DUBROOM MP3 REVIEW
WWW, October 2007 - In this deep DUBWISE experience, we will visit France, Austria, the UK, South Africa and Dominica for some crucial "Fruits Music" from the last 17 years.
Arguable, the UK and the European continent have been more receptive for DUB techniques and music than America, perhaps even Jamaica. Some of the strongest drum and basslines are created right there, in the midst of Babylon, even influencing people to create music that will cross the borders of Reggae, but not those of DUB.
Maybe it has to do with the fact that Europe can also be considered the musical center of the world when it comes to deep, electronic effect driven music. For DUB was one of the first styles to fit that description, if not the first.
In "Shuffle", we will be treated to a number of crucial European productions, accompanied by one from the mother land: South Africa. The kind of music that will on one hand make you feel completely chilled-out, while on the other hand some deep drum and bass ensure a steady pace.
Reggae purists will wonder just how much "Reggae" is left in some of the mixes, but if you listen close you will not really ask that question. Not everything may be "Roots Reggae", but it can definitely described as "Fruits Reggae"!
