DUBROOM PODCAST REVIEW

WWW, December 2007 - Get ready for a deep, deep journey into the mystical realms of Adrian Sherwood's On-U Sound from the early 1980's into the present time.

When Adrian Sherwood started releasing his experiments and DUB excursions beyond the realms of Reggae, he took a special place in the history books of Reggae Music. Until this present day he maintains his position as head of one of the most remarkable stables UK DUB.

IN SHOWCASE STYLE: DOZE
DUBROOM PODCAST REVIEW

WWW, September 2007 - Five crucial tracks from 1978-1982, selected by the Jamaica HiFi crew, Showcase Style!

When the maxi-single or 12" became popular, Jamaican Record plants began releasing extended mixes, usually a combination of a vocal track with a dub or DJ counterpart. Later, maxi-singles were released on so-called "Showcase" albums.

INGLAN IS A BITCH: TWO TONE
DUBROOM PODCAST REVIEW

WWW, October 2007 - TWO TONES: More than just a label. The Two Tones were Black and White. Two Tone Ska incorporated Reggae, Jamaican Ska and even Punk with the sole intention to chant down racism.

Most people will associate skinheads with white racists having more hair than brains. The bomber jacks, army boots: they're a too familiar sight in Europe and elsewhere.

INGLAN IS A BITCH: ON-U SOUND
DUBROOM PODCAST REVIEW

WWW, October 2007 - Adrian Sherwood's On-U Sound takes a special place within the catalogue of UK DUB and Reggae productions, ever since he started releasing. 

When you hear words like "experimental" or "progressive", more often than not you are listening to word that covers up an inability to work with the real deal rather than an accurate description of someone's productions

"INGLAN IS A BITCH: ROOTS BANDS"
DUBROOM PODCAST REVIEW

WWW, September 2007 - This episode of the Jamaica HiFi' series "Inglan Is A Bitch", in which we explore the story of UK Reggae, contains 30 Minutes of music by some of the most crucial UK Roots Bands from 1976-1979.

Reggae Music was very much a Studio Music, and fact it still is. In Jamaica, most Reggae Bands were simply Studio Bands and artists like vocalists and Dub engineer would work on the material played by these bands. The bands themselves therefore had a repertoire of more often than not 1000's of tracks.

"INGLAN IS A BITCH: FAST CHAT" 
DUBROOM PODCAST REVIEW

WWW, September 2007 - Smiley Culture's "Cockney Translation" is just one out of five great examples of the UK's answer to Jamaican Rub a Dub in the 1980's.

When U-Roy started to chant over the instrumental versions played by King Tubby's Hi-Fi Sound System, many different styles were born.

VARIOUS ARTISTS - SHUFFLE
DUBROOM PODCAST REVIEW

WWW, October 2007 - In this deep DUBWISE experience, we will visit France, Austria, the UK, South Africa and Dominica for some crucial "Fruits Music" from the last 17 years. 

Arguable, the UK and the European continent have been more receptive for DUB techniques and music than America, perhaps even Jamaica. Some of the strongest drum and basslines are created right there, in the midst of Babylon, even influencing people to create music that will cross the borders of Reggae, but not those of DUB.

VARIOUS ARTISTS - STONED
DUBROOM PODCAST REVIEW

WWW, October 2007 - If you can, take a spliff and feel. Feel the deep, deep DUB vibes of the Orb, Rhythm and Sound and others as they take us to outer space, beyond the border!

Reggae Music and especially DUB has an enormous influence in the development of what we now know as contemporary electronic Dance music.
