“Africa is in my heart!”

The mighty Trojan Sound System need no introduction. Spearheaded from Trojan Records, an explosive influential musical force, legendary label and household name across the UK and worldwide for over forty years, the duo are infamous pioneers, rocking dub, reggae and bass riddims on dance floors across the world, their roll call reads like a who’s who hall of fame of quality original Reggae and Bass Culture, they are the originators. the instigators and mayhem makers of what we have now come to know as ‘UK Bass Culture’. Their star shines brightly.

Now with an all-new live production set up alongside an audiophile approach to vinyl playback duo Earl Gateshead and Daddy Ad produced an electrifying body of brand new material in the shape of their freshly released EP - ‘Africa’ .

With all five limited edition 12” tracks from the EP selling out in a matter of days and anthemic lead single “Africa” entering straight into the Juno Reggae Charts at No.1 last year, Trojan Sound System now prepare to digitally release a full remix and riddims EP featuring rub downs from the likes of Toddla T, JFB and Darkstarr Diskotek which brings together all vinyl releases to date and more available digitally for the first time on the 24th February, alongside a plethora of full live and Dex N FX shows across Europe.

“Africa” is written and produced by the pair with Superfour and is a track not shy of ripping the roof off the most dance worthy festival tents and club nights, commanding public demand with all stock of the limited edition Africa 12"s disappearing in no time to become highly rare and valuable collectors items.

The song reflects the deep felt need which all people of African descent, now living all over the world feel for their original homeland. This desire was first expressed by Marcus Garvey, while he was living in the USA where he proposed the building of a string of ‘Black Star Liner’ ships, to take the people back to their motherland. Although the song concerns the wishes and hopes of Africans, anyone who feels alienated or dispossessed, can empathise with the yearning to be somewhere else, either on this planet, or beyond it, which underpins the track lyrically and musically.

Aside from the original vocal track and instrumental on the outer cuts, the track also has two killer remixes from legendary dance music producers, Darkstarr Diskotek (aka Ashley Beedle and Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy), using their vast experience and talent as some of the world’s most qualified DJs to stretch the original in to an extended dance floor arrangement and work out. The second mix comes from DMC champ and Drum and Bass and Dubstep producer extraordinaire, JFB, taking the musical vibe of “Africa” into strictly bad bwoy Junglist territory.

“Turn to the East” was written by Superfour, TSS’s energetic and blind vocalist with conscious lyrics and a passionate delivery. The heartfelt chorus is sung by Chucky Banton. The title is inspired by the biblical reference “Look to the east for the coming of a black king” and celebrates numerous black aspirations. Musically, it uses contemporary forms to produce the feel of an ‘80s roots 12” with overpowering bass driving it throughout. Two times DMC champ and Beardyman collaborator, JFB, unleashes a relentless dubstep remix of the track.

"My God" was written by Jah Buck, who takes the lead vocal. He expresses his and the sound system’s roots and reality view on the world we live in and their belief in a higher guidance and heartical approach to the challenges we all face on a daily basis. Toddla T has taken this straight to the dance floor and beyond with a truly unique and explosive treatment that brings authentic reggae and contemporary dance floors together. Trojan Sound System premiered their Dancehall version of “My God” at a sell out show at Scala last year and turned a jumping 600 strong reggae crowd into a mosh pit.

The new TSS material has been smashing up dance floors left, right and left of center. With real instruments, real musicians and quality production, the result cuts through the Dance music and Reggae clutter to deliver an authentic and futuristic Reggae and Bass Culture vibe that gets every floor moving and jumping.

To celebrate the launch of the Africa Remixes EP legendary street artist Mau Mau has produced brand new Trojan Sound System logos and t-shirts, which are available now through THTC http://www.thtc.co.uk
