a banging batch of multi-layered dancehall tracks inspired by the complex historical links between his hometown, Vernasca, with Jamaica, & Italy’s colonial past in Ethiopia.
The results weigh in remarkably close to the colourful, plugged-in dancehall art/science of Equiknoxx, effectively pulling together the diffracted aspects of his project into a direct yet psychedelically-charged set that strongly reverberates with its roots. Keener observers will be quick to identify the amazing ‘Nazenet (Wasp Rhythm)’ as a vocal version of STILL’s uncredited ‘Untitled’ riddim from Halcyon veil’s ‘Conspiración Progresso’ compilation, but unless you’ve been listening to Bill Kouligas DJ sets, the rest is all new & exclusive, taking in the weightless prayer of ‘Haile Selassie Is The Micro-Chip’, wobbly acid hall knocks in ‘Bubbling Ambessa’, & the meter-messing flux of ‘Rough Rider’ along with style recalling that Vipra ace on Presto!? in ‘Banzina’, plus the warped Bionic Ras bumps of ‘Gozpaal’ & some seriously salty dubbing in the plasmic squeeze of ‘Mangrovia’.
