DUBROOM MP3 REVIEW
WWW, December 2007 - When the music starts playing after 30 seconds, DJ Ian Irie has already taken us straight into a DEEP ROOTS VIBE.
Ambassada Hi-Power is a UK based Sound System that traces it's roots back to the 1970's. Obviously, this says a thing or two and one of these "things" is SHAKA.
JAH SHAKA, to be precise.
"More Rootical Culture, Selector!" opens up with a big up to the man whose name is synonymous with militant and conscious Roots Music presented with deep bass and upfull lyrics. JAH Shaka's Sound System has inspired and keeps inspiring people to Chant Down Babylon too.
In the UK, Conscious and militant Sound Systems even form a genre in themselves. You could speak about a Rootical Culture, definitely. And so it is no surprise when one Conscious Sound System bigs up another instead of mashing him down as we see so often in other Dancehalls.
The Rootical Culture can also be recognized by experiencing -rather than listening- to the Podcast. Reggae Music productions from all times and places come together and DJ Ian Irie's Mixing Board makes sure that everything blends together into a harmonic Inity.
Indeed: More Rootical Culture, Selector!
