Isiah Mentor – Sus Dem Out


Sus Dem Out is a heavyweight collaboration between Roots artist Isiah Mentor (formerly King Tubby’s Firehouse artist Lilly Melody) and Friendly Fire Music producer Robin Giorno, recorded three years ago in Birmingham and just unearthed from the Friendly Fire Music vaults.


We are glad to finally announce the long anticipated release of this ever- relevant Giddeon tune, aimed straight at the heads of governments, on a bass-heavy 808 re-lick of the classic Late Night Blues Riddim.

The sound of Reggae is widely recognised because of its acoustically formed bass and drum downbeat, and its offbeat rhythm section. With such a diversity in style it is also considered complex enough to attract progressively minded musicians. A music that has a strong association with dance covering a variety of styles while also offering a background beat for those sharing Biblical chants of Zion. It is hard to ignore Reggae’s influence and how it interacts with our day-to-day lives. Shared as background music for films and advertising driving its heavy bass lines literally felt wherever rock and pop are played. Reggae has an affinity with mainstream British pop; recognised within the hip-hop culture and considered “cool” by those with no connection to Jamaica. As lovers of reggae my aim is to build a community of reggae followers that can share thoughts, news, events as listeners, artists, DJ’s and hosts.
