about

For the best part of two decades now, South London Afro-Dub legends Soothsayers have been preaching their politically charged good vibrations to a growing and loyal fan base. Their live shows are legendary and vary from off-the-cuff community friendly gigs in Brixton, to festival headline slots and tours across Europe and beyond.

Having released their seventh album, entitled Tradition, on Wah Wah 45s last summer to much critical acclaim, 2019 sees a number of well respected and up-and-coming producers re-interpret the album in their own, unique ways.

Here, two young South London producers, one bass player and one drummer, take on a couple of the album’s finest original tunes. Rising star Wu-Lu, AKA Miles Roman-Hopcraft, delivers a typically fuzzy, sparse and dubbed out re-working of Heart Rules Head that should keep the new generation of head-nodders more than satisfied.

Drummer, producer, graphic designer, one quarter of The Expansions and one third of record label Albert’s Favourites, Jonny Drop is one of those people who can turn his hand to almost anything. His remix of album favourite, Take Me High, is a shuffling, life-affirming re-vision that allows the uplifting vocals to breathe, whilst adding solid beats, dubby effects and positive keys.
