very special way of saying thank you to all those who have been supportive in one way or another. More reason. A physical quality product that more than justifies the price because it is a valuable addition to any Reggae record collection. Nuff reason.

This is a high quality product like any audio CD. The full color cover art (including on the disc itself) is printed in superior quality and the tracks are exact duplicates of the CD Quality Master Tapes (16 Bit, 44.100 Khz). The album itself was created in a special process at AMAZON.com called Create Space. The musical works, the cover art, getting a UPC number: it took several days of working, tweaking, and reviewing both at the side of the Dubroom and at Amazon's. The process was concluded when the physical review copy was sent to the Dubroom via very snail mail and subsequently approved before it went live at Amazon. In fact, Amazon is the only place where you can actually get the album. 

The price is set at $12.50, which is quite reasonable for 70 minutes of pure heavyweight Dubwise and since Amazon has all these special shipping offers, it's even possible to have it shipped to your doorstep for close to no costs. The CD and cover art are printed on demand exactly like the copy that was physically reviewed and approved at the Dubroom, so you'll have the sign of approval from the Dubroom. Since Amazon is responsible for creating and shipping the exact high quality duplicate of the approved copy, you will have all the Amazon guarantees when it comes to the quality of the physical product itself. In short: The Dubroom approves the album, Amazon certifies you'll get what we approved. 

A labor of love for (DUB) Reggae and the many vocalists present on the album. Purchasing it is an equal "labor" of love for the very same. 

Nuff said.

Messian Dread - Sounds Of His Imperial Dubwise (Dubroom Video)

MESSIAN DREAD - SOUNDS OF HIS IMPERIAL DUBWISE
DUBROOM VIDEO RELEASE

WWW, August 24 2014 - The fifth Dubroom video of this year has that other mix of the two-track release "His Imperial Dubwise". This mix is completely different than the extended one also released at You Tube and so is the video.

Making video's has a lot in common with making Dub. Well, "dub" is also a movie term so yes the commonalities have been established before. Making video's from a Dub track can be very challenging, especially when you want to go a bit further than putting effects on screen.

Anyway, hopefully you like what you hear (and perhaps see).

In The Mean Time... (Messian Dread Update August 21/22 2014)

IN THE MEAN TIME...
MESSIAN DREAD UPDATE AUGUST 22 2014

Read

WWW, August 22 2014 - Yesterday was the conclusion of the official release of my album "Heavyweight Dubwise". During the last twelve days, while one track was released per day, I've been doing all kinds of things. Things, that not only justify this update, but require them. Read about the midi files, about being accused of stealing from a thief, about all my Creative Commons releases, and more.

the midi files

After kind of rising from my online slumber earlier this year, I discovered a new feature at my web hosting provider. I can watch in real-time what happens on the dubroom.org servers, and I do that a few times a week. This helped me tremendously, because I learned that the Midi Files we've released during the early years of this website back in 1997 were way more popular than I thought. 

Truly, I thought it was more a thing people would go to for old times sake, and an "occasional" producer/visitor of studio.dubroom.org.

How wrong I was.

I knew about "Skream", the Dub Step producer that has used our material for his commercial releases without even crediting us. I knew about some other people who used the midi files for non-commercial reasons, but I was absolutely unaware of the enormous popularity. Yes, that page is visited 1000's of times each week. 

All these people who have been visiting that page, have been reading the copyright notices. Notices which basically prevented honest people from spreading the stuff. And so, thieves like Skream got away with it. If these files would have been released in the Creative Commons domain, he would just have been the next to use that particular file. 

I discovered this year, that the Dubroom is visited every day by much (many? dunno my inglish there) more producers than I previously thought. I really thought that studio.dubroom.org got like a few visits a day but that is absolutely not the case. From all over the world people are visiting the studio, reading the tutorials. Even from places you don't expect.

Gradually, things dawned and I started to see connections.

And so I re-released all the midi files into the creative commons domain. 

I pick my battles and ketching vampires like skream is much more of a worldly, carnal thing than I care to deal with actually. I mean, this is a guy who works in a scene very much comparable with Dancehall and Techno, meaning cokane and dollars using immorality and pompous behavior. He's making his fortune doing these things. To be honest I do not want to have one cent of that fortune. So why am I putting so much energy in this whole dead-bury-dead culture, and why do i not realize that of course vampires are there sucking from the source of life by sucking from Jah people.

Yes, what's new? Hm.... It's not like stealing my Inspiration. It's showing lack of contact with the Source of life.

I see that so many people visit the midi page. Skream is not the only one, I am sure of that. None of them want anyone to know about the Midi file, obviously. So this is the best way to counter these parasites without giving them one more minute of the time that Jah gave me to do things. 

you tube

While "everyone" was downloading and -hopefully- listening to my new releases, myself I was diving deep back in the Dubroom's archives, re-discovering some track I totally forgot about, recalling some precious moments and just having a basic good time with these old tracks. 

