Spider and Fly Dub2

The Spider and The Fly was recorded in 1994. As I had it lying around doing nothing I though I would include it. Bwoy it was hard to find someone to convert it from DAT tape to CD. I wrote and recorded it when I was playing carnival mas with a band called Coffee boys and Girls who played The Spider and The Fly mas that year. Vamps the engineer kept on complaining its too long, no one would play it; hence why the most appropriate verse to this CD is not included ' The African Chief and the Arms Trader '. I even re-wrote a shorter version, but did not like it. Also it has a great dance to go with it, which we lost some of somewhere along the line. I hope people will construct their own verses to it; It's one of life's important lessons."

ARC Introduction and Resolution

"ARC Introduction and Resolution is just my shortest standard introduction to ARC with the full resolution which governs ARC. To me the music is haunting and makes it sound like a deep and powerful warning

World Dialogue Sounds, created in 2004 by an African (Djigui Diabate from the Ivory Coast) and an Afro Caribbean (Karl Miller from Jamaica) , is a fusion of Revival Reggae, Jazz, World Music, Drum and Bass, Easy Listening, Rhythm and Blues (R&B), Soul, Tribal, Ethnic, Instrumental and Speech Rap genres. It is optimised for speech (but presents an excellent medium for singing, rapping and toasting) by removing some distracting and overbearing sounds. Created with modern computer software, it features simple loops of many instruments that require an orchestra or a large band for fine live rendition. The sounds generate soothing, sad, groovy and even party moods. The instrumentals are rich in variety of sound and can be used for discos, background music, sound effects, film moods creation or just chilling.
