Note from the Dubquake Label
Few are the selectors that can generate hype around a track like Mark Iration (Iration Steppas) has done with ‘Ubuntu Time’. A feel-good sound system anthem produced by Unlisted Fanatic that melds modern Afrobeats and Dub music. After getting rinsed on dubplate for months by some of the top sounds, then being released as a limited edition polyvinyl by Dub-Up Hifi, here’s ‘Ubuntu Time’ finally available on 12” vinyl, digital and streaming platforms for one and all to listen to without moderation.
Unlisted Fanatic’s ability to brilliantly marry styles is especially felt on the B side with ‘Black Man’; a class tribute to Fela Kuti, father of Afrobeat. The track is carried by Saah Karim’s militant chants that advocate for black liberation and empowerment, sublimed by brass melodies by the Moonshine Horns section.