I wasn't playing the mp3's on my VLC player's play list, though. I was uploading them all to You Tube, but not at the official Dubroom Channel.

You Tube has this nice feature called "Video Editor". Everyone can make their own video using music that is published under Creative Commons on You Tube, or use video material published at You Tube under Creative Commons. I used the last possibility for the official Dubroom video releases I did in the last time, and I thought it would be nice to give something back.

Throughout the years, people have uploaded some of my Creative Commons releases to You Tube and this gave me the inspiration to open my own personal You Tube channel (called "the Dubroom Dread") and start to upload all music that the Dubroom released under Creative Commons. I've loaded each track in Windows Movie Maker, added some information on the screen, and subsequently uploaded the results to my You Tube Channel at www.youtube.com/dubroomdread.

In essence, I'm providing a complete catalogue of well over 300 tracks to the You Tube community. Nicely sorted in play lists, each one with a download link in the description. Music by Sure Dread, Heartical, Jah Roots, and myself, everything nicely sorted with play lists. Yes, still under construction and therefore not yet "officially anounced", but that will come later. 

It's not even the reason why I write this update, even though it can be quite an interesting piece of information for some. Everyone with a You Tube account should be able to click on the "remix this video" button and start using the music on their own account.

an incredible engagement

Then, when I was uploading my tunes, I saw that one of them was flagged with a copyright notice.

Yes, that drove my attention.

I clicked on the link and saw this:


(click to enlarge)

I pressed play and, yes, that was my music. It was during a rather dubbed out piece where I use a specific effect. 

There was a button that enabled me to respond to this really bizarre claim. And so I wrote them about the track and showed them the proof that if in fact the recording was used by the claimer, that claimer had violated mine.

I went on to search for this particular artist and the track he released. I discovered it was all over the Internet, at Itunes, Amazon, all the big names had the track for sale.

Time to actually listen to the track, I pressed play at Amazon.com and to my utmost surprise I discover that this was my tune indeed. It even had my voice, it was the Dub that I released and here and there a little thing was added. Even Skream had done more work than this particular individual. I wrote a review that basically said what the track was and my advice not to buy it. The comment was approved by Amazon within an hour. 

During that hour, I had discovered that this particular artist was trying to make a name for himself in that industry which I have exposed in two books and countless of other publications. Yes, the Christian Industry. His particular track was released a few years back. I discovered a trail wherein this person, year after year, pretended to have produced this track and received one compliment after the other. He was all over the Internet receiving good comments about "his" track, compliments which he responded to with "Thank you". 

A righteous anger awoke.

This was no longer a copyright issue caused by a notice of one of my tracks at You Tube.

This was Jah showing me what these blasphemers had done, once again. Stealing the real thing, "sanctifying" it by totally renaming the track and not giving any indication whatsoever about any other source than their own "inspiration", offering it for sale to an audience that is trained into believing that the Most High orders them to only listen to "sanctified" music. Yes indeed, I have seen that before.

Just like the money changers in the temple, just like the one Peter described in the following scripture:

And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not. (source)

Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; (source)

This guy made merchandise of not just me, but especially his audience. An audience, that believes they should turn to self proclaimed "Gospel Reggae" artists in order to get a blessing from Jesus. A paid blessing. Feigned words, saying he produced this thing. Feeding the flock of Jah, his audience, for filthy lucre.

What a shame. 

What a blasphemy!

Blasphemy? Yes. I didn't mention how this particular artist's name included the Name of the Almighty. Everything he does, he does in the Name of the Most High. The stealing, the misleading, putting the thieved material up for sale, everything.

Of course that is not why I had made the track. That is not why I released it online for free, many years ago. 

I didn't make it to get accused of being a thief, either. 

After all, that was the factual situation. The thief, who stole that track from me, had officially registered his stolen good as his own intellectual property when he put it up for sale. When I then wanted to upload "his" intellectual property to You Tube I got accused for stealing his stolen good. A total reversal of the truth.

Even though everything was easily proven, the situation was far more serious and so I contacted the guy. What followed was a truly bizarre exchange of communication which I would like to share with you. 

I confronted him with the spiritual truth that I just painted in previous paragraphs. Frankly, I asked him how he could maintain such a thing for years in a row and not be confronted with the law written in the hearts of all those that are truly born again. How can you claim to be born again and not be convicted in your heart? I advised him very strongly to consider the words in John 3:16, that quote our Lord saying everyone that believeth in Yesus shall have eternal life.

Initially, my worst fear seemed to materialize in front of my eyes.

He totally ignored everything, and was only interested in a practical work-out. Yes, he would write to all the sites and have them remove the track. Could he still offer it for free, though? 

After pointing out to these specific, very serious things that the apostle Peter wrote about, after my plea for him to check out his position in Christ (if any!), my strong advise to go to the Father with this thing, all he wanted was to hold on to what he got. He could not let go of his stolen good. It was truly, truly painful to witness.

