DUBROOM MP3 REVIEW
WWW, April 2008 - The second part of the "Hold Your Corner" triplet by the French Steppin' Youth Sound System starts off with Stevie Wonder's tribute to Bob Marley. In the 51 minutes that follow, we hear a fine selection of contemporary Jamaican and UK DUB, Roots and Dancehall.
Reggae Music is not really a style. It's a rhythm, that's why tunes are usually called "riddims". Riddims can be played in a wide variety of styles, which is perfectly clear after listening to Hold Your Corner Part Two.
Starting off with Stevie Wonder's "Master Blaster", going further into a fusion of Hip Hop and Dancehall, continuing with more pure forms of Jamaican Dancehall and Roots, moving forward into UK DUB and Roots: this is a skillful presentation of the versatility of the Reggae Rhythm.
