DUBROOM MP3 REVIEW
WWW, December 2007 - What do you do when your local Record Shop sells all it's vinyl for just 50 Dollar cents each, including a massive collection of Joe Gibbs 12" and LP's?
Before you sell them all on E-bay and make quite some money with it, you make sure you have the stuff on your Hard Disk and create a crucial Podcast so that each and everyone can share in the rejoicement.
Joe Gibbs, of course, is a well-known Reggae Producer whose large catalogue of releases include every name in the business and beyond. His "African DUB" series belong to the essentials and his 12" releases are well sought-after by avid collectors of Jamaican Music who are prepared to pay a lot of money of sites like E-bay for just a vinyl release.
But never mind the games that the collectors play among themselves.
Let's just enjoy the music, for it really is about the music and no money can buy or sell what music can give. Let's enjoy the seven tunes Sleeper selected for us, because each and every one fits in the "all-killer-no-filler" category.
The seven selections in Sleeper's 11th episode of great Podcasts all come in the same format: First we have the singers singing, then the mix goes over in DUB style and the MC takes the mike in his hand.
