Rootical Part 8: Too Much Back-Biting (MP3 Review)


WWW, December 2007 - In another massive mix that will bless the Roots People and drive away the vampires, DJ Ian Irie presents one hour of pure Roots and Culture from several times and places.

As he touches every knob on his mixing table and the effect button like an addict, DJ Ian Irie of the Ambassada Hi-Power Sound System plays one piece of UK DUB and Roots after the other Jamaican DUB and Roots.

This is the kind of mix you preferably want to listen to on a HiFi set that can produce a lot, and I mean a lot, of bass. Combined with a lot of volume, you will start to dance from the top to the very last drop.

Most of the Ambassada podcasts go further than "just" presenting Reggae Music the way it should be presented by a Sound System, and Rootical Part Eight is no exception to that rule.

As the name suggests, there is actually a theme or reasoning behind the selection and usually the lyrical topics in the selection will provide lots and lots of food for thought.

Enough food to meditate during the long, long DUB parts for which we give thanks as well!
