ZION YANT 7" 45 RPM
DKR-065 - KUSH DAN I - JAH LAW OF LOVE 7"
DKR-066 - REGGAE GEORGE - GIRL YOU'RE TOO YOUNG 7"
Legendary and rare roots reggae tunes from 1982. Michael "Kush Dan I" Gardine produced himself doing the awesome "Jah Law of Love" at Tuff Gong to great effect, featuring fantastic instrumentation. Originally released only in tiny quantity on 45 in JA, it's back now, and featuring the same brilliant label art, faithfully reproduced in Jamaica from the original films! Around the same time, Kush also produced some tunes with Reggae George, most notably the well known "Three Wicked Men." But there is also this tune, "Girl You're Too Young", a killer slice of heavy lovers. Only ever dubiously released in Canada on a now very rare 12-inch, it's also back again, shedding some light on the under-appreciated artist and producer both.
DKR-067 - WILD EYES - WICKEDNESS 7"
BE-004 - ANDREW BEES - LIFE IN THE GHETTO 7"
BE-005 - ANDREW BEES - STRUGGLE & STRIVE 7"
Straight from Maxfield Avenue, 1989, Castro Brown's New Name Muzik outfit produced some of the best of the first wave of digital roots. Here we present what we believe are their finest outings. "Wickedness" by now needs no introduction, killer one-away style. Andrew Bees has two of his finest tunes in "Struggle & Strive" and "Life in the Ghetto", both re-released here for the first time ever. These stand right beside his classic "Militant" on Music Lion as early classics of the emerging style.
All records manufactured in NYC from high quality virgin vinyl.
