Up Bustle and Out - Urban Evacuation - download
The 6th Album by UB&ampO - Focusing on the movement from Jamaican Dub producers like King Tubbys to modern, cool UK urban grooves.
Studio sessions were originally pressed in Kingston, Jamaica as limited 7" singles, copies available by our 'Mailorder' link.
Sessions involved Latin percussionists, Double Bass by Jim Barr Portishead Band, UK, Jamaican DJ Youth, Jazz Blowers like Andy Sheppard & Andy Hague, Portuguese & Angolan Soul Singers, Dubby Indian beats by Nitin Sawhney, Dub Poets...The album's summation is in the title track. Urban life is chaos the moral fabric weak, the inability to live side by side still such a modern reality that Dub Poet Ras Jabulani advises us:
'' Leave the city, head to where it's clean / Head for a hilltop, it's too hot ''
'' To wake up on a glorious morning / Stretch and see the sun / Put water to I lips / Breath air to I mind...The simple soul that I am ''
