Jungle Revolution in Dub
“Dub was the soundtrack to my youth,” remembers Mikail Tafari aka Rebel MC aka Congo Natty. “Going to a hall and hearing my favourite dub tunes through some double 18inch speakers was my addiction. Sometimes I would not move from those speakers for hours. The bass would vibrate through my whole body.”
Artist: Congo Natty
Label: Big Dada
Considering the centrality of reggae in the very DNA of jungle music and considering the role of Jah Rastafari in Congo Natty’s life, it’s appropriate that his already-classic 2013 album “Jungle Revolution” should now have been re-tooled by this UK legend and his associates to reflect an even broader swathe of that great heritage.
Congo Natty has drawn on dub-soldiers new and old, UK-based and beyond, for this project. Digidub legends Dubkasm and the one and only Adrian Sherwood rub shoulders with Glasgow’s Mungos HiFi and Hungary’s DJ Madd, with the likes of Conscious Sounds, Vibronics and Jinx in Dub all bringing their own unique flavours. Meanwhile bass music stalwarts like King Yoof and Sukh Knight sit alongside a new generation of dubstronauts, Hylu & Jago taking their place with the scions of UK dub royalty, Joe Ariwa (Mad Professor’s son) and Young Warrior (Jah Shaka’s son!).
