Remix set of the inaugural Jab Jab carnival riddims out of Grenada. Detroit legend Anthony 'Shake' Shakir kicks things of with a wild and rambunctious version of Adrian Lenz's 'Cover Me', paired with an instrumental version. The flipside contains Alan Johnson's exceptionally executed and imaginative remix of Sandman's 'No Prisoners', which retains the grizzly and macabre spirit of the original whilst distorting it into a mind-bending, Escherian trip - a real masterpiece! Diskant figurehead and Durian Brother Harmonious Thelonious' remix rounds off the session with a banging tropical version of 'No Prisoners' in trademark style.
Support from Joy O, Lee Gamble, Batu, Metrist, Ben UFO.
