Lyrics:

The mothership approached.Breaking through the nexus,saw the saucer as it sloped.Andromeda my hope.Traveled many distances away from telescopes.They chose me.A contactee.Needed mongoloid to fuse a brand new breed.They’ll extract my seed,I was the missing link…

Was chilling in the forest on a camping trip.Deep into my sleep,I saw the moon eclipse.It illumed my tent.A vacuum was sent.Beamed me up like Scotty,in a room with vent.

These are the people that I want to be with.(2x’s)

Met their avatar with the light blue skin.Stepped into her chambers,had a big fat grin.Probed my scrotum.With her long thumb.Syringe sticking out,device that made me cum.My jizz shout out into a fluorescent cup.She looked into my eyes,and straight drank it up.Her stomach grew like a big fat balloon.Out of her vagina came a gray baboon.With elfling ears,and reptoid scales.Hair white like hail-don’t even try to tail…

These are the people that I want to be with(2x’s)

Humanoids will sell their own souls for a profit.Not modest.My peoples are so honest,with no wallets.Andromedans communicate with love on their minds.Humans are unkind they’ll find some swine,to cook and dine.It’s time to redefine,the problem with mankind.They’ll pillage up the earth and serve,self,as their god.My council is my brethren on the road that is broad.Forget about facade-my squad is never flawed.Intelligence is passed through the grouping of the pods…

These are the people that I want to be with(2x’s)

RBMA Radio – Jah Shaka Live at Tokyo In Dub (Part 1 & 2)

London’s sound system legend and spiritual bass master Jah Shaka preaches his sermon with one turntable and a microphone. Live in Tokyo.

You’ve likely never seen a man control a crowd in the same way with just one turntable and a microphone – put simply, Jah Shaka is a sound system legend. Jah was born in Jamaica, but migrated to England as a youth during the mid-’50s. He settled in southeast London, began playing music in a school band in the early ’60s, and was soon associated with local sound system Freddie Cloudburst. Shaka eventually formed his own sound system during the ’70s, and his Commandments Of Dub series defined a new sound in dub history, stripping back classic reggae elements and throwing in synths and Shaka’s trademark Synare siren, for a new style of psychedelic spiritual bass. Add Shaka’s sanctified vocals on top, and that’s the essence of the sermon that Jah Shaka’s been preaching since day one.

RBMA Radio – Fireside Chat – Aba Shanti-I

Roots, rockers, reggae! London’s top sound Aba Shanti-I with the cultural notes and some stepper’s delight. Wisdom by the pound!

When they were mere pups, Aba and his brothers were introduced to the roots and culture by their father Alan who ran a sound system. It didn’t take long until Aba was traveling up and down the country chatting his conscious lyrics over heavy dub plate mixes to anyone who would listen. Along with Samari as well as his brothers Blood Shanti and Shanti Roots, Aba Shanti-I released the first single Tear Down Babylon under the moniker Aba Shanti-I And The Shanti-Ites, followed by Zulu Warrior in 1994. Impressed by their success they decided to form the record company with a vibe – Falasha Recordings. Releases on the label included Aba’s The Wrath Of Jah or Blood’s Pure Spirit. Their yearly Notting Hill Carnival session at South Row and East Row is easily one of the most spiritual experiences one could treat himself to, influencing generations of bass heads from Jazzie B to DMZ.

RBMA Radio – Channel One Sound System – Roots & Culture

Channel One with some roots and culture across the airwaves. A special strictly vinyl selection featuring Ras Kayleb on the mic. Rastafari!

2009 saw Channel One celebrating 30 years on the road as one of London’s heaviest hitting roots reggae sounds. Selector Mikey Dread and his brother Trevor grew up around sound systems. Their father, who had run a sound in Jamaica and then Britain in the 1950s and 1960s, passed the mantle of sound to them. Mikey and Trevor began selecting at parties in London in the 1970s and started to build their reputation as a sound. In the past decades they have emerged as one of the UK’s leading dub reggae sound systems, pushing a positive message of unity and strength, roots and culture through Rastafari. Having recently played Notting Hill Carnival for over 25 consecutive years, the sound also plays all over the UK, France, Italy, Norway, Turkey and Croatia. Channel One continue to stay true to the roots of dub, but are also open to the genre’s modern descendents.

RBMA Radio – Fireside Chat – Mad Professor

Mad? Maybe! Nutty? No! UK’s reggae legend Mad Professor in the chat. Dub be good to you.

