Reviewed by Sadie O., 4/7/14
Electronic Roots Rock Reggae/Dancehall. Top British Reggae Producer and top Scottish soundsystem duet remix each other’s songs, featuring lots of their regular vocalists. It’s a good thing Great Britain is carrying the Roots banner, because Jamaica’s in a musical slump these days… No FCCs detected,,,
1. 4:00 ***highspeed toast, nice swingy dancehall bubble with several voices.
2. 3:57 **** fat and juicy midtempo skank with Horseman and Sugar Minott and lots of syndrum – special made to nice up de dancehall.
3. 4:00 ***sound collage, slightly uptempo bubble with lots of electronics and horns, quite pretty vocals by Soom T.
4. 3:55 ***very uptempo and bouncy skank, a bit ska, with horn section and dueling toasters. Nice.
5. 4:25 ****upbeat and slightly uptempo bouncy ska bubble with lots of talking in Italian, gruff dancehall toasting, and fine female singing. Great package!
6. 4:05 ***quite psychedelic intro, then uptempo grunty march, extremely sweet, high vocals by Hollie Cook. Fairly unique
7. 4:04 **downtempo electronic swingy rock steady. Pretty love song with bits of toasting and syndrum, but otherwise unremarkable.
8. 4:20 ****goofy midtempo bouncy skank, racetrack bugle, wild vocals by Horseman.
9. 3:46 ***sparse, boopy, midtempo electronic march. Wonderful ploppy noises, nursery rhyme tune, sweet vocals.
10. 4:14 ***very sparse jaunty midtempo dancehall with lovely vocal cover of Bei Mir Bist Du Scheine by Hollie Cook and toast by Horseman.
