about

ROOTPRINCIPLE was originally released on cassette in edition of 100 copies via NoCorner in 2014.
– this previously hard-to-find album – to our ears one of Seekersinternational’s very best – is now available on vinyl for the first time, remastered by the Stunt Man, and pressed up on high quality wax, served with a re-styled version of the original artwork from MYSTERYFORMS.

We’re really proud of this one, it was always one of our favourites from the NC catalogue, and somehow it felt right to give this one new life again, almost 7 years since it’s original release on tape, and having passed the test of time.

Made almost entirely out of chops from those reggae drum rolls we all cherish so much, and driven by vocal loops from the historic landscapes of Kingston, this SKRSINTL album goes to the deepest dubwise depths of rootical meditation, across 10 tracks, SKRS stylee.

Some might recognise the relation – in sound and vibe – to the more recent Bokeh Versions / NoCorner co-release with SKRS ‘RunComeTest’ – that’s because the tracks from that EP were made during the same era of sound search from the elusive SKRSINTL collective.

Anyway! Without further delay – read the original words to go with the sound, written by SKRS back in 2014, when we first dropped the tape:

“Machete pon left and a dagger pon the right
The seeker sets about on an inner pilgrimage
Hacking thru a dense tangle of circuit overgrowth and corrosion

The lush canopy, seen from above
Belies the dread and danger lying-smiling in wait within
Lions in sentinel; challenging those who profess their fidelity

Steel horn speakers call from towers on high while
Drums rumbling from a distance approach
Where time cuts to the chase, notions leave no trace…”
