Green Lion Crew Teams Up with Addis Pablo Recreate His Father’s Classic Cassava Piece Riddim
The music of Augustus Pablo is timeless and has become a part of the foundation of what we call Roots Reggae today. He is almost solely responsible for the unique use of the melodica as a major leading instrument in dub music. The Cassava Piece Riddim set its mark in history as one of his most well loved versions having multiple popular releases over the years. This included collaborations with Jacob Miller as well as his classic album with King Tubby “King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown” in 1976. Fast forward to 2021 and American Producers Green Lion Crew have teamed up with his son Addis Pablo to recreate this mystic riddim with a modern twist. A deep solid bassline, springy reverb keyboard chops, a heavy fat one drop drum pattern and the mystical melodies of the melodica combine together for a divine take on this foundation classic.
The album which is called Green Lion Crew meets Addis Pablo & Friends Uptown features vocalists
Micah Shemaiah (Jamaica)
Mr Williamz (London)
Jah Bami (Trinidad & Tobago)
It also includes 3 heavy spacey dub versions from Suns Of Dub, Green Lion Crew, and Addis Pablo and is available on all streaming platforms.
