RYTHEM TRACK 7" 45

DIGIKILLER RECORDS - NEW RELEASES - DECEMBER 2010

RYTHEM TRACK 7" 45

DKR-030 - TONY ROACH - BIG BOUT YAH / DUB 7"
DKR-031 - TONY ROACH - ENTERTAINER / DUB 7"
DKR-032 - ANTHONY SELASSIE - BUSY BODY / DUB 7"
DKR-033 - GARNETT SILK - EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW / DUB 7"









All records are manufactured in the USA using high quality virgin vinyl.

Over two years in the making, we present four masterpieces of digital reggae! Callo Collins' RYTHEM TRACK label was started in 1985, during the birth of the digital sound. And even as such early digital productions, the first batch of Rythem Track releases from that very year stand as some of the freshest and best productions of the entire 1980's digital era. The Rythem Track crew of 1985 was itself similarly fresh, a small group of talented young artists. There was deejay Little Bimbo, who would become the late great singer Garnett Silk, another future star named Tony Rebel, and a pair of terrific but historically under-recorded singers, Anthony Selassie and Tony Roach. Callo and Rythem Track continued producing quality dancehall music well into the 1990's, with more big tunes and big artists along the way. As evidence of Rythem Track's brilliance, here we present four of the best Rythem Track selections, three from 1985, and one from 1996. Tony Roach's "Big Bout Yah" has been one of our favorite tunes for years, the riddim a killer variation on 'tempo'. Next, Tony Roach's "Enterainer" and Anthony Selassie's "Busy Body", both voiced on one of the best-ever digital cuts of the 'green bay' riddim. Lastly, Garnett Silk's "Every Knee Shall Bow." Over ten years from his start, Garnett was back working right where he began, with Rythem Track. Originally released posthumously in 1996 on Callo's offshoot 2-Hyped label, this is one of Silk's best ever, a high-water mark for both him and the producer, a shining example of the indelible legacies of both.

NEW RELEASES - NOVEMBER 2010


DUB IRATOR 12" DISCO 45
DKR-027
SCION SUCCESS - JAH IS MY HERO
B/W
JUG HEAD - JOYCE GONE / DUB






All records are manufactured in the USA using high quality virgin vinyl.

Hyman "Jah Life" Wright's DUB IRATOR label returns with two of the most hard to find and killer tunes from his catalog. Scion Success' "Jah Is My Hero" was originally released in 1991 on a Jah Life 12" in New York, and is one of the ruffest digital roots tunes we've heard. On the flip side, from the mid 1980's, is "Joyce Gone" by Jug Head. Originally released during the mid 80's in NY on a Dub Irator 12", this is one of the heaviest songs of lost love, a slow and bottom heavy rhythm with great synths, followed by a hard dub cut. Please note, the Scion Success tune is vocal only, as on the original release.

JEWELS - SLAVE TRADE / DUB 7"








Round Two of Leggo Sounds releases!
From 1979, two of our all-time favorite roots harmony tunes, both from The Jewels. "Slave Trade" and "Love and Livity" were both originally released on Jamaican seven-inch, on Leggo's Cash & Carry label, and distributed from his former Orange St. record shop of the same name. Both tunes stand near the top of the heap for hard roots harmony, no small feat. Next, on 12" we have Dave Robinson's massive tune on Leggo's awesome lick of the tempo riddim. In 1985, as the original tempo riddim was booming up the scene, Leggo was moving back and forth between his Orange Street, Kingston homebase and the Bronx, NYC. In this time he released a few tunes only in NYC, and only on 12" disco, where the format was already long-favored. Among them was this, a wicked lick of the ruling tempo riddim, huge bass and fantastic instrumentation, again arranged by Leggo's cohort Flabba Holt, and voiced by veteran rootsman Dave Robinson. A big booming vocal and the deep dub, titled "Vex."

TASHA inside CHANNEL 1 studio


all records are manufactured in the USA using high quality virgin vinyl.

Deeper Knowledge presents the start of an ongoing and extensive reissue series of tunes from producer George 'Tasha' Nicholson! The mid '80s sound of Channel 1 studio has long been our favorite sound in reggae music, being some of the heaviest reggae ever made. Chief among those forwarding this sound, right alongside the Hookims, was George Nicholson. George worked exclusively at Channel 1 in this era, releasing tunes himself in Jamaica on his Tasha & Under Pressure imprints. Through licensing, much of George's music was also released on various other labels in the US, Jamaica, Canada and the UK. These days all of Tasha's productions have become hard to find, but we truly feel his productions are some of the absolute best music and original riddims of the 1980's, so it's time these tunes came back on the street. Deeper Knowledge has partnered with George to bring these tunes back to the spotlight on his original Tasha imprint. In addition to many of the tunes you may already know, we also have a killer selection of NEVER BEFORE RELEASED material from some of our all-time favorite artists, straight from master tapes! This project has been long in the making, and it is our pleasure and honor to help have these tunes be heard again, and for the first time.

