4: Dennis Rootical meets Max - Mind Overload Dub Pt. 5

Wicked steppers from Dennis Rootical, of Iration Steppas fame, alongside Max Ciup, digging into the Black Redemption dubplate vaults with a positive-minded vocal from the one and only Johnny Clarke, one of the finest voices to come out of Jamaica in the last half-decade or so, and served with a tough set of dubs for soundsystem play.

The rhythm on this is killer, there’s a proper stripped back skank on those hi-hats and the responding percussive elements, reminding of those early Iration cuts, which Dennis let’s roll out in a wicked way on those stripped back & thunderous third and fourth (or indeed 4th and 5th!) dub.
Johnny’s voice cuts through the mix beautifully too counteracting the ruff bass with his upful tones in the best possible way, as you’d expect!

Play this one loud, and make sure you stay locked from vocal to version, for maximum effect. Tough.

Cut & mastered by Lewis at Stardelta.

Strictly vinyl.
