Pressure Sounds dig deep in Yabby You’s archives.

Sampler

Yabby You - Deeper Roots'Deeper Roots: Dub Plates And Rarities 1976 - 1979' is a collection of tracks by the late producer and singer Yabby You and is the latest release on Pressure Sounds. As implied by the title, the 19 track album collects extremely rare singles, previously unknown mixes and dub plates only heard by loyal sound system followers.

Many of Yabby You’s greatest achievements were originally pressed in tiny numbers and reissue giants Blood & Fire’s compilation 'Jesus Dread' was more than welcome when it was put out 15 years ago.

Now the baton is handed over to Pressure Sounds and they dig deeper in his vaults of highly spiritual and eerie archives and have found tracks that celebrate his unique partnership with legendary mixing engineer King Tubby alongside obscurities such as Lazy Mood, an organ cut of the classic Conquering Lion, Barrington Spence’s Don’t Touch I Dread, Smith & The Prophets Valley of Joeasaphat and Don D Junior’s trombone led instrumental Milk River Rock.

Yabby You was a sufferer growing up in poverty and this is reflected in much of his music. He’s roots reggae in its purest sense and this testament of his golden period reflects the core and the peak of profound Jamaican rasta music.