We begin with three cuts on one of Tasha's best original riddims, played by the Gifted Roots Band, all cuts from 1984. Michael Palmer's "Different Strokes" originally appeared on Tasha 7" in JA, as well on an obscure compilation LP in NYC. Steve Knight's "Love Me Entertainment" originally appeared only on his very rare "Orphan Child" LP, again issued only in NYC. Finally, Midnight Riders' massive tune "Wanted", is PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED, out now for the first time. All three tunes are backed with a killer dub version. "Wanted, for singing dangerous reggae music!"

A: THRILLER - TOO MUCH RACKET / DUB
B: WAYNE JARRETT - NICE AND EASY / DUB









all records are manufactured in the USA using high quality virgin vinyl.

More boomshots from the vaults of Mikey 'Karat' Jarrett! Straight from the master tapes, we bring you FOUR PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED tunes and one famously heavy instrumental! Best known as the riddim to Scion Success' tune "Young Africans", this killer riddim was built and voiced at Channel 1 in the early 1980's, while Mikey was on a visit to Kingston. Upon returning to NYC, "Young Africans" was released on 12" disco, but the other three vocal cuts and a different dub version remained unreleased until now, over 25 years later! The reality tune "Too Much Racket" by a young Thriller, a heavy slice of lovers in the form of "Nice and Easy" by Wayne Jarrett, and "Starvation" by Mikey Jarrett, a deejay plea to help the troubled Africans. Each cut is followed by a wicked dub version in a raw drum & bass style. In addition to these, there is the infamous "Resurrection" by the late great horns man Dizzy Flemming! This killer roots instrumental was produced by Mikey Jarrett and his friend Lloydie Prince in the early '80s, and saw only limited release in NYC as a 12" on the one-away MAN DINGO label, but became known as a sound system favorite in the UK.

AKSUMITES

We just wanted to share these rare photos of the Aksumites from the late 1970's/early 1980's. The first photo was used as the picture cover for their second 12" single, "Afrika Fede Afrikan." Second, check out the Aksumites on this flyer for a 1979 stage show in Connecticut...what a lineup!





thanks to sax man Jerry Johnson for the flyer!

Look out for more Aksumites music available thru DKR in the future! For now, their "Ark of the Covenant/Covenant Rock" 12" is still available - click here for more info.

high quality US pressings.

From Barbican, Kingston 8, the Chopper crew are back on road! From the mid 1980's straight thru until the early 90's, Choppers were steady releasing tunes both in Jamaica and NYC, and from young upcoming artists and veterans alike. Let's start with four of the most killer tunes from the Chopper catalog! From the mid '80s, two cuts on Choppers' own wicked lick of Channel One's "fight fight" riddim. Chopper's lick was laid and mixed at Channel 1 with the Black Roots Band aka Gifted Roots Band. The first tune is from Lionel 'Ganja' Barrett, himself a member of the Chopper crew, and one of the first artists released on the label. 'Rasta Cowboy' is his signature tune, an ode to a self-reliant cowboy-like life. Next, 'Original Melody' from Bobby Melody, letting you know none a them a ruff like the original! We were saddened by Bobby's recent passing, but let this tune serve as a reminder of what a great singer he was. Each of these two tunes is backed with its own unique and wicked dub, each a different mix. Forward now to the late '80s digital style, and we have one of our all-time favorite singers, Don Hickey. "Cooperate" is one of his best tunes, on a pure killer digital riddim. Last but not least is "No Darkness", Courtney Melody's cut on the 'cooperate' riddim. This tune is released for the first time here on 7", previously released only on a hard to find LP, this is one of his great unheralded tunes.

AKSUMITES - ARK OF THE COVENANT B/W NIGGER CHARLIE - COVENANT ROCK





high quality US pressing.

From the deepest wellspring of New York City roots, the Bronx, returns one of the most seldom heard and mystical pieces of roots music ever made. The Aksumites were a roots harmony trio unlike any other, and the 'Ark of the Covenant' is their masterpiece. Group leader and song writer Andrew McCalla came to New York City from Trenchtown in the first half of the 1970's, and quickly took up work as a solo artist and song writer for Bullwackie's and Munchie Jackson, releasing solo tunes on now-legendary labels like Aires. But at the turn of the 1970's into the 1980's, the Aksumites group got to work self-releasing some discomix 12-inches , including this one, a just-shy-of eight minutes long vocal side of singing and chanting, backed by a rhythm heavy enough to match their message. The flip side is the same heavier-than-lead approach, with the rhythm being mixed for vocal delivery in fine deejay style by Nigger Charlie (despite some labels saying 'Dub', the flip has in-fact always been the deejay version!). The incomparable rhythm track was laid in New York by the New Breed Band, now well known for their work on many releases from the Wackie's camp. The rhythm was then taken to Channel One in Kingston, for voicing, overdubbing and mixing. The group released the disco just once, but with two different labels - the THEBES SOUNDS label was designated for Jamaican distribution, while the AKSUM RECORDS label would be for distribution in NY. Over the years this record has quietly attained the reputation it rightfully deserves, among the select few lucky enough to hear it. But it need be quiet no longer, and so Deeper Knowledge Records joyfully presents it again...behold the Ark of the Covenant!

