Congo Natty feat. Congo Dubz & Iron Dread (UK)

There is no greater brand name on the reggae jungle stage than Congo Natty. Congo Natty, known as Conquering Lion or Mikail Tafari or Rebel MC, is a producer and rapper, a pioneer of British hip-hop and jungle. His career started at the beginning of 80s when he formed a band Double Trouble and achieved success with such hits as ‘Just Keep Rockin’ and ‘Street Tuff’. As Rebel MC he released a few successful albums with guest appearance of such artists as Barrington Levy, Tenor Fly and Dennis Brown. Then, he established Tribal Bass record company and released a hit single “Tribal Bass” (1992). Tribal Bass transformed gradually into Congo Natty, the greatest name on the reggae jungle stage. In 2013, 8 years after the album “Born Again” had been released, Congo Natty came back with a fantastic new record “Jungle Revolution”. It was mixed by a master of the dub console, a legendary producer Adrian Sherwood from On-U Sound. Among the guests you can hear, for example, a guitarist Skip McDonald from Little Axe, and on the single “UK Allstars” there is a whole cream of heavyweight British and Jamaican MCs: Tenor Fly, Top Cat, General Levy, Tippa Irie, Sweetie Irie and Daddy Freddy. The album is full of incredible mixtures of jungle, reggae, dub and grime. Congo Natty as a rasta explicitly shows that jungle music is a vision of roots reggae worthy of the new age. The record is full of references to the whole reggae output, and the succulent sounds and jungle beats will not let you stand still. He will play during One Love on the sound system stage accompanied by Congo Dubz & Iron Dread.
