“Babylon Soon Fall” Subatomic Sound System + Screechy Dan

Full “Babylon Soon Fall” 5 song EP drops everywhere on Black Friday 11/27/20. Stream it now on repeat at Spotify & Apple Music or DL from Bandcamp, ReggaeRecordDL, Beatport, Juno and so on. Following the 10/30/20 single, this release features new dub tracks with reckless amounts of conga and horns from Larry McDonald & Troy Shaka Simms plus blistering vocal cuts with Screechy Dan. Musical victory to make oppression crumble and spirits rise. ”Babylon, Your whole entire system soon fall down!” A message from Brooklyn to the world, echoing a long tradition started in Screechy Dan’s birthplace Trenchtown, Jamaica, of chanting down corruption through song. In this case, incantation is done by voice, by the banging of the drums, by earthquaking bass vibrations, and by howling saxophones. Brought to you by the same Subatomic Sound System lineup as on Lee “Scratch” Perry’s acclaimed “Super Ape Returns To Conquer” album and the 2020 boomshot single “Champion Sound”, this has been a big tune live for years on Subatomic tours that many selectors have been asking to get in their record box. Jamaican percussion legend Larry McDonald is on the congas & shakers. Follow our “Revolutionary Reggae” playlist on Spotify for more of this energy.

Produced, mixed, & mastered by Emch at Subatomic Sound in NYC & LA. Singing, chatting, & yodeling: Screechy Dan | Congas & percussion: Larry McDonald | Saxophone: Troy Simms | Bass, Keys, Guitars, Samplers, Melodica, & Dub Effects: Emch | Art by Irie Design, France. Recording engineered in Brooklyn at The Bridge Studio by Amon and at Subatomic Sound by Emch.

Subatomic Sound System Shaolin Dub 3kHiRezAlbumArt
New Subatomic Sound System “Shaolin Dub” 4 song EP out now everywhere !  3 alternate mixes out exclusive on our Subatomic Bandcamp site[ Save it now and stream on Spotify, Apple Music, and Deezer  and many more].

Shaolin Dub was written and recorded by Subatomic in the downtime during the pre-production of the “Super Ape Returns To Conquer” album with Lee Scratch Perry and inspired by the mostly instrumental African jazz influenced dub reggae on the original Super Ape album but re-contextualized in a Subatomic production environment that includes both analog and digital recording & mixing technology. Additional live instrument recording was done in Brooklyn at the Bridge Studio and is documented in the EMC educational video with Subatomic Sound System on live dub mixing. “Shaolin Dub” has been performed live throughout the 2017-2019 tours but never released until now.

Vocal versions coming on a next release. Check tour dates Sept 19-29 USA & Mexico with Lee Scratch Perry.
