This week: Tribute To Gregory Isaacs with Deadly Dragon Sound and Plenty of guests!!!!!!!!!!!!

New DDS exclusive 7" : Cornel Campbell & Daddy U-Roy : Babylon You Wrong.‏




Zion High Productions is pleased to bring veterans Cornel Campbell and U Roy together for their first in-studio vocal collaboration: “Babylon You Wrong” – which includes a radio mix and dub version. The tune hearkens back to reggae’s golden age of the 1970s, while keeping a firm footing in some true contemporary vibes. “Babylon You Wrong” is led by the cool and deadly vibes of Cornel Campbell the singer and U Roy the deejay. The two stalwarts of reggae face off against Babylon while airy horn solos spar with smart percussion and driving bass lines. Although this tune is their first studio effort together, U-Roy’s toasting talents and Cornel Campbell’s throwback vibe compliment each other perfectly. Limited clear vinyl press of 500pcs!

EVR 10/25 - Tribute to Gregory Isaacs + Spragga Benz Live in the Studio!

This week we paid tribute in the first hour to the Cool Ruler in the only way we knew...digging deep into the vaults for some of Gregory Isaac's tunes that have most touched our hearts. Even though I, Scratch Famous, totally blundered by not playing "Babylon Too Rough" the vibe was nice and sweet!





For the second hour, Spragga Benz joined us in the studio to preview his new album "Shotta Culture," talk about some history and throw down a few freestyles. He was a super nice guy, so bless up Spragga and thanks for passing thru!

Gregory Isaacs 1951 - 2010

In a year when so many veterans have passed away, I have to admit I was totally surprised when I heard that Gregory Isaacs had died after a long battle with lung cancer. It always struck me that Gregory was one of those characters who spent soo long on the edge that I, as well as so many other people, just assumed that he could and would survive anything; so that, once he passed, we were all caught a bit unawares. And being caught unawares made us (or at least me) look back at his music with a fresh eye...And what music! Gregory had a unique and eccentric voice -- no one else sounded like him and try as they may, he had no imitators. From lovers to roots to the digital BOOMshots of the 80s and 90s, he put his stamp on timeless tunes with a plaintive lonliness that will wail away forever in the winds of our musical history.
