old school

hoboesque

this is classic - bass quietly bubbling like momma's stew in the background, hi-hat keeping it all in place, electro effects creating the colour, spare vocals echo'ed out across a bar or two, all nice and treacly. play late at night in the dark.

Best Wackies Dub

EMUSIC-0079DE4

This is probably the best wackies dub on emusic. They're all pretty good, but this one is something special. Check out Nature's Dub and African Roots Act 1 for more great Wackies dub.

From the Label Website...

Elijah

Engineer Douglas Levy was part of the original Wackies set up from 1974-75, alongside Lloyd Barnes and Jah Upton. For a while he would have his own label - Hamma - within the Bullwackies group; but besides Sugar's International Herb, this 1980 dub album is his finest work... Many of the rhythms are derived from a tape given to the studio by Sly and Robbie, containing their versions of recent Joe Gibbs hits. And there are brilliant treatments of Tribesman Dub - the rhythm for Tyrone Evans' Black Like Me - and Wayne Jarrett's definitive interpretation of Every Tongue Shall Tell. Elsewhere Jah Batta takes deejay duties - likewise Prince Douglas himself... But the deadliest cut of all reworks another gift, Steel Pulse's Handsworth Revolution, which arrived in a parcel of records from England the same weekend as the session: March Down Babylon Dub, with Bullwackie himself at the microphone in his Chosen Brothers guise, as steely and apocalyptic as Douglas Levy's fabulous production.
