Charles le Brigand - Dubbing the Dragon

Charles le Brigand - Dubbing the Dragon

Playing tracks by

The Upsetters, Lloyd Parks, Noiseshaper feat. Carl Douglas, Linton Haughton , Augustus Pablo and more.

With this selection I wanted to highlight the underlying similarities as they relate to Shaolin and Rastafarian spirituality. Beyond ineluctable Kung-Fu inspired reggae tunes featuring gong crashes, Chinese musical scales and Bruce Lee flick’s quotes & sound effects, I have also chosen mystical tracks reflecting a mood of deep spirituality and militancy.

Through a diversity of Jamaican forms and styles – from early dubs to rare roots and obscure chants over crashing dubs - this set features heavy bass-lines (and I do mean heavy), razor-sharp snare work as well as piercing horns patterns and emotionally charged sufferer's vocal styles. Pure deadliness - straight outta the temple.

thanks guys for tuning-in.
DJSKAROB: you are right, reggae and kung-fu is nothing new and the link that you shared is just another example of how Jamaicans deejays and producers loved and embraced great fighters...from Bruce Lee to M. Ali, G. Foreman etc...
Looking at the tunes on that link, I am actually glad that I was able to assemble a kung-fu inspired mix with so little tracks from that extensive compilation! As described, I went with obvious KungFu themes to more obscure tunes that had the same fighting/militancy vibe.
