Dreadlock Tales Meets Tree Of Dub - Serigne Touba (Floating Mountain Records FMR002)
Dreadlock Tales is a really cool Finnish dub-roots reggae project by Kimmo Tyni and friends. Kimmo also plays guitar and sings in Albino Rhino (a more heavy music project!). Most of you probably don’t know it but I really love roots reggae! Anyway, I quite this bands Gravity Equals Love CD from 2013 on Ganja Tree Records. This is the 2nd 7” that is a Tree of Dub production/mix collaboration. Serigne Touba starts things off and it is a very vocal driven track (high falsetto voice at times) with a cool reggae keyboards and delays and programmed drums. Great sound and vibe. Shaykh Ibra Fall Dub is the B-side and features the melodica, reminds me of Augustus Pablo in some way. Cool stuff. It would be better with real drums though. I think they only press like 150 of these 7”s.. The first one was called Seeker. Check out the preview video below for the A side track, Serigne Touba.
