Messian Dread - One
This is the first official full length CD coming from the Dubroom region. And as the title shows, it's also Messian Dread's debut album. The CD has been received pretty well and has gotten some nice reviews. In 2002, the album has been updated. A little later the music industry pulled the plug, together with the works of other 250,000 online artists It is currently only available in mp3 format.

The opening track, Voice in the wilderness, is one of Messian Dread's hardest riddims and prophecy tunes. In the Book of Books, John the Baptist is called "The Voice of one crying in the wilderness", crying to announce the coming of the Lord. Roots On My Head is an ultra long dub mix (7 min.) based upon a militant steppers riddim and a hypnotic bassline. It's a track especially written for those dreadlocks who experience the pressure that Babylon can put on. Third track on the album is a 12" track. First, you'll hear the track with full lyrics and instrumentation, then it goes over into Dub. All in one mix. Again, the steppers take control of the rhythm, carrying a strong message to false preachers and teachers to Leave Natty Dread Alone. After a storm, there must be a calm. In this calm you can hear a Messian Dread gospel-reggae track, again in the 12" style. Eye Witness has a true "band feel". In the recording, you'll hear an occasional scratch. Reggae Disco Dub you can find on the rejoicing Earth Rightful Ruler, a track which has been remixed in 2001. Chill out on the meditative dub tunes of Judgment Dub, while you listen to one of the hardest prophecies on this album. Run for the coming wrath, into the arms of The Shepherd. The third and last 12" of this album was originally created by King David, one of the forefathers of Rastafari. A Conscious Dub is a favorite dub tune on MP3.com. A Dub in the Scientist Tradition. The only track without vocals on Messian Dread 1 is Ethiopian Dub, based upon that particular Reggae Drum Rhythm, the One Drop. Stepping Out Of Babylon is a right representation of the determination of the Conscious Dread, to leave out of Babylon, on to Mt Zion.

Ten of Messian's early Internet releases, which made him quite popular. Years after the tracks were released, they are still appreciloved by many listeners. Every now and then, one of the titles from Messian Dread 1 entered and climbed in the various Dub/Reggae charts on MP3.com. Many of the tracks are rather long, but all together the album contains close to one hour of music.
