ABOUT THE ARTISTS involved in "THE LION OF JUDAH HATH PREVAILED".
THE PROCESS MEETS GHETTO PRIEST
--------------------------------
THE PROCESS:
The infectious grooving sounds of Detroit's legendary rock reggae sensations THE PROCESS are making believers of the masses with their blend of high energy rock and the grooving warmth and passion of reggae. On a mission to fight ignorance, apathy and social retardation, THE PROCESS has been at the center of attention and controversy , while breaking new ground with their uncompromising attitude and performances. THE PROCESS catalog of recordings crosses barriers and breaks down stereotypes that will keep even the most discriminating listener interested.
--------------------------------
GHETTO PRIEST:
Ghetto Priest aka Squidz is one of the most flamboyant, creative performers to have emerged from the London music scene in the past few years. Like the community from which he hails, Ghetto Priest is a man at ease with multiple musical visions. Walk through the streets of London and you begin to grasp the flow and the rhythm that has produced his unique sound. It’s a community of exchange; African/Caribbean and Irish, Asian and English, each mixing and informing the other, lending beats and grooves, keeping things fresh and new.

SKIP "LITTLE AXE" MCDONALD:
Little Axe is the alias of Skip McDonald, a blues performer whose list of credits also included work on some of rap music's most influential records. As a member of the Sugarhill Records house band, Skip, along with Doug Wimbish and Keith LeBlanc played on a number of the most seminal records of the era, including the Grandmaster Flash classics "The Message" and "White Lines." After exiting Sugarhill's ranks, the group worked at Tommy Boy Records, where they teamed with producer Adrian Sherwood to develop his famed On-U Sound. Sherwood subsequently convinced the trio to relocate to London, where they were rechristened Tackhead and fronted by vocalist Gary Clail. By 1992, McDonald adopted the name Little Axe and returned to the blues of his youth, albeit a brand of blues informed by his latter-day musical experiences.
--------------------------------
DAVID HARROW:
Producer and programmer David Harrow is one of the busier and more elusive figures in techno, often shrouding his assorted activies under a variety of aliases. Among Harrow's earliest projects was a remix of the 1990 Depeche Mode hit "Enjoy the Silence". He later collaborated with artists ranging from African Head Charge to Psychic TV to Gary Clail, and also worked with the On-U Sound System and Andrew Weatherall. He also recorded under the guises Technova and James Hardway.
--------------------------------
ADRIAN SHERWOOD:
Long one of the most influential and innovative figures on the U.K. reggae scene, producer Adrian Sherwood and his famed On-U Sound label pioneered a distinctive fusion of dub, rock, and dance that made waves not only in roots circles but also in the pop mainstream. Since the mid-'80s, Sherwood is among the most visible producers and remixers in all of contemporary music, working on tracks for artists as varied as Depeche Mode, The Cure, Simply Red, Sinead O'Connor, and Ministry. He became involved in industrial music, producing tracks for Cabaret Voltaire, Skinny Puppy, KMFDM, and Nine Inch Nails, and although On-U Sound continued to reflect its leader's eclectic tastes, the label has remained a top reggae outlet. Sherwood has recently released two solo albums on Peter Gabriel's Real World imprint.

CONGO NATTY A.K.A. REBEL MC:
Congo Natty A.K.A. Rebel MC is an English jungle producer and toaster.
The '80s popster turned proto-jungle revolutionary was born Michael West in 1965 in London. He formed "Double Trouble" in the early '80s with Michael Menson and Leigh Guest, releasing the ska-pop hit "Street Tuff." Rebel MC later gained fame in England as a pop/rapper, but by 1991 he had released "Black Meaning Good", an album that presented jungle with hardcore techno married to dub basslines and ragga toasters such as Barrington Levy and P.P. Arnold. His 1992 singles "Rich Ah Getting Richer" and "Humanity" also showed the new direction. "Code Red" -- released as Conquering Lion -- became an outright jungle smash in 1994, bringing the jungle movement to the British masses.
