"Beat The System" ft. Soultrain - Jah Seal / Al Dubb (RCola remix) by RCola published on 2010/02/06 18:41:47 +0000 RCola "Rub A Dub Wize" (Wikkid Records / Royal Crown) "Based out of Montreal, Canada, RCola has been producing for over ten years; amassing a staggering discography and loyal fans the world over. His multi-faceted experience as a producer, re-mixer and DJ are reinforced by his seemingly instinctive ability to make the best of each vocalist and collaborator." "Though he traces his inspiration back to the reggae and dub music from the traveling soundsystems of Jamaica's Coxsone Dodd and Duke Reid, it is RCola's deep immersion in the irresistible up-tempo pace of the contemporary genre of drum ‘n bass that continues to inform his patented uplifting ragga-jungle production style." "RCola's willingness to track down and collaborate with his favourite vocalists is quite rare nowadays. His dedication to recording fresh, original vocals, working with session musicians, and creating music that showcases live instrumentation and real-time recording values, results in his creation of a dynamic and timeless music." "Stellar remixes of The Wailers' classic "Kinky Reggae", Trans-Global Underground's 2008 hit "Dancehall Operator", and Franco-Iraqi dub-hop outfit Aiwa's "Azeri" and "Skimalja" featuring Jamalski are all given the complete treatment; finding a new home nestled in the soundscapes of RCola's signature grooves, and fueling his crossover appeal. His remix work has also afforded reggae greats Barrington Levy, Sister Nancy, and Jimmy Riley an opportunity to shine in a fresh new light." "Rub A Dub Wize" establishes RCola as a bona-fide producer in the truest sense. This full-length artist album does for Jungle / Drum and Bass what Nasa or Blue Sky Black Death did for hip hop and Thievery Corporation have done for downtempo: bringing together a variety of artists and sounds to create a modern day fusion project curated by an omniscient hand at the mixing console."
