Now it can be revealed

The "famed" Ari Up/New Age Steppers track "My Whole World" was actually sung by Elmer Fudd loaded up on helium.

On U <-> Mikey Dread

Found these On U riddims on Mikey Dread songs:
African Blood/African Dub (Congo Ashanti Roy / Singers & Players) -> Childhood Days (Mikey Dread)
Breaking Down The Pressure (Congo Ashanti Roy / Singers & Players) -> Autobiography (Mikey Dread)

Update: Of course I'm hardly the first to catch this. David of Skysaw.org documents and explains here http://www.skysaw.org/onu/artists/singersandplayers.html

Dub of NYC

Lately I've managed to chase down some records which involve NYC dub, as far as I can tell the mixer/producer is Victor Rice. Stuff including Version City Sound Clash, Crazy Baldhead and 33HZ/Strikkly Vikkly. Labels are Jammyland and Redbud Records. Chase it down, ts an original sound .
