Album Of The Week – Watch How The People Dancing (Unity Sounds From The London Dancehall)

Got a huge amount of time for this at the moment, whoever does the A&R @ Honest Jon’s label is certainly doing their homework. Straight up Killa Casio inspired Riddims that sound as current today as it did back then.

Album Of The Week – Mungo’s Hi-Fi – Forward Ever

You should all know Mungo’s by now in all fairness and although this is relatively old I noticed that it has been nominated for the Scottish Album Of The Year Award .This LP cemented their sound firmly on the map and it’s TUFF Roots music made for the Soundsystem. I remember getting a promo copy off the lads @ Outlook Festival last year and it’s still on repeat….

The lovely people at the Scottish Album Of The Year award have kindly uploaded the album for you to listen to for free! Click HERE to listen! And for those of you that haven’t already purchased it check the Scotch Bonnet Shop…..

Also while you are at it check Mungo’s remix they did for us featuring the legendary Earl 16………..click HERE.

This one’s Killaaaaaaaa and a must in any dance featuring Southend’s finest Charlie P.

Album Of The Week – Kanka – Alert

Kanka ya BAD!

I first heard Kanka when I checked Subdub back in 2009 and I was hooked. Hailing from France he has become the go-to producer for hard hitting, innovative and sometimes outright bonkers steppas.

This LP from 2006 is probably my favourite one he’s made, however,  I think his body of work as a whole represents modern day Soundsystem vibes at their best.

Album Of The Week – Cultural Roots – Drift Away From Evil

Album of the Week time again here with one of my favourite vocal groups from the late 70’s – early 80’s, Cultural Roots. A real fine LP, proper ruff & tuff Roots music and it’s not hard to see why when you find out that The Revolutionaries (Channel One’s in house band) are responsible for the all the riddims. For more info click here……

In all honesty it’s worth getting the LP just for the infamous Jah Shaka favourite ‘Mr Bossman’. ANTHEM STYLE