However, not all hope was lost. It took a while before he told me that he had prayed over it and it was his idea that the Lord indeed wanted him to remove everything. I hope he will do what Jah says. That's so much more important than anything else!

in the mean time

I updated the Net Label website and my Ifficial home as well. There are a lot new artist pages and several of them now include You Tube embed's. My Ifficial home now has the right copyright notice with every track, the one page from where you can download all my music is heavily updated as well. Things should absolutely be more clear.

I've got a lot of music to review as well. 

Yes, let me do that.

One Love,
Messian Dread

Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection Track 12: Lone Ranger - Rock And Come In Dubwise

LONE RANGER - ROCK AND COME IN DUBWISE
DUBROOM NET LABEL RELEASE

Album Page at music.dubroom.org

WWW, August 21 2014 - This is the official release date of the 12th and final track of the album "Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection". Here is: Lone Ranger - Rock And Come In Dubwise.

To close of this twelve-track presentation of heavyweight Dubwise selections introducing an equal number of original Dubroom riddims fresh from the studio in August 2014, another legendary MC. It's amazing how the Lone Ranger, just like all these other legends featured on this album, is still strong after all these decades of really hard, hard labor in the world of Reggae Music and Sound Systems everywhere.

The Dub starts of with Don Goliath singing that well known phrase which gave the title to this track. Don't think this is a remake of anything, though. It's not. What it is, is an original "Riddim of respect" if you will. Respect to all those vocalists riding the musical productions and especially those that can and should be considered legends.

Yes, in 2014 everything looks like as if everything happened in one time. There's the mid-late 1960's U Roy became founding father of the Reggae DJ's, followed by Dennis Alcapone. Then came the 1970's, when Dillinger and Trinity became two of the leading voices in the militant Roots Reggae DJ era and Kojak & Liza was formed. Soon after that, the 1980's when Horseman started in the 1980's recording for Greensleeves Records. 

And in fact, it is.

During the introduction, Lone Ranger says: "Later, will be greater. That's what the farmer said to the potato without planting the manipulator". Now, this 2014, could be that later. We've had all kinds of manipulated potatoes in the form of hybridized forms of music taking everything but the true soul of Reggae Music and turn it into whatever it is since these 1960's when the "potato" was planted. 

One thing still stands strong: (DUB) Reggae Music with that soul of Reggae Music firmly in charge. With respect for the Most High, chanting down Babylon with her ism's and schisms. Built on a solid foundation of drum and bass, making responsible use of the freedom that the Most High wants for His children.

Yes, indeed: just a little meditation to close the first full length Messian Dread album since almost a decade.

Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection Track 11: Messian Dread - Crazy But Dubwise

MESSIAN DREAD - CRAZY BUT DUBWISE
DUBROOM NET LABEL RELEASE

Album Page at music.dubroom.org

WWW, August 20 2014 - This is the official release date of the 11th track of the album "Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection". Here is: Messian Dread - Crazy But Dubwise.

This is Dub! Undeniably and unmistakably Dub. This is Dub, from the top to the very last drop. Featuring Assante and US based MC Razaman being dropped into another dimension by an echo machine that tears all the frequencies apart and puts them back again in another galaxy. That's before the very same thing happens with the skanks. Things get so weird that Dillinger drops in and gives the title to this Dub. Which is then subsequently confirmed once again.

Think it's crazy? Well, yes, it is. But it is Dubwise too. And it's an obvious Messian Dread track. The Horn section (recorded in Mad Professor's Ariwa studio) plays a theme very similar to "Ethiopian Dub" (released way back then in the previous century on the debut album "One"), where the drum and bass line are pretty identifiable as well. This is a Dub produced with the love for crazy effects that every Dub Head has.

Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection Track 10: Horseman and Dan man - Robber Dubwise

HORSEMAN AND DAN MAN - ROBBER DUBWISE
DUBROOM NET LABEL RELEASE

Album Page at music.dubroom.org

WWW, August 19 2014 - This is the official release date of the 10th track of the album "Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection". Here is: Horseman And Dan Man - Robber Dubwise.

This is a track for all the rude boys and hooligans. Horseman chants "Riddim", the skanks drop in and the Fire Face Music Horn Section starts to play. The drum and bass drop in, the skanks echo out and the horns get the Dub treatment. Dan Man steps in with a little singing line and when someone calls the police because of yet the next robbery, it's over for the rude boy. "Whatcha gonna do? Him hold you"

Yes, a serious thing yet the track should also be seen as a bit of a lighter one when it comes to, let's say, spiritual contents. After all, this is a track that's part of a full length Dub album, following up a rather serious and spiritual track and predecessing the next one, where the effect machine gets no rest at all. That's not to say that this one is a "filler", though. Not at all, especially not when you like your "dubbing with horns".

Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection Track 9: U Roy - Mash Down Satan Dubwise

U ROY - MASH DOWN SATAN DUBWISE
DUBROOM NET LABEL RELEASE

Album Page at music.dubroom.org

WWW, August 18 2014 - This is the official release date of the 9th track of the album "Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection". Here is: U Roy - Mash Down Satan Dubwise.

