November 2014 - The urban, futuristic
atmosphere of this release is depicted in
the art work that comes with it. Over ten
minutes of deep Dub created from two brand
new original Dubroom riddims: here is Dub
ways, this release marks the beginning of
yet another change in the Dubroom's studio.
With the recent arrival of Propellerhead's
Reason 8.0 music production software and the
Dubroom's in-depth coverage of the Digital

dwell in it. Keeping your roots and culture
where they should be is often made
impossible by a multitude of rules,
regulations and repression. That's what this
