If you visited a coconut shop, you would encounter sizes and shapes unique as snowflakes. Wackie’s brings you coconuts of the Jamaican German Big Apple dub variety. This is roots reggae music recorded in New York City at Lloyd Barnes’s studio and reissued by Berlin’s Rhythm & Sound posse. An early-’80s vibe defines the sound. Classic dub riddims ride the digital fringe. The sweet meat is thick with lover’s rock crooned atop blazing backing tracks. The Lovejoys, Wayne Jarret, Sugar Minott and Junior Delahaye sound as fresh as the day their voices were laid to tape. Crack open the coconut, sip and satta.
