Few artists enjoy a legacy that involves a re-engineering of the very genre in which they work. Lee “Scratch” Perry is such an artist. As a pioneer of dub reggae Perry viewed the mixing console as musical instrument in its own right. The influence of his revolutionary approach has been felt world-wide and into genres far beyond reggae. His 1976 effort, "Super Ape", is considered a masterpiece of this or any genre. Working with The Upstetters at his Black Ark studio, Perry created a sound with such a lasting appeal that The Rough Guide includes "Super Ape" as one of their 100 Essential Reggae releases.

Tony Clarke is from Waterhouse, St. Andrew Jamaica. At the tender age of 10 he started following sound systems like Sir Mike The Musical Dragon with the great toaster Prince Ruff at the controls, and King Tubby's with the legendary U-Roy. Tony Clarke did his first recording in New York in 1971 at Hugh Hendricks recording studio called "Righteous Man" of which he played both bass and lead guitar. The band was later managed by the legendary band leader/trombonist Carlos Malcolm.Tony Clarke decided to write the song “Going Home” to reference the roots of his music. In those days and even now good reggae music that was being recorded in the United States was not receiving the approbation from home because, in Jamaica they felt that the best reggae music could only come from and be created in Jamaica to substantiate the true feeling of the genre. So he decided to go back to Jamaica and record “Going Home” at Harry J Studio with Sylvan Morris as engineer.The rhythm track was played by Lloyd Parks (Bass), Devon Richardson (Drum), Andy Bassford (Lead Guitar), Winston "Bo-Pee" Bowen (Rhythm Guitar), Franklyn "Bubbler" Waul (Keyboard), David Madden & Junior "Chico" Chin (Horns). He also recorded the cover version to “Hey Little Girl” originally done by Dee Clark. For this 12'' vinyl edition, the artwork was done with a vintage photo of Tony Clarke in front of his house at Waterhouse and extended liner notes on the back cover.

JahYu: the Korean word for ‘freedom’, this is an artist whose music is rooted in the notion of freedom, freedom of sound, freedom of expression, freedom from mind and freedom of the soul. JahYu uses his creative freedom to connect directly with his ancestors and create music that somehow transports the listener through time and space. Oriental flute and string melodies slide effortlessly amongst powerful roots-based dubstep, creating a sound that is unique and full of flavour. This enigmatic Korean-German producer blends both sides of his heritage, the digital steppers that emerged from Europe in the 1990’s alongside the traditional oriental music of his mother’s homeland, Korea, augmented by a deeper exploration of contemporary bass music.

It's been around three years since JPattersson opened up a whole new horizon of formerly unheard possibilities between the worlds of Dub and Techno. A lot has been happening ever since, and that’s very noticeable on his second album. It still has all the signature elements of JPattersson: There's his dreamy, virtuous trumpet play and his witty vocals, there's his dubby delays and heavyweight beats which often line up in a Downbeat rhythm. However, besides his fanfares there's now also many folks, many musical friends who contribute to the vibe of this album. There's a track with Berlin MC Longfingah, latin-flavoured rhythms from Polish Reggae and Dancehall producer Dreadsquad as well as a stylistically wide range of remixes that reflect the symbiotic cooperation and mutual inspiration of these last years.

Mastered by Sam at Precise. ZamZam Sounds welcomes London-based producer Ojah to the fold, best known for his rich analog sound and expert live mixing on numerous 7” and 12” releases on his own excellent Alchemy Dubs label. With a sound at once personal and classic, Ojah has been carving a beautiful niche for himself that we are proud to forward. “Cycles” opens with ominous synths building steadily with the introduction of clave, tambourine and a militant steppers kick. A gorgeous bassline and piano figure drop in, accented with insistent skanks, syndrum, rimshots, more percussion, and a powerfully repetitive, hypnotic, sonar ping in the distance - like a lighthouse cutting through dark and dangerous fog. Fear Not Dub is a militant steppers tune cut from similar sonic cloth, replacing the syndrum with bright claps and rich toms, and adding a theremin-like synth melody and impressionistic melodica courtesy of Ojah’s frequent collaborator, The Specials’ own Nikolaj Torp Larsen, aka Nik Torp. Deep and driving mid-tempo sound system tunes for all those with a passion for hands-on-desk live mixing and dubbing in the tradition

