"21th CENTURY DUB" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, February 24 2009 - Contemporary, digital (Dance) music would not have been what it is, if it were not for DUB music.
Reggae DUB Music, to be exact.
For during the journey into the digital technologies that enable the contemporary producer to do just about everything (s)he wants, there are echo's everywhere from the 1970's when King Tubby and his protégées started it all.
The MP3 that is reviewed for today's edition of Dubroom Online is a perfect example of how the Roots meet the Fruits. An extremely danceable tune that will be ignored by the puritan Reggae fan on one hand, but will also attract the fan of contemporary music into the realm of DUB and subsequently Reggae Music.
One Love, Give Thanks,
