Feedback & Comments
My thanks to everyone for the kind words, and for just stopping by.
Some bad news... The site's regularly getting hacked at the moment - I'm an easy target as I wrote the code for these pages years ago, before I knew very much about website security and before the days of easy Wordpress installations. Long and short of it is that I just don't have the time to rewrite all the code to make it secure so I've had to put things into read only mode.
It's a shame as I do like to hear from people who enjoy the music and resources on here, makes the effort put into it all worthwhile. So drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to say hi.
And for those of you who enjoy tampering with other people's sites... give it a rest! I'm not exactly doing any harm. If anything, I'm trying to give something back and not asking for a thing in return. Find someone who deserves the hassle of being hacked. Peace.

Certainly love the site! Great tribute to Dub and Reggae music. You are an Oasis in the desert.
If you have the time though, I would love to get some background history on the midi riddims, some are well known others less, would love to know where they come from.

Very, very, very useful!
Many thanks for the time you put into this! Will have a lot of fun dissecting these classic riddims :)

I just left some comments for you in the sign up thing... all glowing of course.
I have one or two requests breddah:
BALTIMORE (the mid-1990s Penthouse version should be the easiest to bang out or convert i.e. Anthony B, Bun Down Soddom)
DOCTOR'S DARLING (NIGHT NURSE)
Anything from Unity sounds late 80s-1992 i.e. Lean Boot, Watch How the People Dancing. But that's a little obscure I know.

love the site and the resources a must for any reggae head, can i make a special request for the "loving pauper" riddim
I appreciate you are probably busy, but i think you will agree its a seminal riddim and a obvious gap in your superb collection.
P.S if i end up creating it mysled and wish to donate it to your site , how would i do that? what format would you want it in? i play real bass and and guitar would you accept a file that contains audio files as well? anywho peace love and pizzas

Hi mate. Thanks for taking the time to get in touch. It's always great to hear from people who enjoy the site.
Would gladly add your 'loving pauper' contribution. I guess the idea behind those riddim resources is that they're midi - which was intended to help non-players...If you do have the time, record the audio to a click and record bass and guitar, then email me the two separate tracks. (I work in cubase so can easily work from that) Let me have as much info as possible, i.e. tempo, chords played and ideally the notes played on the bass (saves me having to transcribe it by ear)... which as I mention on the page I'm a bit hit and miss with. I'll then make the midi file from that.
btw Krazy Luv' on your Soundcloud page is a top tune.I can well see that making an appearance on one of my mixtapes :)
For anyone interested, check this out:
forgot your name in the meantime ( classical and french, but can not get further in the cave ) but am still gratefull for the get-on-the-musical-train opportunities you gave me

Is BaroqueDub dead?
I hope not, but with no obvious updates for over a year it's looking like it.
hope it's just real life getting in the way of all the fun stuff

Hi Jess - No, the site's not dead! In fact there's a new mixtape just about to come out (expect it within a week or so) and I've also been working on some new music for a new digital 7" release. Stay tuned :)
Hey Jerome, how's things? Fatherhood - woohoo!
I'm in Northland now at a poly and would really like to use the 801 course we put together. Open Poly pulled it down and you have the only copy as a course page. Is it possible for you to send us a backup copy? I would really appreciate it. It's for students in a remote north location with no broadband so we will use portable Moodle.
Stay well, Deb

You probably already know about SubMachena, Robin Taylor-Firth and Rawle Bruce's dub project. The band is part of what Robin gets up to when he's not writing, recording or playing with Nightmares on Wax.
SubMachena just finished off a new tune which you might like to feature on your blog. It's called 'Ten Ton Dub', the Soundcloud file is here:
You might also find the following embed code useful:
SubMachena is a BlancoMusic act, the music is not yet available for purchase, this is for preview only. SubMachena remixes of BudNubac, Guts and Gelka are available to purchase, and can also be found on George Solar's second Comfy Dub compilation, out soon.
Thanks, hope you like it.

Congrats on your new addition to your family. I too have a new baby boy and I too take pleasure in the sleepless night. I love to just look at him as he sleeps with a full belly.
Thank you for the hard work that you put into every mix that you put out. I consider you an artist they way you take music and create a landscape. That takes talent. You alone have introduced me to more music then I thought was possible.
Keep up the great work. Thank you again and good luck with little Sebastian.

