Here’s a new release from Nottingham-based DJ and producer Origin One (Kevin Thomson). It’s an advance single from his forthcoming EP entitled ‘Step in Time’.
The EP, due for release on 24th March, includes vocals from Rider Shafique, Nadia Latoya (MELONYX), and K.O.G., and is aimed at highlighting the problems experienced during the Covid-19 pandemic and associated lockdown. With funds from Help Musicians UK as part of a plan to support musicians impacted by the pandemic, the release will be available in a strictly limited edition on vinyl.
As for the single, it’s based on a vibrant up-tempo rhythm borrowed from a classic recording by the Heptones. The top side features effective toasting vocals while the flip side consists of the dub/instrumental version of the backing rhythm track. Great old-school reggae with the added benefit of state-of-the-art production values.
