WILLI WILLIAMS: "SMUGG RECORDS ARE PIRATES"
DUBROOM (DUB) REGGAE NEWS AND VIEWS
WWW, October 3 1014 - In a very informative, but partly disturbing interview the Midnight Raver recently held with well known Reggae Singer Willi Williams, the Ammagideon Man was quoted about a release called "One Love". As the album was reviewed and promoted by the Dubroom, it was shocking to hear what the brethren had to say about this release. In short: it's pirated, don't buy!

Ask Bunny Wailer about the early Wailers Black Ark recordings you can find almost everywhere. Ask Scientist about his well-known Greensleeves Dub Series. Ask Willi Williams about "One Love. Not the concept, but the album. Released by UK-based Smugg Records. Who were so kind to send the Dubroom a promo copy years back when it was released. Which was subsequently reviewed and promoted from this very website.

This is what he has to say:

STEPPING ROOTS WITH DON GOLIATH: THE SOUND OF ROOTS STEP
AN INTERVIEW
WWW, June 2014 - Do not call it Dub Step, don't even call it "Dub Steppish", and especially not when the term sounds like a cuss to you. Call it Roots Step, for that is the name of the unique sound captured in no less than twenty-four chapters of the "Rootsstep To The World" series released by Don Goliath from his Berlin-based studio. With the help of elders like U Roy, Trinity and many others, his "Rootsstep Division Recordings" label is ready to bring the Roots Vibration to a brand new generation. Are we? Time for an in-depth listen and talk with the don himself.

Dubstep. Just saying the word can get you into a long discussion or even debate. Every one has an opinion, every two disagree about everything two can possibly disagree over. And, as with all Dub/Reggae derivates, it can be kind of really difficult to discover any Roots. Dubstep. Not really something to check and not really something to disagree over, either. It's just not relevant. 

Or is it?

Pete Murder Tone Interview with Ray Hurford of Small Axe
AN INTERVIEW
Ray Hurford, creator of Small Axe, that most excellent of reggae fanzines (now on the web) is a well loved and respected reggae fanatic. Turning his hand to producing the music he loved near the turn of the century, 2001 saw released of Original Version -- the first of four albums from his outfit The Small Axe People.

This was one of the most intriguing and singular reggae records ever. It has inspired some very strange and extreme reactions and it certainly got some curious reviews. It was compared by various reviewers to Steve Reich, Daniel Miller's Silicon Teens, early Lee Perry and Lloyd Barnes' productions, Prince Jazzbo's early digital rhythms, and to Berlin outfit Rhythm and Sound.

Ray was kind enough to speak to Pete Murder Tone recently about the early days of The Small Axe People.

Pete Murder Tone Interview with Russ D of Disciples
AN INTERVIEW
The Disciples are indisputably key figures in the UK ‘New School’ Roots/Dub scene which emerged in the mid to late 80s. Starting out building rhythms in the bedroom they progressed to making dubplates and then full albums for Jah Shaka. Later they went on to put out their own releases and to run the Boomshackalacka soundsystem & magazine. Right now in ’05 the Disciples are producing some of the toughest conscious sounds anywhere--with both new and established UK & JA singers and deejays. Initially they were a two-person crew, consisting of brothers Russ and Lol Bell-Brown. Lol has since moved on to pursue other stuff, but still retains close links to the scene. Current main man/producer Russ (aka Russ D/Russ Disciple) was kind enough to speak to Pete Murder Tone recently about the musical development of the Disciples over the years.
