A Summer of Matic Horns releases:
Matic Horns 'North Star Horns' for Rootikal Selection
The latest in a string of killer overdubs for Rootikal Selection 45s has just been recorded and is slated for an Autumn release. The original track, which was produced by Jah Thomas, laid by the Roots Radics, and mixed at Tubby's, didn't ever see the light of day, and while good in it's own right, the Matic Horns piece takes it to another level. Hold tight!
