ARIWA

U Roy, also known as The Originator, is probably the best known of toasting DJs. From his early Treasure Isle Records releases through to releases on Island, Virgin, Front Line Records and a few records on ARIWA, his style has become iconic with reggae culture and MC'ing.

This is U Roy’s 21st studio record and finds him working with the usual standards such as Sly & Robbie and Lloyd Parks and produced by Mad Professor. More recent additions, Black Steel, Leroy Mafia and including a variety of vocalists - Nadine Sutherland, Carroll T, Aisha, also make strong appearances.

Lyrically he's still on point and potent. His delivery as confident as ever as he discusses black rights, the joys of Jamaican and the traditional roots themes. 


Lee Scratch Perry

Black Ark Classic Songs

Lee Perry is a stone cold legend. Not just in the field of dub (of which he is credited in having a part in the creation...) but across reggae music in general, as well as a leading Jamaican consciousness and universal vision. A true visionary, artist and character of which the world simply doesn't create al lthat often anymore. Originally released in 2016, this album on Ariwa was in celebration of Perry's 80th birthday and co-produced with Mad Professior (who he spent many of his later years producing with). The pair give some classic Black Ark material a fresh dub-over. Cuts like "Zion Blood" are re-vamped and re-freshed from the version that appeared on Perry’s classic "Super Ape" LP. "Moving On" is a Dubtastic take on the classic Lee Perry produced Bob Marley cut "Keep On Moving" and "Doctor Shit" see’s Lee Perry re-visit an old ska classic "Doctor Dick". A brilliant tribute to the living legend who, in his illustrious career, Has worked with over 80% of reggae music's core foundation.
