Evaluating 2007 (4)

Dubroom Online - Edition December 25, 2007


WWW, December 25 2007 - Bandwidth, bandwidth, bandwidth. If there is one thing that dominated the Internet, it is the enormous growth of the Internet.

Online Videos took an enormous rise, with the result that the Dubroom contains 100's of reviews of great video material.

But to call 2007 the year if the Online Video, would not give credit to that other phenomenon: Podcasting!

Hours and hours of great programming: from authentic Sound Systems to historical edutainment to carefully selected compilations, Podcasting is here to stay.

Give Thanks, One Love,

Ghetto Organ Style (MP3 Review)

Ghetto Organ Style (MP3 Review)


WWW, December 2007 - When Toots and the Maytalls performed their track "Reggae Got Soul", they could very well have the Ghetto Organ riddim in mind.

One-Riddim CD's are usually interesting for DJ's who like to play a different version all the time. On their Podcasts, for example. For there is a big difference between a CD and a Podcast.

that's why One-Riddim Podcasts need to have some relevance, for even the most staunch lover of Reggae Music will not really like to listen to just one riddim for let's say half an hour or -in the case of this podcast- three quarters.

They will like Ghetto Organ Style, though.

The Ghetto Organ riddim itself is very soulful. You'll hear it as soon as you downloaded the Podcast and start to play it. The tune you will hear may not be recognized as Reggae at all!

As the mix goes further, we discover just how strong and flexible Reggae Music really is. Yes, Jamaican Music is known to absorb and integrate the vibes-of-the-times, but not too many people will realize just how far this goes.

The music definitely is timely. Throughout the whole show, we will not leave the realms of the 1970's even though the theme of the riddim (Living In The Ghetto) hasn't lost one bit of it's actuality...
