Anthony B & Subatomic Sound "Dem Can't Stop We From Talk" 12 remixes!
SUBATOMIC SOUND is back with a ground shaking, political scorcher from Jamaica's massive dancehall reggae star Anthony B on Subatomic Sound System & Nomadic Wax' re-upped "NYC-2-Africa" riddim, recorded in Africa, NYC, and Jamaica. In response to the universal anti-corruption message, it was remixed by producers from around the globe, essentially musically translating into the dialect of what's happening on their streets, resulting in twelve amazing versions we couldn’t have imagined, from cumbia to tropical to all sorts of dubstep twist ups as well as vintage rude boy roots, hip hop, and dancehall reggae! Anthony B’s politically charged anthem is particularly riveting because it called out JA’s Prime Minister Bruce Golding at the time he was struggling with civil war surrounding the United States-requested extradition of “Dudus,” a don from the Tivoli Gardens garrison district of Kingston and a leader of the Prime Ministers main constituency—an obvious point of hypocrisy. Anthony B recorded his vocals in Kingston in April 2010, as the the city broke out in riots capped off by the Tivoli Gardens military extradition raid. Tensions were further heightened by a drought that led to water supplies to many of Kingston’s residents being cut off for days at a time. When Anthony first heard the African drums, his eyes lit up and he and his crew began a classic African call and response chant to the beat. After listening to the riddim over and over on repeat, he demanded to go straight into the studio and, without a word written, delivered a blistering performance, waiving his lighter and literally jumping off the walls of the vocal booth while singing like a man on fire.
