Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-nuary 6, 2018 (Stream + Tracklist) Mutant Dub New Year!

Greetings,

Happy 2018! By tradition for the past decade or so, I have devoted the first Smile Jamaica Ark-Ive of the year to Mutant Dub. What I tend to end the shows with in the last half hour, showcased 3 hours of drum and bass glory.

Not everyone is a fan of the “wobble” as much as the Orthodox Roots Reggae “echo.” I can expect at least one listener to call in that it is all too much. (2018 complaint received around 6:15 this year.)

Yet, I was also encouraged by people calling in to say how unexpectedly refreshing it is to hear a classic Massive Attack tune on a Roots Reggae show. (I cast the Reggae net far and wide.) Much love shown to the ON U Sound massive. Creation Rebel, Dry & Heavy, New Age Steppers and Singers & Players. Adrian Sherwood – the Godfather of Mutant Dub

And this year a listener checked in to say that he was unhappy with the flat sound of his Klipsch speakers. (I also fire up Klipsch at the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives.) Until he flipped on Smile Jamaica and the bass woke-up on his Hi-Fi.

<Smile Jamaica brings out the bass in your speaker array; 24 sec.>

After two weeks showing love to my family from Albuquerque to Sun City West, AZ – it felt good to get back on the decks and juggle bassadelica for all who love and loathe the modern sound of downtro, dubstep, lounge, jungle, electronica, post-punk, 420 dubbers, Roots Dawtas and Disco Mix vinyl.

Lo-fi for I ‘n’ I

I took up the show right in the middle of a personal crisis. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, committed enemy to the Seven Leaf, waited until Collie-fornya legalized the collie weed on New Year’s Day 2018 and sicc’d his Justice Department attorneys to stop the people’s will.

I just set my parents up with medical marijuana in Arizona and literally the day after my Pops get his card, Sessions lowered the boom.

Jeff Sessions war on legal/medical weed

My Dad has neuropathy in his feet, sciatica and still has pain from a recent carpal tunnel surgery. Mom’s has knee pain and wants to get off anxiety meds and sleep aids.

Marijuana and its CBD/THC concoctions are the way. 28k die per year of opioid overdose. In the 10k history of mankind and the Seven Leaf, zero fatalities.

So in the first set of Smile Jamaica Mutant Dub New Year I fight back as best I know how. Through music and riddim.

<Medical MJ in Arizona vs. Jeff Sessions; 89 sec.>

States rights for Marijuana just like abortion laws, voting requirements and gun laws. Nuff hypocrisy

Even in conservative Utah, our governor believes that Utah Medical Marijuana is an inevitablity.

And why shouldn’t he? His name is Gary HERBert; 78 sec.

I know I have nuff aches and pains myself to qualify!

Seven Leaf relief soon come to the Beehive State. Selah!
