After a strong first year for Manchester record label; NB Audio now move on to their 4th EP release with another young Manchester talent; Red Eye Hi Fi. With a dub/reggae 4 x track EP featuring vocals from Fox, Jah ‘Walk & Skank’ Screechy, Sangy, Yemi Bolatiwa and Kwasi Asante.
The title track ‘Raise the Alarm’ is 110bpm carnival madness, with rolling sub, snappy snares and deadly vocals from Mancunian veteran MC Fox.
‘Weh Screechy Weed Deh’ is the comedic story of a failed police raid at the home of Jah ‘Walk n Skank’ Screechy, set over a bashy, bass heavy rework of Capleton’s Hurricane riddim.
‘Lose it’ sees up-and-comer Sangy effortlessly lace a banging genre defying 138 BPM beat with his trademark hard hitting lyrics.
The final track ‘I’m Free’ finishes the EP with a bouncy reggae beat and a conscious, uplifting vocal from Yemi Bolatiwa. Featuring the original don Kwasi Asante.
