Two of Jamaica’s most exciting and groundbreaking new DJ / Production outfits combine for this as bashment experimentalists Equiknoxx Music link up with Addis Pablo from Suns Of Dub (who will be performing on the Lion’s Den at this year’s Boomtown) for the Majestic Melodies Mixtape.
Addis follows in the tradition of his father Augustus Pablo with his melodica skills floating over dub and roots tracks, in this case sampling and re-interpretating tracks from the likes of Bob Marley, Sugar Minott, and Dillinger to Drake and Dr Dre.
The mixtape also includes features and collaborations from many rare and emerging artists, as well as established artists, including – Earl 16, Shanique Marie, Akane, Cali P, Exile Di Brave, Tesfa Zion, Mr Williams, Lila Ike, Ulo, Earl Zero and Petayan.
Majestic Melodies is the first solo mixtape from Addis Pablo following his 2014 debut album ‘In My Fathers House’. The mixtape precedes the official Majestic Melodies EP release of all original productions, to be released later this year. Here’s the first video from that release also.