That's one of the nicest messages I've had in a long time! Makes all the hard work worthwhile when I hear that people are enjoying the music. Thanks for taking the time to leave a message.
I'm busy preparing for a DJ set at the Shambala music festival at the moment, which is why I've gone a bit quite on the web front but it does mean that I'm getting a lot of new music together and will come back in September with a bumper selection.
Sorry to keep you waiting so long!
Nice job on ya reggae riddim.
Could you please forward the tabs (bass + keyboard) for the every tongue shall tell riddim?
I would play it tonight in gig with my band and arrive straight away with the good ones!

Found this site a few days ago and have been gorging myself on the goodness therein - so many quality mixes and sides! I love everything you've got up here, from the MIDIs and samples to the radio player. My only request is...
I will be sharing this site with others.

More, more, more... not enough hours in the day unfortunately! Busy with work and life.. but I am currently working on a new baroquedub EP which shouldn't be too much longer before it's ready for release. I never put something out just for the sake of it - quality rather than quantity, I always say. And of course the usual semi-regular mixtapes will keep coming out, although I'd recommend subscribing to the rss feed for automated updates: http://feeds.feedburner.com/BaroqueDubPodcasts
Stay tuned :)
I found this via reggaeddl and i just downloaded your it's a lifestyle mix and i must say.. it's awesome. I'm at 28minutes atm,
i'm eager for your other work :)
thanks, good job and keep it up

I´m writting from brazil to say I and the members of my reggae band here are glad to have found a website very well structured and motivating for those who are starting new projects as we are.I hope to listen to many other mixtapes besides the 34 i´ve been listening lately...I await a password for future contacts...

Nice work on the P-Theory stuff! To think, I thought I was the only person on the planet that dug Quazar (I've worn the LP out!).
Do you still hear from Lee and Jason? I used to play with them as Shatterproof back in the day...

Hey Milan! A pleasure to hear from you, and delighted you're enjoying the P-theory remixes.
I'm still very much in touch with Lee, Damon, Fly and all of the Moseley posse. P-belly's harder to get hold of these days (settling down, currently buying a house in Solihull!) although he did make an appearance at my wedding the other week which was a real treat.
You may be interested in the archived fader5000 website: http://baroquedub.co.uk/archive/fader5000/

Hey Jerome - trust you had a great time in Cuba! Just to give you a heads up on the first South African reggae LP issued (Dread Warriors - 1982) - now available on a blog myself and a friend kickstarted in the last month - electricjive.blogspot.com.

Hi Jerome, greetings from Namibia. I certainly hope your absence does not mean you've moved again and that everything is back in boxes. We are still out here, understand the time it takes to make these mixes but we really appreciate the effort. Came across a cool quote the other day ""The whales don't sing because they have an answer; they sing because they have a song". Cheers Dave
Posted by: Dave on Wednesday 25 March 09 [06:39:08]
Added by 25-03-09 [10:16:39]
No, I haven't moved again - I don't think I could handle that for another decade! I'm busy at work and needed a bit of a break from the mixes... as the whales say, not to find the answer but to go find my song (great quote!)... I don't want to just churn out the mixes without any sense of quality control or any sense of purpose, and for a few weeks I simply didn't have a mix in me.
Things are looking up though :) I'm about to release a couple of dubbed-up remixes of southern funk I did for the P-Theory last year, and there's a new mixtape nearing completion - one that I'm as proud of as all of the others that have preceded it - which is the way it should be!
Thanks for taking the time to get in touch and for reminding me why I do these things in the first place - for you guys!
Stay tuned, stay patient - all good things come to those who wait :)

Errrr.... "Skyscrapers?"!!! "MPU's?"... :- baroquedub is a strictly non-commercial artistic enterprise dedicated to promoting music, creativity and a humanist ethos of share-and-share alike.
In an age when the internet seems to be about nothing other than commerce it's worthwhile remembering that most of the best things in life are not just free, they're impossible to put a value on because they're priceless: love, peace and freedom.

Sample you'll find at: http://baroquedub.co.uk/audio_samples.php
it's been a while since I've added any news ones but I blame that on the death of two hard-drives and the loss of my entire sample collection... I guess I'll get round to making some more some time in the future...
or you may be interested in some midi files (the download zips include a rendered mp3 of each riddim)
Excellent mixes, we have enjoyed them so much!
Thank you for sharing and giving us so much pleasure, we do not tire of listening to your stuff.

