Very, very rare UK stepping roots from 1992 * ORIGINAL PRESS copies *

This one's a special one for all serious rootsheads and collectors out there.
This first ever 12" on the elusive Dread Beat label, Original UK press from 1992, excavated from via our distro in London, and now available in very limited quantity for those who want a slice of this piece of underground UK roots history, with Danny Red & Lidj Ishu on a deejay tip, over a killer rootical, stepping rhythm from Nightdoctor, served up with vocal cuts and dubwise cuts, on a 12" pressing.

Perfectly capturing an essence of 60s and 70's deejay style championed by the likes of U Roy, and late 70's / early 80's stepping roots production as heard on tunes by the likes of The Revolutionaries, Capital Letters, Aswad, Mad Professor and many more, this Dread Beat 12", although still very much in keeping with the 'roots & culture' sound, to our ears also (subtly) captures a heavier soundsystem 'steppers' edge which was in flux at the time, via sounds such as Jah Shaka, and production dons Disciples, Dred & Fred, Conscious Sounds, and so on... Either way, you can definitely imagine this one lighting up a few dances over the years... The dubs are killer too, real high grade versions.

Keen ears will also recognise that intro horns lick on 'Warn Dem' which has been sampled by Fish, Goat & Suffurah, Warm The Nation' another stepping UK roots gem which was released around that time (and of which we have reissue copies in store here, fresh out via Partial by the way).

Seriously killer, rare piece right here.
Of course the price is expensive & dear, but some people have paid more for these in 2nd hand dealings, trust us.

Very limited handful here, for those who want one... Don't sleep, it might not come back around again.
