A roots rocking compilation from Micah Shemaiah & The EDB Clan

micahshemaiah-shalalakJamaican roots revivalist Micah Shemaiah has joined forces with Exile di Brave and his EDB Clan for the collaborative compilation Shalalak, a set featuring eight vocal tracks and four dub versions courtesy of German engineer Matthias Reulecke.

Included are two excellent single releases from Micah Shemaiah – Reggae Rockit and Dread at the Control. The other six cuts are previously unreleased and features artists such as Scratch, Infinite, Philip Crucial, Exile di Brave and The EDB Clan.

Original Style is a murderous hip-hop-inspired dancehall cut, while Puppy Noise is something completely else. This is an acoustic jam with Scratch & Infinite singing harmony accompanied by a melancholic trumpet. In between these two opposites there are several contemporary and well-crafted roots reggae joints.

The sleeve of Shalalak is inspired by the classic Greensleeves 12” cover. It will both sound good on your stereo and look good in your shelf.
