Militant second album from France’s Ackboo.

Sampler

Ackboo - InvincibleFrench producer Ackboo – who is heavily inspired UK roots acts like Zion Train and Jah Shaka along with France’s own electro-dub maestro Kanka – is back with a new album, three years after his heavy-hitting debut Turn Up the Amplifier.

Invincible is in the same vein as its predecessor with a mix of mostly dub, reggae and electro. The amplifiers are turned up to unhealthy levels, the bass lines are muscular and the sonic landscape is frighteningly dark.

Brother Culture lends his tongue twisting skills to the grim title track, a cut that is said to be inspired by the progressive Mike Oldfield and comes with vicious keys, and the instrumental Celadon is pure evil with what sounds like Frankenstein’s carillon.

Ackboo has for this militant album assembled a number of well-known vocalists – Linval Thompson, Solo Banton, Horace Andy – but also lesser known talents like Maïcee and S’Kaya. This is warrior-style roots with conscious messages and calls for action. Ackboo aims to unite and engage.
