The Rootsman Vs Muslimgauze

Return To The City Of Djinn

    The second part of the famous collaboration between two UK based electronic pioneers: John Bolloten aka The Rootsman and Bryn Jones aka Muslimgauze. For this album the original The Rootsman material from his albums Into The Light and 52 Days to Timbuktu was remixed and deconstructed by Muslimgauze. As always with Bryn Jones, all material is inspired by Arab culture. We hear distorted dub rhythms, sawn-off loops, traditional music, male and female voices and then distorted rhythms again. Closing your eyes, you can find yourself in the middle of an eastern city, walk along its noisy streets, admire the ancient architecture. This noise can tell amazing stories!

    Lovetime Guarantee is delighted to announce the official re-issue of Tobago-born Rootsman's "Wild Goose Chase", which is a perfect blend of boogie, disco, dub, funk, and reggae. This worldwide reissue is the first for Lovetime Guarantee and is expected to be the first of many rare gems spanning the soulful spectrum of music.

    Rootsman's career dates back to the late 1970s, and he is best known for hits such as "Miami Vibes", "Rack Mih Rack Mih", "Parkway Rock", and "Soca In The Palace". He produced "Wild Goose Chase" himself and worked closely in the Trini scene with names like Leston Paul. Unfortunately, he passed away on August 21, 2015, leaving behind a rich musical legacy.

    The LTG001 vinyl features new artwork by Sirkett, and it is a must-have for all collectors and lovers of rare tunes. Lovetime Guarantee has worked with the legal rights holders to provide this high-quality repress for all to enjoy. Originally pressed in 1986 by Crosby's, this reissue not only includes a remaster of the original but also an extended dubbed-out re-edit from Nick The Record & Dan Tyler - a version that has already received dancefloor approval from Nick's recent sets!


    STAFF COMMENTS

    Matt says: Seems like we're due a disco-reggae resurgence this summer with Nick The Record and Dan Idjuts adding some extra dancefloor umph to this lilting sunshine skank from Rootsman.
