About this item

90’s reggae talent pool, Xterminator records was really quite revolutionary. Owner Philip Burrell and his largely Rastafarian clan of sessions musicians had an almost spiritual, gilded hand when it came to producing hits. If you recorded for Fatis, you went into the studio empty-handed - no lyrics - and put your trust in the Almighty. That was the rule and the artists who passed through Xterminator had to really feel what they were singing or deejaying about.

The first chapter in this incredible label’s legacy is presented here with twelve iconic tracks recorded at the legendary studios. It’s to their eternal credit that the music they made over twenty years ago can still play in today’s reggae dancehalls, and that the lyrical messages continue to be of relevance. That’s the strength and beauty of these recordings, which Global Beats have now lovingly restored and represented anew.
