Dennis Alcapone Forever Version

  • Words: Scott Thill
  • Label: Heartbeat
  • XLR8R Rating: 8/10

Call it whatever you want: dancehall, rocksteady, soundsystem, reggae, hip-hop. The pioneer mashing of found tech and island rhythms has already landed deejay Dennis Alcapone in the history books. His toasting method-equal parts singing, squealing, and shouts-out-sequenced the gene for rap, and he could rock a party like mad: Just ask Jamaica. So terminology is needless-just swing back and bounce to the elusive singles that make up this addictive collection. From the swinging "Version I Can Feel" and "Nanny Version" to more Clement "Coxsone" Dodd-produced versions that never get old, Forever Version is a badass breeze.
