Jah9 Steamers A Bubble Official Video + Lyrics

Jah9 - Steamers A Bubble, Shamala / Hit Bound Records

Available on 7" vinyl with exclusive dub mix by original Channel One Engineer 'Soljji' Contact steamersvinyl@gmail.com to order


Steamers a Bubble is done on the Apartment riddim, originally recorded in 1982 by the Roots Radics band for producer Franklyn 'Ben Up' Irvin (Shamala/Hit Bound Records).

In its 2013 incarnation, the riddim has been aptly renamed 'Inna Di Yard'. It pulls significance from the many groundings with legendary guitarist Chinna Smith at his world-renowned St Andrew Park compound. The numerous visits, reasonings and jam sessions on this compound also spawned the 'Inna Di Yard' music-documentary series a few years ago.

Jah9 is one of the many musicians who gathered in St Andrew Park and, even in their early encounters, the guitar Melchizedek took note of the lyrical prowess. After the recent launch of her New Name album, Jah9 is set to embark on a European tour with a few other regions in between. The collaboration between Irvin and Jah9 for this single has been a few years in the making but nonetheless timely. The single has, in effect, heightened Jah9's momentum.

After some 40 years in the recording business, Channel One will celebrate its anniversary with a special commemorative release which will include the latest track from the artiste Jah9.

Founded in 1973 by the legendary Hoo Kim brothers, the Maxfield Avenue-based studio was the starting point for many greats like Sly and Robbie. In its formative years, Channel One recorded some of the biggest tracks in reggae history, churning out hits from The Mighty Diamonds (I Need a Roof) and Delroy Wilson (It's a Shame), among others. It produced a solid string of hits in the period of 1973-1983.

JAH9 - STEAMERS A BUBBLE LYRICS

Inna di Yard St. Andrew Park  
Music a bubble, Steamers a bubble  
Bun chalice a bubble from morning to dark  
And the fire pon the forward jus’ a blaze up  

Inna di Yard St. Andrew Park  
Music a bubble, Steamers a bubble  
Bun chalice a bubble from morning to dark  
And the fire pon the forward jus’ a blaze up

One thing to overs ‘bout to Jamaica  
we are the confidence of the African continent in the RasTafari  
No influence is greater, and the state of the nation is Testament to why
the people a suffer from a dis-ease of the mind  

them have them enemy as them deity so dem worship the blind
but the real Black Madonna is the right full divine  
and the King and Queen crown same time
balance!

Inna di Yard St. Andrew Park  
Music a bubble, Steamers a bubble  
Bun chalice a bubble from morning to dark  
And the fire pon the forward jus’ a blaze up
 
Inna di Yard St. Andrew Park  
Music a bubble, Steamers a bubble  
Bun chalice a bubble from morning to dark
And the fire pon the forward jus’ a blaze up  

The fire jus’ a blaze up  
Burning out the evil while the music free the people  
The herb a bring the healing,
and the word a bring the knowledge weh we take up  
wicked get shake up when the consciousness wake up

Inna di Yard St. Andrew Park  
Music a bubble, Steamers a bubble  
Bun chalice a bubble from morning to dark  
And the fire pon the forward jus’ a blaze up  

Inna di Yard St. Andrew Park  
Music a bubble, Steamers a bubble  
Bun chalice a bubble from morning to dark  
 And the fire pon the forward jus’ a blaze up  

From generation to generation
the tradition of righteousness is passed on 
from the ancients, setting a precedence of excellence  
ritual devotion onto the mastery of the instrument  
strings, wind, percussion and vocal  
Nyabinghi vibration, one two order  
The Most High meditation 
with the high-grade marijuana

 Inna di Yard St. Andrew Park
Music a bubble, Steamers a bubble  
Bun chalice a bubble from morning to dark  
And the fire pon the forward jus’ a blaze up  

The fire jus’ a blaze up  
Burning out the evil while the music free the people  
The herb a bring the healing,  
and the word a bring the knowledge weh we take up
wicked get shake up when the consciousness wake up
