Album Review: Prince Fatty – In the Viper’s Shadow [October 2019]

This latest instalment from Prince Fatty boasts a full-length album deep in dub, packed with collaborations, that is characteristically catchy. ‘Two Timer’ featuring Cornell Campbell and Tippa Irie, the intro track, is classic, from the brilliant opening dub samples to the recognisable vocals of Tippa Irie. It’s smooth, relaxed, and…

However, it is with sheer delight I report that the proceedings seemingly went ahead seamlessly. Saturday I have to jump…

Album Review: Soothsayers – Tradition [Wah Wah 45s; June 2018]

Ironically though, Tradition is far from traditional. Idris Rahman’s lyrical themes…
