As one of the most famous protagonist of the reggae-dub UK scene, Nick MANASSEH is a reference for every sound systems amateurs. Disciple of the mythical Jah Shaka (with whom he played several times), he produced many dub plates in the 90′s, regularly broadcast on his weekly radio show on Kiss Fm from 87 to 99 and also played for the Rodigan’ Reggae nights as resident.
Sticking to the spirit of ‘DUB PLATE STYLE 90-99‘ released on Hammerbass in 2002, this 2nd volume offers a selection of unreleased tunes produced by MANASSEH between the beginning of 90 and right now with faithful featurings of EARL 16, BROTHER CULTURE and DANNY RED.
Included the classic EARL 16′s ‘Zion City’ (remixed by DREADZONE by the way) and the respectful wink at the CLASH with ‘Dubs of Brixton’ ending the album.
MANASSEH passes the feat of using both the ‘roots & culture’ tradition of the UK sound systems (Jah Shaka, Aba Shanti…) and the sonorities of today, proving one more time he’s a major influence of the actual dub.
