DUBROOM MP3 REVIEW
WWW, February 2008 - The UK based Reggaenews website has our attention for a long time now. They introduced us to some very interesting artists and bands and with the start of the Reggaenews Podcast we can only give thanks and praise once more.
In just eight titles, of which only one comes without (excellent) DUB version, the first episode of the Reggaenews Podcast takes us back to studios in Jamaica, the USA and the UK.
In chronological order, that is...
And in a no-nonsense style too!
The show starts with a couple of older Jamaican releases, of which especially the legendary King Tubby DUB of Cornell Campbells "Two-Face Rasta" stands out. After a couple of US based releases, we go straight to the UK and listen to some 10" releases by the independent SHEMESH label which at the time the Podcast was mixed were still unreleased.
This is the kind of Podcast that has something for everyone, and the fact that all titles come from vinyl will also be pleasing in the ears of certain ones who can still not get used to the digital sound of the CD.
Get this one while it's still around!
