Explosive Diskodub from Taiwan MC

Sampler

Almost two years after the release of his Heavy This Year set French deejay and singer Taiwan MC returns with a second EP. Diskodub is an eight track effort and a hybrid of funky digital reggae and futuristic contemporary dancehall complete with psychedelic dub effects and a haunting melodica.

TaiwanThe set is produced by Soap, Chinese ManDreadsquad and Manudigital with lyrics written by Taiwan MC when on the road. Each of this producers have their own distinct style, but it all blends together nicely.

Taiwan MC showcases his tongue twisting skills on What a Joy and Tell Dem, the latter a version of Augustus GussieClarke’s successful Telephone Love. Album opener Diskodub closes with a high-pitched G-funk synth and Pon di Road borrows its guitar melody from Johnny Cash’s classic Ring of Fire.

Taiwan MC also chats over a bouncy version of King Tubby’s brutal Tempo riddim and Manudigital’s remix of Blaze It Up pays tribute to the classic Sleng Teng riddim.

The up-tempo and explosive Diskodub is an invitation to a digital reggae dancehall party.
