Modern Dub Master and Producer Emmanuel Okoronta (the Black Cat), who emigrated form his Ibo tribal village in Nigeria to California several years ago. This is his second ROIR release. The first Black Cat Dub (ROIR cassette A-203) introduced his deep bass/percussive roots psychedelic style, reminscent of his heroes, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and King Tubby.

“Gato’s vocals weave through the mix like an alleycat on a night prowl. Human voice and traditional tribal percussion* move with and against the rhythm,… he must be counted among those who are injecting renewed inspiration into Jah music.” – Elena Oumano, Reggae Historian
