The contemporary reggae world was rocked and happily shocked when Freestyle Records unleashed Kalbata & Mixmonster's Congo Beat The Drum album in 2014. The wholly analogue, old school production combined with the classic Jamaican vocalists featured such as Little John, Major Mackerel, Echo Minott had everyone from Toddla T to Robert Elms absolutely raving about the albums genuine roots and culture feel.
And now Freestyle presents another single, Inna Skateland, that features legend Puddy Roots on vocals, whose voice is brilliantly well suited to the dub heavy, reverb laden music. The flip side, Skateland Dub, is a brand new track, not featured on the album and is 100% exclusive to this brand new release!
