SONG OF THE DAY Ticklah – Nine Years


Today’s song takes us on a winding dub journey going back 10 years to 2007 when renowned producer Ticklah first released Nine Years.  

Victor Axelrod, aka Ticklah, is an independent Brooklyn music producer and artist who has been an integral part of the NYC music scene for well over a decade now.  As an artist he has been a founding member of Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra and the Easy Star All-Stars, and as a producer he has co-produced and mixed the very successful  Dub Side of the Moon album.

Ten years on and Nine Years has been rediscovered and reissued via Greece’s record label, Melting Records who have launched a brand new series of records called MRSPECIAL.  Their plans with this collection is to feature a different style of music each time, with their Humble Dubbers compilation focusing on (yes you guessed it), old-school dub, roots and reggae!

Included, for the first time on vinyl, is Nine Years, a crisp and enticing slice of mysterious-sounding dub which is going down very smoothly…listen above.

Humble Dubbers was released three days ago and from what I’ve heard so far, is an album well worth checking out!  There is plenty more juicy dub just waiting to be discovered..so what you waiting for? Listen and purchase your copy from here.
