Alex Burkat (The Night Owl Diner/Third Ear Recs) might love reggae and all of its off shoots as much as Worship Recordings’ label boss Rob Paine does. This project was destined to happen at some point along the way, but it wasn’t until Alex moved back from NYC that they got into the lab together to create this ‘Herbman’ release. In doing so they used some old analog gear alongside a little digital gear to stay in balance with the universe.  

The ‘Original’ mix is definitely for those bigger room scenarios. A full up tribal tech stomper with some massive low end as you would imagine with any Worship release. The vocal dubs out so long it becomes part of the tracks riddim leading into some dark overtones that growl their way through until the end.

 The boys utilized a section towards the end of the original to create the ‘Acid Dub’ mix. Add in a groovy little acid line and call it a day. A super fun tool if you are not into the breakdowns and vocals of the original. 

P.S. 118 caught Rob’s attention when they recently played at one of his ‘goodie’ events in Philadelphia. The sound and energy they were expressing was honest & pure. It needed to be harnessed into a remix for Worship. With in a few weeks they handed in this remix to round out the package perfectly. Adding the deeper element that was needed but without the loss of vibes from the original. Well done indeed.
