WWW, May 2010 - After what was really a long hiatus of several years, Radio Dubroom is back online, allbeit somewhat different than before. One very nice difference is, that all episodes can be downloaded for free instead of just being streamed. Read about it in the 30th edition of Dubroom In-Site!

It really was a long time, about five years to be exact. In that time, a lot of things changed on the Internet and one of these things was that it was simply no longer affordable to keep Radio Dubroom online. After all, royalties were paid to some shady organization of which you just know that they will never distribute that money to the artists themselves. That shady organization got more and more greedy these last years with the result that it would have cost the Dubroom 100 dollar a month or more to keep streaming the music.

In the mean time, the podcast phenomenon took an enormous step forward and became just that: a phenomenon which isn't about to vanish. Throughout the years, the Dubroom reviewed hundreds of podcasts and now the time has arrived to put out our own.

So once again: Here Is... Radio Dubroom!

The choice was made to put the podcasts on with an on-site presentation at At the time this is written, there's one episode online but when you read this update as part of Dubroom Weekly, there's supposed to be another one too...

The music will consist out of the best from the Online (DUB) Reggae Artist community, material which the Dubroom has explicit permission to use, new releases sent to us for review and/or promotion, plus some rare and/or out-of-print music. Everything is mixed non-stop into one long mix, some effects and sounds are added.

The podcast will be available for free download in MP3 format. Episode one is encoded in 128kBit but the plans are to use higher quality in the episodes to come.

Hopefully, you'll like this brand new old feature of the Dubroom as much as I like to make them for you and for the promotion of Reggae Music.

One Love, Give Thanks,
Messian Dread (Dubroom Webmaster)
