FROM THE EDITOR
WWW, June 28 2010 - DUB, Dancehall, Old Skool and Contemporary Jamaican Roots and Rub A Dub: this edition of Dubroom Weekly is filled with no less than seven MP3 files, five Net Albums and a podcast of which all the tracks can be individually downloaded as well. Everything free, and legal, that is.
Personally, I'm happy with the fact that Dubroom Online has gone from a daily to a weekly basis. Of course, it has to do with some personal circumstances, which I hope to be able to talk about soon live and direct but that's a thing for a later edition. For now, I hope that you will like the reviewed material of this week.
This week's podcast is also something special. It contains a selection of stricktly Jamaican Rockers and Rub a Dub. With the exception of one, all the riddims were recorded in the 70's and 80's and there's a couple of hits from that time included as well. Each individual track can be downloaded as well, free and legal that is. This is definitely a Podcast which will appeal to those who prefer their Old Skool over contemporary (even though I think that such a thing is being blind for the crucialities of today which is proven in the last track, but that aside).
This week's edition of Dubroom Online also features contemporary Jamaican music, both Roots and Dancehall. Chrisinti, for example, a crucial vocalist whose versatility is showcased in the album "Again", of which you can download no less than three tracks. Or the BOOK OUT Riddim, a hard hitting Dancehall tune which also comes with three free and legal MP3 files.
On top of this, there's some nice EURODUB by I-Plant, Manutension and the Spanish based Hot Drop Reggae Band, as well as a musical world tour by the American multi-instrumentalist and Dub engineer Ras Amerlock.
Hours and hours worth of material, everything available for free and legal download.
One Love, Give Thanks,
Messian Dread (Dubroom Webmaster)
