DUBROOM ALBUM REVIEW
This is a really great sampler of Jamaican Reggae Music as it was played in the late 1970's, early 1980's.
Almost a decade worth of music on one album, and every track has his own story, relevance and niceness. Good for friends, connaiseurs, music lovers and dj's. Mmm... Someone did a very good in compiling this album!
Many different styles are presented to the listener, all of them based around the production skills of Mike Brooks.
Long parts of stricktly drum and bass with vocals on top. Early dancehall or Rub a Dub style Solid drum and basslines!
Deep Roots freaks you to every corner of your mind because of the deep phasers, accompanied by lyrics sung from the heart.
Straight up Rockers in the classic Revolutionairies Style: militant and forward. Guaranteed to make everybody move and Groove To The Riddim.
And if that doesn't convince you, simply take a look at the All-Star list of vocalists and know they are all backed by the classic groups that CREATED the music we now know to be a part in our souls.
When you take a look at the list of friends with whom Mike Brookes made the vibes during the period of 1976-1983, it becomes clear that the word "just" not only a mere understatement, it's totally misplaced!
Barry Brown. Don Carlos. Jah Lloyd a.k.a. Jah Lion. Errol Dunkley. Man oh man, this really rocks hard!
