Jah Mason's teaming up with UK roots producer Steve "Jah Warrior" Mosco has led to the release of three great 7" singles in 2003. Now we're treated to "Rumours Of War", the next excellent single coming from Jah Warrior's recording sessions with the mighty Jah Mason. On this new tune the young Bobo chanter comes up with good lyrics, roaring out an outraged invective in the direction of all modern day warmongers, singling out George Bush and Tony Blair for special attention. Jah Warrior provides a seriously heavy one drop riddim driven by a wicked thumping bass. The same riddim underpins Bobby Blue's "Open Up". Earlier releases on 7" and 10" vinyl for UK producers Rootsman, Groove Corporation, Iration Steppas, Blakamix and JA producer Ossie Thomas already made clear that this fine Jamaican singer is definitely a name to watch for in the near future. Bobby is gifted with a truly beautiful voice and he fully displays his skill on this new single release from the Jah Warrior camp. Thus he delivers a well done and satisfying adaptation of Dennis Brown's old "Open Up The Door To Your Heart". The flipsides of both singles contain thundering dub versions, also worthwhile checking out!
