DUBROOM STAR SELECTIONS
STAR SELECTIONS is the direct result of a
merger between the Dubroom and JAH Marks
Webstore. We want to give conscious (DUB)
Reggae artists a place to sell their music
over the Internet.
Web Store is different than our Net Label,
in the sense that there is room for other
labels to sell their music, too. We do
present music from our own Net Label and
Studio, but we're interested in becoming an
outlet for like-minded labels.
As you may or may not know, the Dubroom
has donated webspace for a group called
"STAR Network". Out of that
network came a label and a webstore with
products by members of the network.
JAH Mark ran the webstore, and at a certain
moment he and I decided that we had to
combine his webstore and the Dubroom.
The webstore currently contains the full
catalogue of the Star store. This means,
that all the music in there is produced and
released by members of Star Network. But
obviously we are looking to expand that
catalogue with music that could also be
reviewed on the Dubroom.
We hope, that Dubroom Star Selections
will grow out to become a quality outlet for
the better conscious (DUB) Reggae.
We have received questions by people, as to
whether we would only release music of a
certain religious kind. We can be short: no.

In short (from the Dubroom
I want to be featured on The Dubroom,
but I am not religious. Do all the tracks
or featured labels have to be religious?
No, ofcourse not, as long as your music is
not of pornographic or anti-Jah content,
and as long as it is dub or (other)
reggae. We're all responsible for
ourselves. On the other hand: when you
deal with Reggae Music and you are not
religious, you have at least found a way
to deal with the many religious Reggae
What are the requirements to get my
music on the Dubroom?
As you can guess, there are many! People
come to the Dubroom to find good music.
The policy of the website is not to review
crap, so when it's on the Dubroom, it's
good. And unfortunnately this means that
most music submitted to the Dubroom will
not be put on the site. To spare yourself
a dissapointment, it might be fruitfull to
read the list of requirements below.
Here is a list:
- The music must be (morally) legal. No
illegal mp3 links.
- The music must be (Dub) Reggae or
- Related music is most likely not to be
put on the Dubroom.
- Related to (Dub) Reggae is defined by
The Dubroom as: ragga, ska, dancehall.
- The music must have at least the
quality that is on avarage found here in
- The recordings must be of reasonable
quality, not practice tape style
recorded with one microphone, unless the
music is historically relevant.
- (for net-label)The music must be
available for free download, and must be
- The music should not contain any
offenses towards the Creator.
- The music should not have so-called
adult contents and should not contain
