Today we are premiering the track “Won’t Suffer” from the Brighton, UK dub outfit Resonators. Following up their second record, Imaginary People, that was praised by Huey Morgan, David Rodigan, and more, they band is back once again with some tougher than tough dub vibes. They have been conquering the UK dub scene with their authentic brand of reggae, drawing their influences from the foundations of original Jamaican riddims, grooves and sounds. “Won’t Suffer” takes you right back to JA but is very much in the present day. Working on a deep bass line, the band proceeds to bring us the hardest dub track we have heard all year, echo ringing out to the fullest as the band give us, as they say, a big tune. Full of conscious lyrics, Resonators have put together not just a track, but a musical movement. For those fans of dub reggae who have not heard what the Resonators can do, this track is the real deal. Not only do they give us some of the most original sounding music that could have easily been mid ’70’s out of JA, but they do it with style, respect, and with feeling. Walk like a champion, talk like a champion, Resonators are here to stay. Cover art from the incredible Jim Sanders, who has done their art from the very beginning.
