Back again with another Sound Mag Selections. This weekend we were in London at the Fox and Firkin. If you haven't yet been to this venue I would highly recommend paying it a visit. Through the day it is a cosy pub with a large garden to the back, but every so often they transform the space into a skanking hall. The owners and staff are huge fans of reggae and love promoting it. You will often find great line ups, and just general artists and singers passing through the venue.
The Grammys were on last night and the winner of the best reggae album went to SOJA, however this has sparked quite a lot of discussions, and many have said this choice is controversial. If you have an opinion, we would be interested to hear your thoughts.
Trouble by O.B.F feat. Lasai & Far East
O.B.F bring a fresh new roots tune, joining forces with Madrid based singer Lasai who compliments the single with his powerful lyrics “Put down the gun, put down the knife, put down the glock”.
This tune comes after the success of “Heavyweight Sound” and “Do Me Right”,
On the B-side, French melodica artist Far East adds his own special flavour to the dub version!

Jah Rule by Nucleus Roots feat. Simon Dan (Test Press)
In classic Partial Records fashion, they have resurrected another brilliant tune from the 90s/00s era.
Manchester's Nucleus Roots production is always solid and tough, as it is with Jah Rule, whilst Simon Dan's voice is very soulful, which makes a great combination.
On the other side there is also 'Let There Be Light' with Moses. The Test Press (10" pressed on 12") is limited.
