    Keith Hudson

    Pick A Dub - 2023 Reissue

      'Pick A Dub' showcased the enduring strength and pivotal importance of the rhythm to the development of reggae music and Keith Hudson's complete mastery of the genre and the unqualified praise that followed its release was fully justified - The album's "austere sonic qualities" are awe inspiring, the superb rhythms are given full rein unencumbered by extra effects and studio trickery, and the overall effect is as mesmerising now as it was over forty years ago.

            Matt says: Read the above! ALL TIME CLASSIC. All three volumes are dub reggae corner stones. For a while the licenses were feverishly contested (and consequently bootlegged to buggary), but VP seem to have sorted all that out with an official set that sounds crisper and fatter than all those dodgy boots. Maximum jahs on this one folks!

                  Bam Bam - 2023 Reissue

                    Now a classic reggae anthem, 'Bam Bam' celebrates Sister Nancy's success as a woman in the male-dominated dancehall scene of the 80s. Nancy was the first woman to perform at Reggae Sunsplash, a Jamaican reggae festival, and the first female Jamaican DJ to tour internationally. The song's chorus has been sampled, remixed, covered, and interpolated in several songs after its release, including by Main Source, Pete Rock, Gang Starr, Lion of Judah (Congo Natty), Lauryn Hill, Madlib, Groove Armada, Dj Defkline (Deekline), Ed Solo, Stylo G, Jay-Z and many, many more! The hook is in fact sampled from the 1965 song of the same title by The Maytals.
