After the release of the juggling sets Kool Breeze Riddim, Pedal Riddim, and Bubble Up Riddim, Jamaica-based Echo One Productions is back with a relicked version of Aswad’s Dub Fire from 1982, arguably one of the greatest dub tracks in reggae history which reggae fans probably remember best as the riddim that underpinned Dennis Brown’s 1983 roots scorcher Promised Land, released in Jamaica on 7″ and 12″ vinyl. Without any doubt, reggae fans at the time were deeply touched by the riddim’s contagious bassline and scintillating horns.

This new version has been composed by Dwayne Cowans aka Fire Wayne, a graduate of The Edwin Allen High School. At age 8 he was already playing music on vinyl and participating in cassette clashes. He’s a master on the turntables and a formidable force in mixing music. Fire Wayne started his own sound system Echo One Sound with his brother Marlon ‘Bucka’ Cowans and later founded the Echo One Productions music label with Joel ‘J3’ Simpson. Fire Wayne also presents on one of the best radio stations in Jamaica; Sun City 104.9 FM.

Echo One Productions treats the listener very well with a heavy relick of the Promised Land riddim, which is retitled Capture Land Riddim. Chuck Fenda, the former dancehall bad boy who throughout the years has become an upful roots reggae act and a reliable hitmaker, gets things started in a big way with the huge opener Eternal Fire. Delly Ranx keeps the vibes going with his cut Shotta, while Richie Spice, who sometimes can be a hit or miss artist, here hits with a cautionary song entitled Young Juvenile.

Then fine singer Anthony Cruz delivers the solid Righteousness Wi Come Fi Defend. Anthony B comes up with a truly massive ganja piece before Snatcha Lion serves up the more laid-back sounding This Reggae Music. Bramma takes this huge backdrop out for a ride and does this in a fully satisfying way. Vyza Don illuminates the cradle of Jamaica’s music with a worth hearing tune called Trench Town. Gaza Kym’s Weed Minister is the second ganja tune featured on this set and it’s a real good one.

A juggling set that fires on all cylinders.
