Description

2019 UK Record Store Day release - French-born, Glasgow-based producer Stalawa has voiced a talented selection of East African vocalists to thrilling effect. Ugandan singer and emcee Blessed San, showcasing a vocal style not unlike the legendary Michael Prophet, provides a mournful rebuke on "Traitor". Stalawa has mixed a haunting accompanying dub. Connoisseurs' Jamaican singer Delroy Melody, who recuts his 1979 hit "Ease Up The Pressure", and adds verses from Luganda Rasta lyricist C Wyne Nalukalala. The remade backing, based on Dennis Brown's "Easy Take It Easy", was built in Jamaica by renowned drummer Sly Dunbar and keyboardist Dennis "Jah D" Fearon. Kenya's "first lady" of hip hop and reggae, Nazizi, provides "Ukiangalia", a dubby update of King Tubby's famous tempo rhythm.
