DUBROOM MP3 REVIEW
WWW, March 2008 - MIXED UP MOODS VERSION TWO brings us an overview of Jamaican Music from the last several decades. In a very interesting mix, we are being treated to known and -more appealing- unknown material, carefully selected by Brooklyn-based DJ Dr. Tahl.
Reggae Music has the ability to absorb the vibes-of-the-times in a way that no other music is able to do. Toots and the Maytalls once made a tune about it, called "Reggae got Soul", but you can easily say that Reggae has Rock or Reggae has Techno.
This very fact becomes clear when you listen to the first tunes in DJ Dr. Tahl's second edition of Podcasts he called "Mixed Up Moods". Very soulful, very Reggae too... It was the music of the seventies, but because Reggae is still Reggae, the music will also appeal to young people of today, which cannot be said about most -dated!- Soul Music.
Mixed Up Moods Version Two simply gives us an overview of several decades. Decades wherein Reggae Music may have changed in presentation and instrumentation, but not in strength and power.
