Roots, Culture and Dub Steppa (MP3 Review)


WWW, October 2007 - From serious UK Roots and DUB to heavyweight Jamaican Rockers and everything in between, DJ Ian Irie of the Ambassada Hi Power comes again to bring niceness in the area!

Ian Irie doesn't just play tunes, he actually works on them and adds all kind of things in the process. Sirens, echo's, jingles, every knob on the mixing board that can be touched will be touched. The result is an experience that can only be provided by veteran Sound systems such as the Ambassada Hi Power.

Take Roots, Culture & DUB Steppa, for example.

Deep, deep basslines from Mafia and Fluxy open up a strong selection of known and unknown UK DUB and Roots tunes. This selection itself is just the first half of yet another excellent non-stop mix skillfully mixed by DJ Ian Irie. The second part is reserved for Jamaican classics, equally mixed together in authentic Sound System style.


1) Wailing Spirit - Mafia & Fluxy
2) Wailing Dub
3) Sacrafices of Righteousness - Jahmali
4) Praises to the King - Tenastelin
5) Edge of Life- Empress Ayeola
6) Edge of Dub - Mafia & Fluxy
