12″ Maxi Single
Early Days Records

Lovers of early digital roots will be well chuffed with the third installment by Early Days Records. This Parisian label run by Mistah P saw its premiere releases last year, with a pair of popular hits packed on a red 12″ by veteran Michael Palmer. This was quickly followed by the second 12″, with lyrical maestro, Trevor Junior’s brilliant ‘Music is Magic’.

After the cool European winter, plus Mistah P’s subsequent trip to Jamaica, the label has surfaced again, this time with the top single ‘Crab Dem’. This is a stunning new vocal cut from Jamaican veteran Cocoa Tea, on a riddim which flashes straight back 3 decades to the sounds of Jamaican dancehalls.

Sweet Cocoa Tea comes with a lyrical artillery warning of users and abusers, which might take its roots from the Jamaican saying “Crab inna Bucket”.  The discomix is followed by a heavy dub by Cisko and Mistah P on the flip, making this a highly attractive 12″.
