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.
