Johnny Osbourne – Rock It Tonight
Legendary reggae and dancehall vocalist Johnny Osbourne has been one of the most distinctive voices on the roots reggae scene since the late 70s. Combine his perfect pipes with Toronto’s original jungle henchman Marcus Visionary and you end up with a totally tropical drum and bass insta-classic in a rub-a-dub style. Marcus has chosen to release two versions of this banger on Liondub International, and it’s not hard to see why; the virtual flip sees the original dubplate version gain a meaner work-over for 2013, adding an edge that will surely have dancefloors skanking from here to Kingston. A little bit a sunshine for us all.
