Rootical Part 6: Easky Skanking (MP3 Review)


WWW, November 2007 - Singers chanting truth and right and the players of instruments playing some heavyweight Roots Reggae from different times and places: one hour of Easy Skanking for the Rootsman!

DJ Ian Irie takes us into a Rootsman experience that will keep the hearts and souls in a state of rejoicement and encouragement: the power, yes High Power of Reggae is once again perfectly represented by the Ambassada.

Heavy duty tweaking of just about every knob on his mixing board, effects, deep DUB excursions with one riddim flowing into the next like water on one place, where short silences increase the tension on others.

Balance everywhere, vibes everywhere too: from Conscious Lovers to a militant Johnny Clarke telling the wicked how things really are. A DUB Plate carrying the voice of Barry Brown, and the ever-faithful Luciano are two other highlights in what really is one hour of crucial Easy Skanking, Rootsman Style.