Of Course, Daddy U Roy himself does not need an introduction. It simply is an honor for the Dubroom to be able to legally present the founding father of (not just) Reggae MC-ing riding an original Dubroom riddim. Mash Down Satan Dubwise has more than enough lyrics to make it absolutely clear that U Roy is absolutely not intending to take it easy at his old day. He praises the Most High and chants down Babylon continually, morning noon or night. 

Producing the full lyrical track from which this Dub is taken was quite an experience as well, where his enormous experience most definitely was guiding the process even though it came in the form of recorded material. The result is a very carefully dubbed track, that sometimes remincenses King Tubby's style and at other places makes heavy use of effects that weren't around during these early years of Dubwise. This one is a Dub of Raspect.

Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection Track 8: Seamus - Babylon Dubwise

SEAMUS - BABYLON DUBWISE
DUBROOM NET LABEL RELEASE

Album Page at music.dubroom.org

WWW, August 17 2014 - This is the official release date of the 8th track of the album "Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection". Here is: Seamus - Babylon Dubwise.

Actually, this is a very special track on the album and one of the reasons is that there is hardly any knowledge about the singer that's featured on it. Still, this is one very crucial singer as you can hear in this five minutes and fifteen seconds of Dub from a full lyrical track that has at this moment still the "unreleased" status. His voice remincenses Junior Murvin (Police and Thieves) here and there, on top of "just" an overall highly impressive melodic style of singing. 

Starting of with a drum roll and riddim (skank) section soaked in echoes, at the tenth second a Dub siren enters and the drum and bass start playing. The drums (a steppers with a full blown snare) and the bass are of the solid kind, the kind that works very well in a Sound System set with an MC. The Dub is of the straight forward kind, the kind that just waits for some toasting, the kind that makes you wonder about the vocal version.

DUBROOM NET LABEL RELEASE

Album Page at music.dubroom.org

WWW, August 16 2014 - This is the official release date of the 7th track of the album "Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection". Here is: Prince Jazzbo - Rastafari Dubwise, introduced by Lone Ranger.

Actually, it would be more appropriate to speak about an introduction by Lone Ranger, Jazzbo himself and the Fire Face Music Horn Section. "Rastafari Dubwise" is an easy skanker, a Rub a Dub style track that will make you move along with the drum and bass line. While the echoes go from right to left and back again, Jazzbo drops in every now and then, leaving just enough food for thought and meditation about Jah.

Whatever you may think when you hear "Jah Rastafari", truth is that Jah is the One to be feared, the Head of creation. Whatever you may think when you hear "Rastaman" truth is that a true Rastaman is that humble lion Jazzbo speaks about. Whatever you may think when you hear Dubwise, truth is that Rastafari Dubwise is another heavyweight original Dubwise selection straight from the Dubroom studio.

Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection Track 6: Messian Dread - Loving Dubwise

MESSIAN DREAD - LOVING DUBWISE
DUBROOM NET LABEL RELEASE

Album Page at music.dubroom.org

WWW, August 15 2014 - This is the official release date of the 6th track of the album "Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection". It's called: Messian Dread - Loving Dubwise.

Often, the Art of Dub is described as the "Art of Taking Away". How true that is, and how true that is for "Loving Dubwise". Before this track became a Dub, there was quite a quantity of filling instruments: several guitars, even a violin and a quartet of singers: Assante, Tallis, Ras Khaleel and UK based female vocalist Mandy Edge. A truly joyful sound, which is emphasized by the effects. Lots of stereo effects, lots of multi-layered echoes and more technical niceness coming you way!

Both the title and -sparse but effective- lyrical content deal with that thing called Love. Not the slackness kind of love, but the love that makes people stop wars and fighting each other. The kind of love that brings forth fruit in due season, the same love that Kojak described on this very same album: Jah Love. It is Jah Love, that will take you higher.

Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection Track 5: Kojak - Prevailment Of Dubwise

KOJAK - PREVAILMENT OF DUBWISE
DUBROOM NET LABEL RELEASE

Album Page at music.dubroom.org

WWW, August 14 2014 - This is the official release date of the 5th track of the album "Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection". Here is: Kojak - Prevailment Of Dubwise, introduced by Horseman.

Like Horseman says in the introduction: "Now this is the original Dub thing", and so it is. An original Dubroom riddim, written and produced especially for the crucial lyrics by -again- a legendary Jamaican Reggae MC. This one is a Dub from a full-length lyrical track that is unreleased at the time of this writing, but it surely carries enough vocal snippets to het yet another message across: Jah Love will Prevail!

The riddim is easy, but paying attention to the bass will reveal a deeper vibe than a first superficial listen might produce. Kojak's sing-jay style on top, sometimes leaving a long trail of echoes and a skank section that, well, cuts like a razor blade. It's actually a pretty meditative track, because it brings a peaceful vibe yet every now and then some effects pleasantly disturb it just enough to keep you with both feed on the ground.

Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection Track 4: Trinity - Light Of This Dubwise

TRINITY - LIGHT OF THIS DUBWISE
DUBROOM NET LABEL RELEASE

Album Page at music.dubroom.org

WWW, August 13 2014 - This is the official release date of the 4rd track of the album "Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection". Here is the album version of: Trinity - Light Of This Dubwise.

There's one thing that the album version clearly has in common with it's previously released extended Dub version, and that's the obvious Sound System vibe. It starts with the obligatory Dub Siren, and the riddim just asks for an MC (or toaster if you're a bit more old-skool like yours truly). Good thing Trinity drops in and out, just often enough to deliver the message and not so much that you can't speak about a Dub track on a Dub album anymore.

The mixing style of "Light Of This Dubwise" is pretty traditional. It resembles the way a lot of dubs were mixed in the days King Tubby and Scientist were transforming the riddim tracks of Channel One, the days wherein DJ's like Dillinger and Trinity began to break through as well. By no means to be considered an attempt to sound like yesterday, this 2014 has a Trinity delivering a message as strong as "back in the days".

Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection Track 3: Dillinger - Dwell In Love And Dubwise

DILLINGER - DWELL IN LOVE AND DUBWISE
DUBROOM NET LABEL RELEASE

Album Page at music.dubroom.org

WWW, August 12 2014 - This is the official release date of the 3rd track of the album "Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection". Here is the album version of: Dillinger - Dwell In Love And Dubwise.

No, this is not just a shortened version of the previously released extended Dub. It's a completely different mix with a different vibe. Where it lacks the silky backing vocals by Don Goliath, it has Dan Man introducing the track and dropping words here and there during the 3 3/4 minutes of pure Dubwise energy that follows. Where it has less chanting by Dillinger, it contains much more Dub mixing and significantly more militancy in the vibe.

When the riddim drops after about a minute, Dan Man steps in and the effects go totally wild as he speaks. Horns morphing into drums, or is the other way around? The drum and bass drop in and continue for a while, only to stop and give the horns full time as it's soaked in an endless echo. When they drop in again, it takes a while before Dillinger starts to chant, leading us right to the end.

Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection Track 2: Dan Man - Blaze The Dubwise

DAN MAN - BLAZE THE DUBWISE
DUBROOM NET LABEL RELEASE

Album Page at music.dubroom.org

WWW, August 11 2014 - This is the official release date of the 2nd track of the album "Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection". Here is: Dan Man - Blaze The Dubwise.

Striking a match, a bubbling sound, laughing, horns (played by the UK based Fire Face Music collective) dropping in. Dan Man telling us to listen to the versatile sound of "Blaze the Dubwise" as he guides us through this rub a dub style riddim. Fire and water, some intelligence and a lot of blazing effects. Yes, it's about -let's say- Original Ireness which is so much better than original slackness. Keep the fire blazing, hotter than hot. 

As the track progresses you'll hear sliding guitars and sweet synths on top of a pumping drum and bass line, everything mixed into an Ire Dubwise. This is not the kind of fire the wicked shall catch, this is the kind of fire that goes bubbling through the water before it brings what it can bring. The kind of fire that requires intelligence, before it delivers the niceness it can deliver.

Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection Track 1: Dennis Alcapone - Dub The Dub You Dubwise

DENNIS ALCAPONE - DUB THE DUB YOU DUBWISE
DUBROOM NET LABEL RELEASE

Album Page at music.dubroom.org

WWW, August 10 2014 - This is the official release date of the 1st track of the album "Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection". Here is: Dennis Alcapone - Dub The Dub You Dubwise.

The track opens as if it were a normal Reggae tune: full horns and skank section (recorded at Ariwa studio) playing the introduction, a drum roll, Dennis Alcapone drops in and starts to chant. Then, the echo machine is turned on and the track stops, gets a rewind and starts again. This time, it's heavy Dub as the horn section turns into a sharp razor and Dennis Alcapone runs through all sides of the echo chamber. 

It's the opening of the track as well as the album. Indeed, heavyweight dubwise with a very clear message running through in the same time. The drums and instruments are at times completely transformed into what sounds like a Steel Drum, while Dennis Alcapone jumps in and out delivering words for meditation.

Video Release - His Imperial Dubwise (Extended)

MESSIAN DREAD - HIS IMPERIAL DUBWISE (EXTENDED) | OFFICIAL VIDEO
DUBROOM VIDEO RELEASE

 

WWW, August 8 2014 - This is the official video for the extended version of His Imperial Dubwise. The video was produced August 7/8 2014, the music a few months earlier.

The track can be downloaded for free at: http://messiandread.dubroom.org/sounds-trax-197.htm
Available: High Quality MP3 and CD Quality Wave Audio

Now, perhaps you are interested in not just the music but the other contents of the audio (and video) as well. A very good thing indeed.

Please read on.

