about

Out 25th March, the Sharp And Ready Compilation showcases nine recent releases issued via Tru Thoughts’ UK Sound system platform Sharp And Ready, and surfaces two new exclusive tracks; including one from UK legend Benjamin Zephaniah, The Sea and Yaz Alexander. Representing a selection of the Reggae, Dub and Jungle sounds that Tru Thoughts has been supporting, the compilation highlights the biggest tracks and remixes from Ghost Writerz, Ed West & RTKal, Quantic, Sleepy Time Ghost, Jago and Pete Cannon across the past year.

Starting things off, new cut “Pressure I (Red String Riddim)” is one for the more conscious listeners and DJ's. Its iconic one-drop rhythm is ignited by the Brummie vocals of songstress Yaz Alexander and dub-poet Benjamin Zephaniah alongside quality reggae production from The Sea. Alexander’s sultry calls for an uprising encase a revolutionary message of optimism from Zephaniah, for those weighted heavily by social pressures and in need of some poetic healing.
