Outstanding and miraculous, this record is an international effort, which resulted in a great combination of creation, relevant for both bagging it or playing out on a soundsystem. The original music is by Russia’s one of the most prolific and gifted reggae musicians - Rebelsteppa. It’s a kind and melodic instrumental music, a swing-stepper with saxophone.
There’s a song called “None Shall Escape the Judgement” by the singer Stikki Tantafari from Jamaica on the first side of the record. This song is rough and tough, dynamic and persistent. Stikki Tantafari has previously released music with Paul Lush on Nucleus Roots Records, which, is a good start for the solo career.
On record’s second side you will hear song called “Give Unto Jah” by Sista Sherin, the German singer. Comparing to record’s first side, this one is smoother. The voice of young lady is glorious, captivating with its sweetness, kindness and the real positive vibration. The song itself is peaceful and flowing and both the message and the lyrics are spiritual and righteous.
Also, both of the sides also have Rebelsteppa’s dub-mixes! His style is always a mixture of classical energy combined with peculiar intelligence of sound given by restrained echoes. Created for soundsystems! Not only releasing music on vinyl has become our tradition, but also delivering most quality sound. This time mastering and lacquer cut is provided by skilled engineer Sam, from Precise Mastering, UK.
