ARIWA SOUNDS

Quality lovers rock here from prime reggae merchants, Ariwa Sounds. Produced by Mad Professor and released in 1985, it's largely escaped excessive spins at the sounds & dances until now which is surprising as it's a top drawer set throughout.

Starting with the title track, littered with UK lovers idents - big digital Jomox drum splashes, ultra crisp multi-track production and a super laid back vibe; it handily joins vocal and dub versions together for an extended dancefloor play that's perfect for daytime at Carnival.

Loads of other vocal tracks make up the remainder of the record, and they're all beautifully constructed, lyrical potent and bolstered with lush instrumental which is largely geared towards the new digital synths and instruments of the era. This was slap bang in the '80s remember when analogue production was largely ignored for New World production methods, possibly explaining why the record has remained unfashionable for so long. With a resurgent interest in '80s UK reggae, especially lovers rock, this is the perfect timing for this reissue.

Such a strong collection I can't believe there's not been more hype around this LP before now. Get it in your collection now!


This is the dub version of the "Techno Party" classic, it's companion release from 2000. Only thing is, it's never been on vinyl before! Previously only existing in the digital domain, Mad Prof's handily pressed it on vinyl for the first time featuring ten cuts off the original CD.

Lee Perry's vocals decorate the tracks, soaked in echo and reverb, as Mad Professor conjures up some magical hybrids of dub, jungle, downbeat and techno; a heady pot of influences articulated with poise, clarity and pinache. 

RIYL: The Orb Meets Lee Perry, Sheriff Lindo, Andy Rantzen, Captain Ganja & The Space Patrol etc.   
 

Classic album from Lee Scratch Perry from 1999 / 2000. Contains
many gems including the eerie 9-11 prediction where the Upsetter
predicts 'thousands of Americans will die'. With Mad Professor on the dials it's a dream combo of heady, cryptic lyrics & ultra-crisp, hi-def instrumentals. 

Repressed for the first time since 2000 on Mad Professor's Ariwa label, this is an excellent, experimetal reggae set. Check!
