Review: Appearing originally on the Solid Groove label out of Croydon in South London, 'Exclusively' is sometimes misconstrued as the UK issue of 'Dance Hall Style'. The tracks from both were recorded at the same sessions - with Bullwackies joined at the controls by Junior Delahaye and Prince Douglas and issued close together in 1982-83. Half of 'Exclusively' non-exclusively versions four tracks from the Stateside release - three are re-titled - and also 'Eating Mess', which appeared on the first pressing of 'Dance Hall Style', though unlisted on the sleeve. The mixes are all different (and without dubs). Five further specials include the funky 'Musical Episode', a superior Bob Marley tribute, and a version of 'Rougher Yet'. It's all vintage Wackies, and spun out of Horace's all-time greatest album - unmissable.

Child Of Slave
Cat: DKR 226. Rel: 15 Apr 21
Roots/Lovers Rock
  1. Child Of Slave (6:02)
  2. I Love You (6:07)
Review: The latest club-ready 12" from the Wackie's imprint brings together two more killer cuts from the vaults of legendary producer Lloyd 'Bullwackie' Barnes - both of which feature long-serving vocal group the Chosen Brothers. On the A-side you'll find the full extended mix of 1979 single 'Child In Slave', a haunting and heavy number in which the Chosen Brothers' reverb-laden vocals seemingly drift above a decidedly dubby rhythm track rich in delay-laden instrumentation and deep bass. Over on the flip there's a chance to savour both the original and alternate 'version' mixes of 'I Love You', a later lovers rock number with definite dub leanings that's as sweet and glassy-eyed as they come.

Sunshine Love

Roots/Lovers Rock
  1. Sunshine Love (9:20)
  2. Keep A Rocking (4:02)
  3. Get Over (4:13)
Review: The original 1981 12" of Itopia's 'Sunshine Love' is one of the most sought-after cuts in the Wackie's catalogue, with copies regularly changing hands for three-figure sums online. This 12" includes the two key cuts from that 12", the synth-sporting, electrofunk-era vocal reggae gem original mix of 'Sunshine Love' - all super-sweet group vocals, hybrid live/electronic grooves and colourful electronics - and the dub style 'Version', which boasts some seriously squelchy synth-bass. Over on the flip there's a chance to cop Itopia's upbeat 1984 reggae club-rocker, the similarly synth-splashed 'Keep a Rockin', plus one of the original 'Sunshine Love' flipsides, the NYC synth-skank that is 'Get Over'. In a word: essential.
