"LE DUB, MONSIEUR!" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, November 4 2009 - During my web browsing sessions, where I'm looking for music to review for the Dubroom, lately I am especially interested in the French Dub bands and Net Labels that surfaced during these last years.
There are so many bands, producers and labels that it is really fair to speak about a French DUB Movement, so interesting that it approaches a fine second place on the Global DUB Map, where the UK stood at a lonely heights until the Internet gave rise to other movements like the Online (DUB) Reggae Artists.
Take No More Babylon, a French band which backs up Jamaican singers during their tours in France. This band needs more recognition than it currently gets, globally.
After all, it's all about Le Dub, Monsieur!
One Love, Give Thanks,
