DUBROOM MP3 REVIEW
WWW, March 2008 - The US-based DUB SESSION Podcasts brings us yet another side of DUB in a stream of electronic Drum and Bass driven Riddims. One riddim follows the other in a tripped out Session, perfectly mixed by host DJ Chill Will.
DUB SESSION it is called, and a DUB Session it sure is! After an initial announcement by our host, we dive straight into the deep with some heavy drum and bass driven music by Mad Professor, DUB Syndicate as well as collectives who may not be considered by the Reggae puritans.
As contemporary Dancehall and Reggaeton more often than not stray from the original concept of Reggae Music, so does a lot of electronic music called DUB. However, the true lover of DUB sees those elements of Reggae that (s)he loves amplified rather than taken out.
DUB SESSIONS introduces us to another way of enjoying Reggae and/or DUB, as one riddim after the other comes to us in the style and tradition of Electronica shows: longs parts with(out) Drum and Bass, soundscapes and synthesizer effects galore, everything without (too much) nonsense to break the extremely good vibes.
