Young Warrior – son of acclaimed sound system operator, producer and mixing engineer Jah Shaka – follows in his father’s footsteps on his first solo album. Young Warrior Presents Dub Box comes with six instrumentals, each followed by their dub version. It’s UK heavyweight dub in a murderous showcase style.
Young Warrior has learnt his craft over a number of years and has produced a few albums, including Sista Beloved’s Woman of Virtue and Rockaway’s Chapter One. He has also worked with his father along with some of the most renowned musicians and producers on the UK roots scene, for example Gussie P, Mafia & Fluxy and Ras Muffet.
Now he has unleashed the Dub Box with its relentless and propulsive rhythms mixed and produced by Young Warrior himself. It’s a tough dub set, especially the up-tempo album opener War in Kenya and its dub counterpart War in Kenya Dub. Anthemic horns complements the pounding bass line and the ferocious percussion.
Young Warrior’s Dub Box is old school conscious UK dub with its roots in the 80s and early 90s. Warrior style dub that will make his father proud.
