DubStuy returns with the second installment of their riddim series in which the Brooklynbased collective pays homage to the tradition of Jamaican dancehall riddims while also updating classics with a fresh modern twist and versions from an international lineup of vocalists. Following an update of King Jammys Punanny riddim on the first release this time DJ Madd has brought the classic Kunta Kinte riddim into the 21st century with rolling drums floating percussion and weighty bass anchoring the timeless and irresistible melody that has come to define the riddim for generations of fans. First brought to the attention of UK dub fans by the mighty Jah Shaka and originally recorded by a little known band from Battersea Kunta Kinte has become a staple of dubs evolution with the melody making numerous appearances over the decades in both underground and mainstream hits. For their 2017 edition DubStuy has brought three different vocalists from Jamaica and Europe to vocal the riddim in a positive stance: Kingston legend Burro Banton preaches to the youth on Nah Sell Out; Rider Shafique whose unique voice and delivery has been a hallmark of the Bristol scene for the past few years travels Over The Oceans to celebrate the links between worldwide sound system fans; and finally Frances Shanti D takes a break from his work with OBF to bring it all together Inna Different Style. With Kunta Kinte Riddim 2017 DubStuy shows that its not just dancehall classics that can be reimagined for a new generation of fans.
