EB Premiere: Naram’s March of the Gremlins

Today’s exclusive EB Premiere comes from Wellington, New Zealand producer Naram, the latest addition to the digital (and beyond) reggae tag Jahtari. The foundations of their debut March from the Gremlins were built on a battered iPod picked up within Hanoi, it’s provenance questionable, during a bicycle trip across Eurasia. However much of the dust plus grit accumulated on the road has been lose in the subsequent analog reworkings (it was recorded to tape and classic gear features heavily). The result? A double album of warm-sounding crossbreed reggae boasting an impressive line-up of UK veterans stepping up on singing duties including eighties fast conversation originators Asher Senator and Peter King alongside the ones like Jah Screechy, Sammy Gold and Speng Connection. There’s new blood too, with phlegmatic Leipzig MC Jane Bee making a first appearance appearance on the stand-out “Conquer Me”. The cover art, featured below, comes from King Midas’ Kiki Hitomi.

Like what you hear? You can pick it up on double vinyl fabric or digital direct from the Jahtari website from January 21st.
