ROB PAINE (WORSHIP RECORDINGS)
INTERVIEWED BY VENTURIAN
Rob Paine the man behind a great label (Worship Recordings). What gave you the idea in the first place to start your own label ?
I had some music that needed its own home and with the confidence and financial help of one of my best friends from my youth - we started the label. and so it goes......
I see you have had a good regular night, going in your home town Philadelphia , what can you tell us about that?
The best weekly that we have going on in philly is our friday night at a place called filo's. It is a solomonic sound production and we play roots and culture dancehall reggae, with nuff classics and foundation thrown in the dance it will be going on 3 years in January, 2003 and there is rarely a week where it isn t packed with the vibes strong, a dedicated crowd of all color and age come every week. We are proud of where we have brought this night through positive and uplifting word and sound.

Lotus reviews WOR.CD.01
THIS ALCHEMIST TURNS DUB INTO PURE, GOLDEN HOUSE. Rob Paine starts Worship with some dub reggae and then moves to a more house flavor. A lot of the tracks are from Solomonic Sound. who've been known to take reggae and twist it into dubby, ethereal compositions. The CD also features remixes that are still available and considering this is all from one label, the quality of the music is out standing. Seamless mixing moves the reggae into smooth house with a slight funk whisper with Emotion Detector's 'Cuba Rico. Shades of Jam and Spoon's classic "Stella" reappear in Pete Moss s mix of "Night Life." A medium to downtempo mix
Worship is more for chilling than dancing. It's a lovely ride for the Sophisticated punster and anyone wanting to hear fresh electronic music that's creatively branching out.
