REVIEWS

We review. We review all kinds of things as long as it is related to (DUB) Reggae and/or Consciousness as more or less defined throughout the entire Dubroom network. We don't publish any negative reviews for the simple reason that we promote (DUB) Reggae and Consciousness, not the Dubroom and not one side over the other. No contest. 

To Album Reviews

ALBUM REVIEWS

url: reviews.dubroom.org/albums.htm
When the Dubroom started back in 1997, it did not take long before the first albums were reviewed. CD albums. Things and times change, so this section has expanded into reviews from buyable MP3 singles to vinyl records and everything in between. From brand new material (sometimes reviewed before it's released) to classic, timeless material, from lovers rock to heavy dubwise, good (DUB) Reggae that needs to be heard can be discovered. 

Browse through the reviews or by artist, and consider everything reviewed to be recommended as well. After all, it's the policy of this website not to publish negative reviews.

To Artist Reviews

ARTIST REVIEWS

url: artists.dubroom.org

Sometimes, an artist or producer has so much work reviewed or is otherwise subject of special interest. We're talking about a producer creating a new sound, for example. Or an artist that has been very influential in this or that development. Whatever the case, the artists in this section deserve your special attention. In fact, we're talking about small websites with several pages of information rather than a single page review when we talk about artist reviews. You can find all the work we reviewed and often much more, like a special news page with feeds directly from the artists. Even though it's not a huge section (it started medio 2012), it's well worth to take a look.

To Books Reviews

BOOK REVIEWS

url: books.dubroom.org
In this section you can find (links to purchase) highly recommended books. All books are actually read before reviewed, and do not necessarily contain material completely endorsed by the Dubroom. They are selected for their relevance, whether they're about (DUB) Reggae or Conscious topics. Your purchase of the book(s) helps the writer(s) and/or publisher(s) where in some cases the Dubroom might receive a little bit provision as well, even though that is never the reason for publishing the review(s).

To MP3 Reviews

MP3 REVIEWS

url: mp3.dubroom.org
First-time visitors will "instantly" be able to enlarge their music collection with 100's of free and legal tracks, even full-length albums. Use mp3.dubroom.org to get your hands on some of the best from the online artist and producer community as well as established names giving away free tracks, or otherwise interesting material. Everything is hand-picked, listened to and -more often than not- reviewed. You can browse by track, album, podcast or by artist, netlabel or podcaster. Links are obviously provided.

To Software Reviews

SOFTWARE AND SOUNDWARE REVIEWS

url: reviews.dubroom.org/software.htm
Actually, this section is part of Studio Dubroom. That means, it's primary focus is on the producer of (DUB) Reggae Music. No, not just the beginner. Veterans will definitely want to check out some stuff as well (and they do). You'll find in-depth reviews of buyable software and loops/samples necessary for the construction of (DUB) Reggae music in a digital environment. Everything is recommended and hand-picked, while a lot of the reviewed material can be heard back in original Dubroom music. Often, there are demo packs available as well as musical tracks created especially to serve as illustration with the Dubroom review.

To Video Reviews

VIDEO REVIEWS

url:  video.dubroom.org
At the moment this is written (June/July 2014), the Dubroom Video reviews are kind of dated. We've been through all the reviews and removed reviews of material that was taken off-line, but new material is not added frequently.

To Website Reviews

WEBSITE REVIEWS

url:  links.dubroom.org
After a thorough clean-up of the Dubroom website in 2014, the Links Section has been promoted to a section called "Website Reviews". Hundreds and hundreds of dead links and uninteresting categories have been removed, and now from time to time a new website is added. Every website is visited, reviewed, and hand picked. None of the links are the result of a friendship or mutual promotional campaign, all of the links are heartically recommended for one reason or another, usually quite obvious.

XTRA SERVICE: DUBROOM (DUB) REGGAE REVIEWS BLOG

url: dubroomreviews.blogspot.com
Next to all our review websites, the Dubroom also has a special blog at blogspot with only the musical reviews. Not our releases, not our other stuff, just the music reviews. You can browse them even by musical genre! When you're just interested in the musical aspect of this website, this is the place for you. Of course you can add your own comments as well, and you do not even have to register for that. Or subscribe to the blog's feed and get the latest reviews directly to your in-box.

RELEASES (AND PUBLICATIONS)

We release and publicize. We release music and video's and we publish books and articles on top of our reviews. We do not release and publish for profit, we do so because we promote (DUB) Reggae and/or Consciousness as more or less defined throughout the entire Dubroom network. 

