Ruff & tuff, rootical styles from Geneva's O.B.F. alongside Kingston's Nazamba & Linval Thompson!

A great combination this -
O.B.F. who are known for some of the hardest hitting steppers and one of the most powerful dub soundsystems around Europe, flex their muscle in 70's dubwise style on this vintage-styled, raw roots piece alongside Nazamba, one of the most ferocious voices in dub poetry to come out of J.A. since Linton Kwesi Johnson.
Recently heard on The Bug's PRESSURE imbprint, alongside recent Hotline signing G36, Nazamba calls for nature, and time away from city stress on the A Side 'Hills', where he is joined in chorus by none other than Linval Thompson, a veteran, and one of the most distinct voices in reggae music.
Flip it for a more bubblin' cut where a filtered bassline reminiscent of late 80's dancehall and also perhaps a nice nod to RSD's classic Punch Drunk material from around a decade ago, resounds below the synare and chops... This one is all about the rhythm, and Nazamba's vocal cements this feeling in the perfect way.

A big 12" that manages to feel fresh, whilst staying true to J.A. traditions of word, sound, power.
