MUFLON DUB SOUND SYSTEM - IN LOVE WITH RIGHTEOUSNESS
DUBROOM MUSIC REVIEW

WWW, June 2021 - Hailing from Poland, the Muflon Dub Sound System (MDSS) has been around in the online DUB Artist community. And in the Outernet, too. Centered around the Muflon Man, MDSS had music released on Tanty Records' "Roots Of Dub Funk" series and not in the least on online platforms such as VERSIONIST.

"In Love With Righteousness" is a compilation of some of the best Dubwise music that MDSS has released throughout the 2005 right through to 2014. The album is released through Dubophonic, known for their outstanding releases and continuing support for the Online (DUB) Reggae Artist Community. And coincidentally: the muflon happens to be the national animal of Cyprus, home of the Dubophonic Records label.

RUBI DU - LOCKUP
DUBROOM MUSIC REVIEW

WWW, March 2021 - As Babylon continues to do what she always does, spreading lies and confusion while keeping people in bondage and slavery, the Most High has Roots Daughter Rubi Du from New Zealand with a message of encouragement for Jah people.

Raised by her parents who were connected to the Twelve Tribes of Israel organization, Rubi Du grew up with Reggae Music and Consciousness. She's been active in New Zealand as a vocalist, and what a voice indeed.

This track, a production of Rob Smith of Smith & Mighty fame comming in several different versions, is not just a massive UK Steppers. It's a message of Truth that will make those that love Jah step up in encouragement while the wicked get another warning.

Get the EP at BandCamp. A heartical recommendation from us here at the Dubroom.

SHANTI-K MEETS AKI MITTOO - BOTANICAL STORY/RUDIES
DUBROOM MUSIC REVIEW

WWW, February 2021 - Meet Aki Mittoo, who has her credentials as instructor and player of the black and white keyboards from melodica to piano. Meet Shanti-K, multi-instrumentalist and producer since 1993. And meet Goja Bongos, whose name tells it all. Two riddims, six tracks. Read the review, listen and get the music from BANDCAMP.com.

"Botanical Story" is a Roots Reggae steppers, solid. You'll instantly get the vibe. There are vague resemblances of that other band from the land of the Rising Sun, Dry and Heavy. "Rudies" has a Ska flavor, which matches the title very good as it recalls the days of the Rude Boys. 

Every track comes in three different versions: an instrumental track, where Aki Mittoo gets to play over the riddim from the top to the very last drop. A Dub version, where Shanti-K shows his skill as producer and engineer. Another Dub version where Goja Bongos adds that Roots vibe which can only be done by use of the Kete hand drums which, by the way, he manufactures himself.

We at Dubroom heartically recommend this release, which you can get at Bandcamp and other online music outlets.

RAS MIDAS - WORLD BLOCK PARTY WITH DUB
DUBROOM MUSIC REVIEW

WWW, January 2021 - In what is his first release after ten years, Jamaican Reggae Veteran singer RAS MIDAS comes with an upfull One Drop style, both vocal and dub. From the studio's of Harry J's in 1970's Jamaica to a digital release at Bandcamp, Ras Midas a.k.a. The Rastaman In Exile been through it and that's a thing you can definitely hear.

For this release, he hooked up with producer Mike Lorello, who has worked with US based Reggae Band Morgan Heritage but also with ones like Cher and Whitney Houston. The music was provided by Larry Lange, another well known name in the general music business given the fact he's had his notations at the Billboard charts. Two veterans in their own way.

DUB DYNASTY - THUNDERING MANTIS
DUBROOM ALBUM REVIEW

WWW, September 2014 - Digital download, vinyl, CD, or a combination: the formats vary, the source does not. That source being the UK DUB Twins Alpha and Omega with a brand new release on their Steppas Records label. Nine vocal tracks featuring a world wide group of singers alongside their DUB counterpart carrying the unmistakable Alpha and Omega sound.

Dub Dynasty is Alpha and Omega and Alpha Steppa: yes, the next generation. Son and nephew, to be exact.

LUCIANO AND MAD PROFESSOR - DELIVERANCE DUB SHOWCASE
DUBROOM ALBUM REVIEW

WWW, September 2014 - What's the difference between a Showcase and a Dub Showcase, Ariwa Style? Well, the fact that not every vocal track is followed by it's Dub (which you can easily change in your player) plus the fact that there's an extra Dub version Of "Three Meals A Day" labeled Sound System Dub. Luciano and Mad Professor In Fine Style!

Of course, when Luciano sings into the multi track recorder at Ariwa studio with Mad Professor at the controls he listens to excellent music. Of course, when Ariwa prepares for Luciano they will come with a variety of musical works that will all emphasize a different side of The MessenJah. Of course a collaboration between Luciano and Ariwa brings niceness.

VARIOUS ARTISTS - A RUFF GUIDE TO ARIWA SOUNDS (Stream in full!)
DUBROOM ALBUM REVIEW

WWW, September 2014 - Vocal tracks, Discomixes and of course DUB Shots. "A Ruff Guide To Ariwa" has it all and look at the title: it's not a "Ruff Guide To Mad Professor"! The well-chosen title for this compilation of sounds from the London based Studio has a few classics from "back then", but it also features some of the -outstanding- work of Joe Ariwa. Not to mention the all-star list of further appearances, that is.

It should not be a surprise: over here at the Dubroom we're not ashamed to big up Ariwa wherever possible. That's not just because of the original and even leading sounds and riddims, not just because of the consistency in quality with the enormous quantity. It's equally because of the importance of Ariwa for (DUB) Reggae in general.

MESSIAN DREAD PRESENTS A HEAVYWEIGHT DUBWISE SELECTION WITHOUT OBJECTION (CD EDITION)
DUBROOM ALBUM REVIEW

WWW, August 27 2014 - About a week after the release of the Net Album, here came the CD edition of Messian Dread Presents A Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection. No less than 16 tracks, a special license for all DJ's and full high quality cover art: it most certainly transcends it's online version. On top of that, obtaining this physical product will show that you are not just serious in your support for (DUB) Reggae Music, but about your own record collection as well. After all, this is a selection of very special tracks featuring legendary names like U Roy, Prince Jazzbo and Dillinger.

Of course, when you're just interested in the music and satisfied with burning your own CD you can simply jump to the Net Album download page and get the CD Quality wave files from there. No problem. This is not a release to make money, this is not even a promotional tool for Messian Dread and/or Dubroom Productions, while most of the vocalists featured on the album absolutely need no promotion either. This is simply an opportunity to get your hands on a physical presentation of the 2014 developments in the Dubroom studio and the reasons to want that can vary.

Moa Anbessa presents: Prince David - Watch Them/Jules I - Jah Jah Calling
DUBROOM ALBUM REVIEW

WWW, August 2014 - After five years of silence in the vinyl area, the Italian Dub collective MOA ANBESSA has scheduled a 12" release for September 15 in this 2014. The Dubroom had a chance to listen and wholeheartedly recommends all vinyl addicts to go and order the 180 grams of Roots Reggae Ireness from the Venice crew before it's sold out.

It's almost impossible to follow the Dubroom and not know about Moa Anbessa. This collective of conscious Singers and Players of instruments (including the mixing board) stood at the root of the -now online legendary- Italian Dub Community Showcase series, while their productions are well sought after by selectors of major Sound Systems like Aba Shanti-I and Jah Shaka. This is Roots Reggae (Dub) in it's finest form, namely that of the conscious kind. It comes with the kind of communication that actually fits the massive sounds of the drum and bass lines.
