(Dub) Reggae and Consciousness (2)

Dubroom Online - Edition October 8, 2007


WWW, October 8 2007 - The research we do, for example concerning Babylon System, isn't always that joyful. In fact, it's actually quite negative.

We will increase our consciousness when we know what's going on, but if we only let ourselves be intimidated by the forces of evil we will be downpressed in spite of the fact we know what's going on.

That's why the Dubroom doesn't just promote (DUB) Reggae and Consciousness, we very much promote this combination, too. Because Reggae Music gives strength and encouragement, even in the music itself.

Give Thanks, One Love,
Messian Dread (Dubroom Webmaster)

Video: Yellowman Live at Reggae Sunsplash

Dubroom (DUB) Reggae Video Review

WWW, September 2007 - Yellowman was a remarkable personality when he came to the scene during the Rub a Dub days. See a great performance on Reggae Sunsplash during these days.

Yellowman (Winston Foster) made his reputation at his excellent live performances on the Aces Disco Sound System. Like no other, he was able to improvise lyrics live and direct. He was even featured on the first even live dancehall album to be officially released.

In 1982, Yellowman is simply called "King Yellowman". That's why he's one of the guests of the Reggae Sunsplash festival. He rules the dance and even more than that.

It wasn't easy for King Yellow to reach to the top. He sings open and without any censorship about it, while the audience receives every word with pleasure while they give him the respect he deserves.



MP3 Podcast: House of Reggae #8


WWW, October 2007 - It's time to pay another visit to Ian's House of Reggae once again for a healthy portion of Word Sound and Power, carefully selected and presented by our host.

The House of Reggae definitely has a special place in the Reggae Podosphere. Especially for people who -like our host- want to know more about the music.

Almost every track comes with interesting data, for which research is done. It's the kind of information that will enhance the pleasure of your listening experience and help you find more music that you like.

In this episode, we're taken through a wide variety of styles and times again. From an obscure Dillinger recording for Sir Coxsone Dodd's Studio One to a minimalistic Beenie Man tune, even a Soul track that served as a B-side is played.

A superb episode of a series that is getting better and better each time!
