Messian Dread – Tunes For Thoughts

Last year we introduced to you through there-release of the2007 track Maranatha Messian Dread, that versatile personality from the Netherlands:Producer, singer, player of instruments, writer, reviewer, selector, and editor/webmaster of Dub room, one of the longest running platforms/net labels promotingDubReggae and Consciousnesssince 1997.
Tunes For Thoughts is a compilation of tracks from Messian Dread’s archives, produced by him between 2006 and 2008.It is the first time that they are all put together in a compilation, since they were originally released in the pastas separate digital EPs with many alternative versions of each track. We have compiled for you the discomixes, which is the trademark of Messian Dread.
In Reggae, when you like a tune, you listen to it a few minutes and after the vocal version you play the dub. But the discomix tradition is something that is not really seen or heard these last years. A discomix version is there to make you feel the experience, to feel and meditate. You’ll listen toa full track in a discomix style and when you look back to Reggae tradition, you know what this is about.
The term ‘Discomix’ is not very familiar. It comes from the 70’s and 80’s. We talk about a tune with lyrics, followed by a dub version. Allin one long mix.A concept hardly followed any where nowadays, because of sentiments or whatever. Messian Dread has been pushing itto the limits and we as a label, we recognize him as a pioneer respecting this format and we forward it to you. This is stuff not only to listen but to be part of the experience as well.
Enjoy the vibes. They were produced for your enjoyment and edification throughout the decades. Most of all, produced for you in freedom. Free to hear he messages and free to think

The sound of Reggae is widely recognised because of its acoustically formed bass and drum downbeat, and its offbeat rhythm section. With such a diversity in style it is also considered complex enough to attract progressively minded musicians. A music that has a strong association with dance covering a variety of styles while also offering a background beat for those sharing Biblical chants of Zion. It is hard to ignore Reggae’s influence and how it interacts with our day-to-day lives. Shared as background music for films and advertising driving its heavy bass lines literally felt wherever rock and pop are played. Reggae has an affinity with mainstream British pop; recognised within the hip-hop culture and considered “cool” by those with no connection to Jamaica. As lovers of reggae my aim is to build a community of reggae followers that can share thoughts, news, events as listeners, artists, DJ’s and hosts.
