Krikor - Cefran Riddims 001 (PRE-ORDER)
7"A new imprint dedicated to all things reggae/dancehall, Homemade Soundsystem is a much personal homecoming for BFDM mastermind Judaah. Setting a whole new aesthetic agenda for the Marseilles-based groove slinger, revolving around fresh interpretations of classic skanky riddims and further sweat-inducing Caribbean tropes, the label pays a vibrant tribute to Judaah's first love, following straight in the footsteps of the artists who played a crucial role in the birth and development of his taste over the years; from Sizzla to Bounty Killa, via Buju Banton, Augustus Pablo and Lee Scratch Perry. Though mainly born out of a life-affirming teenage love for the aforementioned styles and their bastardized sub-divisions, HSS is also and further crucially intended as a platform for shrewdly executed cross-overs and quaky bass moves zeroeing in on bringing dancefloors to an unchaste, swelteringly sensual boil. Expect mad tides of booties bumpin' and shakin' as HSS ruff drum progs, heliotropic melodies and knee-buckling breaks cut a path of destruction across the clubs, Judaah's your skipper for a helluva wild ride into damp musical tropics.
