New Subatomic Sound System & Thomas Blondet 7″ Vinyl “Jah Is Coming”

SS027_Subatomic Sound System Thomas Blondet  Jah Is Coming

“Jah is Coming” is a bass charging 140BPM rootical dubwise UK steppers style cut inspired by classic Roots Radics and Scientist production in Jamaica in the late 70s. NYC’s Subatomic Sound System & Washington DC’s Thomas Blondet recreated the vibes for 2014 using a balance of analog and digital production that keeps DJs and global sound system culture in mind, inspired by the high energy spiritual steppers reflips of reggae anthems popularized by conscious sound legends like Jah Shaka. The tune has been a staple dubplate in Subatomic Sound System DJ sets on tours worldwide over the past two years and is sound system tested with subsonic sine wave bass and peak time jackhammer drums guaranteed to smash the dancehall. Though heavy on the reggae, the tempo makes it DJ friendly for roots minded dubstep selectors to easily flip into their sets as well.

“Dubbing on the Moon” on the B side is a pulsing roots dub driven by a thunderous bassline built on Subatomic Sound System’s original reggae rockers riddim “Our Father, Our King” produced and dubbed in a Jamaican style that nods heavily to the masterful Scientist “Curse of the Vampires” era dubs from Channel One Studio. The riddim is the basis for several Subatomic Sound System tunes including “Our Father, Our King (Middle East dub)” (based on the traditional tune Avinu Malkeinu) and their relick of the big tune by The Police “Walking on The Moon”, both of which are incorporated in this version. Amon of Analog Players Society is on percussion & Rhiannon on vocals.

THE ARTISTS: Skarob is a collision of bass music and dub reggae from the duo of veteran Brooklyn rasta Doctah X and Eastern European expatriate Rekloos transplanted to the unlikely heartland of America. The project features a variety of collaborators and remixers including Dr. Israel, Subatomic Sound System, Abba Blade, and more, stacked with numerous selections packing dancefloor firepower for electronic DJs and reggae selectors as well as others for certified headphone head bobbing, from dancehall bangers to dubstep smashers to deep, rootical dub grooves to sunny, psychedelic, atmospheric journeys. Recorded by Skarob. Mixed and arranged by Rekloos in Columbus, Ohio. Mastered by Emch at Subatomic Sound in New York City. Both members of Skarob write and produce, but unlike many of today’s electronic production duos, Doctah X also performs vocals and guitar, drawing on his decades past history growing up in Kentucky as a blues guitarist, touring and recording with Cream’s Ginger Baker, playing with legends John Lee Hooker and Albert King, as well as work with The Last Poets’ Umar Bin Hussein.
