Another offering of early 90s Roots this week, again with cross over from 90s digi and the sounds used in dancehall productions coming in. Again, all on 7”, with the versions included. Kicking off with the killer and one away Rastman Rampage, followed by heavy and deep relick of Slave driver (check the Early JA digi & 80s Roots vibes mix for the original cut). Then the more digi-style 'Tanna ya' from Mankind (heavy and conscious lyric on the rising trend of Jamaicans emigrating to US etc in the late 80s/early 90s), 'Time' from Qshan Dia and the 90s Roots anthem 'Prophecy Reveal' by Daweh Congo -a 90s masterpiece in my opinion. Then some riddim runs , the first on Spider Ranks feat Ginni Pepper & Roger Robin, the second on Feel the Beat feat Pinchers and J Radics, and the third on How you fi say dat (more known for its dancehall release) feat Malvo and Red Rose on a killer Hot milk relick. The outro is a lovely Admiral Tibet on Junkyard 7” on the terrors of road blocks in JA.
