#themusicologist [794] Lord Creator – Such is Life

Fork in the road 7

One of my most cherished early reggae cuts courtesy of the incredible Kentrick ‘Lord Creator’ Patrick who, [at the time of this recording], was rediscovered ‘living’ up a tree in Jamaica..

SUCH is LIFE

[S]HE WHO LIVES it KNOWS it..everyone else is a SPECULATOR/commentator.

Everton Blender – Dem Fight I

Around 1993 themusicologist was once again focused on the sounds coming out of Jam Down after a 5-6 year sabbatical spent soaking up the sounds of London, Chi’, The Motor City, NYC and Europa.

For me the years between 1992 – 1998 were a ‘golden age’ for the Reggae. SO many top drawer, conscious, deep cuts emerged with the new wave of ‘computerised’.

Not that Jamaica didn’t embrace the ‘digital’ many years before. Everyone who knows can point to cuts [especially those from the hands of the mighty Prince Jammy] that tore up the dance a decade before but the 90’s cuts coming out of labels like exterminator, penthouse, harmony house, Digital B, How Yuh Fi Say That and MANY more one and two shot labels drew not only on the global musical landscape but also and MOST importantly the ‘democratisation’ of music production that had emerged.

Some MASSIVE works were waxed during them years and themusicologist was on them cuts like a rash back then. Consuming box after box after box, week after week, month after month, year after year.

A Few cuts on this Rhythm. This is one of my favourites. Reminds me of them days.
