Every Day You're Wondering
  1. Johnny Clarke - "Every Day You're Wondering" (3:27)
  2. Mr Bojangles - "Ten Dread Commandments" (3:38)
Review: Kingston artist Johnny Clarke was at one time of the country's most exciting new singers. Part of that is because he had a big range that took in both gentle lovers rock and more heavy dread tunes. This time out we're treated to a slice of the former on a new 7" from Success. 'Every Day You're Wondering' is brilliantly airy, carefree and sun kissed with its rumbling drums and island guitars encouraging you to get horizontal. On the flip is Mr Bojangles with his cavernous 'Ten Dread Commandments' featuring some final vocal work.

Shine Your Light On Me
  1. Shine Your Light On Me (3:04)
  2. Cosmic Shuffling - "Merry-Go-Round" (2:53)
Review: The Liquidator Music crew have been putting out classic Jamaican rhythms ice the mid-cities and still goes strong. This is an all new one from Jamaican act Roy Ellis who sings over his backing band, Cosmic Shuffing, from Switzerland. They are acclaimed in ska and rock steady circles for good reason and help bring these tunes to life. 'Shine Your Light On Me' is an easy going roller with lo-fi drums and dusty riffs that hook you in while Ellis does his work up top. 'Merry-Go-Round' then cuts loose on a summery and swirling vibe with conversational lead trumpets and natty chords.

African Shores
  1. Vin Gordon - "African Shores" (3:55)
  2. Nat Birchall meets Al Breadwinner - "Gold Coast Dub" (3:57)
Review: Legendary trombonist Vin Gordon recorded the album from which the title tune here is taken at the Bakery Studio Manchester. It was recorded and mixed using tape and analogue equipment which lend it that authentic frayed edged and earthy feel. The original title track 'African Shores' is featured with its snaking trombone leads and hissing hi hats, and on the flip trumpet master Nat Birchall steps up with Al Breadwinner for a Gold Coast dub. It is slow, fat bottomed and filled with great studio effects that warp the mind.

  1. Hot Rock (6:07)
  2. Hot Rock (Rock-apella) (3:39)
  3. Hot Rock (dub version) (6:38)
Review: Pennsylvanian based roots reggae band House Of Assembly dropped their last ever single in 1988 and this is it. The band was formed din Kingston, Jamaican and made up of Norman Bailey, Marc Campbell, Claver Campbell and Louis Putman, all of whom bonded over a love of dub and reggae before moving to the US. They made one album in the 80s became well known on the local scene. This single is one of their most well loved tunes with its stuttering rhythm and crashing hits as well as hints of 80s disco production. The rock-apella and dub version take it in great new directions, too.

Cat: SH 009. Rel: 23 May 22
  1. Joe Yorke & Stand High Patrol - "Midnight Rock" (3:11)
  2. Stand High Patrol - "Midnight Stories" (3:09)
Review: An exquisitely weird and gorgeous dub 7" from Stand High, the new imprint from the notorious soundsystem's now relentless assembly line. Following up 2021's 'Quicksand', 'Midnight Rock' hears the producer and crooner Joe Yorke glide over a sticky, weighty beat in his trademark falsetto tone. He hits every note seamlessly, despite the difficulty of holding one's own in such a register. Meanwhile, Pupajim's deejay style 'Midnight Stories' lurks angstily on the reply-like B. A combative and defiant new steppers' EP.

  1. Peter Metro - "Dancing Spirit" (5:43)
  2. Peter Metro - "Dancing Spirit" (dub) (5:13)
  3. Daddy Culture - "Give Them Style" (5:02)
Review: Tuff Scout come through with some crucial riddims here from Peter Mereo and Daddy Culture. Metro goes first with his particularly natty 'Dancing Spirit', the intense vocal work never letting up over the suspenseful chords that drop in from great height. A dub version pairs things back to the heavy weight drums and bass. On the flip is 'Give Them Style', a digi-dub stepper with shiny synths bringing electric feels to the plucked acoustic guitar and lumpy drum work. All three tunes are primed and ready for sound system deployment this summer and beyond.

Review: Originally released in 1986 on the LA based label Majicaa Records, here comes a much warranted official reissue and remaster of Shakeena's super good bubblegum lovers rock jam 'I Bet You'. Shakaman was a reggae master dummer who shows off his stick skills here on a searing groove that is fleshy and warm. The vocal is a sunny, aching one that brings the soul and is sure to dissipate any bad vibes on your day. Flip it over for the stylish dub version for a different kind of ride.

  3. Selekta (remix) (4:21)
  4. Wicked Man (dub version) (4:34)
Review: Barcelona based label La Panchita has been turning out silky dub sounds since 2015. This time out they offer a fresh, digital-edged package from Tribase with clean synths and steely drums. 'Wicked Man' is a heavy and off-kilter one with mystic leads. 'Selekta' gets a little more dark and heavy, with drilling bass nocturnal synths while the remix takes on an even more metropolitan edge and sense of urban menace. Last of all is 'Wicked Man' (dub version) to offer something airy and heady.

  10. Edgy Business (3:39)
Review: Vaughn Benjamin offered up a superbly raw and stripped back sound here with this hard to define album. It is one he honed over more than a few decades with the St. Croix based band Midnite and countless recordings such as the 2014 album of the year Beauty For Ashes. Sadly, he passed in 2019 but had already put out an incredible 70 albums by then, and this one with its rich musicianship, deep moods and textured songwriting is right up there with the best of them. It has an unwavering devotion to Rastafarai and the soulful melodies surely heal.

Review: One of many Studio One-affiliated releases to crop up as of late, Dadawah's 'Peace And Love / Wadadasow' is a rarity few heads can claim to know. A side alias of practising Rastafarian and musician Ras Michael (Michael George Henry), Dadawah ended up his magnum opus despite original intent as a lower-key piece. This one's made up of a weird and wonderful cross-section of styles: wah guitar, plodding bass and the rhythmic chants of his religious music influence of choice, the Nyabhinghi - Rastafarian devotional music combining African drumming and gospel. A classic, reissued whirlwind of laid-back joy.

Review: Frightnrs are considered one of Daptone's best artists but they have put out any new music since 201 after the tragic passing from ALS of the front man, Dan Klein. That wrong is righted here with Always, a new posthumous long player that comes on black wax as well as a coloured version. As fans would expect, it is a raw and soulful offering from the Queens-based reggae outfit that has been built around vocal stems that Klein recorded before his death. It forms a fitting final album from this outfit who also did more than reggae revivalism by adding elements of Motown, doo-wop, Blues and gospel.

Review: This latest Global Beats album has been produced by Mafia and Fluxy and is packed with cuts chosen according to their relevance and ongoing ability to get any dance floor going. Of course, each of the cuts is timeless indeed but they also come with nice profound messages in the lyric as well s devastating gores in the rhythm section. All the lines between old school and new school sounds are blurred and dub mixes of each track help boost the package even further. A characterful collection for sure that touches on everything from police harassment to convict's laments.
