July 19 2014 - In the 33rd chapter of
Dubroom In-Site, Messian Dread writes about
his latest and upcoming musical releases as
well as a number of other issues related to
the Dubroom website. What can -JAH Willing-
be expected, what has been done already, and
how's the website doing in general?
With an EP
scheduled for release tomorrow, a virtual 7
inch and a virtual 12 inch as well as a Dub
Album scheduled for release in the coming
weeks and with another DUB Album under
construction, there's quite a bit of musical
output at the Dubroom momentarily. After a
couple of years of silence, silence no more!
REAL DUBWISE ft. MAD PROFESSOR
have been following the Dubroom lately, must
about the EP that is scheduled to be
released tomorrow. It's an EP with ARIWA
recordings which I have transformed into
Dub. It's the result of my purchase of Mad
Professor's Reel to Real Reggae Parts One
hence the name "Reel To Real
Dubwise". Three riddims, which also be
featured on a DUB Album I am currently
working on. Jah Willing, this album will be
released somewhere next month.
KITCHEN - ANYTHING INYTHING/STAY WHEN IT DUB
and other visitors of Studio
Dubroom will have read something about Ras
Kitchen. He has his own TV Show on
Jamaica where he teaches Ital and other
Cooking. Living with his family, he receives
guests and gives them an authentic Jamaican
experience during their stay. Ras Kitchen
has also released two vocal sample packs for
producers and I've used material from these
packs to make two Dubs.
In a way,
the virtual 7 inch can be seen as a
fundraiser. Not for the Dubroom, but for Ras
Kitchen. Living in Jamaica as a Ras is not
easy at all, in spite of the romantic
"Irie Irie Mon" sentiments some
might have with the idea. Surviving in a
righteous way when all around you there is
violence, crime and corruption, wickedness.
This means that everyone who has a little
bit of money left, and likes the music (when
it's released), is humbly requested by me to
some money to the Ras on his website and
tell them the Dubroom sent ya.
- LIGHT OF THIS DUB (EXTENDED)/DILLINGER -
DWELL IN LOVE AND DUB (EXTENDED)
extended Dub tracks on this virtual 12 inch.
Two riddims which will also be featured on a
12-track DUB album scheduled to be released
a week after this one. Two Steppers in the
Roots tradition, with lots of Dub Mixing and
more than enough message.
DREAD 12-TRACK DUB ALBUM
anticipation of a 14-track Dub Album
featuring ARIWA's sounds, another Dub Album
is scheduled for release. The music is
already done, but some work has to be done.
Cover Art and stuff like that. I don't
really want to say too much about the music
at this moment other than that there will be
some surprising guest appearances by some
well known names. Ah, well, you already had
a hint with the virtual twelve inch.
moment I am also looking into the
possibility of having Dubroom productions
available on physical CD. As it seems at
this moment, it is a very real possibility
and pricing can be set very reasonable.
Reasonable, as in well under ten dollars for
70 minutes of music, including a booklet and
jewel case and everything. So, yes, this is
most certainly something to consider.
Next to the
many hours I spend in the studio working on
the music, I've done some thing to the
Dubroom website as well. Yes, adding reviews
and things. Also, adding features. New is
Watch, it's like a shell around the Dubroom
Message Boards. In layman's terms: it's
a way of reading the latest postings per
topic without having to leave the Dubroom
added Download/Player widgets to several
pages at the Dubroom, most predominantly at
Home Page. It will give you the latest
uploads to Reverb Nation, which you can play
or download directly from the Dubroom's
pages. I've also added widgets to a new
feature at Radio Dubroom called "Radio
Dubroom Extra". These are
streaming-only chapters of Radio Dubroom
featuring music that can not be put on the
regular downloadable show for legal reasons.
The shows can be streamed without leaving
the Dubroom website.
improvement recently installed is the
possibility for members of the Dubroom
Message Boards to draw attention to visitors
and readers of the Dubroom blogs. This
is not a free pass for spam or something,
it's a free pass to share good vibes by
promoting (DUB) Reggae.
think that they plan their things but the
fact is that none of us can plan anything
without the Creator allowing it to happen.
We can plan to walk somewhere only to be
killed in an accident. So, that is why I
always say "JAH Willing". It's not
a mere phrase, it is a statement of fact.
Willing, later this year I will release a
Showcase album. Full length lyrical tracks
with their full-length Dub version.
Discomixes, yes. The vocals will not be
mine. At this moment I do not really want to
talk too much about it, but everything will
be revealed as time goes by. This will
include information about the source of the
material I work on for this album.
Willing, that is!
concludes another update for those
interested in the runnings of the Dubroom
website and editor, which would be me. I am
truly grateful to Jah that I have the
possibility to do this work and share most
of it for free in a legal way. I sincerely
hope it benefits you in one way or another.
