Majical x Kibir La Amlak - Do You Know? / Haile Selassie Dub 7" Before Zero Records
Majical, a wordsmith, undefinable by genre. An MC and a Rastaman that's journeyed through garage, grime, hiphop and reggae to arrive at his own destination he's coined as 'roots hop culture'. Part of the RU1 Fam, a UK hiphop collective who received international recognition for their debut album Otito in 2018.
'Do You Know' started out as a dubplate on the 'King of Grime' instrumental by producer Lewi B. Majical penned this song to exalt the many earthy achievements of 'King of Ethiopia' Emperor Haile Selassie. On hearing this version, Kibir La Amlak approached Majical to make a new version of the track together, that brought it into the world of UK Reggae Sound System he hails from. The track was first recorded in 2017 and then remained as a dubplate, championed by UK sound system 'Iration Steppas' and South African sound system 'Kebra Ethiopia'. It was also performed as part of the Kibir La Amlak live dub show on numerous tours around the world. After countless requests, Majical and Kibir La Amlak both felt that this coming anniversary of the birth of Haile Selassie was due time to release the track for public consumption. Its since been re-recorded, remixed and remastered and is now available on 7inch Vinyl!
