"ONLINE DUB ARTISTS (20)" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, April 21 2009 - With the demise of websites that let anyone upload their works without looking to the interest of the listeners and the serious artists, we see the necessity for an OMD who takes serious artists serious and Reggae listeners serious as well.
Of course, we have the Net Labels now, but in the end, artists must get paid and only an OMD like the old MP3.com can do that. To make artists pay donations and not giving them anything back, will obviously create a kind of music that is not what the music should be.
So what we need is someone to stand up and create a workable concept. Create a website, where thousands of independent artists upload their material and where they get paid as well.
One Love, Give Thanks,
