What used to be marveled at as a curiosity is now a matter of course: roots reggae and Dub have found their home in all corners of the world. This is also the case in the Chinese Sichuan province, where the seven-piece combo JahWahZoo got together to play surprisingly authentic-sounding reggae. her debut soon"zoo party“ and his Dub-Counterpart "Zoo Dubby" were produced on site by Nick Manasseh - which certainly allows conclusions to be drawn about the musical ability of the band.
The second album was - no less amazingly - a collaboration with I Kong, the veteran of the Jamaican Kong family, not unknown in the reggae universe, with Chinese roots. "Zoo to the Roots“ was released in 2020 and can be heard because of the successful tunes: Roots to the core, made in Chengdun.
In good old tradition is now (finally) the corresponding Dub-Album released: "Zoo to the Dub“ – due to a lack of Mandarin knowledge, I not only have to fit the name of the label, but also the other details about the production. Research suggests that Skunga Kong - son of I Kong - was at the mixing desk; one or the other reader may know more precisely and share it here. Ultimately, what counts is what is found in our auditory canals; and that is finely mixed Dub, which is based on solid, hand-made riddims.
There are two recommendations for this - one, to fully commit to “Zoo to the Dub“ to let in and to the Dubs to please; the other recommendation would be to revisit the I Kong oeuvre - the vocal release 'Zoo to the Roots' offers a fitting start.
