Andrew Paul / Pato Banton - Inna Nice Up! Fashion / 12"
Inna Nice Up! Fashion
legendary UK reggae label that launched the careers of artists such as Top Cat, Tenor Fly, General Levy and the late great Smiley Culture, as well as cuts from Jamaican legends such as Cutty Ranks, Daddy Freddy & Frankie Paul amongst many many others, NICE UP! have dug deep into the vaults to find some more lost classics to give them a new lease of life. As a long time fan of the label, NICE UP!s Shepdog hooked up with the owners and managed to secure access to the back catalogue - much of which is being made digitally available for the first time! First up, Serial Killaz pay respect to a scene that helped spawn them by giving Andrew Paul's classic 'Who's Gonna Make The Dance Ram' an updated junglist relick. Retaining the sleng teng vibe of the original, but giving it a 2012 bounce should see plenty of reloads for this track once again. Over on the flip, festival favourites the Dub Pistols rework Pato Banton's 'Nice Up The Session' from the 'Great British MCs' album, giving it a lively drum & bass feel with extra horns and a little help from Rodney P.
