joshua moses

rise up

bristol archive


Released: 20th Feb 2012


if you’ve been following the bristol archives' label you’ll recognize ‘rise up’ from the excellent bristol reggae explosion, vol.

2 compilation. this is top-quality roots reggae. moses' voice is smooth & strong, sometimes strongly reminiscent of johnny clarke's, backed with the dub version. ‘rise up’ is taken from the retrospective album ‘joshua to jashwa: 30 years in the wilderness’. at the peak of his powers, moses was both deeply rooted in the traditional reggae verities & a truly unique vocalist & songwriter -- a combination both counterintuitive & wonderful.
