DUBROOM VIDEO REVIEW
WWW, November 2008 - In 2002, Reggae and DUB had come a long way, resulting in many sub-genres emerging throughout the decades. Thievery Corporation is one of the collectives that came out of this development.
As we see pictures of the many wicked things Babylon does to the people of the world, a smooth and groovy music plays and the singer tells us all about the Mystery.
When the four minutes are over, you know one thing: you don't wanna be The Richest Man In Babylon.
Musically, the clip is just as interesting as the topic. We hear a melodic form of toasting, we hear a drum and bass beat that is not Reggae but still does give a Reggae vibe, or to be more precise: a DUB vibe.
Electronic Music, straight to Babylon Head!
