LICK IT BACK! - VARIOUS ARTISTS ALBUM
REGGAE ROAST RECORDS | CATALOGUE NO: RR007
Reggae Roast Records are proud to present the Lick It Back! compilation album. This 11 track release follows a string of widely popular singles on the Reggae Roast imprint which have seen support from both reggae lovers, DJs and music journalists alike. The Lick It Back! compilation is the second feature length offering from Reggae Roast, after their sell-out Roots Uprising compilation of December 2009.
The album features a selection of forthcoming Reggae Roast Records singles, some classic tracks from the label vaults, plus some of their favourite cuts from the past 12 months. The track list is typical of a Reggae Roast sound system selection. It features the type of conscious message, energy and vibes the crew have become synonymous with promoting, via weekly sets at top London clubs, rammed out festival sets and smoke filled warehouse dances.
Many of the tracks have already been tearing up the airwaves with full support on Kiss FM, 6Music and Rinse FM. The opening track ‘Reggae Music’, released on 12” vinyl in May this year was described as ‘truly awesome!’ by the godfather of UK reggae; Mr David Rodigan. The 4 track release received 5 star reviews from a long list of publications, paving the way for this momentous full-length release. Lick It Back! is destined for some heavy rotations over the summer months, blasting from speaker boxes & festival stages across the globe.
Reggae Roast is now one of the most vibrant, new reggae collectives in the UK and since 2007 they have been spreading their sound of conscious roots music across the globe. During this time they have contributed to some of the country’s greatest musical movements, including; Glastonbury, Fabric, Bestival, The Barbican, Jazz Café, The Big Chill, Camden Crawl, and Outlook Festival, while building a reputation as the freshest roots sound in town.
Following on from their guest show broadcast with David Rodigan on Kiss FM and with regular DJ bookings across Europe, founders Exel and Moodie now enjoy a bi-monthly residency event at The City Arts & Music Project Basement. Their ever popular basement session continues to promote the strength of real roots music and provides for the massive demand for a conscious and good natured club night. Previous guests include; Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Sly & Robbie, Finley Quaye, Mad Professor, Aba Shanti-I, Channel One Sound System, Iration Steppas and Adrian Sherwood to name a few.
