8/10 Jim Staff review, 08 January 2015

Here’s a joyous compilation of some of the most eccentric dancehall productions you’re ever likely to hear. Duppy Gun Productions came about as an unintended consequence of Cameron Stallones (Sun Araw) and M. Geddes Gengras’ trip to Portmore, Jamaica to collaborate with the legendary roots reggae group The Congos. Immersing themselves into the almost monastic, communal lifestyle of their Rastafarian hosts, the US producers soon found themselves inundated with offers from a constant stream of local vocalists ready to toast over their weirdest dub concoctions.

And this LP perfectly captures the fertile spontaneity of these collaborations-- utilizing tuff rhythms and psychoactive textures from a pool of dub inspired underground US artists like Peaking Lights, Matthewdavid, D/P/I, San Gabriel to showcase the ever ready vocal talents of Jamaican vocalists like I Jahbar, Early One, Fyah Flames, and Boofka. In the time-honoured tradition of dancehall, the producers have adopted obscure monikers to let the vocalists take centre stage in a relentless series of intense performances just brimming with infectious energy.

Highlights include Fyah Flames’ “What Would You Say About Me?” with its swirling ambient atmospherics, ecstatic soul vocals, hardcore echoes and unfathomably deep bass drops recalling the head-spinning highs of early Jungle; then there’s “Tek 9” with its stark rhythm and sharp guitar and bass runs cutting in and out, leaving the occasional saturated delay trails for Lukan I’s rich harmonies to ride on; and finally there’s the spaced-out electronic Nyabinghi adorned with Dayone’s wildly modulated devotional stream of consciousness of “Rasta Life”, sounding like a feverishly improvised Rhythm & Sound cut.
