A brand new 7″ out of the A-Lone Ark Studio in the north of Spain, this tune rocked the opening night of the recent Rototom Dubstation. The moment the drum lick begins you will know why.

The story of both the group and the song are a lovely one. The band behind this heavy-hitting roots tune is The Producers. They are made up of several top roots, steppas, digital, and dub producers from around Europe, and they recently launched with a successful Milton Henry show in Spain.

Members are Don Fe on piano and organs, Prince Jamo on guitar, Roberto Sanchez on bass and organ, Dubby Ambassah on percussion, Roberto Bartolomé on lead guitar, and finally Genis Trani on drums.

Produced, recorded, and mixed by Roberto Sanchez at A-Lone Ark Muzik Studio in Cueto-Spain, this is one of the first two tracks to drop by the crew. It features on the new Earl Sixteen album set for release in the next few months on Iroko.

The literally delicious-sounding-lyrics of this song are in fact a dedication by Earl Sixteen to a man called Juicy Black, who fed the nation of Jamaica. Juicy Black was a saintly, cult figure, who must have had an impact on much of the country’s music industry. Prince Jamo told a great story in an interview we did at the 2013 Rototom Festival, about how every time Earl revisits the island he pays homage to the Jamaican foodsman.

As mentioned earlier there will be an Earl Sixteen and Producers album released in the next few months, as well as an album voiced by Prince Jamo.

You can listen to the tune on the Iroko website, and you will hear it for sure on Saturday 21 September at Havana Bar, by yours truly at the next Wake the Town session.
