here comes another nasty piece of heavyweight funky soul out of detroit. this tune certainly appeals to both northern soul as well as funk 45 collectors, especially the open drum break on the flip is a monster.
crafted in the style of old school dancehall clashing, “veteran” is a mixture of classic heavyweight dancehall lyrics and a new school flow. the tune is set to be a timeless banger aiming to keep the dancehall massive rocking and swinging day and night. inspired by the riddim and sounds of blind prophet, clinton sly is ready to run the sound system! slowing down the tempo to 120bpm, blind prophet delivers a heavy dose of dubwise for the b-side. “hugh dub” starts off with a mutated vocal and quickly drops into a tuff steppers riddim. a distorted bassline and thumping kick drive the track. accompanied by plucked guitars, organ skanks and dub fx it’s a sound system stomper for sure!
sly dunbar and robbie shakespeare are simply known all around the world as sly and robbie. they were the musical drum and bass backbone of reggae since the early 1970’s. they have played on more records than any other set of musicians and to such a high standard that few could reach. the third part of the jigsaw is the mighty bunny striker lee who brought these legends together. these rare dubs are taken from the original master tapes. you may have heard the tunes before, but never these versions. so sit back and enjoy reggae musical history in the making...
grand ancestor and the illuminated join forces again, this time teaming up with distant roots and clinton sly in order to bring you *straight to mi brain*, the latest 7 inch record from ga. clintons energetic and powerful presence on the a side is further interpreted on the b, with the illuminated and distant roots collaborating on the dubwise version. this is a limited 7 inch pressing, hand stamped, with no repress or digital offering.
following almost two years of driving bass music promotion, in the form of compilation albums, free download round-ups, reviews, guest mixes & mix series cds, the time has come to transcend from what first began as an online blog into our very own music label. after working with renowned artists such as el-b, quest, bunzer0 and phaeleh, as well as fellow promotional platforms fatkidonfire & deeper vibrations - the albion community has developed and grown to become recognised across the board of the bass music spectrum. this extension of our brand will help in pushing this music even more, enabling us to curate a fundamentally diverse sound beside the culture that we so passionately enjoy. the launch of albion collective recordings is to be set in motion with in pieces, a collaborative down-tempo effort conceived between vaun and jafu which is radiant in textural soundscapes. this particular piece has been doing the rounds as a clip on deeper vibrations youtube channel since 2013, inducing longing excitement for the song to finally surface.