Black Man’s Pride is the striking new Studio One collection of deep righteous reggae, featuring Horace Andy, Alton Ellis, The Gladiators, Sugar Minott, The Heptones, Freddie McGregor, Cedric Brooks & more.While the righteousness of blackness is at the heart of the Rastafarian faith, this collection illustrates how black pride remained a central theme, if not the defining essence, at the very core of all the music created at Studio One Records under the direction of Clement ‘Sir Coxsone’ Dodd.In order to understand the centrality of black identity in the music created at Studio One, we need look no further than Clement ‘Sir Coxsone’ Dodd who created the first black-owned record company in Jamaica.In similar fashion Alton Ellis’s defining ‘Black Man’s Pride’ brings up emotions that are at the heart of many of these uplifting songs. Alton Ellis’ birthplace was the Trench Town ghetto of Kingston, also the birthplace of The Wailers, Ken Boothe and many other Studio One luminaries.Clement Dodd established a musical empire firmly rooted by the core musicians working at Studio One, many of whom came out of the Alpha School for Wayward Boys, essentially an orphanage run by Roman Catholic nuns, whose luminaries include Don Drummond, Johnny Moore, Leroy ‘Horsemouth’ Wallace, Cedric Brooks, Vin Gordon, Tommy McCook & more.Many of the songs featured here come from the transitory phase in reggae at the start of the 1970s, after the exhilaration of Ska and following the cooling down of Rocksteady. While reggae awaited the arrival of roots, Studio One’s vocalists were already producing some of the moodiest music imaginable! Here are 18 heavyweight tunes, both classic cuts and super-rare tunes!

Die Schweizer verbeugen sich gen Space Rock, scheuen aber den puren Dub nicht und müssen in einemAtemzug mit der Präzision der Uhrwerke genannt werden, die die Eidgenossenschaft so auszeichnet. Dassaber in den Kantonen des Landes ein derart gechillter Slo-Mo-Dub entwickelt wird, der weltweit für Furoresorgt, ist Dub Spencer und Trance Hill zu verdanken. Bekannt für ihre formidable Binnendynamik derKompositionsfähigkeiten, das klassische Riddimhandwerk, den psychedelischen Sound ihrer Gitarren, diewummernden Bässe in Infraschallnähe, die Spacesounds und grandiosen Sounddimensionen. Auf demneuen Album "Deep Dive Dub" gehen sie tiefer unter die Oberflächen als jeder andere, bis an den Boden derOzeane aus Rhythmus. Und so rollen die schweren, fetten Grooves anstelle der dem Reggaeinnewohnenden Leichtigkeit. Hypnotisch ziehen die allesamt im Jazz ausgebildeten Musiker ihre Bahnen ineinem Space-Rock-Dub-Elektro-Gefilde. Bei einigen Tracks gönnt sich die Band die Künste des LuzernerExperimentalvokalisten Bruno Amstad. So wie wohl keine elektronisch versetzte Spielart hat sich Dub überdie Jahre von allerlei kurzlebigen Trends unbeeindruckt erwiesen. Weder sklavisch angelehnt an die großenjamaikanischen Helden der 70er-Jahre noch verloren in den weiten Welten des elektronischen Dub, gehenDub Spencer und Trance Hill ihren eigenen reduzierten, abstrahierten und manchmal ironischen Weg überdie Schalter und Dioden der Mischpulte dieser Erde.

In the early 80's, violence take over Jamaica and many artists left the island included Coxsone Dodd. He opened Studio One in New York at 3135 Fulton Street. Few years later, legendary member of The Gaylads, B.B. Seaton, went to New-York to visit Coxsone. B.B. Seaton wrote 'Dancing In The Moonlight' and organized a studio session. He built a riddim close to Earons' classic 'Land Of Hunger'. Then he went to famous Blank Tape studio to mix the tunes. The result is a huge groovy electro disco reggae dub tune. You will get a seven minutes extended mix on A-side with a perfect transition between vocal and version. The B-side contains one version, and a drum percussions instrumental. This reissue was made from the original master tape and the spirit of the first artwork.