To Dubroom Main Page

ARTICLES

url:  articles.dubroom.org
Presented in several categories, this section is what it says. All the articles that the Dubroom (re)publishes are put here. Interviews, reports, research material, actually everything that's not a review. You can find the articles from the various subsites at the Dubroom. So while you can visit articles.dubroom.org and browse by categorie, you can always find relevant articles when you're at other parts of the Dubroom, like Studio Dubroom or one of our research projects. In short: when you're really and only interested in the articles present on this site, visit articles.dubroom.org and in all other cases you will find the right articles when you need to.

DUBROOM CREATIVE COMMONS RELEASES AT YOU TUBE

url: youtube.com/dubroomdread
The "Ifficial Itube Channel Of The Dubroom Dread" contains all the Dubroom Creative Commons releasesfrom 1997 to 2011. We're talking about music by Messian Dread, Heartical, Sure Dread and the Iriginal Jah Roots Band. All these video's can be used to remix You Tube style, that is, you can make your own videos with the music or simply put the music on your own account. The channel also has a little bit of material that is interesting for visitors and users of Studio Dubroom (see below)

To Ifficial Dubroom You Tube Channel

DUBROOM VIDEO RELEASES AT YOU TUBE

url: youtube.com/messiandread
In 2009 we released a video clip only to continue in 2014. For our video releases, we use a special DUBROOM.org You Tube Channel. The video's are created using material that is available on the web, like Creative Commons material or free stock video's from several websites. Unlike the music on the other You Tube channel, these releases are not Creative Commons but rather to be seen as illustrated versions of our studio releases. All video's can be embedded on your site, blog, forum or phasebook though and we very much encourage you to do so. This is not about the money, this is about the promotion of (DUB) Reggae and Consciousness.

To the Midi Files

MIDI FILES

url: midi.dubroom.org
In a way, this is where it all started back in 1997. That's about the time Messian Dread started releasing his music online through the -then popular- MIDI Format. The format has since gone back to the studio, especially with the introduction of the MP3 Format and faster Internet. Still, the MIDI Archives serve a purpose, as it is visited daily by people looking for, well, looking for MIDI. Whether you're a producer looking for chords or other inspirational things, a historian looking for ancient online music, or simply like a little bit of nostalgia, check out the Midi Archives. Especially since all releases have been put into the Creative Commons domain at August 16, 2014.

NET LABEL

url: music.dubroom.org/mp3.htm
Our Net Label is the main outlet for the original Dubroom Studio productions, but it doesn't stop there. We have over 500 different tracks available, ranging from High Quality instrumental Reggae to Electronic Dub-driven sounds, from Roots Reggae to Rub A Dub. You'll find names like Alpha and Omega, Prince Fatty, Dubcreator and of course Dubroom Household names like the Original Jah Roots Band, Heartical and Sure Dread. Included is an enormous catalogue of Creative Commons released material that you can share or use as back ground music for your non-commercial video projects.

To Radio Dubroom

RADIO DUBROOM/RADIO DUBROOM EXTRA

url: radio.dubroom.org
Radio Dubroom is a series of podcasts, started in May 2010. The music contains not just the best of the Online (DUB) Reggae Artists community, but also material which is reviewed in the Dubroom, rare or out-of-print music, and much more. Every episode is a non-stop mix, available for free download right from the Dubroom server. Radio Dubroom Extra is the Revival of the Original Radio Dubroom! Although the shows are streaming only, the freedom for the selector is "unlimited" and therefore much more of a Radio Show than the podcasts. It is also possible to request tracks or even themes for Radio Dubroom Extra. For more info: see our FAQ.

To Sure Dread Page

SURE DREAD

url: suredread.dubroom.org
When he joined the Iriginal JAH Roots at age 14, Sure Dread was already a talented and skilled keyboard player. Often compared to the likes of Jackie Mittoo and Augustus Pablo, and not without reason. He masters the black and white keys while creating true compositions and complex harmonic structures, sometimes from scratch in a few seconds time. The Dubroom has released a number of musical compositions by Sure Dread during the first ten years of it's online existence, which we are proud to present to you on these pages.

RESEARCH

We research. We research all kinds of things as long as it is related to (DUB) Reggae and/or Consciousness as more or less defined throughout the entire Dubroom network. We analyze and take position, sometimes a strong position. 

To Babylon Observer

BABYLON OBSERVER

url: babylonobserver.dubroom.org
You could say, that he places footnotes with so many Reggae lyrics that deal with this topic. The Babylon Observer documents the activities of major drivers behind "Globalization", "New Age" or "New World Order" as they push forward to their goal and ultimate fall. He publishes articles through this website and adds (links to) research material in every thinkable digital format in his research and download archive. He also has a special Message Board where others can (and do) place their observations concerning this.

