    Ritchie McDonald & Glen Brown Realize / Determination Skank

    VP Records
    • Ritchie McDonald & Glen Brown – Realize
    • Ritchie McDonald & Glen Brown – Determination Skank
    • 1. Realize
    • 2. Determination Skank

    This 7" packs two heavyweight punches. First up Glenn Brown and Ritchie Mcdonald's 'Realize' is a deep roots nugget and an immortal jam that really hits a sweet spot. The loose drums, stoned vocals and swaggering bass are dusty reggae perfection that immediately take you to warmer climates. On the back side, 'Determination Skank' is a horn heavy dub that gets you banging your chest and losing to the skies. This is a limited, one-time press so it won't be around for long - dub heads will need to act fast.
