Cornell Campbell Meets Soothsayers - Jah Jah Me No Born Yah Remix EP

Riddim Chango Records is a record label based in London/Tokyo which spreads a positive message and promotes love and unity through soundsystem music. Riddim Chango consists of members Hiroshi and 1TA from Bim One Production. Their latest effort is a four track remix EP from reggae legend Cornell Campbell aka Don Cornel or Don Gorgon. With his trademark falsetto voice, his recordings at Studio One in the late 1960s and his later work with Bunny Lee in the 1970s he became a well known figure in the reggae business, who still is active.

In 1973 he recorded “My Baby Just Cares For Me / Jah Jah Me Horn Yah” for the GayFeet label. This anthem mashed up the place in those days and he did it again with true conviction on the 2013 album “Nothing Can Stop Us” with the Soothsayers. The Soothsayers are a mighty collective from Brixton who are highly regarded on the European live circuit. On stage, they’ve backed such artists as U-Roy, Michael Prophet, Earl 16, Mad Professor and Rico.

The 4 track remix EP starts with an highly impressive remix by the OBF Soundsystem from France. Taking of at the start of the new century, they create music with all kinds of drum machines and synths, mixing roots rock reggae with new digital sounds. Next comes a superb dubby reworking from Ticklah aka Victor Axelrod, a creative independent music producer and artist, who has been a continual and integral part of the NYC music scene for over a decade.

The adventurous remix by Bim One Production filters out the deep bass line and replaces it with a synth layer. They are a Tokyo based electronic reggae riddim production unit formed in 2014 to take reggae riddims to the next level. Last comes the Ruv Bites dub mix who take the song to an unexpected level.
