• Rootikal remix Cornell Campbell 'There's A Fire'

    Rootikal's David Hill and Ashley Beedle travel back in time to the post-ska, rocksteady sounds from the long hot summer of '67 with their mix of Cornell Campbell's 'There's A Fire'.

    Utilising the Soothsayers horns parts from the original album cut (on Cornell Campbell meets Soothsayers 'Nothing Can Stop Us Now' on Strut), and of course the wonderful lead vocals, Rootikal come with an authentic slice of vintage Jamaican lawn-dance music.

    Think Studio One and Treasure Isle – glorious, bumping, soul-drenched tunes from the likes Slim Smith, Alton Ellis and Phyllis Dillon, and you won't be far off.

    Scheduled for release in October on a Strut 45, which will also carry the version – you can listen to the track here: https://soundcloud.com/rootikal-sound-1/cornell-campbell-feat
