Dubroom Online - Edition January 7, 2008


WWW, January 7 2008 - The movement of Rastafari speaks about Babylon stealing the children of Africa in order to work as slaves in what was then called "The New World".
A metaphor?

Far from that!

Just like ancient Babylon can be identified as the root of all "world religions", we see the same thing going on in the political arena.

It's all about control and world domination, colonialism and slavery being "just" two ways in which Mystery Babylon is working to achieve her goal.

WWW, December 2007 - One of the nice things in the House of Reggae is the fact that every style and time of the music that we love so much is covered. The 17th episode is no exception to that golden rule.

The show starts of with Lucian and Beres Hammond singing a duet. Later on, both singers will be represented in a solo tune as well. And that is not the only contemporary Reggae we will hear throughout the hour of what our host calls "fine Jamaican Music".

Equally, we will go back in time.

To listen to the very first release by the Chantells, just after we found out why the vocal group split and why they can never come together again.

We go further and listen to a 1968 Rocksteady tune by Dobby Dobson, who is still working and releasing music the day this is written. We also meet the brother of Desmond Dekker, the King of Ska. Known as Johnny Melody, he keeps working until this very day too.

That's all before we listen to a recording by the legendary King Stur-Gav Hi-Fi Sound System, run by none other than U Roy.

Indeed, another great episode filled with niceness, knowledge and overstanding of the music that we love so much.
