Roger Robinson’s “Dog Heart City” out on limited vinyl LP

“New Maps” video by Roger Robinson

Hot off the press comes the vinyl version of Roger Robinson‘s epic “Dog Heart City“, originally out last January on (now hard to find) cassette.

Re-mastered and cut by Pole for extra analogue goodness and coming with hand-drawn cover art by Kiki Hitomi, this crucial document of the Brexit era shouldn’t miss in any collectors crate.

From the remote township of Te Mata, in the rugged hills of New Zealand, comes a new imprint following in the tradition of mid-80s rub-a-dub from an often overlooked corner of dancehall culture.

The brainchild of local farmer and radio personality Red Robin – alongside the deadly production duo Naram and Art – the first 12” features two heavy-like-lead riddims with discomix cuts from four unsung heroes of the 80s with conscious, street-level lyrics.

Side A finds legendary singer Winston ‘Midnight Riders’ Powell rise again on a synth-infused piece of classic rub-a-dub. Despite being his first release in decades, he delivers a cutting edge vocal from his Kingston 9 borough about life Outta Road in the Jamaican capital. He then crosses live to special agent Speng Bond for a deejay report on the current state of Britain in Dread Outta Road.

With a more uptempo riddim, the flipside sees Toronto-based 80s star Steve Knight fire some timely shots at corrupt politicians with Dem a Fraud before Los Angeles-based MC Tippa Lee comes correct with a self-affirming deejay cut on Salute the Veteran.

Both sides are served with one-away dub mixes from Naram and added textural touches from disrupt. Mastered and cut by Pole / Scape Mastering for extra heavy low end. Strictly limited pressings.

The mysterious Reverend Danny Dread descends from the mist-shrouded hills of the Jamaican hinterland to deliver a sermon to all dibby dibby soundbwoys who run their mouths. Originally cut as a dubplate on a Naram riddim engineered from the DNA of an obscure early 90s Jammys cut, “Chatty Mouth Defeat” makes it clear it’s not wise to ramp with the Colonel.

The next round of Colonel Mustard’s grenades are ready to be launched, with two veteran raggamuffin deejays riding military-grade riddims developed by Naram and disrupt.

First up, original Wild Apache legend Junior Cat unleashes a rapid-fire lyrical assault on those who fail to respect the foundations and culture of real dancehall music. “See Di Bobo Dread” shows the cat is still in fine form, riding the depth-charger bassline of Naram’s Feline riddim with gruff finesse.
