Big shout to Sam for letting us know about this excellent show on Red Bull Radio about the Peckings record shop in Shepherd’s Bush available here. There’s a nice bit of history about the shop and contains some fine tunes as well. Sixty minutes well worth listening to and only up online for another couple of week so get in quick for an audio treat.
Prince Allah – Stone b/w King Tubby’s – Great Stone (Freedom Sounds)
A nice tune for a lovely summer’s evening. A great vocal from Keith Blake/Prince Allah with some mad earthquake/explosion samples.
And for the dub side, the word heavy doesn’t even describe it. The late King Tubby was on top form with this one. Crank up that bass, annoy the neighbours (er only if it’s before 10pm as we wouldn’t want to instigate any asbo’s) and big up the King!
Thanks to Barak from Balaganjah for getting in touch with us at weeds after our post about their excellent podcast the other day. He’s sent us a nice pic of his garden, proof that dub and gardening do mix!
Stephen Marley feat. Sizzla & Capleton – Rock Stone – Ghetto Youths
A big shout to David Rodigan again for playing this one from Stephen Marley featuring Sizzla and Capleton with a super sample from the Rt Hon Bob Marley!
Johnny Clarke – None Shall Escape The Judgement King Tubby & The Aggrovators – Version
And the influence, the flying cymbal classic from Johnny Clarke with some help from the great Bunny Lee. And talking of striker, below is Bunny Lee giving it some from 2.15.
Big up all on that big tin thing, the ISS that’s orbiting planet Earth, “Give me a signal” as David Rodigan would say!
Riot (Instrumental Original) – Damian Marley ft. Sean Paul
A slice of bass heaviness played on the David Rodigan 1Xtra show this week, a dub of a tune by Damian Marley featuring Sean Paul produced by Hard Work. A sort of reworking of a classic King Tubby’s tune done over in a 2013 style. Hard as a loaf of White Sunblest three weeks old. Rough!
