one of the sweetest singers in Reggae Music:
Don Carlos. The brethren is one of the
original members of the well known vocal
group Black Uhuru. But that doesn't mean
that he has to lean on this fact for his
popularity or acknowledgement.
His sweet voice can make you skank on a
bad riddim fe real. And when the riddim is
right, well, then you just can't go wrong.
Time Is The Master proofs it right here
and right now.
Tight drum and basslines, skillful
instrumentation, nuff DUB mixing and one of
the sweetest voices that Reggae Music has to
offer. That is, in short, a description of
In fact, two albums.
We're talking about another one of these
Two-Albums-On-One-Disc releases that rose
like mushrooms during the first decade of
the Compact Disc.
Ten out of twenty tracks are remixes from
an album called "Spread Out".
Prince Jimmy riddims, of which you can hear
some dubs on "Osbourne in Dub".
Solid rub a dub style fe real. I just
mention the massive Groove With Me. I play
it often in my shows and every time people
start skanking immediately.
And it doesn't stop there!
Where "Spread Out" is hard core
Rub A Dub (early dancehall) Style, the ten
tracks that complete this elementary
collection are played in the Roots Rockers
tradition. And many of them are classics in
their own might. What to say about classics
such as Late Nite Blues and Satta Massagana?
You can't go wrong when you buy this one.
Simply because it is a good introduction to
the impressive work of Don Carlos, and
simply because it contains crucial music.
Even decades after it's original release,
a whole new generation feels the rhythm like
it was fresh. Yes, Time is the Master. It
shows who can stay and who must go. Don
Carlos is here to stay, that's a fact.
