DUBROOM MP3 REVIEW
WWW, December 2007 - With the recent release (and Dubroom review) of a video documentary "Summer Sound In Canada", shot entirely in 1970's, it's clear: Reggae has a history in Canada and it goes back several decades.
Willy Williams, Johnny Osbourne, Jammy's, Jackie Mittoo: several Jamaican names in Reggae have lived in Canada or keep living there until this day. Where the rest of the world thinks about Canada as just another word for the North-Pole, in reality there are some very interesting things to be discovered when you're into Reggae and we are, right?
We already met Mick Sleeper, as this is the review of his 13th Podcast and we've been to all 12 that went before this one. We know, that he knows his Reggae and gladly shares some of his collection with us.
Did we know, that he hails from somewhere in Canada?
Well, we will after listening to this mix.
He plays a massive selection of stricktly Canadian Reggae productions, and so we will know about a lot of Canadian artists that need to be heard by the online (DUB) Reggae community as well.
Upfull Rub a Dub, deep Dub and foundational Roots Reggae: everything is well represented and definitely serves as a teaser, as you want to discover more about Roots and Culture in that country just north of the U S of A.
