Reggae Roast and Brother Culture got the flava

a1970370828_16In June 2015 Brother Culture and Nick Manasseh released the excellent showcase album All a We and now it’s time for another rough and tough set from one of UK’s most consistent deejays.

Brother Culture has this time teamed up with Reggae Roast for the seriously weighty EP The Flava. It comes with five deadly tracks, including the anthemic Soundsystem. It kicks off with bouncy 80s vibes on The Flava followed by the uncompromising Bring di Weed with its earth-shaking bass line.

On Same Ol’ Story Brother Culture takes the role of a history lecturer with lyrics like “then World War Two led to Hiroshima when everything in the world get nuclear, the nuclear bomb led to the cold war, the East Germans build the Berlin Wall…” and “the invasion of Kuwait, it was the first Gulf war, Saddam Hussein against Bush Senior, the first Gulf war led to 9/11, when the place came down with flames and destruction, 9/11 led to Afghanistan, America went to wipe out the Taliban, but wars don’t finish, the wars don’t end, it’s the same ol’ story all over again…”.

Reggae Roast has over the past seven years brought forward several earth rocking singles and riddims and this compilation with material recorded with Brother Culture hits hard.

Heavyweight and spiritually devout on Brother Culture’s new album

brotherculture-allaweVeteran UK deejay and sound system mic man Brother Culture has teamed up with producer and mixing engineer Nick Manasseh for his debut album All a We, a hard and pulsating showcase album with twelve excellent tracks.

The album follows the success of last year’s anthemic Sound Killer and on this new album Nick Manasseh unleashes some heavy as lead riddims for Brother Culture to ride upon. It’s socially conscious and spiritually devout.

Brother Culture has for more than 30 years preached his love for Jah while setting sound system dances around the world on fire with his relentless flow. He has collaborated with almost every prominent producer or sound man and has gained unique skills that he and Nick Manasseh have successfully managed put on wax. Highly recommended. Especially the driving Land of Gold and the sincere Selassie Historical.
