Eternal Children

On their latest LP Eternal Children the pioneering Jamaican group Equiknoxx try something a little different. Usually each new Equiknoxx drop features a selection from the group’s five-strong membership, but this time all of the quintet (Shanique Marie, Bobby Blackbird, Gavsborg, Kemikal and the excellently-named Time Cow) have got involved in making the LP. Their massed ranks produce another potent record of future-forward bashment and dancehall that is unafraid to incorporate influences from hip-hop, pop and balladry. Swing Ting affiliate Fox is among the guests.

Bobby Blackbird
The Master Blenda

We very nearly didn’t get The Master Blenda, the first solo single from Equiknoxx mastermind Bobby Blackbird. Shortly after the tune's conception Blackbird was in a near-fatal car crash and spent months in hospital. He emerged more determined than ever to complete the track, one that turns away from Equiknoxx’s twisted dancehall style and heads towards a hotstepping ska sound. Turned out with a band that included several members of Raging Fyah, ‘The Master Blenda’ is a triumph in every sense of the word. Exile The Brave and Blackbird’s Equiknoxx buddy Time Cow dub it out on the B-side.

Fly Away / Fly Alway Dub

Ever-ascending dancehall crew Equiknoxx have released two incredible records on the DDS label recently, along with an immense single for the Manchester-based Swing Ting. This 7" offers "Fly Away" and its dub sibling, hopefully quenching the thirst of those who caught the track on their beloved Fader mix.

Colón Man

The sheer level of inventiveness on this record is almost too much to think about in any capacity, let alone a description this short. Suffice to say, those looking to explore an approach to modern electronic street music with a playful and abstract Jamaican twist should look here. You should look here now.

Equiknoxx & Mark Ernestus
Mark Ernestus Remixes

Mark Ernestus - Basic Channel/Rhythm & Sound member as well as owner of Berlin’s Hardwax - takes on remix duties for one of the techiest duos in dancehall. One might have expected this two-track to be harder than it is, but Ernestus instead flips the Equiknoxx sound on its head to pleasant effect. The duo’s trademark tropes are repurposed to new effect - check how the thick string stabs of ‘Congo Get Slap’ are turned into a classic dub techno chord.
