Wanted Remix Album review by Walshy Selecta
Hot on the heels of the Tonight E.P, Chopstick Dubplate return with a Remix album sure to wet the appetite of the seasoned Junglist, this album crosses from Jungle to Dub in fine style and fashion with a track selection that goes like this,
- Worldwide traveller – Aries and Murda remix
The Junglist anthem of recent times gets a 2016 re-lick, love this one to the bone, ultra crisp production and the classic vocal from the legendary Top cat and Mr Williamz, you can’t go wrong, a familiar tune for the dancefloor.
- Tell mi who – Gold Dubs remix
Fairplay to Gold Dubs, maximum big ups for the way he is rolling! If you have been following Gold Dubs then you know what I’m saying, if not then you are in for a pleasant surprise, one of my personal stand out tracks of the album.
- Girls dem dada – Dope Ammo remix
One of the more upbeat tracks of the album, Mr Williamz vocal given the Dope Ammo treatment, bringing the slightly jump up flavours into the Reggae Jungle mix. Top marks, ten out of ten 🙂
- All over town – Marcus Visionary remix
This one delivers from the off, top vocals, crisp beat and bubbling bassline, expect nothing less from man like Marcus Visionary, another toppa top remix to add to his ever growing list of high quality productions.
- Have you ever – King Yoof remix
What can I say but yes please, thank you very much. Mr Williamz and Mr Dennis Brown given the King Yoof touch. Expect Big feel good Reggae vibes, defo one to drop for the ladies.
- Holla fi we – Tuff and Powa remix
Niceness! This one comes out of the traps ready for action, Mr Williamz vocal rolls along perfect with the fresh beats provided by Tuff and Powa, I cant wait to give this one a blast on a big soundsystem to test out that Bassline which has got potential to cause damage, and remids me of flat Eric, but block up 🙂
- Holla fi we – Jman remix
Full of energy from the off, with a nice breakdown before we step into the full blown Jungle steppa, sure to keep the dance bubbling, rolling vocals, big bassline and beats to match, jman representing in fine style.
8. Wanted – K Jah remix
Mr Williamz meets K-Jah = Top Notch.
k-Jah’s tunes have been smashing up Jungle dances all over the place, and this track is no exception to the rule. Nice intro leads us into a big rolling bassline accompanied by a lazy (in a good way) beat with all the effects and detail in all the right places! Another personal stand out tune of the album, as all you Junglists know, K-jah is on fire right now!
- Rumble jumble life – Kings Hi-Fi remix
Ending the album on most chilled out track. Big bass on a dubwise tip, very well produced tune screaming to be played out loud on a hot summers day, for now you’ll have to crank up the central heating and close your eyes and think of summer as this one was made to bring sunshine into your life 🙂 Big Up Kings Hi-Fi.
Well there you have it, 9 tracks of pure Chopstick goodness, a surefire addition to any Jungle/Reggae DJ’s selection.
Big Respect to Chopstick Dubplate and all kru involved putting this album together! #Salute
