    SUMERR, the Jamaican female artist, who recently debuted with her album Downs District is back with a drum'n'bass remix of her track Head Up ft. Kumar.

    We already introduced upcoming singer on our pages and also did interview with her not that long time ago!




    We live in a time, when the verse “Keep ya head up” has more meaning than ever before. Known for their support to the youths and the community in general is also the most active soundsystem in the Balkans region – RootsInSession Soundsystem, based in Ljubljana/Slovenia, very known for mixing bass genres like reggae, drum'n'bass, hiphop, jungle and spreading positive messages at every ocassion.


    A perfect get-together of SumeRR’s vocal and RootsInSession’s vibe will put you in a confident and courageous mood. The remix starts with an original intro, in which SumeRR shares a clear message and shows that she is coming to the top of the reggae scene. The intro is followed by RootsInSession’s drop down and switch to straight jump-up drum’n’bass beat that continues with cuverball basslines and wobbles, while SumeRR’s vocals echo in your head “Head Up, Head Up …”


    The guitar inserts are played by Matej Huljev, who added the right dose of live riffs to the remix and the final sound image is provided by the penetrating drum'n'bass producer Filip Motovunski in his FM Mastering Studio in Zagreb/Croatia. Another proof why RootsInSession have been in the business for 20 years an still continue with joining forces with musician in the Balkan region and all over the globe, among which are artists like David Boomah, Kiril Dzajkovski, Dubioza Kolektiv, Edo Maajka, Brain Holidays to name a few.

    Glasgow's Tom Spirals and the outer-national 4'20 Sound are serving up a deep mellow roots style for their first cross-continent release.



    "If We Got Here Easy" originated as a simple acoustic love song, written by Tom Spirals on his recent tour in Australia and was recorded with the help of the 4'20 Sound live band, featuring T.K on double bass and Chelsea Sky-Eater & Empress Katia on backing vocals, at the Sky-Eater studios in the rolling foothills of the Northern Rivers hinterlands. 

    Since the recording session in January of 2020, 4'20's head honcho, Oren Selecta has perfected the production to create a deep yet gentle, heartwarming roots release. Spirals' warm tone and a lazy-hazy flow adds to the warm sunshine sounds with lyrics to celebrate reaping the benefits of your patience and a heartfelt nod of acknowledgement to the rocky path of long-distance lovers. 


    (From Tom Spirals Facebook)


    The 4'20 Sound and Tom Spirals first met at the internationally-renowned club night Walk n Skank in Glasgow, where Spirals is the residence MC, in 2017. They maintained the link, and three years on have performed together extensively across the UK, Europe, New Zealand and Australia. Its with great pleasure we present to you their first official release.





     "Served with the recommend consumption guidelines of keep chilled and enjoy alongside a generous dose of sunshine."

    Award-winning Bristol lyricist, MC and label owner Gardna is about to embark on the biggest project of his career so far. His debut album ‘Good Time Not A Long Time’ is set to land on the 18th October and features 12 original tracks and a who’s who of featured artists and reggae and dub royalty. The first single and title track ‘Good Time Not A Long Time’  was released on Friday 11th October.
    Produced by the mighty Brad Baloo of The Nextmen (and producer credits to Mungo’s Hi-Fi, Kreed, Coki, and Gold Dubs), ‘Good Time Not A Long Time Time  destroys genre boundaries from the get-go. Delving into the world of reggae, dub, grime, hip-hop and everything in between, it’s a culmination of Gardna’s already extensive career, and demonstrates incredible abilities as a songwriter, lyricist, host and MC. With a little help from the likes of Hollie Cook, Kiko Bun, Eva Lazarus, Omar, Fox, Dread MC, Charli Brix, Rider Shafique and Taiwan MC, it showcases talent on both a fresh and legendary scale and provides an inimitable sound from start to finish.


    On creating the record Gardna added:

    “Good Time Not A Long Time’ is a summary of my personal experiences within music. Be that good times, long times or anything in between I wanted to create an album that gives the listener both lyrically and musically an insight as to what it's like to be a young man growing up in Bristol and travelling the world in front and behind a sound system. ‘Good Time Not A Long Time’ is also an expression made amongst people when they are somewhere for a short amount of time and they want to make the most out of their time being there. Most of these songs were written on the road, during busy show periods, in between the late nights, early mornings and all the rest. I'm always up and on to the next place, so I figured that it sums up the album pretty well. I've had the privilege to work with some of my musical heroes, as well as some of my favourite new artists on this. It's been an honour to have their support on my first long player.”
    Often championed by some of the biggest names in the business; David Rodigan, MistaJam, Steve Lamacq, Don Letts, Toddla T and Huw Stephens to name a few, Gardna’s impact on the Bristol music scene has expanded to just about every corner of the country and it’s easy to hear why. Over the last few years alone he joined forces with Gentleman’s Dub Club and The Nextmen to perform on four of the tracks on their ‘Pound For Pound’ record, in fact the lead single ‘Rudeboy’ racked up plays across BBC Radio 1, 6 Music and made it’s way into Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist.
    As well as flexing his studio muscle lately, Gardna’s reputation on the live circuit has resulted in hosting and performing across the UK and beyond for close to 10 years now. His incredible energy and downright likeability hasn’t gone unnoticed, and to celebrate the new album release he’ll be touring globally over the next few months.
