Scotch Bonnet Presents: Puffer's Choice Vol. II (Various Artists) on CD
Following the success of 2016's Puffer's Choice Vol. I (SCOB 007CD/LP), the label arm of Glasgow's Mungo's Hi-Fi has selected more cream cuts from their globe-trotting link-ups celebrating sound system culture.
The album starts with Bim Sherman. "Lightning And Thunder" is a Mungo's remix of a vocal supplied by Adrian Sherwood.
French collective Subactive's aquatic dub imagining of "Follow Me" by UK garage/grime project Wolves, featuring the voice of Bo* Johnson.
Supercat straddles Chief Rockas's update of the classic Gunshot riddim for a reprise of Don Dada's 1982 hit "Dance Inna New York".
The vibes then travel bang up-to-date with a sparse Mungo's fix of ethereal singer-songwriter Nem's 2017 eco-breakout "Purest Force". Jamaican chanter Isha Bel is given a belly-battering bass blend by Aquarius.
General Jah Mikey, channeling Burning Spear for his own "Ites, Green & Gold", rides a deft digital riff by bald-head New Zealand-based super-producer Naram.
Danny T & Tradesman build an industrial-strength base for anti-violence lament "Up Deh": a rare vocal outing from Iration Steppas' Mark Iration.
Then it's time for Poland's Dreadsquad to ease the pressure with swinging one-drop vibraphone instrumental "Space".
JA meets "Glasgae" for "Feel Good", an uplifting collaboration between Jamaican singer Skari and Scottish producer Escape Roots.
Earl 16, wraps his pipes around Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart", helmed hauntingly by Capitol 1212.
Scotch Bonnet's own Thomas Stalawa gets everyone marching to a beat inspired by Steely & Clevie's "Dem Bow", as dangerous Spanish emcee Ponchita Peligros demands all in attendance "Run The Calypso".
The album ends with a request from un-categorizable Israeli collective Trillion featuring General G that puffers choose wisely - via anti-cigarette missive "No Nicotine".