Scientist keeps things lively with plenty of reverb and echo-treated percussion, ghostly piano parts, video game sound effects, and other various wobbly interjections from the mixing board. And adding to the record’s expert evocation of the Halloween spirit are some fiendishly voiced intros, the cover art’s cartoon potpourri of horror film characters, and the dubious claim made in the liner notes that Scientist mixed it all at midnight on Friday the 13th (reach for the flashlights kids). Along with Keith Hundson’s Pick a Dub and Lee Perry’s Blackboard Jungle Dub, this excellent Scientist release is one of the essential dub albums available.

This is the second installment of deep roots Rastafarian reggae at Studio One and features classic music from some of the most important figures in reggae music – Alton Ellis, The Heptones, Jackie Mittoo, The Gladiators – alongside a host of rarities and little-known recordings, such as a truly rare Mystic Revelation of Rastafari seven-inch single, Willie William’s first ever recording ‘Calling’ and Horace Andy’s righteous (and equally rare) masterpiece ‘Illiteracy.’Black Man’s Pride 2 extends the legacy of Studio One’s ground-breaking path in roots reggae which began at the end of the 1960s and continued throughout the 1970s. The album tells the story of how the rise of Studio One Records and the Rastafari movement were interconnected, through the adoption of the Rastafari faith by key reggae artists – everyone from the Skatalites and Wailers in the 1960s, major singers such as Alton Ellis and Horace Andy at the end of the decade, through to major roots artists such as The Gladiators in the 1970s – and how Clement Dodd consistently recorded this heavyweight roots music throughout Studio One’s history.The sleeve-notes to this album also discuss the links between Rastafari and Studio One in time and place, noting how both the religion and Clement Dodd’s musical empire had their roots in the intense period of pre-independence Jamaica in Kingston, expanded in the 1960s following the visit of Haile Selassie in 1966, and how roots music then came to dominate reggae music in the early 1970s. Also discussed is how the outsider stance of both reggae music and the Rastafari movement relate back many hundreds of years to the original rebel stance of the Maroons, escaped slaves who set up self-sufficient enclaves in the hills of the Jamaican countryside.

Soul Sugar drop their own reggae version of Marvin Gaye’s "I Want You". French outfit Soul Sugar – the brainchild of Guillaume “Gee” Metenier – deliver yet another soulful reggae 12”, this time a cover version of Marvin Gaye’s 1976 classic "I Want You". Jamaicain native Leonardo Carmichael sings lead vocals and legendary drums and bass duo Sly & Robbie add their flavor to the mix, with two versions on side B. Marvin Gaye’s single "I Want You" was a big step forward for his sound & vision and marked a change in direction – from hip Motown Soul to a more sultry, Disco sound. Marvin's vocals are notably intimate and the lyrics are more explicit, more personal. An original soul classic, "I Want You" is memorable for its unique combination of lush harmonies, a mesmerizing groove and the apparent sexiness of the theme itself. Soul Sugar's Discomix version combines a smooth mixture of reggae, soul and funk over beefy bass lines, designed for heavyweight sound systems. Sly & Robbie, rhythm duo known for their studio work on countless reggae classics since the 1960s deliver their version, taking us back to the golden age of Reggae, the days when it was typical for Jamaican musicians to record their own versions of American soul tunes ... Ace producer Jahno dubs the mix live and direct to tape, from his very own ' N.O.F Studio'.

