Earlier this year while in Sacramento, 6Blocc set up a meeting with Junior Demus to discuss dubplates. What became of that day was three tracks for Digital 6, one of which has been spun on its head by no less than seven very different producers. Enter "Jungle Stabbin'", first taken on by the legendary Marcus Visionary who puts a dancehall spin to the tropical sounds, before 6Blocc take on his own work for a switched-down, hip-swaying, dubbed-out take. Rootikal strips it back to original reggae stylings in his offerings, with a particularly nice brass hook added to the final track.
There are two schools of remixes; one that gently rubs the original and provides a slightly different perspective. Then there are ones that consume the original, spit it back out on the floor and start dancing up and down on it. Prescott's ace original - complete with Dynamite MC and Jah Screechy on mic duties - is included for reference, but these remixes really do take things to that famous 'next level'. Mungo Hi-Fi whizz us up on a deep, percussive tribal flex, Woz fires up his industrial strength breakbeat lasers while Gold adds some turbo-boosted rave synths. On a dubstep tip? On a massive, genre-defying remix package tip more like.
