Dread and militant from Blackboard Jungle and RockDis All Stars

Sampler

Last year France’s Blackboard Jungle – a sound system and a label – dropped two devastating showcase albums – one from UK’s Reality Souljahs and one from Spain’s Roberto Sánchez, both backed by Rock Dis All Stars aka the Rockers Disciples, a band from France making solid music in the rockers tradition.

BlackbloardBut they also presented a 15 track compilation titled Musically Dread with material released between 2010 and 2014. This set is only available on CD and is well-worth investigating since it’s an excellent roots collection featuring talented singers and deejays like Johnny OsbourneJah Mason, Tony TuffAfrikan Simba, Patrick Andy, Earl 16 and Christine Miller.

Musically Dread is vintage rockers sounding like it did in the mid to late 70s. There is plenty of highlights and some of the finest moments include Christine Miller’s breezy Feel the Sunshine, Roberto Sánchez’ blazing Fire, Echo Ranks’ militant Chant Down the Wicked and Don Fe’s beautiful flute instrumental Consider the Ravens.

The title of this fine compilation tells it all – this is dread music. Militant and dread.
