Sly & Robbie- Riding East

A fantastic dub, made so much better by the fact that it was recorded and released only last year in the brilliant album ‘Blackwood Dub’. The heavy roots vibe the pair mastered with Black Uhuru is on full display here, some 30 years later. That deep, incessant bassline is typical of Robbie Shakespeare in his full groove, whilst those deliciously sharp rim shots show Sly Dunbar is still capable of playing at his devastating best. Phenomenal stuff, and conclusive proof that in an age of reggae wannabes (I’m looking at you Snoop Dogg,) it is the veterans that still do it best.
