    A Mi Shabba

    A nice mid-'90s release from Shabba Ranks, the defending champion of dancehall at the time. The fare is relatively standard, with some level of gun talk and slackness involved as a common motif. The more notable thing associated with Ranks is the re-elevation of the reggae DJ in the production of sound. Relatively surprisingly, given the heavy levels of cameo appearances employed by his rivals, Ranks only makes use of three supporting vocalists, all from within the dancehall tradition. He enlisted some of the best as far as production is concerned as well, with the vast majority of the tracks produced (and played) by Sly and Robbie, and a couple of spare ones guest produced by Naughty by Nature and Puffy Combs (prior to his real dosage of fame). Not a bad dancehall album at all, heavily infused with hip-hop grooves here and there. For fans of contemporary dancehall (at a relatively low speed), this album should be worthwhile to listen to.

    Flight of the Conchords

    Acclaimed Kiwi novelty band Flight of the Conchords follow the release of their six-track Grammy Award winning CD/EP The Distant Future with their full-length record album debut, the conveniently titled Flight of the Conchords (which, not at all coincidentally is also the name of their HBO television series). Produced by Mickey Petralia (Beck Midnight Vultures, Ladytron Light & Sound) in Los Angeles, New York and Wellington, the album features fully fleshed-out and professionally recorded versions of Flight of the Conchords concert and television favorites. And its release finally renders pointless all the inexpert fan-made audio transfers (the modern day equivalent of holding a microphone up to the television speaker and shouting at your mom to be quiet), which have bloated hard drives the world over. The songs are heard here in expanded but reverent arrangements. Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement's trademark acoustic guitars lead the blitz, backed by a diverse array of instrumentation and production technique. And, the album sounds legitimate and musically, it's incredible, but, as Shakespeare said, Does it funny? Happily, yes. If amazing, delightful and hilarious is your idea of funny, then prepare for undisappointment! These 15 songs pay homage to Pet Shop Boys, censorship, Marvin Gaye, sexism, Shabba Ranks, and backhanded compliments. To be blunt, if you can't find a rire ou sourire in the FSL study guide of opening track, Foux du Fafa, then, please notice, vous tes malade.

    Possessed EP

    Full Color Sleeve


    Just in time for Summer, Wrongtom emerges with a new vinyl EP on Tru Thoughts to take over the air-
    waves and sound systems across the festval season and beyond. Out on 12' vinyl in a full colour sleeve
    with an eerie, ouija board-inspired theme, the Possessed EP' continues in the spirit of his series of
    'Wrongtom Meets' projects, boasting collaborations with Tippa Irie, JC Lodge, The Ragga Twins, Desta
    Zion, The Correctonal Horns and Deemas J as well as a bonus cut from his long-standing live reggae/
    dub collectve the Stoneleigh Mountain Rockers.


    The Possessed EP' uses the killer rhythm from 'In East London' track Suzy Hangs Out', this inspired
    move sprang from a chat about beats with Mark Professor, who happened to pass the rhythm on to
    reggae singer JC Lodge 's husband Errol, who passed it on to JC. Oblivious to all this, Wrongtom was
    then contacted out of the blue a while later with the beautiful Possession', showcasing the talent
    of the revered singer who was signed to Tommy Boy records back in the day and collaborated with
    Shabba Ranks and many others. So, with that brilliant track suddenly in my hand, I thought maybe I
    should get a few diferent people on this rhythm and do what the classic reggae producers did', says
    Wrongtom: release a set of versions'.


    Wrongtom signed to Tru Thoughts in 2013, releasing the 'In East London' album under the Wrongtom
    Meets Deemas J collaborative name, which brought praise from all corners for its uplifing and cele-
    bratory yet down and dirty, vintage dub-infused sound. The tastemakers who lined up to heap praise
    on the album ranged from The Quietus, The Wire and FACT to Record Collector, MOJO, Q, Clash and
    beyond.
