Dubroom Online - Edition October 4, 2007


WWW, October 4 2007 - When Bob Marley and the Wailers toured the world, Peter Tosh was doing the same with an all-star band including Sly and Robbie to back him up.

Tosh was by the far the most militant of all Wailers, and his concerts were intense experiences. To hear and see the concert he did on the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1979 will confirm thins.

Remixes, sound effects and lots of bass can be felt by listening to the Rootsman Skanking podcast by the Ambassada Hi Power Sound System.

Nuff niceness for today, when you're a Rootsman that is!

Give Thanks, One Love,

Dubroom (DUB) Reggae Video Review

WWW, September 2007 - Almost three decades after the event, young and old will still be amazed by this massive performance of the Militant Wailer.

The story is well-known. Bob Marley, Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh formed the original (Wailing) Wailers back in the 1960's and subsequently they went their own way.

Like Bob Marley, Peter Tosh made his own specific style within the rhythm of Reggae. Sharp guitars, fat productions, a lot of vibes resembling -then- popular forms of Rock music.

Peter Tosh was by far the most militant of the three original Wailers. His typical -wailing- style of singing, combined with his dreadful appearance made you really want to pay attention to what he had to say.

In this video, we will see Peter Tosh performing with an all-star list of Reggae Musicians including Sly and Robbie who are -needless to say- playing a solid foundation of drum and bass.

The concert is one long line of Word Sound and Power. Impressive introductions and bridges between tracks, long improvisations on themes, it's all there.

MP3 Podcast: Rootsman Skanking (King David Style)


WWW, October 2007 - Presented in classic Sound System style, this one-hour mix of conscious and spiritual Roots Reggae Music will definitely keep the Rootsman Skanking.

King David loved conscious and spiritual music. That's why he wrote so many lyrics (called Psalms) and was known for playing music that would drive the bad vibes away.

Kind of like spiritual and conscious Roots Reggae today, as I would say..

King David Style, as DJ Ian Irie from the Ambassada Sound System would say and play!

The mix is filled with special versions, remixes and unknown versions of well-known artists such as Johnny Clarke and Barry Brown. There's riddims from several times, showing how King David Style is Iniversal and Iternal.

The Rootsman is skanking, indeed. King David is skanking. King Selassie I is skanking. I and I rejoice to the rhythm of the drum and bass line and give thanks to the Highest One once again!
