BBR004 - REGGAE ROCK

Following the first three releases, Brooklyn-based Bent Backs Records asked D&H (Rennes, France) to recut the riddim of Mikey Melody's Reggae Rock tune, released originally on his 1988 LP : Mona Lisa (Dennis Star International).

 

They connect with the veteran artist King Kong (Jammy's, Firehouse, Waterhouse) who delivered a tribute to the “Sweet Rub A Dub” that he has been performing since the 80's with his particular style. On the flip side, upcoming french artist S'Kaya, is telling his mother “No Worry Mum”, singing a semi-biographic story where he explains why he was hanging out in the streets late at night while living at his parents. The vocal track is complemented by a dub version made by Hypa.

 

With “Reggae Rock EP”, the brooklyn label continue to reinterpreting rare 80's riddims and mixing veteran jamaican artists with the new generation.
