681 is a magic number!

As some of you may know I’ve been podcasting since January 2006. Back then we had a limited resource of places where podcasters could get “podsafe” music.  The best place to find, creative commons licensed (often free) music were netlabels. Guess what? It still is. I’ve had a look through my archives and tried to draw up a list of netlabels (and other websites) I have used over the years. I’ve removed the resources where promotions have been paid for. I’ve just tried to focus on the grassroots, the free and the CC resources. It turns out there are 681 of them.

Many of these labels are long dead, others still very much alive, and some just wake up each year on July 14th and release something for Netlabelday. I’ve not included links because some are out of date and others have moved. If you ever want to locate a release from one of these labels then please do ask me pete.cogle@gmail.com. It’s always possible I have a copy squirrelled away somewhere.

The number will always get larger, but here’s the first 681……

Dubsalon – Durban Chamber [iD.068]

I first heard Dubsalon at ReggaeDubWise and immediately fell in love with his dub. When I heard from Volker, over at Id.EOLOGY that Dubsalon was making and album, and it would come out on the netlabel, I knew that would be something to look forward to.

That time has now come and Id.EOLOGY presents Durban Chamber: an 8-track album featuring some of the best dub you’ll hear coming out of Argentina.

There’s nothing minimal or dubtech going on here. It’s full-phat dub, from a master. As soon as you hear the driving bass of In A Dream, you know you’re going to be “in the zone” for the duration. Shifting Mood, lives up to it’s name by synthesing bleepy electronica, accordion and wobbly bass drops.

There are the typical dubby vocal samples spread through the album, but essentially the album is instrumental. Although staying true to dub throughout, Dubsalon plays with dubstep, downbeat, electronica and jazzy influences. Yes, there’s harmonica, yes there are bleeps and echos, but this is true “magpie music”, and every track brings in a new influence.

There’s a surprising lack of a Latin American feel, considering Dubsalon comes from Argentina. Not to say that it’s missing entirely, just subdued. By the time you get to the last track, From The Sea, there’s a definitely a “watery” vibe going on.

Not content with 8-tracks, the album also contains an additional 7-track mix put together by Saetchmo. He is of course is the resident DJ of the Berlin #tassebier posse from Kreuzberg Berlin’s Blogrebellen, with whom I had such a great time when I was last in the city. Not only that, but producer of the weekly Echochamber show, which is a must for all dub-heads.

So, have I said enough?  Have you downloaded the album yet and plugged it into your ears?  What are you waiting for?

ReggaeDubWise down again!

It looks like the new owner of ReggaeDubWise has taken the site down. The comment on the facebook site (not managed by the current owner) says:

It appears that the new site owner bailed on reggaedubwise.com He will not answer any of my emails and it appears they suspended the site. I have all the software and a new domain name. I do not want this new project to be reggae only but have many other genres similare to reverbnation.com.

Although there are a lot of additional great netlabels out there serving the dub community, RDW has always been a great  home for dub music and the source of great dub for The Dub Zone and The Dub Step Zone. It’s always had a rocky road, especially as the last owner has cancer, but let’s hope something good happens.

ReggaeDubWise up for sale

This was just posted up in the RDW forum…

Due to my ongoing battle with cancer, I do not feel i have the time or energy to devote to RDW any longer. For months I thought i had a buyer but that deal fell through over the past week.  I would hope that a member or artist will purchase but will sell to anyone. I have bills piling up all over the place and need cash.  I priced it well under market value but I need out NOW.  Listing can be seen here http://flippa.com/auctions/108287/Large-Music-Site-for-sale feel free to contact me in the future at chorton581@gmail.com
Thanks again
Carl

Carl has done a huge amount for the Reggae Community over the years, and for that we all owe him a debt of gratitude.  Does anyone have $2,500 to spend to save RDW or anyone have an aide for a collective purchase?

Reggae Tribe 2 by 2

We now have two dub communities. ReggaeDubWise is back online, thanks to some rethinking by Carl, who’s been accepted into to a cancer program.  We all hope that this works out for him!

And thanks to Gadman, we still have our new DubArk, so all the reggae tribe can be saved 2 by 2.  Irie!

Reggae Tribe 2 by 22018-04-20T12:46:59+00:00

All Aboard The DubArk!

And so it came to pass that Gadman built an Ark for all dub lovers exiled from the land of ReggaeDubWise and he called it http://dubark.com.  Here weary travellers can unburden themselves of many troubles by listening to great dub music and can share in a fellow community of dubsters.

ReggaeDubWise is dead. Long live the Dub Ark. Blessed be the dubmakers!

All Aboard The DubArk!2018-04-20T12:47:00+00:00

Farewell ReggaeDubWise

It’s been confirmed that the ReggaeDubWise.com community has closed down.  This is a real shame, not just for the listeners of my podcasts, who have enjoyed the music, not just for the dubsters that have used the community for sharing, improving and help each other with their music, but also for the Carl Horton, and Rob Connelly who have given so much to make it work.

Carl is suffering from cancer and Rob has lost a close friend, a relationship and even his home during 2009.  Regardless of your faith or your views, please spare a thought for these guys today and pray that 2010 will be a better year for them.

Farewell ReggaeDubWise2018-04-20T12:47:00+00:00

Support for Alionsonny

Support Alionsonny

If you like my podcasts then you will undoubably have heard me play Alionsonny at some stage. He’s always given away over 100 pieces of music for free over the years and has been a great character in the dub communities. I’ve never met him personally, but feel he’s part of a great community of dub lovers.

He’s in trouble at the moment, and needs our help.  Read more about his predicament at Reggaedubwise, and if you can help him out, then please consider donating, using the button below.

One Love!
