Boomkat Product Review:
Bokeh Versions and Duppy Gun come correct once more with this bumper collection of digi-dancehall and piquant roots from their regular collaborator I Jahbar's Roolings Muzik stable. Vocals from Buddy Don, Datermin, G Sudden, Ryveela, Militant, RDL Shellah, Singer Heights and of course I Jahbar.
'Rollings Muzik Allstars' sweeps up the best moments from I Jahbar's Roolings Muzik imprint and compiles them into an entry point for anyone new to the Jamaican studio. It showcases the range of the music, frothing thru chaotic dancehall, digi-roots and sizzling dub, all the more impressive for being recorded while I Jahbar was working as a professional footballer. Thankfully he found enough time to pitch in at the studio, and his recordings - particularly the anthemic 'Eye a War' - are worth the asking price alone.
But the compilation doesn't stop there, there's unsettling bass-heavy '00s haunted electro ragga sounds from Buddy Don, bouncy dancehall from Datermin, DIY clatter from G Sudden, and a slew of dub versions from Militant, RDL Shellah, Ryveela and Singer Heights.
