'Water Tides' has finally seen the light of day after being on dubplate for almost 5 years! Ras Tinny's lyrics deliver a powerful & strong message with his unique and recognisable style. The flip side features a dub version by Alpha Steppa.
The original riddim, 'Integrity Dub' got Alpha Steppa's attention and started to be played out as a dubplate. Once Ras Tinny heard it, he got in contact with Rebel Samurai & Archiver, and the team was set! The tune itself is a powerful Dubstep/Dub riddim with a melody courtesy of the Melodica and Cello, and a weighty sub heavy bassline. The track was produced at Archiver's North London studio and Ras Tinny recorded his vocals a little later on at his own studio in Ireland.
Alpha Steppa’s mix gives his own take on the track, delivering an intense steppers dub with a self-explanatory title for the B-Side.
