Ras Mykha & Roots Ista Posse – “Rootikal Showcase” (Patate Records)

rootsBoth Roots Ista Posse as well as Ras Mykha are a heavyweight brand which we have mentioned not just once – http://dubmassive.org/tag/roots-ista-posse. This time we are proud to present their joint LP “Rootical Showcase” released by Patate Records. Twelve solid tunes inna heavyweight style, of course as befits soundsystem killers we get 6 vocal and 6 dub versions.

At the beginning like in Alfred Hitchock’s films we have an earthquake due to “Sound System Addict” about known subject. The next solid tune is “Watch I-Self”, which reminds me their big killer “Mighy Jahovia”. After this one Ras Mykha is asking “Are You Ready” to fight for revolution, then in “Heavy Load” they blow me away, both with heavy style and Ras Mykha’s vocal; the dub version is masterpiece. Fortunately Roots Ista Posse respects bodies of their listeners and they slow down a bit in “Falling” and thanks to a beautiful dub version you can give yourself over a meditation. In that way we reach the final track “This is my life” with beautiful lyrics and Ras Mykha’s singing.

A fantastic album for every fanatic of a heavyweight steppers style, solid basslines, great vocals and conscious lyrics.
