Irie Ites unleash Mr Officer by Lorenzo and Chezidek

Check out this arresting Jamaican/French/UK killer!


The French label Irie Ites has come up trumps with their civilly disobedient new roots 10”.

Based on Mikey Dread’s Roots & Culture rhythm, it’s an uncompromising roots piece that will sound equally at home in a modern or vintage selection.

The A side features the vocal duet with an aggressive extended brass break from the UK’s Henry “Buttons” Tenyue and his Matic horns. The two dub B sides are a cross-channel collaboration between Mafia and Fluxy and Bim from Special Delivery.
