Invasion Of The Mysteron Killer Sounds

Soul Jazz have over the years garnered quite a name for themselves when it comes to compilations, go listen to their Studio One or Dynamite series for proof and this impressive look at a musical genre that is sometimes cheaply regarded as being cold and soulless completely disproves that theory. The cuts here are varied and exciting slices of technological wizardry and with the majority of songs coming in at just over 3 minutes none out stay there welcome. Although not what I’d call a regular reggae album the traditions and influence of it can be felt in every electronic beat and note and highlights the profound influence that digital reggae music has over many modern dance music styles.

Jayaben Riddim From Sama Roots Records

Based in Sheffield England Sama Roots Records, who were responsible for the popular Light Switch riddim championed by Channel One Soundsystem last year, will this month be releasing their second riddim.

The Jayaben riddim is named after Jayaben Desai the Asian worker who led a walkout, by around 100 mainly Asian, female employees at the Grunwick Film Processing Laboratories in Willesden, North London on Monday 23rd August 1976 in a row about working conditions, pay inequality and institutionalised racism within the company. The dispute by the women, who became known in the press as "strikers in saris”, lasted more than two years where there were frequent confrontations between hundreds of trade unionists and the police

Takana Zion – Rasta Government

Rasta Government is the third album from the young and increasingly impressive Guinean artist Takana Zion. This album sees him move away from some of the West African influences to a stronger ‘70s Jamaican rootsy feel, enhanced by the fact that it was recorded at the legendary Harry J studio in Jamaica with producers Sam Clayton and Stephen Stewart using musicians such as Sly Dunbar, Sticky Thompson and Robbie Lyn. The album is also mainly in English which suggests that Takana is hoping to appeal to wider audience and gain more of the international recognition he so rightly deserves.
He has been at times described the African version of Sizzla but this singjay star proves he can sing as well. Just listen to ‘My Music’, which sounds like a lovers tune, but the love here is not of a woman but of music and its qualities for spreading messages of freedom, hope and healing as a “medicine for the hopeless”. Elsewhere the lyrics tend to stick to good old Rasta subjects of praising Jah on ‘Give Thanks To Jah’ and ‘Glory’, a duet with Caplton. Slavery is tackled on ‘Stolen Family’ which harks towards Peter Tosh’s 400 years, while the title track ‘Rasta Government’ sings of a utopia a where a “natty dread government rules the world” and everyone lives in harmony with equal rights for all.
This album could no doubt bring comparisons to Marley with its musical sound and content but that would be a discredit to Takana who has self penned this album and is striding to make a mark for himself with what has to be one of the albums of the year so far.

Zion Train Dub Revolutionaries

A 2CD “best of” from one of the most forward thinking British reggae influenced acts of the last 20ish years. This album is a decent retrospective look at Zion Trains previous varied and boundary pushing work and with a new album reportedly out in the autumn this collection acts as a nice prelude to its release and leaves me wondering with some interest as to where they may go next.
