DubStep music is growing in popularity and has it’s roots in Dub, Reggae and Jungle music. I used to love to hear this music playing between punk rock bands at Goldenvoice gigs in the ’80s. Was glad to find this podcast as a way to tap into this largely underground movement of great roots rock. Enjoy.
The Positive Hip Hop podcast is a series of shows that feature Hip-Hop with a message.
One of my favorites is Episode 6: “Social & Political Change”. This episode is jam-packed with socially aware hip hop with a great beat. Tracks include: KRS-One – “Illegal Business”, Head-Roc – “America!” and Ozomatli ft Common – “Embrace The Chaos”.
