PODCAST reviews

Podcasts are a great way to get yourself familiar with all kinds of artists and styles you might like to consider for your next purchase. It is also a very good way of experiencing Reggae in an alternative way as many podcasts are de facto non-stop mixes, often put together by skillful DJ's and other Sound System personnel. The Dubroom has reviewed many of the best podcast(ers) throughout the years, all of which you can discover in our reviewed podcast pages. Be sure to also check out the Dubroom's own podcast.

"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.

Bob Marley changed this concept significantly, when he combined American/UK based concepts of bands with repertoires and albums with additional touring schedules with his Jamaican Reggae roots. The rest is history and doesn't have to be repeated here.

Bob Marley's success gave birth to a lot of Reggae bands, especially in the UK. In the late 1970's, this movement was already established, as the five excellent examples in this podcast show.
