Ras Michael & The Sons Of Negus
Promised Land Sounds

Ras Michael made true Rastafari reggae with his Sons of Negus group. Promised Land Sounds is so ecstatic in its approach and so dub-tweaked in its production that listening can really transport the listener somewhere else altogether: it’s nigh-on psychadelic. Recorded in the Black Ark in 1980, rei...view item »

Augustus Pablo
The Sun

Seems to be that this is the first time that Augustus Pablo’s real funky tune The Sun has been commercially available: up till now it has circulated only as a dubplate. But now this 10” vinyl release is here, along with a couple of highly-desirable alternate versions. Yum yum yum. 10” vinyl pressing on...view item »

Mabrak
Drum Talk

Mabrak were a 70’s Jamaican drumming crew, in which talking drums led the way, supported by funky basslines and subtly snaking guitar. Drum Talk, mixed with a pinch of dub by King Tubby, was first released in 1976, and stands up now as a wonderful percussive ride. Reissue contains an insert with a...view item »

Dennis Creary
Ghetto Life

Reissue of a killer reggae 7” from 1989, featuring the vocals and songwriting talents of Dennis Creary over a heavyweight digital-dub groove. The beat is lively and driven, matching the intensity of this classic song’s lyric. Ghetto Life has been re-pressed to its natural 7” format by the Dug Out label...view item »

Gregory Isaacs
Temporary Lover

Reissue of a powerful reggae 12” from 1997, featuring the rich and soulful vocals of Gregory Isaacs. Temporary Lover is presented in the form of two extended vocal versions and two dubbed-out versions. There is a 90’s-flavoured digital sheen to the sound, but the skanking vibe is still central. 12” rei...view item »

Ras Michael & The Sons Of Negus
Numbered Days

Ras Michael made true Rastafari roots reggae with his Sons of Negus group. The Numbered Days single draws on soul and electric reggae, but also makes great use of the Nyabinghi rhythmic meditation tradition for maximum spirituality. The results are ecstatic. Plus a super-strength dread dub on the B-side...view item »

Genesis
Drum Talk

Genesis (not the Phil Collins one by the way) Mabrak were a 70’s Jamaican drumming crew, in which talking drums led the way, supported by funky basslines and subtly snaking guitar. The later changed their name to Mabrak for their album Drum Talk, from which this s...view item »

King Kong
He Was A Friend

‘He Was A Friend’ was first recorded by dub legend King Kong in 1989 as a tribute following the death of prominent 1980’s dancehall singer Tenor Saw who died in 1988. King Kong shares a similar vocal style to Tenor Saw and the track has a sombre but nervous rhythm with a driv...view item »

Naphtali
Hole Up Your Hand

Naphtali in the late '80s, dropping the classic East London rude-boy minimalist dub that has built his reputation as the rudest of boys and dubbest of basses. Produced with the help of no one less than Blacka and Jah Warrior, this is a 10” that needs to have it home among your dub essentials. Sya!...view item »

Michael Rose
Observe Life

Norman Records really going all out with these bass-heavy funk releases these days, here’s Michael Rose’s Observe Life with an interesting and inspirational message, if you can still think beyond the cowbell of course. To finish it off, there’s Ari Up dropping the Observing Dub...view item »

Anthony Red Rose
Electric Chair

Phenomenal reggae rarity repressed by Dug Out, the label run by Mark Ernestus of Basic Channel. The involvement of these guys guarantees Electric Chair as an obscure gem of digi-dancehall from the golden age of soundsystem culture. The nervous synths and impassioned vocals from Anthony Red Rose confirm that reputation on this 7&...view item »

Little John & Billy Boyo
What You Want To Be (Disc Jockey)

Some crucial advice from Little John & Billy Boyo. What You Want To Be (Disc Jockey) is getting the repress treatment this time. This is 3 cuts of deeply grooving roots, with effortless toasting from the MC's, an outrageously tight rhythm section aided by plenty of dubbed out production wizardry - str...view item »

Nitty Gritty
General Penitentiary

A very close old friend first introduced me to Nitty Gritty some ten years or so ago and more recently I've been buzzing off the photographs of him in Beth Lesser's brilliant 'Dancehall' book that came out through Soul Jazz. This LP is new to my ears and totally is the perfect tonic to the grim reality of planet earth and its inhabitant's traged...view item »

Jah Warrior
Dub From The Heart

Get your dancing shoes on as this ones a knee loosener from Jah Warrior. Dub From The Heart is getting its near two decade repress.

Tiger (dancehall artist)
Rap Pon Rydim

This has just reminded me of Daddy Freddy doing the worlds fastest rapping one time on Record Breakers with Roy Walker and Sheryl Baker grinning away. You just can’t imagine a moment like that ever happening again on television.  So anyway it's great to see Dug Out are still on a mission. They'd go...view item »

Sugar Minott
Sheriff John Brown

The loss of this Reggae legend last summer through heart disease was felt across the reggae community, a man that contributed so much and will be sadly missed.... Super nice though to have some reissues of material from his Black Victory imprint. One of a zillion labels that released a handful of records in the mid-eighties and faded into obscur...view item »