This video -as well as the audio- contains historical footage that has -perhaps unfortunately- lost not one ounce in relevance. It contains a message for all, but since this was taken from a speech in front of world wide evangelists there is an extra dimension for those (that claim to be) Born Again Christians and yet can only come with negative statements concerning His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I Of Ethiopia.

Here are some questions, adressed in the music and even stronger in the video:

Why is it that your average Christian can only say about the Emperor, that he "is not God"? Could it be the propaganda machine of the "Christian Industry" that tries to keep it's customers -the faithfull- far away from the Freedom Sounds called Reggae Music and the knowledge about the Ethiopian Connection in the Bible? Could it be the result of a form of racism that claims how there is a "Judeo-Christian Civilization" in what the Rastaman and many others have rightly identified as Babylon System? Could it be, that a true "Judeo-Christian" Civilization has existed almost from the day our Lord was crucified and rose again?

Where Ethiopia is mentioned almost at the first page of the Bible and in many passages afterwards, a pattern arises that can not be ignored by serious scholars of the Holy Scriptures.

Moses' wife was Ethiopian and Jah punished the racists who protested against that marriage.

The first official representant of any government that heard and accepted the Gospel of Jesus Christ was the Ethiopian Noble Man, who brought back the gospel to a country that was already serving the Most High through the knowledge of King Solomon.

Talking about a real "Judeo-Christian Civilization"!

And so, this video is many things.

First and foremost, this is a wake up call for all born again Christians who think that they are serving God when they denegrate Haile Selassie. Where only portions of Billy Graham's introduction of Haile Selassie to an audience of world-wide evangelists back in 1966 is used, listening to the whole speech (without music) would definitely break down that wall of ignorance even more.

In the same time, this is a wake-up call for those that think Rastafari and Christian livity do not go together or worse: must fight each other. You know who you are, warriors in what is definitely not the good fight even though you might think you are fighting the good fight.

Equally, this video is a livication (rather than a deadication) to all people of all colour who do fight the good fight. The fight against racial injustice, the spiritual fight against spiritual wickedness in high places.

A livication to Billy Graham, who back in 1966 introduced Haile Selassie as "Chief of State who can greet us in the Name of Jesus Christ". In a time where in his own "christian" country apartheid and "christianity" was seen as similar, Billy Graham pointed to a different direction.

Studio Dubroom Website Review: Loop Masters

LOOP MASTERS
DUBROOM WEBSITE REVIEW


Read Review/Visit Site

WWW, August 2014 - When you're involved or interested in music production, it's almost impossible to not notice how many websites carry advertisements of LOOPMASTERS.com. When you've recently visited Studio Dubroom or enjoyed the music we've released since April this year, it's even totally impossible to not know about this website. Messian Dread reviews the "Sample Boutique" from his perspective as an online (DUB) Reggae producer.

It was somewhere in the beginning of 2014, that I was browsing the Web in search for some material to use in my music. I had been kind of silent for quite some years, and one of the reasons for that was that I was kind of finished with the sounds that I had produced for some years. Finished with my virtual brass section, finished with my own vocals, and very much impressed by more recent online works from Net Labels mainly in the digital spectrum.

I have this thing with in-your-face digital Dub and other Roots Reggae. I love it, I can make hours and hours of DJ mixes carrying the sounds. I can't, however, produce it myself. It's simply not there, in my soul. At least, not at this moment. After several failed attempts which I don't even want to discuss, I felt myself kind of stuck between the stuff I produced earlier and, well, something I wasn't really sure of.

In this state of mind, I was kind of looking on the Internet for some stuff to work on, or with. Typing all kinds of key-words into the search engine, getting all kinds of websites with shady contents that might be nice for some private productions but for the rest has, let's say, legally questionable material. Sure, it would be nice to download an Acapella by let's say Luciano and be able to create a musical work with it that you can release, right? Well, forget such niceness when you use shady websites like the ones I just described.

Someone once said, in a different context: "Do as they say, not as they do". I took that principal at hand, and went on to look for a legal variety. Is it possible, to get some good quality legal vocal material, preferably of the authentic kind? This is where I discovered just why almost every website with advertisements has this banner linking to LOOPMASTERS.com.

Usually and like "everyone", I ignore banners and ads when I visit a website. The times that I've actually clicked on an ad because I was interested in the site can be counted using the fingers of one hand, and I'm online since the early 1990's. Being the "rebel" that I am, the more I see an ad the less I'm likely to click on it. The reason why I did visit the Loop Masters' website therefore had nothing to do with the publicity. The reason was simply I was looking for legal material, especially vocals, and my search engine gave me the link. The only link.

Now, a few months later, I can only conclude that Loop Masters is the one-stop for most of the most authentic and legal online source material for the production of (DUB) Reggae Music. This is not my suggestion for a slogan to use in yet another banner, it is my personal conclusion at this moment. A conclusion which I would like to share, without apology but with reasoning.