I came across your website/mixtapes (really enjoying the mixtapes btw!), U thought you might like some music from me. I make deep & melodic dubstep, it might be suitable for a future mixtape. You can hear it on the myspace page (myspace.com/thesisproductions). Take a listen and let me know if you're interested.. if so I'll hook you up with high quality MP3s.

Baroquedub regulars will already know that imho dubstep's in danger of going down the same 'by numbers' route as Jungle took when it morphed into Drum'n'Bass... but there's real quality here, and creativity.

Big up the operator! Thanks man - I couldn't agree with you more. The web's what we make it and we've all got to pull our weight if we want it to be more than just a virtual shopping mall, or lots of identikit Facebook boxes, one size fits all... Those Schlump Vibration mixtapes are exactly the kind of DIY creativity which keeps me excited. Great selection of tunes, they should feed my mp3 player for a long while! Highly recommended.

The closest I've come to a taste of Africa was Rokia Traore's recent London gig... having reinvented an acoustic approach to Malian music in the past, the lady's found the blues in the most profoundly rocking Led Zep fashion... I truly had an epiphany. And what a bass player she had with her. Blinding!
Bonjour Jerome, how are you? Its been a few years since we have connected. Still think sometimes of the time spent in ur studio in east london, that was fun!!!
Greetings from Aberdeen!!! Yeah still up in Scotland. Been thinking about u for some time and was wondering what u are up to. Great web site you have.

Thanks for the kind thoughts, Chris. Much appreciated.
Lots has been going on - not least moving house and work getting far too hectic... I also lost a ton of music with the death of two hard-drives. Lesson learned the hard way - don't back-up your files to two hard-disks purchased at the same time - when they fail, they're likely to go at the same time...!
I've just got to the end of all my DIY and unpacking of boxes and finally getting creative again - I've been working on some dubbed out southern funk mixes for friends the P-Theory (which I hope to stream or release on this site with the band's permission) and I've finally started on a couple of new mixtapes which are way too long overdue.
So stay tuned, don't despair. Service will be resumed in time for xmas and all should be back to normal in 2009.
it s a cool site

aahh... sorry mate! I've very recently moved house and been far too busy unpacking boxes to get down to a new mix. And then there's work which seems to be taking over my life at the moment :|
But hang on in there, I've recently started thinking about a new mix - listening to new tunes and old favourites... it hopefully shouldn't be too much longer, with an estimated release of early September...
Anyone not already signed up to the (very infrequent) mailing list should do so - I'll fire off a message to everyone when the mix is done.
Better late than never: Congratulation to your second anniversary. Vibrate on! Switch Docta

Added by 14-07-08 [09:37:56]Yes... I've not been very good at adding any new tunes recently. Part of the problem is that I don't want to put up too many of the tracks which will later appear on a mixtape... but stay tuned for some updates coming up soon. (I'm moving house, again! But as soon as I have broadband set-up, I'll get to work ;)
I really enjoyed reading your "skills" document! I am looking forward to listening to your mixtapes too. See you later in the month - bug hug - Terry

Former short-term UK resident (grad school at LSE), current New Orleans resident and massive music and culture enthusiast. Just dropping you a line to tell you how much my lady and I are enjoying your mixes. As long time bass player, engineer and "music snob" etc you have really re-inspired my love of dub, electro, downtempo and trip hop. I am rapidly collecting them all and they are also helping me stick through a rather tough time I'm going through right now. A very sincere thank you and keep on rockin'
Posted by: Bob on Friday 04 July 08 [04:28:50]
Hi Jerome, Really dig your mixes, in fact they are real hit at my local pool bar, keep it up and thanks.

my favourite over all :

the N°13, world music based.
and i'm listening to the N° 23 which sound quite good

Yeah... everyone loves that techdub and dubstep mixtape! I've been digging through the crates listening to lots of Basic Channel again recently so you may get a bit of a re-run on a future release. Stay tuned.
Glad to hear you also enjoyed the world music edition - eclecticism's what it's all about. :)
Hie Jerome, Thanks for your laud. It was a pleasure for me to work with the vinyl stuff again. Some of the records weren´t touch for about 10 years. (since we ran the Berlin Dub Club in the mid-nineties). By the way: the Opening Party was a success. We had a lot of fun, having a show in a combination like in the "old days". Most of the audience never heard us before (the were to young), but they danced until the daybreak.
Best regards, Switch Docta
P.S.: I listend to your your last 2 mixes this week on the way to my work and back. I love your uncopromising way to mix the styles and genres (always with at least one of my all time favourites e.g. "Kitchen at Partys"). Keep rocking!

