DUBROOM MP3 REVIEW
WWW, December 2007 - An uplifting selection of massive Roots Reggae Music, starting with Dillinger's Ragnampaza: get ready for 55 minutes of pure niceness for Jah Children.
Vocalists, DJ's and DUB engineers: all well represented in Killer Roots. A great non-stop no-nonsense mix that you want to play again and again because of the strong vibes destined to kill of all the bad vibes.
All Killer, No Filler, and still there are highlights that stand out. The opening track, for example: one of Dillinger's most energetic tunes ever and that says something.
Another one is Prince Alla's vision of the Great Stone, followed by King Tubby's legendary DUB version of the track of which the King of DUB himself said it came from "somewhere".
The mix itself has an emphasis on 1970's Roots Rock Reggae, and contains a fair representation of several relevant producers and studio's.
Next to King Tubby's, there Lee Perry's Black Ark, for example. It was there, that Junior Marvin recorded his classic "Police and Thieves" as well as the prophetic "Tedious" that may very well come true in our time as many think.
A third highlight, by the way...
Killer Roots, indeed. You want to have this 55 minutes, because you want to play it more than once!
