"ONLINE DUB ARTISTS (25)" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, April 26 2009 - In the last 25 columns, I have been sharing and meditating on a community that I saw getting born and growing up in well over a decade.
There is even a second generation of Online DUB Artists, as the digital technology grew thanks to companies like Propellerhead and their superb REASON program.
My heart is with this community. I feel very much a part of it, and I do my best to promote the serious works and I will continue to do that as long as Jah lets me do it.
Not everything I wrote these last weeks was nice, sometimes it was outright in-your-face, but who the cap fit let them wear it.
In conclusion, I would like to call upon each and everyone who happens to love DUB and Reggae Music. I would like to call to take the music serious and to start working for the promotion of the music as a whole instead of your own little social club that some -including me- would rather call a "cult".
One Love, Give Thanks,

TRACK 14: CHE-BACK - MUSIC FOR SALE
Indeed: the tune sounds like a cash machine on some very high grade of sinsemillia. Music is for sale, but sales remain to be an ugly business. Something like that...
