about

A cathartic soundtrack to 2020, “Babylon Soon Fall” virtual 45 vinyl drops 10/30/20 on Bandcamp with "Champion Sound" as a B side. Full EP coming everywhere in November. Musical victory to make oppression crumble and spirits rise. ”Babylon, Your whole entire system soon fall down!” A message from Brooklyn to the world, echoing a long tradition started in Screechy Dan’s birthplace Trenchtown, Jamaica, of chanting down corruption through song. In this case, incantation is done by voice, by the banging of the drums, by earthquaking bass vibrations, and by howling saxophones. "Dub Shall Live" & "Wicked Man Soon Fall" capture the energy of Subatomic's live improvisational dub performances, with reckless amounts of congas and dragon fire horns. Brought to you by the same Subatomic Sound System lineup as on Lee “Scratch” Perry’s acclaimed “Super Ape Returns To Conquer” album and the 2020 boomshot single “Champion Sound”, this has been a big tune live for years on Subatomic tours that many selectors have been asking to get in their record box. Jamaican percussion legend Larry McDonald is on the congas & shakers