The first thing that I noticed, was a familiar name: Dubmatix. This Canadian producer is without the shadow of a doubt living up to his last name "King" when it comes to Dub and the North American continent. He knows his music, he knows his vocalists and he knows his studio. I looked further and discovered they had a sample pack with material from none other than Mad Professor. My fingers started to itch as I was clicking my mouse. However, I wasn't jumping to the "Sample Boutique" as they very pleasantly describe themselves to get Drum loops and such things. 

This is when I discovered what would become source material for literally all my productions this year, both released and (yet) unreleased or even unfinished. Source material for 10's and 10's of tracks, perhaps even well over a 100. Quality source material, for prices that make you laugh. Authentic quality source material, of which the first serious online review is yet to be written. This review -and the product reviews the Dubroom already published- is only the beginning of a serious promotion campaign to right that blatant wrong. 

Now, do I seriously think that Loop Masters is waiting for a Dubroom review to get customers? Absolutely not. In fact, I am convinced that they have a good running business and probably didn't even notice how the Dubroom reviewed one of it's products only days after it's release (Mad Professor's Reel to Reel Reggae Volume Two). The overwhelming major part of Loop Master's catalogue is aimed at the producer of Electronic Dance Music or EDM, so they're obviously not depending on "our kind of people" (Dub/Reggae producers). 

A kind of independence that -in the case of LOOPMASTERS.com- provides quality of the highest -read: non-commercial- kind.

Let me put it in other words, more blatant. The music we love, (DUB) Reggae, is commercially not attractive. You will not score a world hit with a Dub tune. At least, not yet. There is no strict commercial interest that will drive a provider of Samples and other Soundware to offer (DUB) Reggae related material. There must be some other reason for Loop Masters to offer the things they do, and I can come up with nothing else but a pure love for Reggae. 

So, what I'm reviewing here is actually not really the website LOOPMASTERS.com but rather the things you, as a producer of (DUB) Reggae music can find there. Yes, there is much more than what was already reviewed here in the Dubroom and even though eventually all interesting products will get their own review, you might not want to wait any longer after reading what you're about to read.

Get ready.

Readers and visitors will have read about "Roots Step", a very contemporary form of Roots Reggae that appeals to lovers of DubStep and other forms of contemporary digital stuff. Roots Step is a sound by Berlin based producer DON GOLIATH, who has been interviewed because of his remarkable musical works. His countless tracks feature legendary vocalists like U Roy, Trinity, Dillinger, Kojak, Lone Ranger, and Prince Jazzbo. Others feature more younger but crucial singers like Ras Khaleel, Clifton Yeates, Seamus, Kamouflage, Kontent, Masta Jay, Assante and Tallis. Or MC's like Piracy, Lion Tafari, and Jah Rooti. 

Wait.

It's rather difficult not to notice that some of these names feature in more recent Dubroom productions and in case you've wondered just how it is possible for the Dubroom to produce a Dillinger track, now you know. 

No, Don Goliath and I have not both been shopping at LOOPMASTERS.com. In fact, this is where I got introduced to this name, as Don Goliath is the one who provided the UK based sample boutique with 10's of acapellas he used for his own productions. Original acapellas, proven by the fact that many of the vocalists talk about the Don. 

Under the name "Don Goliath - Reggae And Dub Acapellas Vol. 1-6", LOOPMASTERS.com offers full length lyrical acapellas including a license (quite important). Each volume has a number of tracks. You can buy a volume and pay less per track, or you can -like I did- pay a little more but only get the ones you want. A little nit-picking, because when you're looking at the prices you start to wonder why there is so little music found online that was created with one or more of the acapellas.

Usually, when there's not a sale you will pay around 8 Euros per track. Immediately after you make a purchase, you get "virtual cash" in your account, which is about 10-15% of the money you just spent. You can use this "virtual cash" with a next purchase. When there's a sale, you can get an acapella for as low as five euros this way. Again, this includes a legal license to use the vocal works in your own productions.

When I discovered LOOPMASTERS.com I could not believe that I had never heard any track featuring the vocal works before, in particular with prices like these. I see some non-commercial artists using acapellas from shady sites or jingles from albums that "everyone" knows, with the result that their own productions are shady and can never be seriously considered. This ridiculously cheaply priced series from Don Goliath -and other vocal releases at LOOPMASTERS.com- should put an end to that, in my opinion.

Sure, there are many who -for one reason or another- are unable to perform online payments. Still, this can not be an excuse not to pay attention to the website or the sample packs they offer. It's what I did when I first visited the website: I downloaded the free demo files from all the Reggae vocal packs at the website and some other stuff as well, like Mad Professor's Reel to Reel Reggae. In itself, this was almost the weight of a complete sample pack but that wasn't the only fun these free downloads gave me. They included a license too!

Check this quote, straight from the Loop Masters website:

The demo loops are covered by our General Licence Terms meaning you can use them in your commercial productions with no further royalty payments. If you do use them commercially we would very much appreciate you purchasing the full pack in order to help support our Artists producing the packs, more releases and free samples.

