Stay Alive


Hollie Cook has a new album out now- Vessel Of Love. I haven't got it yet but her previous two albums, the dub album done with Prince Fatty and various singles have all been favourites of mine. Her lovely sing-song voice and Lover's Rock/pop reggae is top stuff. The new album was trailed by two songs last year and recently by a remix from South London's reggae outfit Hempolics. Grippa Laybourne's lo fi reggae stylings strip back Hollie's original track, adding some bounce and some 70s rhythms. This was available as a free download via Soundcloud but seems to have vanished - the track to stream and the free download. Hopefully posting it here won't get me in to trouble.

I have got the album but not had chance to listen to it yet. I'll give it a spin over the weekend.

It's on the bloody list!

That reminds me, I need to dig out my Prince Fatty albums?

Vessel Of Love is one of the early 2018 albums I've been most anxious to hear (another is the new Wye Oak album). I love Hollie's first two LP's and the dub album. I missed this remix, and I'm very glad that you shared it!
