The Ital Horns blow their way to the Top... Yet again!

Compliments to the Ital Horns, comprised of the legendary brass duo David Fullwood on trumpet and Richard Doswell on sax and flute, with the Bush Chemist’s Chazbo Chong also on board to do the necessary with the technology (and the melodica) on this new release. Over the years the Horns have worked with an illustrious list of reggae greats, including Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Prince Buster, Dennis Brown, the Mad Professor, Jah Warrior, the Disciples, Macka B., Adrian Sherwood, Zion Train, Love Grocer and U-Sound.

Ital Horns - Showcase vol.1This album was conceived via Dougie Conscious’ (or Wardrop) at his Conscious Sounds studio in Hackney, London. It’s comprised of 12 top tracks, with 6 in their original version, followed by delightful dubs. 

Amongst the collection’s highlights is the wonderful ‘Mas Que Nada’ which some enthusiasts may have met on the ‘History, Mystery, Destiny’ release. It really is a track that would defy even the crankiest cripple to stay seated! And it’s an entirely new mix from Mr. Conscious. Thereafter, ‘Far Away’ with its engaging pace variation does the trick, before ‘Mysterious’ merges drum and brass to maximum effect in a style that will appeal to trance lovers. 

The album’s flip side – as it’s released in vinyl format – opens with an appealing oriental flavour via ‘Shinjoku’, before the pace hots up to a myriad of musical instruments on the ‘Ital Vibration’ track. Closing this classic collection comes the sweet ‘Shacklewell Rock’ (and its dub version), bringing the brilliant brass - with some fine flute inputs - to the fore.

Here’s hoping the djs tune into this classic release to get the punters grooving.
