  6. Addis Dub Plate (4:10)
Hardcore steppers crew unite: King Alpha and Fikir Amlak come together for a big one here that features the rib-rattling "Lalibela" on the A-side. It's got steel plated drums and deadly bass, as well as plenty of swagger and brightly lit synths. The vocal toasts add further weight and a touch of exotica, while two dub versions pare things back to the core and crucial elements. "Addis Ababa" is a more freaky cut with modern effects and twisted synths adding elements of industrialism. Two more dubs take the tune in more summery, airy directions, and both are utterly essential.

Review: Prophecy make their first foray into the vinyl world with Bunnington Judah & Hornsman Coyote bright together by production by B.Judah and the I Trol Tower crew straight outta Leeds. First up is "Revelation Time", a clean, simple, but effective reggae roller with deep rooted bass way down low. A more horn lead, experimental and late night version follows, as does a prickly dub with hypnotic effects. Various dubs make up the three tracks on the flip, and all offer something essential. Together they all add up to a great first release from Prophecy.

  2. The Inn House Crew - "The Uproar Riddim" (3:50)
Review: Room in the Key hits cat number 150 with Earl Sixteen & The Inn House Crew coming together on this big new rhythm. Earl "Sixteen" Daley has been doing his do since way back when, and has worked with masters like Lee Scratch Perry. Here he serves up a tale of lockdown and cries to be free, with digital effects and clean, pristine synths lifting spirits next to an upbeat groove. Of course, a dub is include don the flip with extra guitar riffs and natty chords all helping to colour the airwaves.

  12. Afras (feat Abdul Tee-Jay) (2:49)
Review: Earlier in the year, the Inn House Crew - a reggae supergroup featuring a wealth of legendary Jamaican players - provided the musical backing on vocalist Winston Ready's excellent Black Pearl album. Here they get a chance to showcase their undisputed musical skills under the watchful eye of producer Lewis Murtagh, on watch should be considered their debut album. It's a hugely entertaining affair that sees them embellish their usual reggae rhythms and basslines with everything from glistening jazz guitar solos and squelchy synthesizer lines, to samba-style acoustic guitars, calypso melodies and Ebo Taylor style solos. As a result, the album is surprisingly stylistically varied, but always rooted in reggae, roots and dub.

  2. King Kong - "Time Is Changing" (4:04)
  3. Claire Angel - "Watch Your Company" (3:44)
  4. Brick Wall Dub (Mellow Vibes mix) (4:00)
Review: I Love Sound prove it again with this four track 12" of goodness. Junior Roy's "Please Tell Me" offers a digital dub down low, with fresh, bright chords over the top and some complex vocal work that is diynamic and direct yet stuffed with realness. The version from King Kong - "Time Is Changing" - is laden with more effects but still brings plenty of crisp contemporary vibes. Claire Angel then takes the same production but serve sup her own vocal, with crystal clear soul and impassioned delivery making it an even more modern sounding gem, then a subtly tweaked mellow vibes mix focusses purely on the dub.

A Place Called Home
  1. Eva Keyes - "A Place Called Home" (3:40)
  2. Indica Dubs & Conscious Sounds - "Place In Dub" (3:39)
  3. Chazbo - "Zion Is Home" (3:40)
  4. Indica Dubs & Conscious Sounds - "Dub In Zion" (3:38)
Review: There's much to set the pulse racing on Indica Sounds' latest ten-inch, not least a first label appearance for rising star Eva Keyes, whose previous releases on Partial Records were all nigh on essential. 'A Place Called Home' is another brilliant soul-fired digital reggae excursion from the singer, with her trademark vocal lilt sounding more haunting than ever. Indica Dubs and Conscious Sounds make the most of selected vocal snippets on their accompanying dub mix, which naturally boasts tougher production and even weighty bass. Melodica maestro Chazbo gets to chance to do his thing over the same riddim on the flip ('Zion Is Home'), before Indica Dubs and Conscious Sounds successfully turn his take into a heavy steppers style workout ('Dub in Zion').

Review: Mowty Mahlyka aka Dark Angel steps up for a debut album after three years of well received singles on the likes of Konquerin Sounds Recordings, Roll & Record and Green King Cuts. His dancehall-tinged reggae sound is the product of having grown up playing with sound systems around West London. As an MC he is dynamic and diverse and brings uplifting vibes and fresh energy to the scene, all with a real sense of substance but also a worldwide appeal. The topics of social, political or spiritual issues all come up and provoke real thought while the production makes you move.

Message In The Music
  1. Ras Ranger & The Inn House Crew - "Message In The Music" (3:41)
  2. The Inn House Crew - "The Uproar Riddim" (3:49)
Review: Roll up, roll up, because here comes a fantastic new roots steppers from The Inn House Crew. The acclaimed instrumentalists and dub connoisseurs here link up with Japanese saxophonist Megumi Mesaku, as well as MC Was Ranger. "Message In The Music" is a happy dub with neon chords and a bright, sunny disposition that is accompanied by Ranger's complex delivery. On the flip, some prog guitars are layered into "The Uproar Riddim" dub. Both tunes are classy bits of lovers rock with a nice futuristic edge that makes them all the more fresh.

  10. Struggle (5:01)
Review: Toots & The Maytals have long been known as reggae pioneers with a fine discography that dates back to the 60s and the band's first incarnation. But now, founding member Frederick "Toots" Hibbert proves he still very much has it with a new album filled with their first original material in a decade. Having broadened the horizons of reggae over the years, that mission continues here with rock-licked tunes like "Three Little Birds" (feat Ziggy Marley) and more big band tackle such as "Having A Party". The vocals touch on a wide range of subjects and the rhythms are just as compelling as ever, making this a fine return.

  2. Cool Down Riddim (3:34)
Review: Truesounds is of course a fine collective of artists and producers creating music rooted in reggae but that draws on a wider sphere of influence to cook up some real freshness. Their 12th such offering is "Struggle Is Real (Cool Down Riddim)" (feat Jah Mirikle & Lutan Fyah), a gloriously upbeat gem with plenty of musical vibes, warm dub production and the sort of rousing vocal delivers that swell your soul. "Cool Down Riddim" on the flip strips tings back to just the music, acoustic chords and wandering bass. Great stuff.

Review: Youthsayers is a collective of talented artist from South London - and here they step up to the plate with what is a superb rework of Sam Cooke's classic protest song, "A Change Is Gonna Come." Plenty has been done to all aspects of the track, from the great horn section to the bubbling rhythm section. The vocal is reggae to its core, but with all the soul needed to really connect. This tune suggest they will be big stars of the future and are certainly an outfit to watch. Amazingly, the whole thing was recorded individually at home during lockdown.
