Jamaican-based dancehall music group Equiknoxx Bird Sound Power is one of Boomkat’s albums of the year, which the site describes as “a paradox, utterly fwd but classic, and with as much potential to turn new heads onto current JA sounds as Mowax’s Now Thing set back in 2001.”

While most of the tracks were recorded this year, the oldest riddim goes as far back as 2009. Wicked, next-level stuff at any age.

Favorite tracks: Last of the Mohicans, Timebird, Someone Flagged It Up

Ash Walker Music – Dark Hour

Ash Walker is right: ‘They do not now yet.’

The world is just getting a taste of this emerging talent out of London who is trying to revive the sounds of trip-hop that Massive Attack and Portishead pioneered in their heyday. His latest drop ‘Dark Hour’ continues his overall downtempo vibe.

Signed to underground dub label Deep Heads, known for a library of other tasty releases from label head Zed Bias, Walker released his debut album Augmented 7 last year. The album incorporated elements of dub, reggae, and downtempo all tied to a jazz tone.  Take a listen to the collaboration with soul singer Segilola below.

PS. Walker’s music also sounds a bit like Smith & Mighty who released this dub-infused bombtune back in 1995.
