Rastar Ursula 1000 Rmx--Nappy Riddem
~the good dudes over at Fort Knox Five were kind enough to send over a promo copy of a track called Nappy Riddem by Rastar...heres what they have to say....
The new act on Fort Knox Recordings, Nappy Riddem, is the Ragga-psychodelic funk project comprised of producer/DJ Rex Riddem, Fort Knox Five & Thunderball vocalist Mustafa Akbar, and Thievery Corporation Bassist Ashish ‘Hash’ Vyas.
Rastar is the new single from our upcoming label compilation The New Gold Standard 2, due out November 3rd, 2009 on Fort Knox Recordings. Nappy Riddem represents strongly with deep ska stepping on Rastar. A tune that incorporates Rex’s Prince-like vocals, melded with skank reggae guitars courtesy of Rob Myers (Fort Knox Five / International Velvet), and an infectious hook from soulful crooner, Mustafa Akbar. With Hash’s bouncing funk bassline, and a dubbed out breakdown, we introduce the new era of the Rasta Rockstar…. The Rastar!
definitely some heat for the dancefloor...grab it here for free!!
