Boomkat Product Review:
Naturally avant 1986 digi-dub madness by Frankie B bubbles back up on DINTE’s 333 series
First dispatched to the dance by the Ital Stuff label in early ’86 and practically out of sight ever since, ‘Pressure Me’ is arguably the definition of a UK digi-dub diamond. Original copies understandably trade for top dollar, making this reissue utterly unmissable for the fiends, and anyone who can trace the links between ‘80s soundsystem science to Yorkshire bleep techno, early London rave and hardcore, jungle, ambient club and forms of concentrated deep techno, especially in that lethal dub. 100% deadly. Woiiiii!
“Frankie B began his recording career with producer Bert Douglas, first releasing on his Reggae City label in 1984 with the No More Tears 7" under his birth name Franklyn Bernard. In 1985 he then linked up with Ital Stuff - a production team consisting of three brothers who also helmed the Sweet & Bitter Band. Operating a small eight track studio in the basement of their house in Balham, Ital Stuff had recently been responsible for putting together and laying down the backing track to Dixie Peach's classic Pure Worries, released on the Jah Tubbys label in 1985. Upon playing Pure Worries to Frankie he was immediately inspired to lay down his own vocal on the track, which too features Dixie Peach contributing vocal harmonies - it was recorded late 1985 and mixed down along with a ferocious dub side at South London's A Class Studio, eventually seeing release in early 1986.”
