More on a modern tip, UK based producer Frenchie of Maximum Sounds has just released a series of 7″s based on the Bunny Lee lick of the Studio One rhythm Creation Rebel – first cut by Burning Spear and done over for Bunny by Johnny Clarke. This release takes the original 70’s rhythm and updates it, there may be a loop in there somewhere but this is essentially the same rhythm as used by Bunny Lee.
- Johnny Clarke – “Rebel With A Cause” (feat Fantan Mojah)/Konshens – “No More Tears”
- Chezidek – “Teach Them” (feat Daddy U-Roy)/Gappy Ranks – “Heavy Load”
- Luciano – “Hosanna” (feat Mikey General)/Anthony B – “Hold The Faith”
- Tarrus Riley – “Poverty Nuh Inna Fashion”/ Bunny Lee & The Aggrovators – “Rebellion 2010”
Pick of the bunch is probably the Johnny Clarke combination wiith Fantan Mojah where Johnny sings the original Creation Rebel though the Konshens on the flip is solid as well.
