Description

Just in time for Summer, Wrongtom emerges with a new vinyl EP on Tru Thoughts to take over the airwaves and sound systems across the festival season and beyond. Out on 12" vinyl in a full colour sleeve with an eerie, ouija board-inspired theme, the "Possessed EP" continues in the spirit of his series of 'Wrongtom Meets' projects, boasting collaborations with Tippa Irie, JC Lodge, The Ragga Twins, Desta Zion, The Correctional Horns and Deemas J as well as a bonus cut from his long-standing live reggae/dub collective the Stoneleigh Mountain Rockers. The "Possessed EP" uses the killer rhythm from 'In East London' track "Suzy Hangs Out"; this inspired move sprang from a chat about beats with Mark Professor, who happened to pass the rhythm on to reggae singer JC Lodge's husband Errol, who passed it on to JC. Oblivious to all this, Wrongtom was then contacted out of the blue a while later with the beautiful "Possession", showcasing the talent of the revered singer who was signed to Tommy Boy records back in the day and collaborated with Shabba Ranks and many others. "So, with that brilliant track suddenly in my hand, I thought maybe I should get a few different people on this rhythm and do what the classic reggae producers did", says Wrongtom: "release a set of versions". Wrongtom signed to Tru Thoughts in 2013, releasing the 'In East London' album under the Wrongtom Meets Deemas J collaborative name, which brought praise from all corners for its uplifting and celebratory yet down and dirty, vintage dub-infused soundd. The tastemakers who lined up to heap praise on the album ranged from The Quietus, The Wire and FACT to Record Collector, MOJO, Q, Clash and beyond.
