TT001 – STEPPIN MY GANJA RIDDIM

 

TruthTown Productions is a new project & label led by two reggae lovers from Euskal Herria (Basque Country): David González & Gorka Hoyos.

We are proud to present the kick-off release for this brand new independent label, featuring the classic “Smoking My Ganja” riddim, originally written & composed in the 70’s by the well known roots reggae band Capital Letters, inna hard UK steppa stylee for this time.

On side A, the listener will find an extended version of “Chemical Food” by the great singer, musician & producer Roberto Sánchez, owner of A-Lone Ark Muzik Studio, in Santander (Spain). The lyrics fight against the new fashion way of food productions, which is no less than another proved fact of the violence that capitalism puts into our lives.

Continuing with this same subject, on the other side, US deejay Ranking Forrest brings you the toaster effort: “Give Me Ital Stew”. Rait?? Ras Telford closes this release with his sweet and inspiring melodica version, “Sounds Of Deva”.

Here you can listen to a sample of both sides:
