With previous release, featuring Koneski and Jojo Gladstone, Massive! sound also stated a promise for more versions of Murda tune. And this is exactly what they are trying to fulfill now. But first, let us remind you about original Murda release.
Koneski, a young producer from Slovenia, with couple of releases for our Massive! Sound Records already, joined efforts with Jojo Gladstone, a Dutch singer and pianist, to produce rub-a-dub style song with 80’s flavor. True fans probably recognized strong inspiration from the riddim masters Sly & Robbie. Tune is packed with delay, reverb and strong snare, that helps with creating a specific atmosphere which is almost a signature sound of Koneski. Combined with smooth vocal from Jojo, it only further emphasizes the dramatic backdrop of the song. We must also point out the powerful message that Murda tune brings.
For this special release of versions, they asked friends from HomeGrown Sound outta Croatia and Green&Tall from Slovenia, to do their best and make versions of Murda, how they imagined it. And trust us when we say they did a great job! 5 brutal versions that every sound system enthusiast will appreciate. One heavier than other!
Green&Tall did a massive re-work of Murda and went even more into rub-a-dub waters. In his versions we can feel the roots of his music production from the time he was still a member of ReggaeMylitis crew, as well as “old school” sounds that are his inspiration. Green&Tall is also a part of Massive! family with a brutal release “Skankin Shapes” for Massive! label.
HomeGrown Sound may be from neighboring Croatia, but we still consider them as one of ours! Back when Massive! did a “We Are All One” project we knew that their musical paths would cross again soon. They did their magic, added signature roughness and mixed it on their priceless mixing board with a steppa style flavour. At the end, the result blew our minds! We anticipated great work from them, but the flip of the original tune that they produced this time is really something!
If you liked Murda from Koneski and Jojo Gladstone we released a while ago, this release is a must for your collection!
