More Info:

Nkrumah Jah Thomas is one of the great Deejay voices of Jamaican music. Through his Midnight Rock label, he is also known as a formidable producer - making important records with the likes of Anthony Johnson, Early B, King Tubby and Super Cat. His 80s dancehall hit with the latter, "Dance Inna New York", was sampled on the hit single by Nas, "The Don", and in recent years, his rhythms have been sampled by Protoje and Kabaka Pyramid. Acid Jazz group label Roots Records has worked with Jah Thomas since the late 1990s, and is set to release the first ever collection of his vocal work. A versatile and nimble word-smith, The Music Maker from Jamaica is represented by 12 of his most vital cuts. These include his debut hit "Midnight Rock", hits such as "Dance Hall Connection" and "Dance On The Corner", his own versions of "Cool Profile" and "Joker Smoker" (hits he produced for Earl Cunningham, and Tristan Palmer respectively.) Tracks are newly remastered and the package includes sleeve notes by reggae historian Tony Rounce - a must-have for classic Dub and Dance Hall enthusiasts.
