This album is the long-awaited follow up to 2002âs STUDIO DON, originally released on Jazzanovaâs offshoot label Best Seven. Whilst the first album took its inspiration from Jamaica and Cuba â specifically dub, reggae and Latin music â the new album looks further back to the source of black music and draws heavily on the music that came out of West Africa during the mid-70s.
This is the sweltering era of high action guitars and warped neck bass, psychedelic organs, primitive funk and heavyweight rhythms overlaid with barnstorming brass sections, where feel takes sway over tuning and FIRE comes before technique.
This raw feel was retained in sessions at Biggaâs farmhouse studio in the South of England where he laid down all the rhythm tracks and worked with a live brass section prior to collaborating with musicians in New York, Dublin and London.
Thus we have deep dub poetry from Earl Zinger (aka Rob Gallagher, Gilles Petersonâs live MC, 2 Banks of Four and Red Egyptian), NYC rap attitude from Candice Cannabis, Latino consciousness from Blanquito Man (King Chango, Up Bustle & Out) and Nigerian MC Lariman Ojelade.
