There are occasions where a vocal simply isn't necessary; the instrumental original does all the damage you want it to. Then there's the less frequent case of vocal / instrumental smelting that's so natural and neat, you wonder why it hasn't happened sooner. "Real Good Gal" is definitely in the latter category. Originally released in 2012, Tzinas' "Jam Hot Riddim" (a dub version of Beats International), here we find it graced with Montreal's finest dancehall singer Clinton Sly and it's the perfect match. The remixes are equally stimulating; Maars adds emphasis to the beats, Cut La Vis adds a sense of electronic evangelism and Dark Able smashes out a jungle-juiced jump up D&B vibe. Real good vibes.
Don't worry, "Can't Divide" isn't Seed Organization's lament about not being able to do maths. Quite the contrary; it's actually his ode to music and its unifying power. Classic dub barbed with a smidgeon of contemporary bass grit, SO's licks are the ideal bed for Sly's throaty dancehall patter. For less mic focus and more studio wizardry head for the dub. For added 170 thrills head for El Richee's sweet and subby D&B remix. For more of a dubstep focus head for the riddim mix. Each version a stone cold killer, this is essential for trad dub and contemporary bass heads alike.
