"A dub version could be a stone killer", predicted David Hutchison in his 4 star Mojo review of 'You No Fit Touch Am'. And here it is: Afrobeat icon Dele Sosimi's recent album gloriously re-imagined in dub by two production masters, Prince Fatty and Nostalgia 77.
"It was such a rush to have Prince Fatty and Nostalgia 77 work their magic on Dele's album. With Fatty bringing the spirit of 80s On-U Sound, Mikey Dread and Mad Professor, and Ben Nostalgia having mixed Dele's original LP, this was always going to be something very special." Dom Servini (Wah Wah 45s)

Wah Wah 45s are proud to present the new single to be taken from the hugely anticipated third album from arguably the UK's finest dub and reggae outfit, Resonators. After a four-year hiatus - mostly spent tirelessly performing headline shows and festivals across the UK and Europe, as well as recording a plethora of new music - this almost peerless Brighton-based collective are ready to unleash their new material to an eager public in the shape of their third album, "Imaginary People". The title track from the album is a feel good, dance floor friendly slice of sweet soulful reggae that comes complete with a dubbed out "A Future Time Version" courtesy of Darren 'JamTone' Mathers. With a plethora of new songs under their belt, as well as what's becoming a very healthy catalogue of crowd pleasers from their last two albums, Resonators will be touring the UK and Europe this Autumn. Make sure you catch them as they're one of the finest live acts in this country right now!

A1 – Thriller: Ok here we go with Richie Phoe’s dubbed out version of Michael Jackson’s Thriller. Instantly recognizable riffs and melodies from the original track and reimagined in a dub framework. A thunderstorm leads the remake out and horror esc giggles and laughs add to the feel from the original version. The live bassline that obviously follows on where the original left off, is accompanied with quality dub stabs and space echo fx. The percussion on the rework is groovy and has a more modern feel to it with crisp snares and tappy hats. A cool version of this very popular and well-known track has been reworked to great effect.
B1 – I want’ a do something freaky to you: Right well the title is dodgy but this track is certainly not. Again this has been a dub reskin and based upon the original track of the same name by Leon Haywood. The riff has been reconstructed with a dub piano and sounds cool with the familiar space echo delay fx that is synonymous with reggae and dub music. Oscillating support sounds hold up the main lead stab to great effect. This is all held together with a roots n culture dub percussion that screams quality. All you dub heads out there should definitely drop in on this piece of wax even just based on this track alone.
