DON CARLOS - TIME IS THE MASTER
Introducing 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 this album. 

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.
