2009 release. Tappa Zukie is not only one of Jamaica's greatest DJs, he's a well-respected producer and arranger. Looking back through his master tapes, Jamaican Recordings found a lost release that had stayed on the shelf and been passed over... until now. When rhythm was king way back in the '70s, the predominant feature of the mix was the drums and bass, with horns, organ, guitar, and other instruments pushed back. This album was Tappa Zukie's attempt to rectify the imbalance and shine a light on the other talented musicians involved. When looking at the music with this approach, you can hear some of Tappa's other influences coming through. Maybe it's a jazzier or bluesy feel, and this almost makes the album feel like an unreleased film score.
