Another roots gem will be released on the Roots Tribe Records label by the end of october. None other than London based singer Cyrenius Black performs the uplifting “Sufferation” tune. His confident voice is accompanied by the Dynamite horns section, giving the riddim its tight and slick character. The A-side is rounded up by a horns version of the vocal tune, followed by two dubs on the B-side, where Slimmah Sound seasons the riddim with some serious echoes and delays. We look forward to the upcoming release. Give thanks!
