Shining Dub & Shut Up Dub
Shining Dub & Shut Up Dub (180 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: BSR 1202. Rel: 30 Nov 23
Shining Dub (3:59)
Shut Up Dub (5:21)
Review: The last album the mighty Lee Scratch Perry recorded before he died was Heaven, freshly released on Burning Sounds and leaving us with a lasting memory of his indelible influence on modern music. To accompany the full-length, the label have picked the versions of two album tracks and given them an airing on a standalone 12", cut nice and loud for the dance. 'Shining Dub' takes up the A side, and 'Shut Up Dub' takes the flip, and both dive deep into the echo chamber style Perry himself helped pioneer so many decades prior.

Baby Come Back (Mato Mellow Reggae mix) (4:16)
Baby Come Back (Mato dub version) (4:16)
Review: Stix Records, a sub-label of Favorite Recordings, presents the second release from its new Mellow Reggae Series project. Launched earlier this year by Mato & Ethel Lindsey, with a stunning cover of the famous 'What You Won't Do For Love' by Bobby Caldwell, the series continues with the same duo, now taking over 'Baby Come Back', the underground AOR/Blue-Eyed-Soul classic from The Player. Like he always does, Mato delivers an outstanding version, delighting us with his matchless skills for dub production. Already matching on Bobby Caldwell's rendition, Ethel Lindsey ensures yet again the perfect vocals over Mato's production.

The Ethiopians - "Obeah Book" (2:56)
Observer - "Back Weh" (3:24)
Review: The Ethiopians were a big part of the 70s roots and reggae scene. Their catalogue has been pillaged here by the always-on-point Belgian label Roots Vibration, and they have come up with their 'Obeah Book' tune for reissue on this 45rpm. It was produced by Niney The Observer and is a deep steady and rolling rhythm that has some nice and playful piano up top, but the icing on the cake is the heartfelt vocals. On the back, Observer goes it alone with 'Back Weh', a nice head-twisting dub.

Sweet Sensation (6:32)
Sweet Dub (4:16)
Review: Isle Of Jura always deals in left-of-centre sounds from the vast dub universe. This drop from Sonia Whittingham originally came back in 1988 and is a real clean lovers rock gem. Because of that, it's a much sought-after 12" that is often listed for over 100 quid on second-hand sites. This reissue allows you to swerve all that and as well as the original, with its sweet-as-you-like vocal and clean digital synths. Flip it over for the Love Dub Band's more heady and stoner-style 'Sweet Dub.'

Jackie - "Who Can I Run To?"
Earth & Stone - "That's The Way You Feel"
Review: This is a reissue of two rare tracks from the late 70s UK reggae scene which originally surfaced on the Cha Cha Records roster, which launched in the late 1970s. This one first came in 1980: on the A-side, Jackie delivers a tuff lovers rock version of The Jones Girls' 'Who Can I Run To', released just a year earlier in 1979, recontextualizing the song by way of a more propulsive rhythm and higher tempo. On the B comes Earth & Stone, who present their classic roots cut 'That's The Way You Feel'.

Gates Of Zion
Cat: YU 703. Rel: 21 Nov 23
Gates Of Zion (4:20)
Gates Of Zion (dub Gates mix) (4:14)
Review: The 'Gates Of Zion (Dub)' is a time-honoured fixture of the catalogue of Yabby You (real name Vivian Neville Jackson), the reggae vocalist and producer whose largely autodidactic and self-released work lent him a special credo during dub's 1970s heyday. With the original first appearing as a collaboration with Scientist and Michael Prophet on the album At The Dub Station in 1981, under the name 'Free Up Your Heart', the versions featured here on this imprint is far colder and less forgiving, skilfully working in snake-rattly curios and percussive oddities into a backbeat that effortlessly complements You's ghostly vocal delivery. Not one to be missed, 'Gates Of Zion' truly produces the feeling of approaching utopia's vine-leaved entrance; you, too, might get a pass, provided you add this one to your collection.

