AT
A NEIGHBORHOOD BAR BACK IN TULSA
THEY GOT A LONG NECK BOTTLE
WAITIN’ JUST FOR ME
AND MY WIFE, SHE RE-MARRIED BACK IN TULSA
BUT
SOMETIMES I STILL HEAR HER THINKING OF ME

(Bridge)
SINCE I
LEFT THE PLACE JUST HASN’T BEEN THE SAME
BUT TULSA HERSELF HAS NOT
FORGOTTEN ME
I LEFT MY MARK SURE AS THE SUN SETS
BUT TULSA, SHE
REMEMBERS ME
3

THREE HUNDRED MILES OUT OF TULSA
IN ’53 A
PICKUP BLEW THE LIGHT
AND TODAY I PINE FOR MY STOLEN LIFE
YOU
KNOW MY GRAND KIDS ARE OLDER THAN ME

(Bridge)

SINCE I
LEFT THE PLACE JUST HASN’T BEEN THE SAME
BUT TULSA HERSELF HAS NOT
FORGOTTEN ME
I LEFT MY MARK SURE AS THE SUN SETS
BUT TULSA, SHE
REMEMBERS ME
BUT TULSA, SHE REMEMBERS ME
BUT TULSA, SHE
REMEMBERS ME
I SAID THAT TULSA REMEMBERS ME

Video Premiere: C-Money – “Calling Me”

Posted in Reggae Roots Music | Comments Off on Video Premiere: C-Money – “Calling Me”

This is the first track off of Raised Fist Records by C-Money (John Brown’s Body/Slightly Stoopid) which features a remix of R. Kelly’sYour Body is Calling” Manu Chao “Cumbia.” The track is called “Calling Me” and it was recorded and Mixed at legendary Skip Saylor Studios.
Here’s what C-Money had to say regarding the track: “”When I was in Slightly Stoopid and lived in Ocean Beach, I would walk everywhere. One day walking back from Miles house I had R Kelly’s ‘Your Body is Calling Me’ on a playlist right before Manu Chao’s ‘Mentira.’ I love both those songs so I was repeating them and they had similar tempos so I started singing one over the other. I had a solo show coming up at Winston’s and decided to add it to the set. It was a perfect sexy reggae jam to drop! People loved the beat and the multi-lingual aspect so I kept it in the set. That was 6 years ago! Jeff Pliskin suggested we record it as the premier release on his new record label Raised Fist Records. I was already in the studio working on new songs so we finished the recording in 4 days. This song has become a staple of our live set and one that gets people dancing every time!” Stay tuned for a follow up on the creation of Jeff Pliskin’s Raised Fist Records. Enjoy the song video…

Matisyahu Collaborates with Salt Cathedral

Posted in Reggae Roots Music | Comments Off on Matisyahu Collaborates with Salt Cathedral

On November 2nd, 2016, Salt Cathedral released their latest track “Unraveling” featuring world-renowned reggae and hip-hop artist Matisyahu. Salt Cathedral is a Brooklyn-based indie, electro-pop duo formed by Juliana Ronderos and Nicolas Losada.
saltcathedral
The pair, originally from Colombia, have been making waves with their signature brand of dreamy, indie-pop. They have a sound that is simultaneously subtle and striking. The collaboration on “Unraveling” with fellow Brooklynite Matisyahu breaks the mold for both artists, but the outcome is an undeniably catchy song.

For Matisyahu, it’s his first track ever recorded with a woman, stemming from traditions held in his Hassidic beliefs.

Matisyahu will be performing a number of East Coast shows to close out 2016, and Salt Cathedral will play a local show at Le Poisson Rouge in Manhattan on November 10th, 2016. Be sure to check out the new track “Unraveling,” and let us know your thoughts on this collab.

Gentleman’s Dub Club ” “ Background:

Last November, Gentleman’s Dub Club allowed us to give away the original version of “One Night Only,” featuring the UK’s Natty. The original album, The Big Smoke, dropped on November 13th, 2015 via Easy Star Records and almost a year to the date, on November 11th, the group has released a Remixed version of the record. The group teamed up with the likes of the legendary Prince Fatty (Lily Allen, Dub Syndicate, The Skints, Hollie Cook), Hungarian-born DJ Madd, Chief Rockas, and more to shed a fresh light on the material.

Leading off the 7-track EP is “One Night Only,” as Chief Rockas changes up the tone of the original mix as detailed by the Club: “Chief Rockas unravel some of the mystery of Natty’s mystical ‘One Night Only,’ switching it to a major key, and replacing the rootsy vibes of the original with a thumping half time beat. Uplifting keys, rowdy sound effects and a driving bassline definitely make this one for the DJ’s!”

Natty, known for his hit single “Bedroom Eyes,” brings a relaxed and smooth vocal delivery to a bass-heavy, percussion-friendly reggae track.

When we featured the original version of this song last year, we reached out to Natty about the song and he told us: “I knew Gentleman’s Dub Club from the touring scene and they just asked me to feature on their album. As soon as I heard the backing track, it was easy for the song to just write itself. Was a pleasure working with GDC. Effortless vibes, good live band as well. Enjoyed performing the track with them.”

Gentleman’s Dub Club bassist producer, Toby Davies best breaks it down by saying: “Natty combined with Steppas powerhouse Gentleman’s Dub Club, rolls out a sweet and heavy roots collaboration, ‘One Night Only’. Laced with GDC’s signature brand of high energy dub and Natty’s vocal mysticism and lyrical mastery, ‘One Night Only’ packs the sort of punch that whips any brand of dance into a heads down skankout. Inspiration!”

Hat’s off to Chief Rockas for revealing a different side and tone, further showing the artistic depth of a magnificent collaboration. You can pick up the new album November 11th via GDC’s website by clicking HERE!
