about

In 2003 I was contacted by The Age Of Venus Records, a French label who were mainly involved in releasing punk and hardcore music but who now wanted to expand into reggae too. They’d heard about me and wanted to release a various artists CD so I chose some material and licensed an album to them called Warrior Style, featuring artists like Earl Sixteen, Ranking Joe, Peter Broggs and more along with dubs. As well as the CD they also decided to release 3 seven inch singles taken from the material, one of which featured Lutan Fyah.
Lutan Fyah was one of the newer Bobo Dread artists in Jamaica at that time. He was a good bredren of Jah Mason who I’d already been working with for a couple of years and that’s how I was introduced to him, via the guy who was handling Jah Mason in America at the time. I didn’t really know much about Lutan the first time we linked but I was very much into working with the Bobo artists. I appreciated their fiery militant style of lyrics and I loved the combination of these fresh from yard young Jamaican artists on the UK roots riddims.
The first time Lutan came to the studio was around 2002 and he voiced one tune for me. We kept in touch and arranged further sessions the next time he visited England. I liked what he was doing and I think he liked my music too so we agreed to record a full album. Eventually, over an extended period of time, we worked out enough material for the project.
This track began life on a steppers riddim which was never released and was kept as a raw drum and bass tune. But in time we remixed and reworked some of the riddims and we turned this one from a steppers into an uptempo one drop. Lutan turned in some brimstone and fire militant lyrics, raging against the injustices of society and its effects on the poor strugglers. Everyone loved it when it was released on vinyl in 2004, and later on the Warrior Style album.

Taken from the various artists album "Warrior Style" and also released as a 7 inch single by The Age Of Venus Records. Produced by Jah Warrior. Recorded and mixed at Conscious Sounds in London.
