One of soundsystem culture's most fascinating elements is sound clash for sure. Comrades join a convention, presenting freshest treasures in friendly competition.
Imagine this single as a peaceful battle between two heavy weight produbbers of the bass music scene. One like long-term 45seven hero Beam Up meets Bukkha on the other side debuting on this junglist's sunday paper of an imprint, shining in all his honour of his latest signings on System, Moonshine and Lion Charge. Them meet up to deliver two vibrating bombs of dubwise halftime Jungle bassiness:
Double Trouble brings all the gold standards to the table, like amen breaks, mighty sub bass, melodica, skanks, vocal snippets and a well wicked organ in the very center. Better take off your hoodies as this dance will get burnt like lava. Lion better get done fi BBQ!
One Shot comes in less flooded and a 'lil cooler. But don't get taken by its ease, the riddim is heavy and will boil up any massive. Horns dubbed with smooth pressure, spiced by melodica blops, a massive strolling bassline and subtle percussions keeping listeners in suspension. Eyes up!

The single features two live recorded cuts over a heavily adapted reggae take on The Streets ‘Push things forward’. On the ‘A’ side, an original moody horns section glides over a rough and roaring bass line bringing to life an original rockers feel over this fresh adaptation. Flipping over the disk, Darren Jamtone gets to work on a deep and psychedelic dubwise version built for sound system disciples.

Just like Global Beats’ first installment of their Reggae, Roots & Culture series, Vol. 2 is a showcase album with each vocal track followed by matching dubs, some of which are exclusive to this collection.
All were produced by UK reggae duo Mafia & Fluxy - two brothers who’ve often been compared to Sly & Robbie, and have played on countless Jamaican and European hits over the years. Such high praise for this ace rhythm section is well deserved, as anyone listening to this album can tell you.
Each of these essential tracks has been chosen with DJs in mind, and are guaranteed to excite roots crowds, who’ll thrill to hear top drawer artists revisit some of their classic hits over powerful rhythms that follow the original blueprint, yet sound fresh and new. Mafia & Fluxy’s musical gifts stem from the love and respect they have for reggae music’s proud heritage, and that’s why the legends assembled here - most of whom they also backed on stage - were always happy to work with them and Gregory Isaacs, the Cool Ruler, in particular.
Johnny Osbourne’s Truth And Rights and this dubplate mix of Horace Andy’s Skylarking were initially hits for Studio One, whilst it was early Mafia & Fluxy mentor Bunny Lee who first took Barry Brown, Linval Thompson and Johnny Clarke into the studio for their tracks. The latter’s None Shall Escape The Judgment is accompanied here by a previously unreleased horns mix; Dennis Brown’s Want More is a rare steppers’ version and Max Romeo’s Reverend isn’t the album cut, but another unmissable dubplate mix, making Reggae, Roots & Culture Vol. 2 an indispensable addition to any selector’s record box.

Sound Transmission present three Jamaican digital-era artists across 2x7inch records on a relick of the Jackmandora Riddim. Produced by Interrupt (Trojan, Reggae Roast and others) the riddim features Carl Meeks revisiting the title track on his first LP (Greensleeves Records) with an updated and contemporary anti-gun theme. Veteran Tippa Lee follows up with a tough DJ cut reenforcing the same sentiment. Derrick Parker unloads a soundclash focused tune; here the gun theme continues but keeping the ‘killing’ confined to the dancehall. Sound Transmission is small independent record label and soundsystem based in Bristol, UK

Dub, the breaking down and rebuilding of the reggae rhythm, is a uniquely restorative music. And it is with this in mind, that Mungo’s Hi Fi have created their latest long-playing release.
Antidote is a ten-track album of dub remixes to existing and yet to be released Mungo’s produced anthems: inspired by dub pioneers such as King Tubby, Scientist and Errol Thompson, crafted with a futuristic edge. This is an album designed for inner reflection, non-physical travel and communion with nature. In short, it’s an Antidote to all the stress and restriction of modern life.
Throughout Antidote, you’ll hear snatches of vocals from Mungo’s favoured collaborators. The other- worldly voice of France’s Pupajim graces the time-bending Time Traveller. UK lyricist Solo Banton powers the chest-rattling Pulsating Dub. The ethereal Hollie Cook’s Sugar Water gets a haunting mixdown for Intravenous Dub, while Jamaican dancehall legends Jah Thomas and Lady Ann’s Doctor Doctor is reimagined as NHS 24 Dub. The unmistakable vocal tone of London’s Kiko Bun finds its way through a forest of crashing snare drums during Escape from the City.
Rain Keeps Falling, Mungo’s 2017 Record Store Day release with Jamaican roots icon Johnny Clarke, reappears, ominously on the horizon as Murky Dub. The immortal King Jammy relick Total Disaster by Shanti D is given robotic treatment to become Epic Fail.
The ancient voice of Rasta chanter Prince Alla anchor Miracle Cure, a new flipside to his 1979 Freedom Sounds composition Only Love Can Conquer. Two generations of UK emcees, Charlie P and Daddy Freddy, give sparing performances amidst the sparse yet deeply textured Border Patrol.
Perhaps the purest distillation of the project’s message is vocal-free final track, Birds Of Pleasure, a blissful meditation on the recent rise in birdsong across the world.
Antidote is a dub album that will appeal to lovers of the classic Jamaican artform and contemporary bass music in equal measure. It’s a sonic journey that will leave all who enter cleansed and replenished on the other side.
