Federation vs Solomonic cds are in stores now!
Here is our first review from turntablelab.com
Philly’s Solomonic Sound and NY’s Federation meet in an all exclusive, all dubplate, all specials mix! They take things pretty much head to head, trading off dubplates from all the biggest artists, with special versions of some absolutely monster tunes. The cd is arranged by riddim, so you get stuff like a John Holt dub of “Police In Helicopter,” followed by no less than 3 Capleton vocals over the same riddim. Shit gets real serious when they start heading into things like the Real Rock, Far East and Stalag and it’s capped with a tune fi tune segment featuring insane versions of Sugar Minott’s “Never Give Up,” Sizzla’s “Solid As A Rock,” Buju’s “Murderer” and much more. Partial artist list: Damian Marley (on the Truths And Rights riddim), Johnny Osbourne, Richie Spice, Bounty Killer, Sanchez, Marlon Asher, Anthony B, Chuck Fender, Yami Bolo (killer version of “Put Down The Weapon”), Beres Hammond, Luciano, Turbulence, etc. Extra points for the super cool throwback cover- recommended.
