Consciousness In Cyberspace (2) (Webmaster Column)

Dubroom Online - Edition December 19, 2007


WWW, December 19 2007 - There's an ancient prophecy in the Book of Life, that says: "In the End, knowledge will increase as many will do research and move to and fro".
A perfect description of the Internet, wouldn't you say so?

The message in Conscious Reggae Music is very much related to the message recorded in the ancient Book of Life.
It is a message that deserves and even demands further research. Research that could not be done until the Internet would open up to the general public.

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

The Arch 2005 - Part Two (MP3 Review)


WWW, December 2007 - The second part of the friendly Sound Clash between the Finnish Cool Runnings and the French Steppin' Youth takes the listener further into the upfull realms of Reggae Music.

"Consciousness" is a word that pops up every now and then when you deal with Reggae Music. It is a word that indicates many things, and the debate about just what Consciousness is will keep going on until JAH Kingdom finally come.

Whatever your particular view may be, you will not deny that Steppin' Youth and Cool Runnings deal with Consciousness too. Their musical selections, their talk in the mike and the overall vibrations speak volumes in that respect.

The second part of their friendly Soundclash contains a lot, and that means a lot, of Conscious material. The tunes are strong, the message is penetrating and will not leave much room for interpretation either.

Take it, or leave it, as they say...

But you better take it!

Steel Pulse - State Of Emergency (Live) (Video Review)

Dubroom (DUB) Reggae Video Review

WWW, December 2007 - Emerged from the Punky Reggae Party back in the 1970's, UK based Reggae band Steel Pulse still stands strong as we can see in the 9 minutes of this video.

Steel Pulse has a very special way of getting the message across.

Their music is their own special kind of Reggae, which some would call commercial. You couldn't say this about the message, though, which makes the band kind of special.

It was Bob Marley who started this tradition of playing in a way that will appeal to a world-wide audience hooked on commercial music, but with an undiluted message.

Watch the band as they play decades-old tune that hasn't lost one bit of it's relevance in word and sound.
