Since they started making music in the late 90´s Dogu and Kabanjak of Ancient Astronauts shared a deep love for original Rockers Reggae, Dub, conscious Dancehall Reggae and fat Boom Bap Hip Hop. This love always came to light through their productions, be it their original compositions, remixes or mashups.
Ancient Astronauts moniker for releasing Reggae and Hip Hop mashups in the past years was The Beatstalkers, who had some vinyl releases on mashup vinyl label Foot Forward Music. Some of these vinyl only releases (Pyramid Funk & Dynamite Reggae Vol. 1 & 2, Modern Stalking EP) sold out quickly and were played on dance-floors all over the globe.
Now it´s time to follow up with that tradition of crossing Reggae Music and Hip Hop. These 4 songs combine lyrics and samples by Nas, Buju Banton, Tha Alkaholiks, Beats International, Fela Kuti, Lee „Scratch“ Perry and more. Ancient Astronauts added their trademark of booming Hip Hop Beats and forward thinking grooves to create unique new versions of some old time classics.
This is BOOM DUB!
