Roots & Dancehall Edition
New releases galore!
Yes folks... seems we're in for another new-release round-up. Check out what we have in store for you this time... just hot off the press:
YAHADANAI - ONE ATONEMENT
Fresh talent Yahadanai, originally hailing from Guyana, delivers an excellent debut for the label that is synonimous for quality in Reggae-music: I Grade Records!
DUBBLESTANDART - HEAVY HEAVY MONSTER DUB
Oh yes, well-known artists from this very town & country - Vienna, Austria! Although the title of this album might be a bit misleading, Dubblestandart proof once again their international level.
LINVAL THOMPSON - WHIP THEM KING TUBBY
Great re-release from the brandnew Auralux-label. If you're into the deep vibes of truly classic tunes mixed by the man called King Tubby - this is a treat for you!
SAM RAGGA BAND - THE SOUND OF SAM RAGGA
Second release from the german band, featuring singer Nena on one track... and yes - it's a good tune, believe it or not. Or even better: Check it out right here on Ackee & Saltfish.
LADY SAW - STRIP TEASE
Do we recall how often this release has been postponed? Nah... who cares anyway, now that we have it in hands, ready to spin it for you. Wicked Dancehall-tunes for sure!
NOSLIW - WIE WEIT
Brand new single from the up & coming artist on the "Crystall Woman"-riddim. And that's just the precursor of Nosliw's long-awaited debut album... soon come!
SIZZLA - STAY FOCUS
When exactly did we stop counting all those Sizzla-releases? They just keep on flocking in! Here's a good one again, produced by the mighty Fatis of the Xterminator-camp. Quality production guaranteed, seen?
SEEED - MUSIC MONKS (International Version)
That's not a new release, you say? You dead wrong, because this is the international version of the well-known album from the mighty Seeed! Reason enough to re-visit this masterpiece made in Germany, featuring an all-englisch version of "Waterpumpee"...
