Not only do I create and perform musical works with all my heart and soul, I'm at least as passionate about writing down my thoughts and feelings. Reasoning, meditating and analyzing is all part of this and by putting it down in words Jah has enabled me to share it with others.

MY NEW SOUND AND SOME THING
MESSIAN DREAD UPDATE JUNE 7 2014
WWW, June 7 2014 - It's been a while since my last update, even though it hasn't been quiet in the Dubroom lately. Still, it's time for an update about this-and-that since too many things a gwaan where others are simply new.

First of all, I am typing this into the memory of a brand new computer. It's a powerful machine but given the fact it came with Windows 8, I have yet to see the real power. Getting Reason 3.0 working and seeing how it supposedly eats like 6 gigabytes of RAM is quite an experience but in the end, after tweaking and learning I will get the darn thing to work. After all, the reason for this brand new machine I'm working on now is to further expand my new musical sound.

New Sound

Probably you will have noticed that the two most recent releases from the Dubroom Studio/Net Label have quite a different sound than the ones released before that. Yes, it's a new sound which has been brewing in my mind and soul for the last years. I was totally fed up with the things I did, sound-wise. Still, I wasn't ready for a next step: a situation which lasted several years. In itself nothing strange: I've been continually releasing music since around 1997 so it's not bad to take a few steps back at the moment you just know you're not ready.

Then, all of a sudden, I released "Dillinger - Dub the Wicked", a tune in my old sound. It had a short phrase by Dillinger which I obtained and this particular release kind of triggered me to make some drastic changes in the sounds and the effects. I knew what I wanted to do and I decided that I was ready to invest in some licenses.

As said, as done.

The last weeks I have produced over twenty tracks, of which I have released four thus far. I'm working hard on the sound but then I ran into the fact I needed and could get a new computer so now I'm working hard to overstand Windows 8 as I could not one-on-one migrate all my settings and sounds. Things will settle as always...

I don't really want to say too much about the things I'm working on, but the last two releases give a hint as to what direction everything is turning. I've been getting positive feedback in private circles (no, not my family) and this is truly encouraging. Let me just say I want to release an album later in the year, and perhaps more. Albums, not years, that is.

New Site-Look

You will also have noticed that the Dubroom website was kind of just sitting there without anything really happening. This is changed as well. When you're reading this on the Dubroom website, you will notice that the look is totally different and there are no advertisements whatsoever. No ads is better for your privacy and for the speed wherein pages are loaded. It's so much better this way.

This whole renovation of the Dubroom website was as necessary as updating my sound. But then, the Dubroom isn't a small site and the changes I had in mind and which are now implemented were kind of complex. I've tried to make a lay out which suits everyone, from 800*600 resolution to widescreen, while enhancing the navigation through the site.

While the new look and navigation is there, the renovation is not really done. But then, the Dubroom is an ongoing project and so there will always be a thing or two under construction. At this moment though, my priority is with the works in the studio both online and offline. 

Let me conclude this little update by saying that where I used to share everything I had planned, I think that I have now learned not to do it as quick. It's biblical as well, cause we can't really plan our tomorrow and instead have to find out what Jah's will for us is, right here and right now. 

One Love,
Messian Dread
