On the occasion of the tenth anniversary of Steppas Records, Alpha & Omega are signing up "Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego" back. Like its 2017 predecessor “One by One”, the album brings together five vocal tracks with associated ones Dubs in showcase style. Big surprises are not revealed: The British sound system pioneers serve established A&O listening habits in a mystical, monotonous and powerful bass garb. Musically adapted to current production possibilities, the tracks sound fresh, but still don't lose their typical A&O sound. Christine's live bass underlines the high quality of the audio. With Joseph Lalibela, Ras Tinny, Wellette Seyon, Danny Red and Nai-Jah, a cross-section of contemporary roots singers will come together. The latter, with his soft and plaintive voice on “Maisha”, is the highlight of the record. Joseph Lalibela processed, as usual apocalyptically, the story of the three Judean men of the album name in “Steppin in the Fyah”. According to the biblical story, they refused to kneel to the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar and survived the death penalty in a red-hot oven. The majority of the titles take up explicitly religious themes, such as “Jah is Here” and “Hail Him”. Wellette Seyon formulates her messages more abstractly in “Real Eyes Realize”. "Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego" provides solid sound system fodder for dance freaks and bass freaks and is available on vinyl, download and streaming.
