Zenzile - Electric Soul (Yotanka) 2012

Sharp guitar skank, feline bass line. From Scars, the opening piece, the tone is set. After two albums (monochrome in Living and Pawn Shop) where he explored, in his own way, the rock of her adolescence, the angevin group returned to fundamental dub. While affirming its ability to renew itself. First surprise: all tracks are sung. And not just by the faithful Jamika, whose throaty, sensual voice comes out of the Grace Jones register where she was locked. The new recruit, Jay Ree, brings his wide vocal range (vibrato way Horace Andy, hard-hitting hip-hop flow, soul crooning...) of new colors. And when the two are put together, it gives Stay, a kind of Tainted Love bass riff and the chorus eye-catching that could bring to Zenzile wider notoriety he deserves. Finally, his stamp frayed, Winston McAnuff made the sweaty Magic Number one of the peaks of the disk. Musically, Zenzile relies on a reggae-dub base fully mastered to project itself towards new horizons. Electro touches (Yuri's become and passed to the Vocoder voice); a blues-soul nod to Hendrix (Man Made Machine) ; a wonderful Odyssey of more than eight minutes (Over/Time, fragrance of Riders on the storm) where the voice of Jamika, clarinet, Rhodes piano and a flight of stratospheric guitar vie intensity... Zenzile operates on Electric Soul a back to the future bright.

Vibration Lab Feat. Linval Thompson – Tribulation Time EP (2012)

Vibration Lab have been on an amazing journey, a true labour of love. It all started back, last summer when we played at the One Love Festival in the U.K. We found out that one of our all-time heroes Linval Thompson (The voice behind such hits as: ” I Love Marijuana” “Don’t Cut Off Your Dreadlocks” “Jah Jah The Conqueror” “Dreader Than Dread” ”Ride On Dreadlocks” “Mr. Bossman” and too may more to mention) was going to be playing as well. By chance, we bumped into him back stage and talked of a collaboration. The next Monday we met him to voice on one of our tracks at the famous Stingray Studio in London. On the walls of the studio were photos of visits from the likes of Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs, Freddie Mcgregor and nearly every other important figure in Reggae music for the past 20 years. Working with Linval was an honour and he was a very humble and gracious person who hasn’t seemed to age much over the years. His voice is as strong as it ever was and we recorded two songs that day. It was a great experience for us. When it came time to figure out who we wanted to remix this project two names came to mind. First, RSD aka Rob Smith aka Smith & Mighty, who was an original inspiration for our sound and whose records like “Kingfisher” “Forward Youth” and “Jah Way” showed us the possibilities. The other was an artist named Radikal Guru, who was also an early influence for Vibration Lab with tracks like “Rudeboy Skank/Kingston Town” and “Strong Dub”. We really felt blessed when they both agreed to do it and the results blew our mind! The significant thing about this project is that all the mixes have their own unique sound and all our outstanding! Next we found two Dub Stars of the future, Riddim Tuffa who have been blazing up the the scene with their special Digi-Dub style and fashion and the incredible Adam Prescott who has been remixing the likes of Mungos Hi-Fi and making dubs with Brother Culture and Daddy Freddy.

Wrongtom Meets Deemas J - In East London (TRUCD260) 2012

Following his hugely successful Roots Manuva re-rub album ‘Duppy Writer’ (Big Dada), sought-after producer/DJ Wrongtom had the urge to make something original, whilst maintaining that nod to vintage dub and dancehall, and he knew that long-time friend, occasional collaborator, legendary livewire and stalwart jungle MC Deemas J was the go-to man. The result is this essential reggae, dancehall and dub fuelled LP, with a deep, fresh and bouncing vibe rooted in East London that pays homage to the culture and sound that first got them both hooked back in the ‘80s.

the famous battle of the valley of Adoua (1896). On the same riddim Ras Teo (USA) sing Work
 reminding that any work for a Rastafarian is above all in honour of Jah!
The hope for the youth with the title Noble Youth, ridiculing the effects of fashion

The Mister X (EMS Studio) ; they are declined in Dub and Stepper versions with
the collaborations of Mad Professor (UK) on Mad Provider and Franck Gonthier

Thank you!!

Roots Art starts with a great rootsy dub on the A side by Righteous Dub and then evolves gradually into deep electronic Cumbia by the end of the B side. Both versions of the track feature bass and melodica work by John (Righteous Dub) and piano, guitar, and dub engineering work from Matt (Piper Street Sound). The phenomenal guitarist from DubConscious James Keane provides his jazz meets pyschedelia sound for this tune as well, his playing sitting like icing on cake made of solid roots riddims.
