With 'Dubcatcher 3: Flames Up', Russian producer DJ Vadim creates a third episode in the adventures of his reggae superhero creation. In the track list, regulars like (Ras Demo, Inja, Big Red, Jamalski, Earl Sixteen, Syross and Jman), but also newcomers like Jamaican Mr Lexx, British Claire Angel, T.O.K.'s Roshaun 'Bay-C' Clarke, Ward21's Suku, Parisian Galak Spiritual, the Italian delegation Lion D and Raphael, or Vadim's compatriot Tenor Youthman. Stylistically 'Flames Up!' is probably the most eclectic part in the series thus far, as in his tracks Vadim this time plays with genres like hip-hop ('Yung N Powerfull' feat. Bay C), jungle ('Nuff Years' feat. Ras Demo), trap ('No Hype Man' feat. Jman & Killa P), and of course reggae; adding a blend of tablas, djembes, Japanese flutes and Brazilian guitars on top. Our favorites from the track list: Claire Angel's dancehall vibes in 'Mi Gwarn' and 'Party Hard', 'Manipulators', classic Earl Sixteen, 'Ta Tell U', in which Ras Demo takes us on a fast paced trip through reggae history, and especially 'Corrupted', in which Big Red together with Sr Wilson and Jman evokes the heydays of Raggasonic, and finally 'Rude Boy', a song over a revamp of the classic Swing Easy riddim, in which Lion D, Raphael and Syross also throw in fragments from The Fugees' 'Fu-Gee-La', Tenor Saw's 'Ring The Alarm', and Cocoa Tea's 'Eighteen And Over'. Dubcatcher strikes again!
