Killer new remix album from I-Plant

unnamedI-Plant aka producer and multi-instrumentalist Tooney Roots – responsible for the much overlooked General Jah Mikey album Jah Mission is Timeless – is back with a killer new project. Blacksoulremix Vol. 3 is a remix set in a showcase style and follows volume one and two which were released already in 2007.

The album – which is available for free download over at Bandcamp – features six stone-cold soul and disco classics re-recorded with a heavy 80s sounding reggae backing featuring live horns. Each cut is also followed by a huge dub version.

I-Plant has chosen to take on massive classics, including Edwin Starr’s War and Carl Douglas’ bouncy Kung Fu Fighting.

Crucial doesn’t half describe this release. I’ve actually had it on repeat for four consecutive hours.