Colon Man is the exceptional debut album proper by visionary Jamaican dancehall artists Gavin Blair (Gavsborg) and Jordan Chung (Time Cow) plus their extended crew, aka Equiknoxx - once again for Demdike Stare’s DDS label. Where their widely acclaimed Bird Sound Power primer compilation, issued on DDS in 2016, brought the rest of the world up to speed with the music produced between late ‘00s and 2015, their first album now brings a 2020 sound into sharp, technoid focus thru a baker’s dozen steely, heat-seeking riddims galvanised with clinical electronics and a Midas Touch approach to sampling.The record’s title, Cólon Man refers to a Jamaican tale (and song) about a mysterious character, whom, like Marcus Garvey, was one of over 100,000 Jamaicans who returned from working in Cólon on completion of the Panama Canal - regarded among the greatest feats of engineering known to humankind, physically connecting the greatest bodies of water on the planet. In context of the album, Gavsborg and Timecow take the story as a metaphorical foundational for a roots and future sound, acknowledging the vital groundwork of previous generations of producers, whilst soundly contextualising their mutant new advancements of Jamaican Dancehall.Recorded between December 2016 and June 2017, the results of Colón Man form a stark, stripped down and conceptually blinding record. In tone and texture, the duo favour far colder, more abstract sounds, crucially lit up with sparingly used samples that lend the record its dissonant, harmonic colour and bittersweet hooks, stylishly feeding forward their playfully weird sense of humour into a rugged, nutty and even noisily imagineered set.Bookended by the gauzy, Detroit-compatible synth looks and acid hall grind of Kareece Put Some Some Thread In A Zip Lock, and the mesh of Motor City sleekness with Far Eastern strings on Waterfalls In Ocho Rios, they distill and diversify their bonds in myriad ways across the album. There’s a killer dancehall/trap hybrid in the percolate chorales and man trills of Plantain Porridge, along with the secretive dub-into-dancehall transfusion of Addis Pablo’s melodica in the belly rolling Melodica Badness, while Ceremonial Eating Dog and the hyaline designs of We Miss You Little Joe - a tribute to their pal Alty Nunes - are arguably the most fwd Jamaican riddims you’ll hear in 2017, and Enter A Raffle... Win A Falafel uncannily recalls the clockwork mechanics of Haruomi Hosono’s Alternative 3, from his S-F-X [1984] LP. No matter what electronic box or boxes you subscribe to, Colón Man is a hugely inventive, compelling album for the ages, a remarkable iteration of Black Secret Technology for 2017 and far beyond.

Jedem guten Song wohnt etwas Individuelles inne, daran ändert das in der Musikgeschichte weit verbreitetePhänomen des Neu-Interpretierens von Vorhandenem nichts. Gerade in Jamaika ist es nach wie vor üblichePraxis, ein und denselben Hit von verschiedenen Interpreten zu hören. Ein Paradebeispiel dafür ist KenBoothes Aufnahme von "Speak Softly Love". Berühmt geworden ist das Stück als Soundtrack von FrancisFord Coppolas "The Godfathers", war aber vorher schon in 20 anderen Filmen zu hören, und die Melodie waraus einer Oper von Verdi "entliehen". Boothe nahm das Stück 1974 zum ersten Mal auf. Und mehr als 40Jahre später findet er bei der Neuaufnahme auf einer Terrasse wiederum einen neuen Zugang. Aber auchseine Songs lebten weiter, etwa in den Versionen seines größten Hits "Everything I Own" von Boy Georgeoder UB40. Bei der gewohnt akustischen "Inna De Yard"-Session unter freiem Himmel und mit vielen Gästenblickt der Sänger auf seine Karriere zurück, die er 1963 als 15-Jähriger begann. Boothe zeigt neben seinenWurzeln im Rocksteady und Raggae auch, wie ein Rastafari genauso ein großartiger Soulman undGospelsänger sein kann.

“All of a sudden, Jamaica awoke one morningand U-Roy was everywhere…”So read the original liner notes to this classic reggae LP, whichoriginally hit in 1971 and washed over the island like a groovingtropical storm.U-Roy was a true reggae pioneer, dubbed The Originator for goodreason. Bursting onto the Jamaican scene in the early 1970s, hepioneered the vocal approach called “toasting,” which in additionto bringing Jamaican music into a new era, was also heavily influentialon an American vocal style also in its infancy: rapping.This full-length, his first after a string of singles (mostly on theTreasure Isle and other Duke Reid labels, run by the famedproducer and studio owner), rolls like a crazy party where awobbly, but talented, “master of ceremonies” grabs the mic andwon’t let go. Speaking over and around songs that already havestraight-ahead vocals on them, U-Roy shows the world why he isconsidered an iconoclast and trailblazer.In all honesty, there are few standouts on the album since they allrun a similar course, and all are captivating in their own way.Modern listeners will especially note “Tide Is High,” originally bythe Paragons (featuring dulcet-toned vocalist John Holt) andrecorded later as a 1980 smash hit by Blondie.Each track here is a new adventure, and while U-Roy’s approachmight take some getting used to, it will eventually capture yourears as it did the entire island of Jamaica in the ‘60s and ‘70s. Sitback, drop the needle, and enjoy.
