Bass Culture Players - Foundation EP

I can’t let this one pass without blogging about it. On a few occasions now I’ve used everythingsgonegreen to highlight some of the exceptional dub and roots music coming out of mainland Europe, and this name-your-price Bandcamp release is yet another prime example of that.

Bass Culture Players is a collective of dub devotees operating out of Madrid, Spain, and the Foundation EP contains four top notch tracks, plus a (dub) version for each. It features several different vocalists and the music itself is an infectious blend of classic roots and contemporary dub.
It’s difficult to identify a favourite track on the EP but I have to say that Payoh Soul Rebel’s vocal on opener ‘Forgiveness’ is a stand-out, and his voice sounds a little bit like the perfect hybrid of Lee Perry and Bob Marley himself.

Truly wonderful stuff.
