Roger Robinson - Dis Side Ah Town (LP)

(click HERE to enlarge)


One night in 2011 King Midas Sound's Roger Robinson returned to Brixton from touring and
inadvertently walked into the centre of the London riots. Through the flames and smoke he
felt compelled to tell the stories of the people he saw rioting on the street that night.

With disrupt's dub soundtrack highlighting the triumphs and tribulations in the lives of the
people of Brixton, the album unfolds like a documentary film, extending from the epicentre
of the riots and rippling out from there.

Roger showcases all his poetry and singing styles over the sonic tower blocks and underground
caverns of disrupt's dub soundscapes, evoking the golden era of dub poetry of the likes of Prince
Far I, Big Youth and Linton Kwesi Johnson - a time when dub poetry made you dance in the club
but also made you think on the way home.

Done with lots of voltage, old school samplers, DIY synths, home made delays, dictaphones
and even onboard computer mics this gritty disc will take you straight to Brixton's streets.
