We are now hosting material on Bandcamp for the labels AD Studio & Channel One (UK) - our associate Johnny Beat is currently managing both accounts. Along with vintage material, you'll also find contemporary works being posted. Both channels plan to expand overtime to include new and exclusive releases. Check them out below, along with the promotional videos on YouTube.
Coming up, end of the month, we also have the widely anticipated collection - Best of Alien Dread and Martin Campbell in Dub. The stock is ready to be distributed and we are beginning to promote the material online. The album represents the most dynamic arrangement of the material; originally recorded in 2010/2011.
We have a new friend and promoter based in Brazil, a really likeable guy, highly motivated, and well grounded. The Brazilian Reggae scene has really boomed in the last few years; with new labels and artists stepping up to the plate, and we appreciate the support, and are happy to bump-fists across the ocean. Check out Leo and friends on the links below the photo.
In 2010 Martin Campbell supplied a selection of his music to AD Studio (boss: Alien Dread) for special Dub remixes which were then released on limited edition vinyl and 3 CDs. These original mixes are still available through specific vendors. Alien Dread decided to sit down at the desk this year and revisit his work. He selected 12 of his favourite tunes and remixed the tracks using the new studio equipment. The selection on offer is harder, more dynamic and augmented in places. We hope you agree that these mixes represent the definitive edition of this dual-project to date. Check out the samples below and help us spread the word, by sharing this article on your social media account.
The collection is now on general release, scroll down for further information.
Roots Survivor is a collection of hard-Roots vocal tracks co-produced by Kendrick Andy with Martin Campbell at the helm. The basic rhythms were originally recorded at Channel One UK in 1993 and the music in this particular collection was voiced during 2006/2007.
Throughout the album Kendrick continues his long-time lyrical style focusing on spiritual & political themes; chanting down Babylon, over vintage 'Hi-Tech Roots' rhythm work.
In this 2015 re-issue, the tracks were passed to AD Studio for re-mastering, which served to enhance the overall sound; adding more punch to the drums, and augmenting the low end, with an enhanced bass presence.
After a full studio refurbishment during 2014, Alien Dread is now back in operation and returns with the second of the new releases for 2015, with a special instrumental project, featuring top Jamaican musicians Alvin Davis & Asha Barnes.
The CD features as a basis for the tracks, a fully adapted part of the main theme from the 1971 UK movie, Get Carter, under the French film title, La Loi Du Milieu. We have five tracks in total featuring Saxophone & Flute versions from Alvin Davis, a Conga version from Asha Barnes and respective Dub and Ambient versions from Alien Dread.
