DUBROOM MP3 REVIEW
WWW, December 2007 - It only takes our host a few seconds to introduce himself and the 15th episode of the House of Reggae. What follows is another hour of crucial niceness presented in an Irie atmosphere.
The show opens and ends with a tune by vocalist Ken Boothe, of who we know a lot after listening to House Of Reggae part 15.
Of course, because in the mean time we have seen how Ian's House Of Reggae does much more than just taking the music to our ears: we are provided with back-ground information for which research was done especially for the show itself.
His original concept of Reggae Info-tainment has provided our host with something as well, because the House Of Reggae has a well deserved place on the top of Reggae Podcasts.
In this episode, Brother Ian tells us -among many other things- all about the rising of the Discomix.
It was the time wherein "Disco Music" was hot and extended mixes were released on 12" vinyl, creating a whole new genre of releases in the Reggae market as well. We're treated to several great examples of the extended mix with fatter bass than on LP or 7".
Another great episode of a Podcast series that has proven it's right to existence and actually adds something to the enormous wealth of material out there.
