DEEPER KNOWLEDGE RECORDS NEW RELEASES - JUNE 2011
TASHA RECORDS 12" 45 RPM
DKR-049 - WAYNE SMITH - DANCING MACHINE/VERSION B/W GILLY BUCHANAN - ME NO MIX/VERSION
DKR-050 - PATRICK ANDY - AIN'T NO ME/VERSION B/W WAYNE SMITH - RAIN FROM THE SKY/VERSION
Round two of Tasha releases, two huge 12-inches showcasing two huge riddims! "Dancing Machine" by Wayne Smith and Gilly Buchanan's "Me No Mix", both on the same riddim, are now paired together. One of the best uptempo riddims of the era, if you listen closely you'll notice it's a re-working of the same riddim used for Midnight Riders' tune "Youthman Invasion" (coming soon!). The other 12-inch features "Rain from the Sky" by Wayne Smith, and "Ain't No Me" by Patrick Andy. Killer synths on top of a rock solid riddim, again by the Gifted Roots Band. All together, four vocals, three dubs, two riddims, all killer.
CHANNEL 1 12"/10" 45 RPM
DKR-051-JJ 12" - PATRICK ANDY - DON'T WORRY YOURSELF/VERSION B/W LEAVE THE DOOR/VERSION
DKR-063-JJ 10" - BARRY BROWN - NO NO NO/VERSION (*PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED, MASTER TAPE ISSUE*)
Round three of Channel One releases. First up is another legendary early 80s dubplate tune, Barry Brown's "No No No". The wicked rhythm employed here is now well known via Dandy Lion's "Vibes", but "No No No" is one in a next set of tune Barry cut for the Hookims in the early 80s, in the wake of his massive hit tune "Far East" and the subsequent album of the same name. Some of these tunes ended up being Barry's side of the showdown LP with Little John, but the remainder were never released on vinyl, relegated to the dub room, and forgotten by all but the most astute sound tape listeners. Released here on crisp and loud dubplate-style ten-inch, straight from master tape. And what about those other Barry Brown tunes you ask? Soon come! But right now, and next, a killer double sided 12-inch from Patrick Andy. Patrick did his best work for Channel 1, who put out a bunch of singles and two great showdown LP's featuring the youth. If you've been following our releases thus far, you should be familiar with the pair of killer Channel riddims on this release. ""Don't Worry Yourself" aka "Worry & Fret" is the other cut on the fantastic rhythm used for the recently reissued Midnight Riders' "Posse Form a Line", and the flip side "Leave the Door" is the megaton-heavy riddim used on Angela Prince's "Joker Lover", which we just issued a couple months ago. Both tunes with dubs, top shelf Channel 1 selections. Don't worry yourself, you're safe!
