"UK DUB AND (NUCLEUS) ROOTS" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, October 29 2009 - Jah Willing, Dubroom Online will keep featuring an MP3 review of the UK based Roots and Dub collective Nucleus Roots until November 6. Then, a total of 12 tracks will have been reviewed and featured in Dubroom Online.
It's a remarkable collective, Nucleus Roots. They deserve much more attention than they currently get.
One time, they sound a bit like Aswad or Steel Pulse, the another time it's deep UK Roots in the style of the Reggae Regulars and Pablo Gad, where at other times works of the Dub engineers like the Mad Professors are approached at an interesting proximity.
Check them out, visit their website, buy their albums!
One Love, Give Thanks,
