Deep South Dub
Bayou International Records
Dubstep seems to be the latest hype in the music world, which is why D.J. T-Roy’s Deep South Dub fits right in while still being interesting and catchy enough to stand out. With pure hints of reggae sandwiched in with dubstep beats, T-Roy brings something to the table that deserves more recognition. The New Orleans based Reggae Dancehall D.J. has created music that is chill enough to easily enjoy while still getting things done. If I were still in college, I would listen to this while studying for midterms. The beats aren’t overpowering or overwhelming; this isn’t like the rave-like craziness of Bassnectar or the tired beats of today’s radio rap and dubstep. While each song can easily become a listener’s new favorite, T-Roy presents his loyal fans and listeners with a variety of music to please the diverse crowds of the Big Easy. “Redemption Rock” is a personal favorite, with brass tones mixed in with southern beats and dubstep. As the former opener for Ziggy Marley and The Wailers, it’s no surprise that T-Roy’s expert mixes and popularity has helped him to expand into the kind of D.J. you don’t have to be at a club to experience. With Deep South Dub, you can enjoy D.J. T-Roy anywhere.
