CRISIS - Abassi All Stars - 10" SINgle


2005 sees for the first time the release of a series of Deep Root 10” singles, the first of which is the ‘Crisis 10” featuring vocal pieces from Kenny Knots, Sister Rasheda and Fitta Warri alongside Dubwise from the Abassi All Stars – all mixed and produced by perch in the Zion Train studio and featuring the Zion Train brass section.

'Crisis' has been played on Iration Steppers, Vibronics, King Shiloh, Jah Tubby and perch’s Abassi Hi Power systems. The ‘Crisis’ rhythm features in the Zion Train stage show and was originally conceived in a Milano hotel room on a laptop whilst under the influence of Piemontese blueberries. Brass overdubs were recorded in Cologne as was Fitta Warri's vocal, but Kenny Knots and Rasheda were recorded in London. Kenny has previously recorded for many labels including London's Conscious Sounds and Rasheda has recorded for Jah Shaka Music, Augustus Pablo, Disciples and her own Lioness Music imprints
