Essential Free Download: Author "Jah Live (J. Robinson's Lion Heart Version)"

It's no secret that we've been championing the sounds of Author for some time now. Made up of UK producers, Ruckspin and Jack Sparrow, the duo's second album, "Forward Forever",  became a cult classic in bass music circles. For me, the standout track on that album was, "Jah Live", a deep, dubbed out rocker, pulsating with reggae riddims. Now the track has been remixed by J. Robinson, who keeps the dub in place, but rather than broken beats, uses a traditional house music pulse as the backbone. Listen below and grab your free download!

Special Thanks: Author, Ruckspin, Jack Sparrow, J. Robinson for this sick remix, proper bass music and the impressive Outlook Music Festival.
