Dubbin' with Bulby: Exclusive 'Master Blaster' Mixdown

Legendary Producer and Engineer Dubs Beres, Busy & Kartel Live in the Studio

A graduate of King Tubby’s Dub University, Colin “Bulby” Yorke has done his teacher proud. Over the course of nearly 30 years in the music industry, Bulby has produced, mixed, and engineered a plethora of certified boomshots—recordings by most of the top artists in dancehall and reggae pantheon—both as part of the Fat Eyes camp and under his own banner. Having worked with the likes of No Doubt and Rihanna as well, it was only right for Bulby to begin releasing albums himself. His solo debut, Epic & Ting, was so well received that he recently dropped a follow-up entitled Master Blaster. During a recent promo run through NYC, Bulby invited Boomshots up to Grey Noise recording studio in Times Square for a very special musical treat. Sitting down next to Reshma B at the mixing board, Bulby ran through an exclusive dub mixdown of three crucial tracks from Master Blaster: “Freedom” featuring Beres Hammond, Marcia Griffiths, J Boog & Lutah Fyah, “Cherry Oh Baby” featuring Busy Signal and Patrice Roberts, and “Cyan Dween Like We” featuring Vybz Kartel alongside Lola Monroe and Candy Gloster. In between tracks, Bulby dropped knowledge about the art of Dub while RGAT witnessed a master at work. Video After The Jump… Read more »

Brand New Visuals Fi Di Ganja Man Dem

Born in Spanish Town, Jamaica Lutan Fyah studied architecture and played professional football before launching into a music career in 1999. Cutting early records for Buju Banton’s Gargamel label, he would go on to collab with such culturally inclined artists as Lucinano and Turbulence. On his latest release, produced by Tim Dub, Fyah goes beyond the usual ganja tune cliches, giving a botanical lesson on the definition of “trichomes” and how these small glandular hairs growing from the epidermis of herb buds relate to the cultivation of the cannabis plant.

HEAR THIS: Sizzla “Gwaan Bear”

Sizzla’s new album Ghetto Youth-Ology drops today, and it’s one of his best efforts in a while. All tracks were laid by the Firehouse Crew and there are lots of gems—”Premeditate” on the “Arena” riddim and “Stop It Right Now” come to mind—but “Gwaan Bear” is hitting me real hard today. Kalonji’s in the zone on this one. Just check the lyrics:

“From me navel string cut me nah lef’ the ghetto / Nuff ah them think in deh easy, but ah no really so / When we mind fi touch the gun me bredren holler no no no / Have we life inna we hand and we can’t too leggo / No touch the weapon we no ready fi dead yet / It won’t be too long for us to enjoy the best.”

Run the track…
