With the antipodean spring having finally sprung, the Red Robin posse have hatched a fresh 12” that’s been incubating over the southern winter.
Featuring two ‘new’ veteran artistes, as well as a couple of more familiar collaborators, RR03 is bound to be another highly-collectable edition to their growing catalog.
Side A opens with Midnight Riders on a classic piece of Naram digi roots – this time lamenting the quick temper of his ‘Jealous Woman’ in the dance. However there’s two sides to every coin, so part two sees legendary UK sheejay Ranking Ann construct a compelling argument that it’s the ‘Jealous Man’ who presents the bigger problem!
On the flip Naram explores an earlier rub-a-dub sound, giving a solid foundation for roots icon Earl Cunningham to issue a decree against gun violence on ‘War in the City’. Raggamuffin Junior Cat then hammers home the message with a relentlessly militant deejay cut, ‘Stand Tall Ghetto Youth’.
As per usual, both sides feature killer versions from Naram and have been carefully mastered to tape by Pole. And, also as usual, they’re strictly limited pressings – so don’t sleep.
