Hiss Golden Messenger today released The Sounding Joy: Hiss Golden Messenger Meets Revelators on South Robinson Street through Merge Records. The six-track record comes as a dub remix companion to HGM’s recently released O Come All Ye Faithful holiday album.

The Sounding Joy was conceived and produced by Hiss Golden Messenger’s MC Taylor and longtime collaborator Cameron Ralston of Spacebomb Records/Spacebomb House Band fame. Six songs from O Come All Ye Faithful have been reworked for the compilation in the spirit of pioneering dub artists Osbourne “King Tubby” Ruddock and Lee “Scratch” Perry.

Ralston handled sampling, dubbing and mixing at Spacebomb Studios in Richmond, Virginia. Taylor has long been a fan of dub and reggae who recently penned an article entitled “Reggae Saved My Life” for Relix Magazine.

Stream/purchase a project described by Taylor as “spiritual jazz and dub-influenced” below:
