Double LP version, repressed. Subtitled: Unity Sounds From The London Dancehall, 1986-1989. 2002 release. Brilliant, haughty Jamaican avant‐gardism, inspired by Jammy's Sleng Teng explosion, rearing up at a Hackney crossroads in north East London, and facing down techno, hip-hop, breakbeat and rave. Staggering, exhilarating reggae music made by soundmen on a Casio and a drum machine, in a room over Eddie Regal's record shop. Presented as a next‐generation companion to London Is The Place For Me, the mood is more defiant -- a Jamaican secession from London -- with themes of inner‐city sufferation running alongside hymns to the dancehall and the herb superb. Brilliantly mastered by Moritz von Oswald from Basic Channel. "There's a whole heap of stuff that we did at that time, different even to the music, that we didn't really know what we were doing, we just done it. This feeling on the records, we did that with everything we did, it was just the vibes that we were carrying then, it was all about one massive vibe. Even with the sound, we weren't going to choose something that somebody else did, we definitely was going to choose something that somebody else didn't use. We wanted to go out there and say, Yeah, this is the wickedest thing, everyone has to know, and nobody else can't tell we no different. We pushed it that way, we carried on that way." Artists include: Selah Collins, Mikey Murka, Errol Bellot, Kenny Knots, Richie Davis, Peter Bouncer, Richie Davis, and Jack Wilson And Demon Rockers. With full color insert.
