Standard Edition Black Vinyl.

b/w Screechy Dan "Bandits / Who is Leon Dinero? From whence did he come? The soulful singer dropped his f irst single this past June, tearing up a ska version of Lee Fields & Sugarman 3's classic "Lover Like Me". Backed by The Frightnrs, and with Victor Axelrod in the producer's chair Leon returns with "If You Ask Me", a gorgeous piece of wax t hat draws inspiration from the deep vaults of Jamaican Rocksteady. Originally penned for The Frightnrs' debut long player but never tracked as such, t his version showcases Dinero's timeless vocal deliver y - his voice etched with honey-dipped imperfections that call to mind the classic vocals of Alton Ellis and Hopeton Lewis. Gracing the f lip-side is "Bandits", a lyrical takedown of the continuing gentrification of New York City that rides the A-Side's instrumental in pure Jamaican DJ style. Vocal duties for t his stellar side are brought to you by Screechy Dan, who's often described as the glue that holds the NYC reggae community together. Beyond his classic tunes like "Pose Of f" and "Big Bills", Screechy has nurtured generations of young artists, sound systems and selectors, forging deep ties that bind Jamaica to New York and veteran artists to the new school. Victor Axelrod expertly handles the production by employing the rhythmic powerhouse that is The Frightnrs to help mine the sweetness of rock steady for the A-side whilst tempering it wit h the drum and bass toughness of classic rub-a-dub for the f lip. We're looking forward to much more to come from this extraordinar y group of musicians!