As you know, always a big fan of your mixes too. Great to hear the re-opening night party went down a storm. There's no sell-by-date on quality :)
For those who haven't checked it out yet, or anyone who hasn't heard of the legendary DubClub, head over to DubClub Berlin Opening Night: The Switch Docta PreSelection for a great 3 hour mix of nothing but the best conscious dubwise selection circa '96.

Added by 02-05-08 [09:48:16]Hello REGGAE SINGER ON THE BEACH IN FLORIDA,
No need to shout! ;)
I don't sell my midi files, they're available for free from the website:
Click on the download link next to each one.
Massive massive big up on the site and all the music on it.
I don't normally email people to tell them how much I like their site but you seem to deserve it...
Stumbled across it whilst looking for sleng teng & some other stuff on midi which you delivered on then found the rest of the site - the mixes & your releases are currently getting me through writing my dissertation! Nice to see you representing the 'dub = eclecticism' ethos...
I know dub is big in NZ, always planned to visit there some day, have put on Salmonella Dub & Black Seeds in UK before & they're good lads. From mid Wales originally myself which I hear is quite similar to your home land
Thanks again for the music man will send ya some dubplates when i've finished em :)

Hey bro, as a Kiwi (Wellington) also relocated to London it's a real joy to check your fantastic mixtape sessions every month, with a nice inclusion of Kiwi artists peppered amongst the mixes.
Keep it up mate, always a pleasure.

Hey Old Friend!,
You've really got a knack for dissapearing. Never thought you'd end up way down in NZ though. I'll bet there's a story or two in that chapter of your life. And a female character or two...
Drop us a line sometime. Meanwhile, take care. Best wishes as always

Added by 21-01-08 [17:27:37]
I use Ableton Live - which is a real cheat for beat mixing and as it's not done in real time I get to try various things out without having to restart from the start of the set if I make a mistake or don't like something... not at all like using decks! But my aim is to create as smooth a musical journey as possible - not a DJ performance. That's why I call them mixtapes rather than DJ sets (or mixes) - it's getting back to the old school music compilations I use to make using dual cassette decks (if you're old enough to remember those :)
btw I don't always use Live's Warp function - the recent ska mixtape is done entirely without using any audio time stretching - just very careful placement and editing of the audio. I didn't want to compromise the natural groove and live feel of those tracks by making them conform to a rigid bpm.
Also I use a lot of editing - sometimes repeating parts of a tracks to make it blend more smoothly with the ones before and after, sometimes also with additional effects like reverb or delay to blend even more.
And finally, if I'm time stretching, I also use a lot of automation on the master tempo so that you don't end up with a mixtape at just one single tempo. I use subtle changes during tracks to have smooth changes in speed.
Hope that answers your question :) glad you're enjoying the music.
thanks for puttin up all those riddims....really nice resource...btw the bababoom you have is , i beleive, actually the instrumental used in shine & kris by shabba ranks, which is a version of "general" .
also, your real rock is real neat in that different all black key, and your dub organiser sounds more like the real rock in its original key...
i did the bababoom with the horns harmonies recently if you want it...i got a few others if you looking for more riddims to put up here..

always enjoying your stuff, I used 2 of your productions in my podcasts at the Electric Lion´s Den. You´ll find "Dark matter " in "Future Past" and "Party at my house" in "Dub from the Den".
If you interested in (and you are a little patient), I could send you a copy of these selections as an audio-cd, complete with cover and cd-label (I never sell these items, just give them away as a gift).
Let me know,

Jerome what a great website.
I hope all is well. Life in Bako is busy as always. We got great news for Matt and Marissa, he got promoted at last so life is good for all the Barricks!
Hope you are having a great time adjusting to life in the UK.

Posted by: keenan on Saturday 23 June 07 [08:08:16]
Wow, great work to compile all these riddims.
It's been trotting in my mind to produce "modern" versions of classic riddims. The one question I always had is: what about the rights on these riddims? Are there rights like on every other song? I find it so confusing that there are countless versions and interpretations of the same musical phrases. Maybe you can help me shed some light? Your help would be greatly appreciated.
