November 2008 - Reggae News? That's not just
a boring list of information that nobody is
really waiting for. At least, not in the UK.
At least, not according to the people behind
the Reggae news UK website.
as "The UK's Leading Reggae
Website", Reggae News UK is most
definitely an essential place in Cyberspace.
One could argue about that self-description,
one could not argue that the name of the
website is in fact an understatement.
website has Reggae news. On the frontpage,
we'll find the latest news item from the
website. A little more down, there's a list
of interesting things "From Around The
Web". That's just above a nice list of
recent Site Updates.
So, why is
the name an understatement?
you'll also go to Reggae news UK when you
want to book a crucial DUB and Reggae artist
or Sound System. From JAH Warrior to the
Twinkle Brothers, from Misty in Roots to the

Let's go to
the Interviews, then. For that is a thing
which is of interest to us all. Reggae News
UK interviews Jimmy Cliff, Reggae News
interviews Twilight Circus, Reggae News
interviews the Twinkle Brothers, et cetera
et cetera. Interesting reads!
there's an impressive list of interesting
reviews too. DVD's, CD's and vinyl records
are often reviewed even before their release
date. Definitely not limited to UK releases,
the website pays attention to every style
within the rich Culture called Reggae.
Sound Samples of releases, you can also find
quite a few full length MP3 files. The
Dubroom has reviewed most of them, just like
the excellent Podcasts released on an
irregular basis by the Reggae News UK
interesting gallery, sometimes a competition
with prices, lists of Radio Shows and a
small section of Book Reviews? Sure, it's
there. Among many more things.
This is the
kind of website you put in your favorites.
the kind of website that you want to
subscribe to. The kind of website that you
use to find Quality Reggae music and to stay
up-to-date with so much more than
"just" the UK Reggae scene.
