"THREE DIFFERENT SIDES OF REGGAE" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, October 12 2009 - Today's edition of Dubroom Online has three interesting features, especially when you scroll down and actually see them three-gether.
We're talking about a 1980's Punk Band that came straight out of the Punky Reggae Party in the 1970's, a contemporary controversial Dancehall artist with -let's say- a reputation, and a Rasta singer whose upfull and positive lyrics increases Consciousness in the hearts and souls of those that listen to his music.
A greater contrast could hardly be portrayed.
Yet, all these three artists represent a part of what altogether is known as Reggae Music: from the raw Dub of the Ruts to the pumping Dancehall of Vybz Kartel to the upfull Roots, Rub a Dub and Lovers Rock of Freddie Mc Gregor.
One Love, Give Thanks,
