DUBROOM MP3 REVIEW
WWW, January 2008 - From heavyweight contemporary UK DUB to King Tubby with Sly and Robbie and everything in between and beyond, Stop that Train Number Ten has it all!
Yours truly once played a set of stricktly Digital contemporary DUB styles during an event where all kinds of electronic styles were present. Stricktly electronica, even.
You can imagine the surprise when someone came and asked the question: "Do you have Reggae?"...
Where it might be true that some or even many Reggae lovers may not apprecilove the deep and foundational digital DUB production of let's say the last 10 years, the same can be said about Dancehall and Reggaeton.
Well, the tenth episode of the excellent Stop That Train podcast show in reverse chronology just where this digital DUB music comes from and to those that know their Drum and Basslines it should not be a surprise where we eventually land.
When Scotty tells us it is time to draw our brakes as we have moved back in time far enough, the point is already made and even the most staunch Reggae preterist will at least have heard what (s)he would call "Reggae".
For the rest of us: enjoy another hour of crucial material!
