Feelin' Irie! Review

by Steve Leggett

Drawn from their 1996 album Free to Move on Doctor Dread's RAS label, "Feelin' Irie" was one of the perkiest and brightest singles Jamaica's Israel Vibration ever released, and while it isn't exactly experimental, it does manage to sound roots, dancehall, pop, and hip-hop all in one motion, which is hardly an easy trick. This EP features the album mix of the song, an equally as strong DJ Briggy version, a track with just the Roots Radics' backing instrumentation, and three illuminating dub versions. Fun stuff, and it's impossible to sit still while it's playing.
