Midnite – “Intense Pressure” – [Rastafaria – Roots, Dub & Culture]
Given to dank instrumental melody, with word thereafter attached to it, Midnite are also extremely productive. This is from 2003 and contains more instrumentals than the usual Midnite album. How they remember which song is which on their relentless touring is beyond me. There is no tediousness or saturation except into dankness. Many musical metaphors apply, stars in the sky, diamonds on your shoes, fresh vision, warning sounds. These are not studio dubbers, this is a real band. The vocals are given slowly, paced to the syncopations of the song. To this I ask “what’s going round?”. I am reminded of Wibbly Wobbly, and recommend Spliff Skankin close Jah’s Music with track six. Tracks 2, 3, 5, 7, and 9 all have lyric.
