September 2014 - The second "virtual
seven inch" featuring Ras Kitchen has a
much deeper Roots and Culture vibe than the first
one. Two heavy Roots Dub tracks, each
having their very own distinctive vibe and
approach. What both track have in common is
the superb vocal singing of Asante Amen,
Horns from Mad Professor's Ariwa studio and
Messian Dread's Dubwise mixing.
the two different tracks show the
versatility and wideness of variety possible
within Roots Reggae (Dub). In a way, it's
also a statement concerning the use of
"real instruments" versus
programmed music. There is no
"versus", there is just one thing:
the rhythm of Roots Reggae as a means of
communication. Playing and producing is one
thing, knowing yourself and Reggae music is
has the (played) drums from Roots Radics
drummer Style Scott, the other has a
programmed Drum rhythm from Mad Professor's
Ariwa studio. One track has a digital filter
on the bass, the other track has a virtual
analog. One track has a piano and guitar
playing just the riddim where all the echo's
and other effects do their thing, where the
riddim or skank section at the other track
features a lot of play with guitar wah's and
an organ bubble.
feature the vocals of Ras Kitchen and the
very, very talented and skilled singer
Asante Amen. Both men "happen" to
be Rastaman, and a Rastaman comes with
reasoning and with a meditation or a message
if you will. Food for thought.
track, you'll hear Assante Amen chanting and
praying for equal rights and justice which
"happens" to be the state of reign
when Babylon is finally downstroyed and the
Most High rules visible for all mankind.
Yes, this is when Righteousness will Cover
the Earth as the Book of Life tells us. This
fire is blazing in the hearts of all true
Rastaman, and if you want to make the parallel
between the Rasta Food that Ras Kitchen is
cooking and explaining in the track and the
reasoning Asante Amen gives as a Rasta Food
for thought, you've made the same parallel
as Messian Dread when he made this Dub.
other track, there is much more a dialogue
between Ras Mokko and Asante Amen. Together,
they chant down racism and point out to the
One Love, the One Perfect Love that enables
people of all color to come together. We do
not want no division along racial lines and
lies, so that we are all equal and there is
no one race superior and another inferior.
This is what the Rastaman works on on a
global scale, this is the message to the
world and not just from the two vocalist but
equally from the producer of this free
like the music, consider donating
a little bit of money Ras Kitchen and/or
