about

I first met Naph-Tali in 1988, years before I started the label. I was a regular visitor to Vibes Studio in East London where Blacka the owner & Keety Roots his good bredren produced a lot of dubplates for Jah Warrior sound system. Vibes was like a centre for roots in East London & it was involved in other things besides recording. There was a dubplate cutting service there and also a short lived pirate radio station at one time. I met a number of people there including Tena Stelin plus Mixman of Blakamix. You could say this was the real early days of the UK roots scene. Tena Stelin’s first ever release was for Vibes and I had a number of his tunes recorded there on dubplate, including some tunes which he later voiced on different riddims for Manasseh. Tena had voiced a few personal specials for me and one day I went to Vibes for another voicing session with him & got there to find he’d brought Naph-Tali along. Naph-Tali was relatively unknown then & Tena wanted to give him a chance by linking him with me. We got on well together & he voiced a few tunes for me. I liked his style & he had a good voice. As time progressed we did more works together, mostly dubplates for the sound but also a couple of tunes for the Zulu Warriors album. Naph-Tali’s first release Hole Up Your Hand came on Vibes label and he was working with Keety Roots too. As Vibes came to a halt, we stayed in touch and when I started Jah Warrior label he was the natural choice for the first release on the label, The 22nd Book 12” in 1995. It was well received & got a lot of airplay on radio plus a lot of play by Aba Shanti and a few other sounds. Over the next few years we did more recordings. Naph-Tali was always very particular about his voicing and if he wasn’t happy with the way it came out he’d go and do it again and again until it was perfect.
Most of the One Of These Days album was recorded at the third incarnation of Conscious Sounds which was in Dougie’s attic in his house. There’ve actually been 5 different locations for Conscious Sounds to date and I’ve worked in all of them. Naph-Tali voiced a few tunes for me at the second studio which was briefly located in Camden Town but these were specials for the sound and not for release. We did a small amount of work at the 4th studio in Dalston. The album was released in 1998 and was also well received. As well as different cuts of The 22nd Book it also features alternative cuts of another single, Pollution.
Visionary Dream from the album was recently reissued on 7 inch by Partial Records with a previously unreleased dub. The album’s sold out on vinyl but it’s still available on CD or can be downloaded from Bandcamp.
