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.
