SIDE A is “PRESS BOOKFA PRESS,” a powerful strut, helmed by Portmore-local youth BOOKFA (Keniel Ellis) on a tite-pressed riddim by LA producer NICE-A-BUNKS (Aaron Coyes of Peaking Lights). Recorded late-nite in an unfinished house outside of Kingston, comes with a serious bounce. BUNKS generously unspools a twelve-minute scramble-DUPP’D VERSION, sending the vocals and various percussion into slow, looping orbits around the groove. Psyched roots madness.
SIDE B is pure fire from SPANISH TOWN and LOS ANGELES, local youth G SUDDEN (Okeme Robinson) voices “GIRLS DEM NEED MI” over the ultimate futurism of producer LA resident GENESIS HULL (Alex Gray of D/P/I). G SUDDEN lays proper styles between pop-a-lock claps and clear flame synths. Vocal is all LED-spinners and black-light ground EFX, but even further out is the extremely energetic 12 minute DUPP’D VERSION which flips into the ultraviolet, stretching the groove along the spectrum from footwork to jungle to some Escalade-rattling place beyond.
