Roots Tonic

World - Reggae/Carribean

12 scorching tracks from the legendary singer/songwriter of Stubborn All-Stars & Skinnerbox. On his newest album “Roots Tonic,” Django has enlisted an all-star cast of NYC’s finest ska/reggae veterans. The result: twelve crucial roots reggae cuts utilizing tuff original riddims, complex lyrical structures, and combinations with Rocker T and Dr Ring Ding. Musically, “Roots Tonic” harkens back to the positive, political reggae of the late 70’s / early 80’s spearheaded by legendary imprints Island, Frontline, Trojan, Heartbeat, On-U Sound and Greensleeves. That was a time when songwriting was key, conscious lyrics reigned supreme and reggae music was live and full of soul. “Dancehall” was in its infancy and still resembled reggae, unlike its mostly American hip-hop and R&B influences today. So sit back, take a heavy drink – its 100% organic -- soak up Reggae’s energy, strength, and soul with our cure-all: KING DJANGO’s “Roots Tonic” on JUMP UP / Stubborn Records! Covering a wide range of styles including dark, sultry lovers rock, militant rockers, crisp rub-a-dub deejay, psychedelic dub and even niyabinghi, King Django delivers his finest roots reggae masterpiece to date. With riddims performed by Version City Rockers and guest appearances from Rocker-T. and Dr. Ring Ding, Roots Tonic soothes and invigorates! 1. Its All Over 2. Hard, Hard Thing 3. Fistful a Riddim 4. Too Many Things 5. In This Time 6. No Trial (featuring Rocker T) 7. Rock and Come In (featuring Dr. Ring Ding) 8. Lyrics Architect 9. New York Neighbors 10. The Bottle 11. Zion Gates 12. Wayfarers Prayer (featuring Rocker T)
