Big splifs and big beats. Naturally, I'm mixing a reggae track for one of the most notorious herbsman of our life time and Hawaii's top reggae artist. This track features a duet from Marty Dread and Willie Nelson defending the sacred herb. Sighting such historical references as "it was found on the grave of King Solomon." What more evidence do you need to realize it was put here for man's use?
The track was produced by Million 7 and features a hard hitting dance hall riddim reminiscent of Gregory Isaacs or Dennis Brown. We also mixed 3 additional dub versions along with the main version.
I mixed this record at Coast Recorders in San Francisco on the Neve 5088 console. Manley Slam! on the drums. Culture Vulture on bass and Pultec Eq's into the Atomic Squeeze for Willie and Marty's vocals. Mix buss processing was the Chandler Curvebender EQ into the Manley Vari-mu. Mastering was executed by Michael Romanowski. I LOVE reggae and I LOVE Willie Nelson. This mix was too much fun!
