DUBROOM MP3 REVIEW
WWW, December 2007 - Two Conscious European based Sound Systems meet in Brixton for a friendly clash. Three hours of Roots and Culture and we already had two.
Will the last part of The Arch triplet contain a climax?
Both the French based Steppin' Youth as well Cool Runnings, which hail from Suomi Finland, know their Reggae. When they met at the Arch in 2005, it wasn't so much a clash of Sound Systems but more a joining of forces in Love and Inity.
We've had two hours, in which the two Sound Systems presented their material. Obviously, the atmosphere is getting more and more Ire and in the third part we are treated to a number of DUB Plates by Max Romeo, Prince Alla and Yami Bolo as well as a number of killer selections.
The Two Sound Systems are obviously each other's equal in weight, and together they just mean double trouble for Babylon. They're not out there to fight each other, but to provide Roots and Culture to the massive.
Does the third part have a climax? You bet it does. "One Love", in the ancient 1960's Wailers version recorded at Studio One. And "Can't Live In A Tenement Yard", sung by Edi Fitzroy in Digital Steppers Style.
