The Grinders Diversify On Sophomore Album “Under Arrest” by Patrick A. Brown
Following the 2013 album “U-Brown Meets The Grinders – Lets Keep Jammin” feat. Ranking Joe,
The Grinders and Down The Bush Records have turned their modern day Reggae rub-a-dub
offering up a notch, with a more diversified follow up album titled “Under Arrest”.
The Grinders along with their label Down The Bush Records who hails from France, have sought the vocals of the Original 70”
Pionner Dj Ranking Joe, Lady Ann the First lady DanceHall, Sizzla Kalonji the man of a million rhythms, the talented London-
based Dancehall Mc Tippa Irie, the heavenly and mystical Abajonai, long time collaborator singer drummer Squidly Cole,
Tabby Diamond the mighty Diamonds lead vocal and U-Brown to create what they consider to be a very special “vocal blend”
for this project. From the veteran fire branded roots artist Sizzla Kalonji vibing and echoing over pulsating, yet soothing dub
melodies in “Can’t Sit Down”, to the young and emerging Abajonai offering words of encouragement in a more bouncy
“Life Goes On”, is proof The Grinders intend to bridge musical generation gaps with their modern rub-a-dub music.
Producers U-Man and Chalice Cooper who are earlier known for collaborating with jamaicans like Ranking Joe, U-Brown or
Sizzla with “folk riddims” by U-Man are the Original founding members of The Grinders.
The duo takes an “anything goes” approach to creating music hence their productions can scarcely be described
as any definite genre. By melting 70’s & 80’s influenced reggae from dub thru dancehall to hip hop and free range floaty sounds
they have managed to create these classic rub-a-dub tones.
