KING OF THE ZULU TRIBE








The dubwise counterpart to Max Romeo's "Fari - Captain Of My Ship" album. This album heralded a new sound for Shaka, the sound of Jamaica, recorded at Augustus "Gussie" Clarke's Music Works Studio with the Firehouse Crew, and more crucially, at the mixing board it featured "Soljie" Hamilton and Paul Daley, two of the island`s finest mixing engineers. The Firehouse Crew add the "fire" of Jamaica in the rhythms, most of which are updated versions of older classic tunes. Check "Smiling Dub" (a version of the dubplate killer "Jah Give I The Power" by Johnny Clarke), "One Dub" (a lick of the classic "Warning" by Desmond "Desi Roots" Young) and "Dub Away" (Max Romeo`s "Melt Away" originally recorded circa `77). Also versioned is Shaka`s own "Revelation 18" ("Suffer Dub") and Dread & Fred`s "Warrior Stance" ("Kumbia Dub"). Dig deeper and there`s more! What makes this album and its vocal counterpart stand out is the production mix, a blend of digital mix and dubwise sophistication, in turn making this, the first dub album to come out of Jamaica in about 10 years.