Having met the man in his purpose-built south London studio, RBMA Radio can assure you that Neil Fraser aka Mad Professor is one of the sanest record producers we have ever met! In fact, the name Mad Professor was first given to him by friends at school, who were amazed by the electronic experiments he carried out as a youth. Having built a radio and telephone system by the age of 10, it was no surprise then that his interest in electronics along with a love of Motown, Philadelphia International, Treasure Isle and music of all types led Neil into the world of music. Famed for his collaborative album with Massive Attack, the Mad Professor has had a long and varied career in production. Whether he is working with reggae legends such as Lee Perry and U-Roy, producing for punk bands like The Ruts or pushing his own Dub-Me Crazy collections, the Mad Professor brings a fresh angle to whatever music he is making.

RBMA Radio – Fat Freddy’s Drop Live at Tokyo In Dub

Live from Tokyo: New Zealand’s finest Fat Freddy’s Drop take their kiwi soul, jazzy dub and rootsy funk to Japan for the first time.

From the underground to the higher ground, Fat Freddy’s Drop is an unstoppable hi-tek soul monster doing it for the love of music. First and foremost a live collective, no two Freddy’s gigs are ever the same. The hypnotic live jam is the essence for Freddy’s hybrid of dub and reggae, soul, funk and hip hop, marinated in jazz and served on Island Time. Established in 1999, Freddy’s watershed year was 2005 when the bros dropped their debut full-length album Based On A True Story, re-writing musical history at home and unleashing Freddy’s slow burning voodoo worldwide. In late 2008, following three solid years of songs being road-tested in tours across the seven seas and some intense studio lockdown, Fat Freddy’s Drop were ready to pull the catch and release their next works. Their second album Dr Boondigga & The Big BW finally saw the light in 2009, followed by a live release in 2010. And while their international profile has slowly but steadily been rising, they have lost none of their independent spirit, still doing things very much at their own pace.

RBMA Radio – Fireside Chat – Peaking Lights 

Husband and wife duo Peaking Lights have created their very own sonic universe: dub-ridden, acid soaked, boogie down. Get familiar.

Peaking Lights are husband and wife duo Aaron Coyes and Indra Dunis. Since relocating from California’s Bay Area to a barn house in rural Wisconsin, the pair have created their own distinctive sound using Aaron’s home built synths, effects units and rhythm machines. Mixing elements of dub and psych rock with synth pop and cosmic disco, Peaking Lights produce songs that are sweetly smooth, yet abstract and haunting. In 2009 their debut album Imaginary Falcons appeared on the Night People label and quickly gained critical praise, but it was the follow-up 936 on Not Not Fun that really brought Peaking Lights into the red. Songs such as Hey SparrowAll The Sun That Shines and Marshmellow Yellow mix lo-fi, dubbed out electronics with psychedelic melodies and punky female vocals – a truly fresh and unique sound. Taking their signature even further, the pair followed up with their Lucifer LP and its twin Lucifer In Dub, and explored even more dancehall boogie styles with their album Cosmic Logic, placing them in a timeless post-punk dub boogie melting pot somewhere between NYC and Nassau.

RBMA Radio – DJ Nori & DJ Muro Live at Captain Vinyl

Japanese club music icons DJ Nori and DJ Muro go back to back. A special 7” only set, captured live at Captain Vinyl in Fukuoka.

A DJ for more than 30 years, Nori lived in NYC during the height of the city’s club scene. While deejaying at a Japanese restaurant, Nori spent his spare time at places like the Paradise Garage and befriended people like Larry LevanDanny KrivitTimmy Regisford, and Louie Vega. 1989 saw him moving back back to his home country, playing at Tokyo’s legendary Club Gold and inviting his friends from NYC over. It’s only fitting that the King of Disco teams up with the King of Digging DJ Muro for this special night. As a member of DJ Krush’s Krush Posse, Muro first hit the scene in the late 80s when hip hop was still just a blip on the Japanese public’s consciousness. But his groundbreaking ‘King Of Diggin’ mixtape series took the beat digger world by storm in the 90s and his work with Japanese hitmakers Nitro Microphone Underground has kept him buzzing in the homeland. In the time between he’s put in work collaborating with stateside favourite stars likeDiamond D, Freddie Foxx and O.C., and esteemed imprints like Blue Note and Stones Throw.
