Anthony B – Dem Can’t Stop We From Talk

“If the defiant fire of his words doesn’t make the hair stand up on the back of your neck, then you have been on the Internet too long” — MTV Iggy

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.

#1 on Juno for 3 weeks, top 20 7″s on Ernie B, 12 of the 15 tracks in Beatport’s reggae top 50, top 100 in reggae on iTunes.

Cop it as digital release on Beatport, Juno, iTunes or on vinyl from Ernie B (US) or Juno (UK)

NYC-2-Africa (Riddim EP)

The NYC-2-Africa riddim was produced and recorded in West Africa, NYC, and Jamaica by Emch of Subatomic Sound and Benny Beats of Nomadic Wax. Striking right to the core of our very existence: Survival, corrupt politics, preserving authentic culture, and the destruction of our environment are the topics of the three heart wrenching vocals delivered straight from the souls of Anthony B (Jamaica), Jahdan (NYC/Guyana), & Bajah (Sierra Leone) on this crucial release.
