8BIT DUB / DIGIDUB with DISRUPT

April 5, 2009

the-bass-has-left-the-buildingI like how this cut somehow feels rootsy, while being a totally digital 8bit gameboy/atari, nooo… JAHTARI thang. This is DISRUPT and his entire album THE BASS HAS LEFT THE BUILDING is like this. Cop it if you dig it! I surely will!

DISRUPT – ITS MORE FUN TO DUBPUTE


IGZIABEHER, let JAH be praised!

March 25, 2009

peter-toshMaybe it’s me and i’m just full of it (…), but I always looked upon PETER TOSH as Bob’s younger, less talented brother (let go of reality for a minute). Most of his stuff sounds a bit, well.. almost commercial? Of course it’s all political and meaningful, but the sound of the records, sounds close to reggae ‘light’ for me… But this track is one of my favorites, great rastafari lyrics and the mid section with the soundeffects, damn, just play that in a car real loud when it’s raining outside and you’re hazed up!

PETER TOSH – IGZIABEHER (let jah be praised)


DANCEHALL gettin’ too WEIRD?

March 19, 2009

dancehallhotlargeI think so, whatever happened to bad men on the mic with bad men lyrics and sparse, cold drummachine riddims underneath? nowadays, everyone is using the kanye west vocoder singing, 808/crunky/bouncy beats, big sounding synths, hiphop production and modern pop influences. MY BOYS – KEEP IT RAW, please?
