LABELS, ARTISTS AND PRODUCERS

QUESTION
I want to be featured on The Dubroom, but I am not religious. Do all the tracks or featured labels have to be religious?
ANSWER
No, of course not, as long as your music is not of pornographic or anti-Jah content, and as long as it is dub or (other) reggae. We're all responsible for ourselves. On the other hand: when you deal with Reggae Music and you are not religious, you have at least found a way to deal with the many religious Reggae releases. 
QUESTION
Do I need to make a certain style of music in order to be featured on this site?
ANSWER
Yes, you absolutely do. The music you make must be (Dub) Reggae or related. And, equally important, it must have a certain quality standard. 
QUESTION
How do I get my midi files on the Dubroom?
ANSWER
We do no longer keep track of the latest midi-files. Midi has gone back to the studio when mp3 made it's way into the consumer's computer players. 
QUESTION
How do I get my MP3 files on the Dubroom?
ANSWER
At the moment, the Dubroom doesn't carry any third party MP3 files other than the ones we choose to put on there for the Dubroom readers/visitors to download. These are generally musical works that have been released under Creative Commons Copyright and selected because of their quality.

We advice to READ THIS ARTICLE on uploading your material to sites that will let you upload your music for free as well. 

When your music is somewhere online, join the Dubroom Message Boards and start promoting your music. Or contact the Dubroom via the contact pages and tell us a bit about your music. When it fits with the overall quality of the reviewed music on the Dubroom, you will find your music independently reviewed which is frankly the best form of promotion you can get.

QUESTION
No man, I mean I want to be featured on yuor Net Label.
ANSWER
Don't expect anything, but you can always try and contact us. Your music has to be better than the music that's already there, and there's a list of requirements. One very specific requirement is that your music has to be licensed. It has to be legal in the sense that you do not use recordings you are not licensed to use. 
QUESTION
What are the requirements to get my music reviewed or released on the Dubroom?
ANSWER
As you can guess, there are many! People come to the Dubroom to find good music. The policy of the website is not to review crap, so when it's on the Dubroom, it's good. And unfortunately this means that most music submitted to the Dubroom will not be put on the site. To spare yourself a disappointment, it might be fruitful to read the list of requirements below.

Here is a list:

  • The music must be (morally) legal. No illegal mp3 links.

  • The music must be (Dub) Reggae or related.

  • Related music is most likely not to be put on the Dubroom.

  • Related to (Dub) Reggae is defined by The Dubroom as: ragga, ska, dancehall and more recently dubstep.

  • The music must have at least the quality that is on average found here in The Dubroom.

  • The recordings must be of reasonable quality, not practice tape style recorded with one microphone, unless the music is historically relevant.

  • The music must be available for free download, and must be full-length.

  • The music should not contain any offenses towards the Creator.

  • The music should not have so-called adult contents and should not contain calls to violence, in other words, no slackness.

  • The Dubroom will decide where to place the music in this site.

Artists and/or producers looking to get their music on the Dubroom Net Label need not apply when their sole intention is to be promoted through the Net Label. Appearing on the Net Label should also lift up the average quality of music in it's catalogue.  

QUESTION
I sent you an email but did not hear anything back. What's up?
ANSWER
The Dubroom receives a lot of mail, for example from artists who want their music to be featured somewhere on the Dubroom. It is simply impossible to answer each and every mail back. When you haven't heard anything after two weeks, you can safely assume that we didn't find the time to write back. It is also possible, that your mail has been received but was already answered in the Dubroom FAQ.