Source: http://support.loopmasters.com/knowledgebase/articles/242293-free-samplepacks-what-can-i-do-with-them

This simply means, that every online artist can -should- register at LOOPMASTERS.com, receive a free welcome pack and start downloading the demo files. It's free and gives your releases a legal foundation, which is not just relevant for obvious reasons: it is a sign of (self-) respect as well.

It did not take me too long before I wanted more than the free packs I downloaded. These free packs, however, had already brought me on a next level. Remember, I was kind of looking for material because I hadn't been producing anything for years because I was finished with my sound. I had found the source material I was looking for. This was indeed a financial investment, but even without any purchase I have done at LOOPMASTERS.com I had material for many, many tracks. Licensed material, that is.

For me, the Loop Masters boutique has provided me with just the right material to improve my sound to a next level. Something which in my idea can easily be recognized just by playing stuff I currently release and comparing it with my older stuff, like on my album "Showcase". No, I am not talking about easy-to-build tracks. In reviews I hope to publish later on the Don Goliath series, this will become very clear. I am talking about inspiring material that challenges me to go beyond what I used to do. Material that is educational, too.

I wasn't asked or paid to do this review. I wrote it because it is my work to promote (DUB) Reggae Music. Even my own productions and releases can and should be seen in that context. I think that when properly used, the material that LOOPMASTERS.com has for the average online (DUB) Reggae artist/producer can serve as a resource to improve the quality of many, many works.

When you're serious about your work, a visit to LOOPMASTERS.com is almost as obligated as having a computer in the first place.

Without apology.

One Love,
Messian Dread

Trinity - Light Of This Dubwise ~ Dillinger - Dwell In Love And Dubwise (Extended Versions)

TRINITY - LOVE OF THIS DUBWISE/DILLINGER - DWELL IN LOVE AND DUBWISE (EXTENDED VERSIONS)
DUBROOM NET LABEL RELEASE

More Info and Download

WWW, August 2014 - Two Heavyweight Dubwise tracks in their extended version, both carrying the voices of two Heavyweight Reggae MC's each with their own impressive career dating back to the 1970's when Dillinger made a world hit with "cokane in my brain" while Trinity voiced the now absolutely classic Jesus Dread for Yabby You. Listen how they sound on the original Dubroom riddims in this fully legal and licensed free virtual 12", and then get ready for the full length DUB album that follows after this release. 

Granted: most 12" vinyl releases will carry Discomixes that sometimes last up until 9 minutes, where the two tracks on this release together last about eleven minutes. However, the longer a track the less room there is for a good bass and that's the reason why this release is brought to you as a virtual twelve inch maxi single: this is Sound System Style Dubwise and that means nuff bass!

TRINITY - LIGHT OF THIS DUBWISE (EXTENDED)

The track opens with the typical Sound System DUB Siren, while Trinity starts introducing the track and the Name of the Light of this world, when the basds drops in, the drums follows and there is a militant style stepper with nuff space for MC's to add their own lyrics without forgetting the fact that this is a Messian Dread Dub and that means nuff Dub mixing as well. 

DILLINGER - DWELL IN LOVE AND DUBWISE (EXTENDED)

With excellent backing vocals from none other than Don Goliath, Dillinger's part of this two-track release has a less militant yet equally strong Roots vibration. On the other hand, the Dub mixing is more intense in this one. The horns, recorded in Mad Professor's Ariwa studio, are completely transformed at times. Like the vocals, that is. More than enough message in this one, too!

Both tracks also appear on the full-length album MESSIAN DREAD PRESENTS A HEAVYWEIGHT DUBWISE SELECTION WITHOUT OBJECTION, available for free download and physical CD with full Artworks.

1. Trinity - Light Of This Dubwise Extended (5:26)
2. Dillinger - Dwell In Love And Dubwise Extended (5:46)

Please do not re-publish the actual music, because unlike Dubroom releases before 2014, this release is © Messian Dread/Dubroom. Available for free: 128 Kbps/320 Kbps MP3 Files, CD Quality Wave Audio.

Radio Dubroom Extra Chapter 3: The Genius Mad Professor

THE GENIUS MAD PROFESSOR
RADIO DUBROOM EXTRA CHAPTER 3


Chapter Page

WWW, August 2014 - To illustrate the words of the Dubroom's review on Mad Professor and his countless works from his ARIWA studio's with some heavyweight power Dub sounds, here is Chapter three of Radio Dubroom Extra. This chapter contains two hours and twenty minutes of stricktly Ariwa material from the early 1980's to more recent times. 

The Mad Professor has done so many things with so many singers and players of instruments that it is impossible to claim to give a "complete overlook" or whatever. This mix, too, does not give credit enough to the works of Neil Fraser aka the Mad Professor. However, it's selected with care, and mixed in a no-nonsense style without too much extra effects and jingles and thing.

Put on your headphones or even better: turn on your speakers and subwoofers and make a joyfull noise in your neighborhood. Or google the album titles that come with each title.