MAN KIND 12" DISCO 45

MANKIND - THESE THREE GIRLS / DUB B/W COUNTRY LIFE / DUB





high quality US pressing.

Double-sided late '80s digital monster, from longtime collaborators Sydney 'Mankind' Francis and Dennis 'Jah D' Fearon! Jah D is one of the unsung heroes of reggae music - uncredited session player and arranger on countless classic sides, including many from Studio One, much of Joe Gibbs' classic roots material, Junior Dan's tunes, as well as piano tuner extraordinaire at just about every legendary studio in Jamaica. Jah D continues to arrange and produce music regularly at his Grant's Pen studio, along with his son, on their own Builder's Music label. Sydney 'Mankind' Francis began as the singer in Jah D's former band Food Clothes & Shelter, while voicing tunes for early '80s labels such as Music Ambassador. By the time of the full-on digital explosion of the late '80s, Mankind was honing his skills as a solo artist, voicing tunes for big labels of the day, such as the wicked 'Hot Number' for Stereo One. It was around this same time that Mankind and Jah D entered Aquarius studio, to work on making some tunes intended for Mankind's debut album, and to be voiced over some wicked new digital riddims freshly built by Jah D on the new digital keyboards and drum-machines which had fast become the standard bearers in dancehall production. Two tunes from this session were given to an upstart UK producer for issue on his new label, and there you have 'These Three Girls' and 'Country Life', originally issued on 12" via the Jah Man label, only in UK. Over twenty-years later, these tunes have been rightfully recognized by astute listeners as classics of their era - the riddims sharp and crisp, the vocals a sweet match, the dubs...heavy! Digikiller humbly re-presents this great music of our friends, these two tunes are one in the world!

DKR-011
THE HAX - DUPPY B/W VERSION
DKR-012
MYSTIC - YOUTHS GET TRICKED B/W VERSION

high quality US pressings.

Digikiller proudly presents the first round of releases in a multi-part program of reissues from producer Trevor "Leggo" Douglas! As a long-time Orange Street producer, record store owner and then studio owner, Leggo has built a solid catalog of both wicked roots and dancehall, from the 1970's all the way thru the 1990's. For some time we've been huge fans of Leggo's productions, but as collectors we've found many of them inexplicably hard to find. So we're honored to be able to bring back some of our favorite Leggo productions and make them heard by all who will listen!

From 1986, "Joker Bad Boy" by Cane Juice, and "Duppy" by The Hax. Two tunes which blew us away from first listen with their amazingly advanced digital riddims, played live and arranged by Leggo's longtime spar Flabba Holt of the Roots Radics. Cane Juice, long one of our favorite singers, sends a message about all false bad boys, with his infamous lyric "nuff bwoy a love up di gun but dem fraid a di bullet". Next, The Hax, another unsung DKR favorite singer who did most of his recording for Leggo, sings "Duppy", delivering a warning with a killer Waterhouse-style vocal...."nuh go dung deh!" Lastly, forward to 1995, with "Youths Get Tricked" by Mystic. A pinnacle of 1990's digital roots, wailing against the corruption of the upper class.

"All who gone abroad, remember yard..."

Just a quick update - DKR crew has just returned from an awesome time in Kingston, so we're back to work here in Brooklyn on upcoming releases. In approximately two weeks we will have our next releases, the first round of a multi-part reissue program of tunes from one of our favorite producers, who's work we feel has yet to receive the attention it deserves. We hope to change that, so keep an eye out. The King Kong 12", 14 Karat label 12"s, and Philip Myers 7" are all still available, so get in touch if you would like to place a wholesale order, or check any of the retailers linked on this blog for individual copies. We've also added another name for our works. In thinking about our often-used acronym, we came up with Deeper Knowledge Records as something a little more suited to some of the serious roots music we have in the works. But really, our name is of no concern in light of the many big tunes that are on the way, so thanks for your continued support. I'll end this message with a photo of the mythical CHANNEL 1 studio, circa February 2010. We recently had the pleasure of standing witness to this legendary spot, and we won't soon forget it.

King Kong - He Was a Friend / Dub // Try Not I / Dub

King Kong self-produced and released this disco in the UK, with "He Was a Friend" also coming out on seven-inch in JA on the Jah All Mighty label. "He Was a Friend" is an awesome far-east tinged riddim, the lyrics a memorial tribute to the late great Tenor Saw, a spar and friend of King Kong. "Try Not I" is a pure sound killing tune, over a spare but heavy and menacing riddim.

Junior Militant 7" repress and more...

The Philip Myers 7" has been repressed and should be restocked in some places, and now available in some new places where it was not before. Check the fine retailers linked on this blog if you're looking for a copy. In the grand tradition of many reggae 45's, some copies have a mis-printed label with the credits cut off. Sorry about that! But the tune should mash it up sameway! The first batch of 14 Karat 12"s are sold out for the moment but they will be repressed very soon. Please get in touch if you'd like to place a wholesale order. We have a steady stream of releases planned for the rest of 2010, more big tunes! And be sure to check out our bredren GOLDSHOP's reissue series of killer tunes from NYC's immortal WITTY label. Thanks for all your support. More more more music...
