Vibzin’: rootsnwingz recommends new dub and reggae albums (February 18th 2015)

Dub Choir EP by Suns of Dub and BuzzRock

buzzrockThe band, BuzzRock, is a high energy reggae band hailing from the twin isle of Trinidad and Tobago. The name BuzzRock represents the pulse of the earth or the vibration of the people, hence the name ‘Buzz’ (vibration) and ‘Rock’ (the Earth). The neo-foundation reggae band proves to be a mystical experience for both vintage and modern reggae lovers alike. BuzzRock’s performances have been known to mesmerize reggae lovers but also non-reggae listeners, with their mystical presence on stage, raw emotion and passion each member puts into the music. Their first album titled ‘Universal Blacks’ was released in 2009. The album, fully produced by BuzzRock and mastered at Tuff Gong Studios – Jamaica, created waves in Trinidad and Tobago and a number of independent record labels have taken interest in the project with plans underway to secure international distribution.

Consisting of six (6) core members; Sadiki Niamke Philips (Rhythm Guitar, Lead Vocals, Backup Vocals), Haile-Sion Sam (Drums), Candace ‘Keys’ Moore (Keyboards), Rodney ‘Yahrod’ Rique (Lead Vocals, Backup Vocals), Lamar ‘Beebo’ Pollard (Bass) and Stephen ‘Blitz’ Peterson (Lead Guitars). BuzzRock is often considered a family band as most of the members have known each other for a number of years through their pursuit of musical and spiritual knowledge. When put on a stage together, what ensues can only be described as mind blowing. To date the band has performed alongside a host of international reggae icons including: Midnite, Steel Pulse, Barrington Levy, Max Romeo, Dezarie, Ras Shiloh, Ijahman Levi, Cocoa Tea, Tarrus Riley and Beres Hammond.

This new EP features the awesome melodica and dubbing of Addis Pablo and Ras Jammy (Suns of Dub)!

LYRICS
Intro by Mr bad to the bone

Chorus

From him get up in the morning
Haffi pop it off
Top shotta nuh laugh, people scream and bawling
Haffi pop it off
All station staff
(Repeat)

Verse 1

Just a little squeeze off the trigger
Love tot hear the sound of the gun when it fires
Love to see people get flat and scatter
Change their good, good names, now they are shottas
Whole heap of things them youths yah don’t remember
Like when their mothers used to change their diapers
Take them to school, pay all the teacher
Evening comes, daddy provide the dinner
When they’re sick, their mothers bleach with them at doctor
Now them a walk, rape, rob and murder
AK 47 in a hand over shoulder
Daddy got a glimpse and him pants full a water
Wee Wee, Mr bad to the bone

Chorus

From him get up in the morning
Haffi pop it off
Top shotta nuh laugh, people scream and bawling
Haffi pop it off
All station staff
(Repeat)

Verse 2

Bap, man dead out a street
Daddy hear on the news say him one boy do it
Mama belly ban, head in a hand
Asking Lord, what me do wrong
Why fi mi one boy turn gunman
A wonder if a the company weh him keep
A wonder if a true, him used to love roam the street
Used to love roam the street (times 4)

Bridge 1

Shotta beat it till a morning
Nah hear when mama calling
Him full a tough chat and talking
And a run when big dogs barking

Chorus

From him get up in the morning
Haffi pop it off
Top shotta nuh laugh, people scream and bawling
Haffi pop it off
All station staff
(Repeat)

Bridge 2
Mama, Babylon a carry me in a jeep
Them a box and a kick me, mama don’t make them do it
Mama, from mi little and a grow, me afraid a soldier and me don’t like police
(Repeat)
