DUBROOM MP3 REVIEW
WWW, May 2008 - Five crucial Jamaican Dub tunes from the 1970's, including Bob Marley's "One Drop": here's a fresh choice of old skool Dub that will make you move and groove to the rhythm of the drum and bassline once more!
The Sinko Podcast series does not usually specialize in Reggae or even DUB. The selector writes, that he's been "listening to an awful lot last year", which did inspire him for this nice selection of 1970's Jamaican Reggae.
It's interesting to hear with what someone who doesn't know "all" the in's and out's of Dub and Reggae will come up with, of course. Sinko's selection shows the choice of someone who has definitely felt the vibe!
Interesting is the Dub from Bob Marley's "One Drop". Marley never released a Dub album. After the King of Reggae died, some Dubs were released. There are also a number of Dubs originally mixed by Dennis Thompson, circulating in circles of Dub and Reggae collectors. These dubs found their way out of the studio without ever having been released on the market.
The Bob Marley Dub is right in the middle of the 5-track Podcast. We hear The Soul Syndicate and the Revolutionaries playing riddims, King Tubby and Prince Jammy mixing everything skillfully into DUB.
Enjoy a fresh choice of old skool!
