9/10 Ant Staff review, 28 July 2016
Jon K and Demdike Stare have curated and compiled a badass compilation of old and new tracks from Jamaica’s Equiknoxx collective. Twelve cuts strong of rump shakin’ dancehall beats and “computerize riddims” it really displays how dancehall has evolved into the 21st Century.
Produced by core members Gavsborg and Time Cow, alongside Bobby Blackbird and Kofi Knoxx, plus occasional vocals from Kemikal, Shanique Marie and J.O.E. (R.I.P). These tracks are begging to be cranked up and blaring out of towering soundsystems either out in the summer sunshine or in dark smoke filled basements. This is fresh electronic music that works within, and mutates the foundations of the sounds roots in 80’s King Jammy productions.
Hat’s off to DDS and company for bringing this crew to a wider audience. Great fun!
