ABOUT MESSIAN DREAD

WWW, August 2014 - Basically, I'm just someone who happenned to be in the right place at the right time with the proper motivation and an enormous sense of determination. That time was the 1990's, the place was the Internet, and the proper motivation was the need to share the love for Reggae and all these things that are attached to the music. The determination has brought me from these early years in 1994 when I first surfed the world wide web, in 1997 when this website started, all the way through the golden years of MP3.com to the time you are reading this on this website.

I was blessed by Jah with some things like talents and opportunity to promote (DUB) Reggae in any way that I can. This means producing music, reviewing it, showing that you do not need to turn to illegal downloads in order to get yourself an interesting collection, sharing as much as I can about the process called making music, performing live, well, these kind of things. 

I was not blessed by Jah to work this for myself or even for money. I believe with all of my heart mind and soul that with the promotion of Reggae comes the promotion of consciousness, which in my case is of course my firm belief in JAH through Yesus Kristos for which I am not ashamed. I am ashamed for many calling themselves Christian, even though I don't have to. I do have to expose them, and I do that too. When you listen to Reggae Music and you know that Yesus Kristos said that we had to watch the signs of the times, it does not take a rocket scientist to know that these things are in fact the same thing. 

So that is what I do.

One Love,
Messian Dread

REVIEWS

Highlife Magazine (Translated from Dutch) 

 

"Without a doubt, the most downloaded dub music in the MP3 era until now is the Roots Dub from this dub artist. In the style of Scientist and Prince Jammy and with modern technology (read: computer), this "Jesus Dread" creates a sound which tends toward the dubs of the 1980's. Heavy basses, drums which seem to be played manually, and echo's which my surround-system can barely keep up with create a buzz in which the few lyrics linger on in your head." PDF  
REGGAEVIBES.com

 

"Keeping True to Reggae principles, Messian Dread plays Roots Reggae with an emphasis on Dub" MP3.com You can hear that the tracks are contemporary recordings, but the feel is strictly vintage. The spirit and the soul of the classic dub recordings is present everywhere, but he has created his own atmosphere, which gives the tracks an enhanced relaxed feeling." PDF  
DUTCH NATIONAL POP INSTITUTE (translated from Dutch)

 

Messian Dread is a so-called "Jesus Dread", arrayed with striking dreadlocks and very religious. He is the founder of the formation JAH ROOTS. Inspired by Dubmasters like Scientist, Prince Jammy and King Tubby, Messian Dread makes deep dub on his demo-album MESSENJAH DUB Rhtyhm and bass are the most important ingredients of this druggy music. Basslines are being kept very basic. All instruments go through the mixing-table and are processed with lot's of echo and filters. Very enjoyable, also without your head in clouds of herb.   
Ryan A. McMichael, Webmaster of the Official Half Pint Website

 

Pulsing bass, conscious vocals with heavy echo, and wicked keys are layered over slow grooving riddims. There hasn't been much dub of this style or quality released in the last five years.Messian Dread has a firm grasp of dub's history and the instruments that work most effectively in it. He plays handmade congo drums in a Nyabinghi style on "Ethopian Dub," follows the rub-a-dub style that the Roots Radics did so well on "Judgement Dub," and experiments with newer echo techniques on "99 Dub Street.   
LISTEN.com

 

Swirling pools of spoken-word samples, guitars, and hand drums build to full-on Dub excursions whose sunny keyboards, guitar stabs, and horn samples recall classic Roots Reggae. The heavy, thudding bass and echo-drenched sounds hearken back to the genre's classic artists. Occasionally, vocals will enter and sing songs of praise.   
UK based MP3 MAGAZINE

 

And righteous dub it is indeed. With a suprisingly heavy bass for MP3 and a nice spacious feel to the production, this is definitly the one the horizontal people should check out. You know who you are."   
Hoester Sound System

 

Messian Dread once again proves his ability to make gold out of any material he gets in his fingers."  
DUBFLASH.com

 

I don't know if there is someone in Middle Europe whos is more into the reggae and JAH culture than Messian Dread. It is amazing how he is able to put this spirit in his music. It sounds like originally jamaican 1970s dub! With every tone you hear that he is "in it". There are so many people shouting for modern produced dub sounding like the originals. Well, take this or cry for ever. Expect some heavy roots dub at it's best. PDF