Review: Dub innovator, celebrated smoker of the herb and much-loved nutter Lee Scratch Perry has been gone a while now but his musical legacy will never fade. Partly, of course, because he made so damn much of it during a prolific career, most of it at his own iconic Black Arc studios. Not so much of it was solo work but Heaven is, and is also the final album he wrote before passing in late 2021. His contribution to Jamaican music knows no bounds and took the form of him being producer, arranger, writer and artist. His unique take on the island's signature sound is present and correct here.

Mellow Rose - "Imitation Love" (7:30)
Seargent Pepper - "Dub & Rub Ina Imitation Way" (7:44)
Review: Mellow Rose and Seargent Pepper's 'Imitation Love' proved a big-hitting reggae 45rpm when it first dropped and so now it has been reissued on this sweet, limited edition red vinyl 12". It first came on Studio 16 back in August of last year and is already worth a pretty penny on second hand markets. The A-side is a super sweet lover's rock sound with falsetto vocals up top, acoustic guitars and fleshy low ends sinking you into a romantic rhythm. On the flip, Seargent Pepper gets to work on 'Dub And Rub Ina Imitation Way' which is more sci-fi and futuristic in its sound designs, all with a hazy and stoner edge.

Review: Someone has been digging away in a warehouse and has found hidden away in the crates this tasty roots 7" from Tony Tuff and GG's All Star. It's a timeless slice of lovers rock that opens with 'Lego Them' which has a lovely warm vocal over an easy going rhythm. It's run through with a nice sunny harmonic motif and natty chords. On the flip is GG's All-Stars with 'Dub Part Two' which rusty the tune through a big desk and beefs up the low end, adds some horn sounds and generally lets things roll.

Review: Alpha Steppa love putting out great albums - there have been several over the years and most of them on this label. Some have been solo, some alongside the likes of Ata Fall, while this one is a hook up with Welleie Seyon across a limited edition double 12". As always it showcases plenty of versatile production styles unified by some serious low end dub. All 12 tracks are as captivating as the next with Wellette's distinctive voice and unique sense of lyrical wit and flow making a perfect complement to Alpha Steppa's unmistakably weighty sound designs.

Tyrone Evans - "Rise Up" (6:07)
Bullwackie - "Rise Up" (version) (5:26)
Review: The rather infamous Wackies label was the first to release Tyrone Evans' 1983 long player For Lovers Only. One of the standout tunes on that record was 'Rise Up', recorded at the label's own studio. The Disco Mix here is a cover of a 1982 tune by Max Romeo with a baseline that sounds a lot like The Police. On the flip is a different version of the same tune but picking a favourite here is silly - both are compelling and quirky collisions of dub, disco, reggae and soul with a Latin injection.

Review: Annette Brissett grew up in the USA even though she is a noted reggae vocalist. Her influences are the likes of Otis Redding and the Wailers and she also plays several instruments. 'Hard To Find' is one of her most well-known tunes and it pairs electronic reggae with prog rock guitars and her own soulful vocals. It's curious and compelling and has some funk deep in its bones. The version is provided by Wackies Rhythm Force who strip the vocals and make more of the noodling prog guitars and dubby swagger.

Review: Whenever Yvonne Archer's 'Ain't Nobody' comes up as a reissue it shifts, and quick. The Jamaican vocalist is a queen of feelgood vocals, here mixing both disco and reggae influences. The original 'Ain't Nobody' is a gloriously upbeat rework with the heart aching vocal over swaggering drums and nice raw claps. This special 12" reissue comes backed with the fantastic 'Checking Out The Way I Feel'. It is an elastic groove with big, languorous horns up top and the sort of reggae keys that bring the heat. When paired with the A-side it makes for a devastating 12".

In The Rain (Mukatsuku dub) (3:53)
Review: Surely one of the all-time greats of instrumental reggae reveries, Ernest Ranglin is widely adored for a very good reason. He was there at the very beginning, and stayed relevant throughout successive decades of Jamaican music. In 1982, Ranglin teamed up with the mighty Noel Williams in Florida and recorded a sweet cover of The Dramatics' R&B classic, 'In The Rain'. It's a heady, dreamy version with a sumptuous, widescreen sound, as romantic and immersive as the original version was and this is the first time ever on a 45. But that's not all - on the flip, as played by Gilles Peterson Mukatsuku gets busy with a frankly stunning dub which loops up flute licks in a masterful manner.

