about

We are thrilled to debut another reggae vocalist outta Chicago - man called Ras I-Dre! Tracked on a version of the renowned 'Lecturer Riddim' from veteran group Akasha, this recording has the bass of 2020 and the vibe of 1968 ... Massive low-end on this one!

I-Dre is one of the most positive people on the planet, and this tune reflects his optimistic outlook - We haffi keep it Up Deh! Keep the vibes high! Big tune with a big sentiment, especially in these uncertain times.

The flip features another true gentleman and veteran deejay extroidianre - Ranking Joe with his warning to all evil-doers that Jah sees your inequity actions and will hold you!

Big big versions on this one!
