Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives (Stream + Tracklist): Jah-nuary 3, 2015: Mutant Dub New Year!

???????????????????????????????????????
The Mutants have taken over on Smile Jamaica: New Year’s Bass-gasm of Modern Dub: A-Zed

Greetings,

 <10th Annual: Mutant Dub New Year: 3 hours of A-Zed; 30 sec.>

Happy New Year! Let’s start it off with all dub and bass. Neo-Dub, Modern Dub, Mutant Dub.

Gonna give the Orthodox Roots stalwarts the week off to explore my fascination with the crossover dub sound: drum & bass, electronica, downtro, lounge, dubstep, militant steppers, techno, ambient, etc. etc.

I listen to Roots Reggae at home and Mutant Dub in my car. Knives to the treble!

Flying Saucers by Tena Stelin – Lyrics transcribed for the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives:

Anunnaki, Anu-Anunnaki
Anunnaki, El Kuluwm

Flying Saucers
Them a chat bout on-ya
Flying Saucers
Up in the Sky near and far
It’s coming like Star Wars…Watch it!

Please tell me: what is the meaning?
The meaning of these sightings?
So many people claim to see the same thing
I guess it must mean something

Talking about Extra Terrestrials!
Ask yourself: is it real or is it impossible? Watch out!

In the Book of Ezekiel
It’s like he describes a Crystal Ship

I’ve got to wonder if he was for real?
Was he just a raving lunatic? Hallelu-Jah!

Enoch walked with God
And he was found not

Elijah was taken up into a Chariot
A Chariot of Fire!

Inna Ancient Mesopotamia
They talked about the Anunnaki
They said they came from beyond the Sky
Oh tell me! Was they telling a lie?

El Kuluwm means the Source
El Kuluwm the highest course
All and Iley and Allah is the Same
So the Rastaman tell me no feel no way

<Ancient Aliens Roll Call; 10 sec.>
