ALCHEMY DUBS PRESENTS: OJAH FEAT. FIKIR AMLAK & DON FE - ON MY MIND/REMIND
Landing on Alchemy Dubs is our third release on 12” format, a very special collaboration between Ojah, Fikir Amlak, Don Fe and Nik Torp.
The A side contains the track “On my mind”, a vocal version of Ojah’s “Mind” riddim that features beautiful vocals and harmonies by Fikir Amlak paired with inspiring and emotional lyrics. The second cut is a vocal dub version mixed in analog live by Ojah.
On the B side we find Don Fe’s excellent flute version “Remind” that takes the riddim to a different dimension with its deep and meditational melodies. The second cut on this side is a haunted flute dub version, also mixed live by Ojah in classic fashion.
The Hammond and melodica featured on both sides have been played by Nik Torp (keyboard player from The Specials) and masterfully recorded through an MCI desk that used to belong to Island Records (hundreds of seminal records were recorded through it, including for example Bob Marley’s Exodus).
Also available complementing this release is ALDBS7007, a 7” that contains an additional Hammond & melodica solo version and an additional dub.
Limited edition of 600 copies, 180g heavyweight vinyl, hand-numbered, served in a thick custom sleeve with amazing artwork by Victor Castro.
