"ONLINE DUB ARTISTS (22)" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, April 23 2009 - Even though the Online DUB Artist Community is suffering, I am positive about the future.
I believe in the power of Reggae Music. I believe, that you need to have a certain drive to be able to make the music, and when you do not have that drive, sooner or later you will either leave the realms of Reggae or even leave the realms of music altogether.
I have seen the demise of certain websites, after they were hijacked by social groups who do not have the interest of DUB and Reggae in mind.
I believe, that the Music will be the Winner when the confusion in the current situation has reached it's climax.
The Music has a self-cleaning mechanism that too many don't even realize.
One Love, Give Thanks,
Messian Dread (Dubroom Webmaster)

TRACK 11: CULTURE GENERAL - DUB PROPHET
The DUB Prophet comes with a steppers rhythm and several effects to spice up the oh so catchy tune. This is the kind of DUB that will make a whole crowd dance, even when they wouldn't know what they were dancing too. Why? Cause Prophesy must Fulfill!
