Groove Corporation brought us the beautiful Bim Sherman tune "More Love in the Ghetto" which showcased Bim Sherman at his most calm and sedate, matching the intensity of his works with Adrian Sherwood.

"Watch What Ya Put Inna Rizzla" invokes the spirit of Keith Hudson for guidance, using one of the roughest b lines from the Pressure Sounds album -- "Image Dub." And this EP offers no less than 6 spacious, heavyweight mixes. All these versions are inna steppers style, but thankfully, Groove Corporation's approach here is not limited by the cliches that can tend to spoil a lot of new digi roots releases.

Leading the vibes over the top of the rhythm track is a talented Unity Hi fi/ Saxon style mic chanter with a pertinent lyric about chemical drugs that mash up the brain.

Along with their Bim Sherman tunes, this is arguably the best work out of Groove Corporation's studios. UK has long had its own distinctive and original style and fashion to offer the serious music lover and it is a genuine, innovative force. Don't miss it whilst devoting all your time and energy to what the JA studios have to offer, because the UK tunes -- at their peak -- are just as adventurous - Occasionally, more so, it must be said.

This EP is one of the strongest UK reggae tunes of the last year, revisiting and updating the mid 80's dancehall /dubwise fusion style.

Watch out for other tunes on Different Drummer label too, particularly the excellent low key ambience and silence of "Plans For a Modern City."
