Customers who bought this item also bought
Up, Bustle & Out are one of the original Ninja Tune label acts. Over the past ten years, UBO have released five albums & countless singles through the London-based label, kindling world-wide interest in their experimental, multicultural sound. The forthcoming CD longplayer, "City Breakers.", is the magnificent 7th album! - and was previously in ltd. vinyl only version available - it's similar in spirit and attitude to the 2003 "Urban Evacuation" album (Unique Records #UNIQ069). UBO spent more smoky hours in their Bristol studio to produce this exciting fusion of Reggae, Dub & Hip Hop street grooves. The new album includes as well a number of hand-picked vocal tracks, with giants like Black Roots' Ras Jabulani, Jamaican Deejay Mexican and Roni Size vocalist MC Nicky Blaze contributing vocals. Other musical guests on the album include Nitin Sawhney & Cuffy 'El Guapo' (Flamenco Guitar). The album artwork is especially designed by American artist Blanquito - the CD has a playing time of over 71 minutes including five bonus tracks. 2006

The best of CITY BREAKERS includes the unearthly ambience of ASCENDING SUN, dub reggae groovers like RAINBOW TOWN and SHEPPARD & HIS FLOCK (see if you can pick out the BEST DRESSED CHICKEN sample), and the old-school GRASS SKIRTS, which is a nice throwback to early nineties Ninja Tune workouts. Five bonus tracks round off the album, including a classy remix of EVERYDAY by Michael Hunter (Butch Cassidy Sound System), a rather psychedelic reggae instrumental, PARAMO'S GHOST, and dub versions of three other album tracks.
Okay, well I don't think I would describe this as a superb reggae album - mostly because that only describes where CITY BREAKERS is coming from, and doesn't hint at where it might be going along the way - but regardless, this is a great record, perfect for hot, dusty summer afternoons and long, starry nights alike. Pass the Rizlas!
