Artist & tune

  • Jah Mason - Ain't No Joke / Jah Warrior - Serious Dub
Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
First there was "Most Royal", then "Rainbow Circle Throne", and now Jah "Steve Mosco" Warrior has unleashed the third single coming from the recording sessions with Bobo chanter Jah Mason. The first two singles already showed that the results from these sessions at Conscious Sounds studio in London were staggering and again we're treated to an excellent effort from both producer and artist. The brooding and melancholic "Ain't No Joke" is a tough message tune that drops real hard. Jah Mason delivers his lyrics over a great original Jah Warrior riddim with a thoughtful horns melody, actually the icing on the cake. On the flipside you'll find Jah Warrior's "Serious Dub" featuring blistering drum sounds, nice percussion work, and at the end a wicked guitar pattern and an atmospheric sax part to round off an awesome dub version.
