Rocker T and Version City Rockers
Version City Lady 7" (King Django/Stubborn Records)

By: Alex Steininger

With Django's new vinyl-only label in effect, King Django Vinyl, you knew he was going to be bringing us some good ska cuts to help define his label and let everyone else know what makes it so grand. With Rocker T and Version City Rockers he's done just that.

"Version City Lady" is a nice ska-dub number that will get you moving. Right when I put it on the old record player, it instantly got me going me. As I stood there swaying, my feet started to tap to the music. Yes, the music started to vibrate my body. Pretty soon a loud ping comes through the music, and even when I listen to it now, it comes so unexpected and I instantly turn my head and jump at the same time, before realizing it is the music. Quickly recovering (both the song and I) it jumps back into the music while I go back to my routine.

Backing "Version City Lady" is "Fiya Bunn Roam," another ska-dub track with a reggae touch. Personally, this song is a lot catchier and has a little more dance packed with it, so I think this song should have been the A-side. But all and all, this is a pretty good 7". Highly recommended if you like dub.
