GHETTO ORGAN STYLE
DUBROOM PODCAST REVIEW

WWW, December 2007 - When Toots and the Maytalls performed their track "Reggae Got Soul", they could very well have the Ghetto Organ riddim in mind

One-Riddim CD's are usually interesting for DJ's who like to play a different version all the time. On their Podcasts, for example. For there is a big difference between a CD and a Podcast.

DRUM SONG STYLE
DUBROOM PODCAST REVIEW

WWW, December 2007 - Musically, the Drum Song Riddim incorporates the Nyabinghy rhythm as well as the standard Reggae rhythm. So in a way, "Drum Song Style" really refers to a specific style! 

When you dance on an ultra-new Dancehall release, chances are you're really dancing on a decades-old riddim first played in Studio One. The Drum Song riddim has it's cradle in that studio too, when Jackie Mittoo released the tune back in 1967 (Source: JAMRID.com).

ALI BABA STYLEEEEEE
DUBROOM PODCAST REVIEW

WWW, November 2007 - The Ali Baba Riddim has inspired many vocalists and DUB engineers to record some of their better works. 28 minutes of this great riddim definitely isn't too much, here!

They're all there: from the obvious John Holt tune that gave the title to this riddim to the legendary King Tubby dubbing it up BIGTIME, from the necessary Dr Alimantado trimming the barber to the unexpected David JAHSon in showcase style.

VARIOUS ARTISTS - BACHELOR STYLE
DUBROOM PODCAST REVIEW

WWW, October 2007 - 30 minutes of heavy skanking on some rare and underrated Reggae Music cannot be denied by the serious lover of Reggae Music.

VARIOUS ARTISTS - JUGGLING STYLEE!
DUBROOM PODCAST REVIEW

WWW, October 2007 - In the early 1990's, the drum computer and other digital technologies had definitely taken over the Jamaican Studio's and Dancehalls.

It all started in the mid 1980's with the Sleng-Teng riddim, a production by Prince Jammy's. It was the first digital production and the people loved it. The Digital Revolution was a fact!

RUPIE EDWARDS - RUPIE'S STYLEE!
DUBROOM PODCAST REVIEW

WWW, September 2007 - Rupie Edwards is very much a singer as well as a producer. Forty minutes of crucial historical Reggae!

When Reggae was a few ears old, it was time for another decade. The 70's were calling, and so were a lot of new producers and singers. Rupie Edwards was one of them, and until 1974 he scored a number of hits both as a vocalist and producer.

HENRY 'JUNJO' LAWES: RUB A DUB STYLE!
DUBROOM PODCAST REVIEW

WWW, September 2007 - Six out of the ten tracks in this great 30 minutes non-stop mix contain the vocal works of Yellowman. Still, the podcast isn't credited to this legendary Reggae Toaster who made his name during the 1980's Rub a Dub era.

what's up with that?

Reggae historians will tell you, that Henry 'Junjo' Lawes was the predominant producer of Jamaican Rub a Dub Reggae in the early 1980's. His name is on just too many albums and single releases to mention, and some even credit him with the founding of this early form of Dancehall back in 1979.
