You Should Have Known Riddim 2017

Official Release Date : 17th April 2017




The riddim “lick over” or the “relick” is so embedded in dancehall culture that it’s become the norm to revisit the past and bring it to the present. Such is the case that in the 80’s it was almost a rarity to score a “hit” with an original backing track.

In the first half of the 1980s these riddims generally consisted of vintage B-sidetracks from Coxsone Dodd’s Studio One or, to a lesser extent, Duke Reid’s TreasureIsle studio. Riddims of some songs, like ‘Real Rock’, ‘Nanny Goat’, ‘Mad Mad’, and‘General’ (all from 1967) and ‘Heavenless’, ‘African Beat’, and ‘Full Up’ (from 1968).

Having said all that ZigeDub presents the “You Should Have Known Riddim Relick” which is a rehashed version of the old Studio One backing track for Joe Riley’s “You Should Have Known”.

Bringing together talented artists from United Kingdom, Jamaica, Kenya , Nigeria, United States to grace this riddim in fine style.We believe it’s a compilation that all reggae lovers who appreciate some good Rub-A-Dub will surely love.

EP Review; Device The EP

By: ZigeDub


Device the EP is a soulful reggae album that epitomises how real authentic reggae music should sound. With a variety of unique styles and abundance of excellent production and musical talent.

Jah Device has a powerful voice which overflows with emotion and truth. Rebirth starts the EP with a bang, with rifts reminiscent of Majek Fashek back in the early 90s.

Next up is Black People (why) which gives that rootsy vibe, showcasing Jah Device’s vocal abilities with a rhythm track that compliments his laid back style.

The third track of the EP Give Praises makes good use of the “Blind To You” Rhythm made popular by Collie Buddz in 2007. Arguably a contender for the best track on the EP.

Enough Is Enough is a solid inclusion with a rhythm track which is subtle but effective laced with a groove that can get you bopping your head and tapping your feet.

I love the message on the next track Never Let You Down showing Jah Device’s faith in the most high. Overflowing with kindness and good energy, the kind of song you start the day with.

Then comes in Wok Nimoshis Mot (Have Mercy)with a powerful rhythm track, sung in his native tongue (Berom from Jos, Plateau State in Nigeria).

The song captures the real essence of Africa and gives you a real insight to what Jah Device is all about.

A personal favourite comes up next Smile For Me which makes good use of Jetstar’s version of the Columbus Rhythm originally made popular by Burning Spear back in the day.

Exquisite tunes on this EP, each possessing its own unique expression of talent which I truly endorse.
