Negus Roots Special Part 2 - Fire House

Negus Roots Special Part 2 + Fire House Selections



The second half of the NEGUS ROOTS story. The Palmer brothers, Michael & Robert 'Flako' originate from Waterhouse but founded Negus Roots in 1980 after a move to the UK. They put out a long series of crucial 12'' and several LPs until the outfit shut down at the end of 1985. Negus Roots came back to life in 2005 when Flako Palmer voiced Neville Brown & Earl 16 for the Kilamanjaro 12''. A dubwize collaboration with Gussie P followed in 2007 - Firehouse Dub.

Begins with early 80s sides from Don Carlos, Lacksley Catell & Junior Reid and some earlier FIRE HOUSE roots 7s before moving on to rub-a-dub & lovers selections and then outright pre-digital dancehall vbes. Nuff dub version. Horace Martin and Neville Brown became the label's biggest stars once Don Carlos & Junior Reid had moved on and Lacksley Castell died. Neville Brown's Haul & Pull Up was a major and memorable hit into the mid-80s. Horace Martin is a highly talented but somehow much underrated singer well represented here. Deejays Johnny Ringo, General Stout & Papa Tullo deh ya. The mix winds down with a few laid back rootsy tunes at the end.

Live broadcast on RastFM.com 05/08/2017


This mix includes several great sides by EDDIE (EDI) FITZROY who passed away this March. He was a roots legend who kept the conscious flame burning through the 1990s in particular. So tribute to the man here... his music will long live on....

Continuous mix. 2hrs 33.

Ras Mdas - The One Love Revolution - Official Mixtape 2017

RastFM webradio & Siamrootsical proudly present the
I-fficial RAS MIDAS mixtape
THE ONE LOVE REVOLUTION

 Released as part of our RASTFM INTERNATIONAL ARTIST OF THE MONTH celebrations this mix is a career perspective with choice selections taken from across the artist's 40+ years of releases and includes dubs & interviews specially recorded for the session..


Ras Midas the 'Rastaman In Exile', the 'Musical Prophet' hails from Clarendon Jamaica and began his career in 1968. He had his first major success KUDE A BAMBA in 1976 with Harry J's. The record was released by Island records and went on to be an international reggae hit. The song is sung partly in Swahili and is popular in many African countries. It was followed by the acclained RAIN & FIRE LP and a chain of singles for Harry J, Jaywax, Tribes Man and other labels into the 1980s, including the inspirational JAH JAH SAME LOVE.  He also teamed up with deejay I Roy for several 12''s.

Ras Midas is a talented songwriter, a man with a message, and his songs have depth & a strong meditative quality to the lyrics. An extended period of extensive travelling and break for studies helped develop his RASTAMAN IN EXILE theme & the classic LP of that name. These ideas speak not to rastas alone.. but all dispossed and uprooted people around the globe who end up living as expats and refugees. The songs on this set are thus timeless and resonate today as strongly as ever.

After his STAND UP WISE UP album with Sylvan Morris in 1984 Midas moved into self-production releasing four other albums between international tours, including the excellent REACHING OUT & FIRE UP sets from 2006 & 2010 respectively. He is currently working on a One Love Revolution set of new songs.


Compiled/mixed by Paul Rootsical & Selector Sleng Teng.
Project unity & direction from Selector Shikydraks. Thanks to Rockin Rocco, Dub Libertad & Selector Seb for their contributions.
Continuous mix. 99 minutes.

Special thanks to Ras Midas' agent Nan Lewis of Entertainment Works, zoomzoom....
Also giving thanks to the man himself for his direct involvement in everything from the start. Its been a real pleasure... BLESSED LOVE

THE RASTAMAN IN EXILE LP has been digitally mastered and is finally now available on CD & mp3 download. Available at Amazon, CDBaby, Bandcamp & all good retailers.
