Six years ago Kenny Edgehill and Nereus Joseph produced the combination tune "Blackman Time" by Starkey Banton & Nereus Joseph and Vivian Jones' "Rastafari Is My Life", which were released as 7" singles on their own label, Sirius Records. Now they've re-issued Vivian Jones' "Rastafari Is My Life" along with three brand new pieces across the "Fundimental" riddim. The latter is a slow burning roots one drop, which is laid by UK's renown Heywood brothers aka Mafia & Fluxy and mixed by Ruff Cutt member Bubblers. For about twenty-five years by now Vivian Jones has proven to belong to the UK's best singers. No matter what kind of tune he delivers, Vivian's songs are always worth hearing and the wonderful "Rastafari Is My Life" is further evidence of this statement. The under rated and too often overlooked Nereus Joseph is a great singer who, together with Starkey Banton, first delivered the notable cultural tune "Blackman Time" over the riddim, and now comes up with a matching solo effort entitled "Fundimental Principles Of Life". Once again it's truly worthwhile hearing Nereus Joseph's vocal and conscious lyrical delivery, which makes us wonder why "Blackman Time" hasn't been re-issued either. Empress Ayeola debuts on Sirius Records with "Blessed Is He", a solid tune which shows she's an artist with energy in her voice and lyrics, and besides that you'll also hear a certain sweetness in her vocal delivery. Jah Mirikle hails from the island of St. Lucia (West Indies). Since arriving in the UK, he has worked with producers such as Mad Professor, Blacka Dread, and Wesley Johnson. With Kenny Edgehill and Nereus Joseph he recorded the ganja tune "Jah Ge We De Weed", a decent effort of a young and vibrant singer who surely is a name to look out for in the near future. On the flipsides the listener is treated to a nice dubwise version.
