Music: Soothsayers – Tradition

Having released music for the best part of two decades now, Brixton-based Afro-Dub group Soothsayers have come through with an incredibly positive and colourful new album on Wah Wah 45s titled Tradition.

Their heavy, dub and afro-beat sound on this album is layered with heavy drum grooves, beautiful guitar leads, infectious basslines that are perfect for the dancefloor and a political message that speaks for unity and love. Musically, this is some of the best dub music you’ll hear. Swirling saxophone and percussive leads permeate throughout this album beautifully, such as on the lead single “Dis & Dat” or on the incredible afrobeat groove on “Sleepwalking (Black Man’s Cry),” which features label mate Dele Sosimi. Their music just captures the beauty and soul of Africa and the Caribbean effortlessly, and with their politically and socially charged lyrics, capture sentiments that vibrate through many of us trying to fight for and embrace social, spiritual and creative freedom. One of the most energetic projects to come out this year by a long mile.

You can listen to Soothsayers’ Tradition below via Bandcamp, and make sure you support this project in any way you can. Released via Wah Wah 45s.
