Track Of The Day: Horseman - 'Computer'

The new music selections continue with this superb and highly addictive slice of dancehall reggae from Horseman. Even though this was released last year in 2014 (and there are quite a few 2015 tracks waiting to be featured), I'm going to feature this as Track Of The Day before it's "newness" expires too much... 

Following three decades of working with the creme de la creme of the reggae world, Winston Williams aka Horseman released his first LP in November 2014. 
As fearsome a drummer as he is an MC, Horseman has worked with musicians and producers Tippa Irie, Max Romeo, Gregory Isaacs, Sugar Minott, Jah Shaka, Mad Professor, Barrington Levy, Eeka Mouse and The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra with John Holt - to name but a few - most recently performing with Hollie Cook and Prince Fatty. It was while playing with renowned outfit The Ruff Cut Band in 2003 that he met producer and long term collaborator Mike 'Prince Fatty' Pelanconi. 'Dawn Of The Dread' was recorded at Studio Dub in Thailand before being mixed at Prince Fatty's Ironworks studio in Brighton. "Mike just asked, "you ever been to Thailand?" and we went. There were great vibes, we walked in and it all fell into place. We were looking to get that 80s digital sound and all that original equipment was just there waiting for us. It was fate".

'Dawn Of The Dread' features in RW/FF's Albums Of 2014 list, which you can find HERE.
And the brilliant 'Computer' is included on 2014: The Best Of, a two-part mixtape which can be heard HERE.
