DUBROOM MP3 REVIEW
WWW, January 2008 - UK based Reggae Music has a history almost as long as Jamaican Reggae. A history that has, next to the obvious similarities, a number of significant differences. One of these differences is perfectly illustrated in the 5th episode of the Potcast.
You guessed it: one hour of stricktly heavyweight (electronic) DUB, UK Style. Electronic devices and militant basslines form two main ingredients of this DUB experience extra-ordinary, as we are being introduced to a style of Reggae that truly fund it's origin in the UK based studio's of JAH Shaka, Adrian Sherwood, Mad Professor and Dennis Bovell.
We won't find an all-star list in this show, though. Next to well known engineers like Steve Vibronics and Ariwa's very own Mad Professor, we're taken into deep space by a number of lesser known producers as well.
Relaxed One Drop rhythms have their place next to ultra militant Steppers drums. The long echo's and other unidentified flying phased-out sound effects accompany us from the top to the very last drop of yet another great episode of this Potcast.
Not for the weakhearts!
