The riddim “lick over” or the “relick” is so embedded in dancehall culture that it’s become the norm to revisit the past and bring it to the present. Such is the case that in the 80’s it was almost a rarity to score a “hit” with an original backing track.
In the first half of the 1980s these riddims generally consisted of vintage B-sidetracks from Coxsone Dodd’s Studio One or, to a lesser extent, Duke Reid’s TreasureIsle studio. Riddims of some songs, like ‘Real Rock’, ‘Nanny Goat’, ‘Mad Mad’, and‘General’ (all from 1967) and ‘Heavenless’, ‘African Beat’, and ‘Full Up’ (from 1968).
Having said all that ZigeDub presents the “You Should Have Known Riddim Relick” which is a rehashed version of the old Studio One backing track for Joe Riley’s “You Should Have Known”.
Bringing together talented artists from United Kingdom, Jamaica, Kenya , Nigeria, United States to grace this riddim in fine style.We believe it’s a compilation that all reggae lovers who appreciate some good Rub-A-Dub will surely love.