To CRC Main Page

CENTER FOR RESEARCH ON CHRISTIANITY

url: crc.dubroom.org
The Center for Research on Christianity (or CRC in short) was initially founded to accompany the Dubroom's extensive research into the phenomenon of "Gospel Reggae" or "Christafarianism". This research expanded into the Christian Industrial Complex and other attempts by the devil to corrupt true livity in Yesus Kristos with what can loosely be called "Christianity". Well worth a visit, but not when you're looking to bash the Divine Saviour Yesus Kristos and His true Message of Salvation. When you want to know a little bit about the corruption and blatant satanic acts in the name of "Jesus Christ", you're more than welcome to check out what we've discovered thoughout the years.

To Rastafari Main Page

RASTAFARI

url: rastafari.dubroom.org
The Movement of Rastafari has a profound influence on the development of Reggae Music. A lot of Reggae Artists are a member or at least have a lot of sympathy for the Movement and the Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie, who was called Ras Tafari before his coronation. This section is a tribute to this Movement, a Movement that endures Tribulation from Babylon System from the very first day of it's existence. This is not a "Rastafarian Website" persay, even though Rasta's contribute. What you can find is information and documentation about the Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie as well as about/from the Movement of Rastafari.

RESOURCES

We (legally) share and create resources. We do this to help the online (DUB) Reggae community and other users/visitors of the Dubroom in their own research and development or general musical pleasure.

To Creative Commons Archive

CREATIVE COMMONS MP3 FILES

url: dubroom.yuku.com/forums/90
A lot of material reviewed at mp3.dubroom.org is released un Creative Commons Copyright, which basically means you can re-distribute the music for non-commercial purposes under certain conditions, like crediting the source and not changing the tracks. A lot of that material is of such a good quality, that the Dubroom doesn't just review the material but also provides the music straight from the Dubroom's website. There is a special forum at our message boards where you can find all the music we thankfully redistribute for the purpose of promoting (DUB) Reggae.

STUDIO DUBROOM

url: studio.dubroom.org
A well-visited section of the Dubroom, Studio Dubroom provides information, downloads and much more for both the novice as well as the veteran in the the production of (DUB) Reggae Music. From a detailed description how to build a hand drum to the continual "Making Dub With Computers tutorial by the Dubroom Webmaster, from huge free and legal sample packs to interesting links and tips. There is also a growing archive with information about the Dubroom productions, sources and other things. Even when you're not actively involved in the production of the music we all love so much, you might want to take a look and find out some of the stuff people work on to get that crucial sound in your ears.

To Digital Dignity

STUDIO DUBROOM: DIGITAL DIGNITY

url: studio.dubroom.org/digitaldignity.htm
Find 560 Mb of free, legal and licensed material for you to use in your musical productions. Studio Dubroom's Digital Dignity section made it as easy as possible to get just that. Something more, nothing less. Don't just see at as a free resource, though. In fact, just call it the Unofficial (DUB) Reggae Portal To The Loop Masters Sample Boutique! First, we've gathered all thirty (DUB) Reggae products that come with a free fully licensed demo file from the Sample Boutique and -second- created a page for each release. 

This is not a collaboration project between Loop Masters and the Dubroom. It's the decision of the Dubroom to make this series out of genuine satisfaction with the services and products offered by the Sample Boutique.

REST

For the rest, we do something. We communicate. We update. We maintain. We do everything a large website should do when it comes to providing information about the website -and it's main editor-, even to the point that we joined the Google+ network. And the most important: we tell you about redemption.

To FAQ

ASK THE DUBROOM

url: ask.dubroom.org
Before you can send an email to the Dubroom, you are asked to check the Frequently Asked Questions or FAQ section. This section contains answers to questions most commonly posted or mailed. The FAQ section is presented per topic, so it should be pretty easy to find the answer to your question. When it's frequently asked, that is. Find out more about the webmaster, or about how to be reviewed on the Dubroom or even included in our Net Label, and much more. For example, about our research projects.

The Dubroom has several Message Boards, placed under three main categories: The Dubroom, (DUB) Reggae Music and Consciousness. Each forum contains a wealth of resource material, and not just stuff you can find on the Dubroom website. With well over over a million views per year since it's founding back in February 2009, you can say that some people are served with something and you could very well be included. On top of that, postings from specific message boards are automatically re-posted on others places at the Dubroom website and blogs. So when you have something to say to other Dubroom users and visitors, this is the place to do it. You have to be a member of YUKU.com in order to be able to post but that's free.

YESUS KRISTOS LIVITY

Last, but definitely not least: Read our words of wisdom for the seeker of redemption. When you seek redemption, that is. On what could be considered the most important page of all thousands of pages on this website, you can find an explanation of and introduction to the (eternal) life offered to each and every one by the Creator Himself. 

Do not go to this section looking for arguments, political correctness, or any other reason but a simple hunger and thirst for the pure untainted grace and redemption that Yesus Kristos has to offer.