Review: For those who remember, focus-grouped supergroup Alcazar made a barrage of infectious europop and trance tracks through the late '90s through to the early noughties, becoming one of Sweden's most internationally successful pop groups. 'Casino' compiled their greatest hits on CD format at the time - including 'Transmetropolis', a Haddaway-sampling slice of robotic fun, and their first single 'Shine On', an equally kitsch new age trip hop ballad showing off the trio's high-end vision of sonic urbanity. Now released on limited, 1000-strong magenta vinyl for the first time, this edition includes secret inscriptions on the run-out groove.

Review: The latest collection from the mighty Soul Jazz draws together a myriad of different styles favoured by black British sound systems, not only reflecting the roots of different communities reaching these shores but also the UK twist that that music has received as result. Reggae forms the backbone of the collection, from the blissful consciousness of Pebbles' 'Positive Vibrations' to the more protest-orientated Brown Sugar's 'Black Pride' and Tabby Cat Kelly's 'Don't Call Us Immigrants'. But the presence of Shut Up & Dance, Ragga Twins, Ray Keith aka The Terrorist and Digital Mystikz helps show the uniquely British areas into which sound system culture evolved - rave, breakbeat, jungle and dubstep.

Review: By now, we've become accustomed to Japanese outfit Inosakira Rangers offering up reggae and vintage rocksteady style cover versions of pop and dance tracks of old. Their latest cover, of James Brown classic 'Sex Machine', is a little different. It's no less warm, dusty or on-point than its predecessors, but there's no reggae or rocksteady flex - just a warmer, more laidback take on the funk classic, complete with distinctive lead vocals from Keichi Sokabe. They're back in lazy, Sunday afternoon rocksteady mode on original B-side 'Nagoriyuki', a sweet and quietly soulful number that pushes the band's bassist and organist - or more specifically their fine instrumentation - high in the mix for added nostalgic pleasure.

Review: 'Reggae disco' might not be a very well-known style, but Soul Jazz are hardly intimidated by any sense of obscurity, especially when it comes to a fusion between their two most prized genres. Homing in on reggae disco versions of funk, soul and disco classics, this curt but precious compilation features reggae covers of classics by Michael Jackon, Earth, Wind & Fire, and Candi Staton, with coverers including Risco Connection and the Crashers.

Review: The eleven-person roots reggae orchestra Guiding Star Orchestra present their latest LP in the form of Communion. All live, and with few overdubs and retakes, this is an instrumental dub reggae opus with a highly spatial yet no less jovial quality, and follows up the band's six-years-deferred prior LP Natural Heights from 2022. Living up to their name, the album marches forward religiously, like a noble pilgrimage's guiding light, in dub. Wordless, hard-hitting, submerged, jolly, muted.

Review: A fine selection of Cool Ruler Classics get some new life breathed into them here by the one and only King Jammy. He upgrades the Gregory Isaacs Kingston 11 catalogue with a truly a-list selection of talent from Jamaica including Sean Paul, Shaggy, Alborosie, Jesse Royal, Bounty Killer and several more. They all bring the down style to the material and some of Gregory Isaacs's finest performances. These are hardcore dubs with killer riddims at their heart and the sort of tunes that are super fresh but also utterly timeless.

Rise & Shine

Ariwa Posse - "Rise & Shine" (with Askala Selassie) (3:26)
Joe Ariwa - "Rise & Shine" (dub) (3:27)
Review: Mad Professor's Aiwa Studios has never struggled with turning out sublime low end excursions in a range of dubby sub-genres. This 7" offers the latest chance to check in with what's going on there courtesy of the in-house Ariwa Posse with Joe Ariwa. This is reportedly one of two releases coming imminently which is great news because it bangs. First up is A-side wobbler 'Rise & Shine' (with Askala Selassie) which has clean digi-dub synths snaking between hissing hi hats and endless amounts of rerun while the silky bass rolls unhindered and the vocals bring aching soul. Joe Ariwa gets to work on a flip side dub that hits different.
