*Winter Solstice 21.12.2016* Longest night of the year in the north. The sun rises 9:30 a.m. and sets 3:30 p.m. here in Helsinki. So she is up for 7 hours.. But from now on the day gets longer day by day towards the Spring Equinox. Some find refuge in music. Some in major chords and some in minor chords. There's quite a lot of Finnish music in minor. As in "Finnish melancholy". This track is not an exception. 2 minor chords derived from Peter Tosh. Inspiration from the man, Judge Dread. As these chords might set the mood sad for some, others find hope in them. "There is light in the end of the tunnel". Anyhow, I waited for the winter to release this version, where I think it fits best. I made this completely renewed dub mix live and direct in the studio for a Salamari Soundsystem session this summer. The original track is the title track of the Dreadlock Tales debut album SynchroniCity from 2007. Give thanks to the most High for the miracles of nature. Mystery. Something bigger is behind. The biggest.
