"ONLINE DUB ARTISTS (9)" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, April 10 2009 - So, where is the Online DUB Artist Community, if there is not one site that can claim to be "The" site for "The" Community?
In a way, this is where the listeners of Online DUB get into the picture. The internet has tightened the relationship between artist and listener, as the middle man has basically been fired with the introduction of the MP3 format.
Sites where artists can upload their music, will quickly become sites where artists talk among themselves, upload experimental works for peer review, even play politikal games in some delusional idea they "rule" "the" Online DUB Artist Community. Not really interesting for the average lover of Online DUB.
After all, who wants to spend hours and hours listening to stuff before that one gem is discovered?
One Love, Give Thanks,
