March 2010 - After releasing two impressive
Net Albums in which Heartical showcased his
thoughtful, inspiring style within the Art
Of Dub, the Dubroom is blessed to present
this 25-track double dUb album in which he
definitely put himself on a next, higher
level. Read all about what can only be
described as a journey where sounds and
sights become one as major themes of life
say that Joie de Vivre really should not be
seen as a collection of singles should be
way to little to describe this mega-project:
it really is an experience you should enjoy
from to top to the very last drop while
meditating on the titles. Heartical truly
masters the art of using dUb technology to
–in some way- create an “audible
picture”, and when you listen to all the
twenty-five tracks in a row you are taken to
what can truly be called the Deeper Realms
steppers are combined with very peaceful,
almost ambient dUbs. Upfull, joyful vibes
are combined with almost haunting effects
but throughout the whole album the bass
(foundation) remains strong.
de Vivre (Joy of Life) is definitely not for
those that are looking for an easy-to-chew
collection of totally uninteresting
instrumentals or B-sides, it’s not for the
weakhearts or for those that want to keep
Reggae and Dub in the past.

Life, that is.
album deals with many things Jah Children
have to face. Not everything in the life is
that joyful, obviously. That’s why the
first part of the double album takes us
straight to the tuffness of Dub, back to the
bass, the Epicentre of the Dub Dimension in
which this work of art is constructed.
second part confronts us with the horrible
reality of the existence of
and Lucifer in this time and place. A
reality, which makes many people confused,
kept in prisons within themselves as some

ESD (Extra-Sensory Deprivation).
and Lucifer, however, will fall. As Jah
Children had to go through the
in the days of old, so do Jah Children in
this day, these Last Days of Babylon. The
third part of the double dUb album shows
where it truly is all about: drinking from
the streams of Living Water, because it is A
Time To Dance when the knowledge is there
that Jah Children are truly Blessed and
Forever is their destiny.
themes for twenty-five tuff dubs which will
appeal to the love of contemporary, digital
Dub as it is becoming increasingly popular
thanks to the efforts of artists who are not
afraid to use contemporary technology and
create some true, Heartical works of Art
which could not have been made let’s say
in a not so distant past.
