Big Tunes w Undercover

Been a while, work, life. Big tunes drop here we go....
We start (and end) with Dionne Reid, a killer cross-over UK artist (Barrington Levy cover, Tuff Scout single) that rides the riddim since 19-long-time. Up next is some killer BB Seaton produced relick biz from his OG Soul Beat catalogue with Funny Feeling, featuring Lady Lex, Dennis Alcapone and some R&B stylez from....Chris Stylez. lol. Jah 9 (seriously yawn, pass me the has a few killers amongst the yoga tunes off her VP album, but for me it's the freestylez from her pre-album EP drop the 9mm where she rides some serious 70/80s roots riddims that does it for me. Next up is the Jammys - New Sounds of Freedom, which to be perfectly honest is a little hum hah over the mixing on this. Legendary riddims yes, A grade vocalists yes, but seriously, I can splice a tune like that on my mixer! What's up? Am I being too harsh? Included anyway. Compare that to the Stephen Marley album - all killer. Pushing boundries production wise as all Tuff Gong biz does and some tight hip hop/reggae vocal combos.
Riddim wise we have Overstand's Mile High Riddim featuring killer cuts form Jesse Royal, Morgan Heritage and Bushman. Through Thoughts (hip hop, latin, beats label) drop an solid one-drop riddim and Idlers Corner drop the Chatty Chatty Mouth riddim both featuring both underground and overground UK vocalists. The old guard Shaggy, Rayvon, Screechy Dan, Red Fox and Assassin spit on perhaps the biggest riddim of the all - Sitara riddim. And as I mentioned, Dionne Reid rounds it up with some soundcheck mixes of Bam Bam and Ring Di Alarm.

Scientist Mixes and their Vocals Part 5 w/ Undercover

Perhaps one if not the most iconic dub albums of all time, Scientist Rids the World of the Evil Curse of the Vampires captures perfectly the last of the Channel One sound before digital swept the nation. In 1980/1981 (the year of my birth) the Roots Radics were as militant yet sweet as ever. Songs taken from The Wailing Souls, Michael Prophet and Johnny Osbourne albums (all with Scientist on the mixing desk) where twisted and tweaked by the dub extraordinaire Scientist at the controls yet again. Howls, screams and cackles ensue. Link.

The similarities to this Keith Hudson photo and the one below is pretty uncanny.

Running tings outta Kingston with Joachim Maquet

I came by these photos by Joachim Maquet outta Paris, it really catches a dope vibe. These guys are it - they are running 'tings, they got style, playing a new sound, all while smoking trees. All photography Joachim Maquet. #alleyesonit

The Authentic Sounds of Now w/ Undercover

This one is about those authentic reggae sounds of now (with a few favourite jams thrown in). Not so much the Jamaican revival renaissance or the genuine Peckings sound, but fresh harmonious soul rocksteady from the UK and the States. Starting with Jr Thomas and the Volcanos (Truth and Soul) where you could close your eyes and think it's straight from a 1968 Beverley's recording. Or the 70/80s analogue roots reggae sound of The Frightners (Mad Decent), The Aggrolites, The Expanders or The Reasonators. Soul singers Liam Bailey, (Truth and Soul) Sharon Jones (Daptone) and Hollie Cook (Mr Bongo) over cracking reggae tunes. To rub-a-dub do-overs from The Dap Kings, Prince Fatty, Ticklah, Beverley All-stars. And the summer sounds of DJ Vadim, Fat Freddys, mashing up the reggae sound for a long time now, seom old, some new. Whatever styles, their vibe all is excellent and their craft is on point.
