DUBROOM MP3 REVIEW
WWW, March 2008 - Step It In A Digital Style? Step It In Different Digital Styles could also be said, as this Podcast shows us eight different styles in eight different titles. Heavy DUB, an interesting remake of the classic "Smoking My Ganja", and words of the respectable Haile Selassie and MLK: let's step it!
This podcast surely gives an interesting insight in the many ways digitally based producers can work. The choice of the selection is remarkable and well thought out, while the music is presented in a no-nonsense style to let the music speak for itself.
Some cross the realms of Reggae to explore other regions, where others enter from these regions into the realm of Reggae.
We hear an interesting remake of the Drum Song Riddim and an even more interesting remake by the Soothsayers Horns of what was (one of the first) releases on the now legendary UK based Greensleeves Label: A ska-ish tune called Smoking Mi Ganja, originally performed by the band Capital Letters.
Step It! In A Digital Style will definitely have some very pleasant moments for those that usually do not like a digital style, even for those that usually look for a Reggae-only Podcast.
