Celebrating their 10th anniversary in fine style - what a wicked collaboration on dis ya riddim Iyah! France's Heartical Label teams up with the Basque Dub Foundation and get a final mix down from London's Dub Terror. Incredible roster of veteran vocalists saddle pon de Ministerio Del Dub Riddim, including the late great Alton Ellis, David "Steel Pulse" Hinds, Earl 16, Mykal Roze, Sugar Minott, Zareb, Papa Kojak, Little Roy and Carl Dawkins. On the flip of the Carl Dawkins version is France's Lady M's debut single in combination with JA's Antonio - a nice french/patois adaptation of Whitney Houston's My Love Is Your Love mixed by Trevor T.
This series of 7" singles should be out any day now, with a serious dub on the b-sides. A rootical sound indeed, as BDF drops a riddim reminiscent of the golden sound of the Root Radics 'longside Scientist or even, as the first seconds of the mix below remind me a lot of King Kong's Rumble Jumble Life (on Massive B's Cuss Cuss riddim). Check Heartical's MySpace page or website for more info, tracks and dubplate specials. Listen to Heartical's Ministerio del Dub riddim mix by clicking on the labels below. Yes Heartical Sound- keep mashin Babylon down!
