Joe Armon-Jones & Hak Baker - Wrong Side Of Town 12" EP Aquarii Records

Product code: AQU007

Joe Armon-Jones teams up with Hak Baker & Nubya Garcia on new EP Wrong Side Of Town.

.

Wrong Side Of Town is the first in a series of releases on Aquarii dedicated to a tradition of ‘dub’ music. Now recognised as an intrinsic part of the UK musical landscape, dub music evolved from the music brought to the country by the first wave of Caribbean immigrants in the 1950s and 60s, a continuum that also takes in more contemporary genres of British music such such as jungle, drum & bass, dubstep, grime, and more.
.
This is exemplified by ‘Nubya’s Side Of Town’, an example of the traditional ‘horns cut’ that would appear on the b-side of roots reggae 12”s in the 70s and 80s, and which on this release is provided by Nubya Garcia, one of the most celebrated saxophonists in the UK jazz scene today. ‘Nubya’s Side Of Town’ was also played by legendary UK sound system founder Jah Shaka, in one of his last sessions before his sad passing in April 2023.
