So gwaan get your dusty tape decks serviced by your local radio repair shop
and ghetto-blast this one ya slice of '88 other-worldly dancehall
Straight to a Soundbwoy head!




This is our Dancehall Devotional;
Ghetto original; Our hoarse voices ring;
Backyard confessional...

In humbled surrender and utter awe
We sing praises to Your blinding effulgence;
The divine Mother - in your countless emanations:

From You, most earthy: Big Batty Gyal;
Rope gold garlands of sweat and glitter;
Unapologetic stilettos fracture Death's grip

To You, most exulted: Supreme deliverer of Justice;
Sentences decreed and nay-sayers laid low.
Let nuh boy try fi test!

Hurry come and descend pon we;
Dash out slackness and obstinacy

Rise up Your forces from deep in our hearts;
Make we ready for when the Real Clash starts!!!

Recorded at Aquaboogie Studios, South East Richmond,
and Del Monte Ave Studios, Quezon City

mastered by The Stunt Man at Suite Sound Labs, Vancouver

GyalCircuit Cassette Single

Boomarm Nation is proud to present SEEKERSINTERNATIONAL's GyalCircuit,
the lead single to the forthcoming full length LP, “HER.IMPERIAL.MAJESTY",
due out worldwide June 16, 2015.

We set things off in fine style with the minimalist bubblers meditation of the title track, GyalCircuit. Cosmic, hypnotic and ready to smash up the dance, SKRS creates a swirling framework built from analog synths firmly grounding a weightless looped deejay toast, exposing the embers of SKRS unique brand of sound system music.

The B side finds Boomarm Label boss GULLS in dub conference along side SKRS, together creating a burned out overdriven VERSION. Replacing the stark, implied spaces of the original with a pummeling 4x4 kick drum and looping sub bass, piled high amidst classic SKRS "bruk" vocal chops and cosmic throws to towers of tape delay and spring reverb.

This is SKRS and Boomarm Nation’s ode to all the Universal Gyal them. Get with this!


SKRSxMX7xMYSTERYFORMS presents theShopApprentice

     The long-standing relationship between SKRSINTL and the Internal Circuitry Studies (ICS) faculty bears fruit once again!  This time: a triplex collaboration between SKRS, AgentMX7 and MYSTERYFORMS taking the form of a limited edition poster+tape+digital super combination punch, entitled...


     In celebration of the seeker in us all - working through inertia and circumstance, fatigue and doubt, poor weather and low signal strength, in efforts to raise our antenna and tune in to His Master's Voice.  Taking a page from one such soul apprentice's private journal entry, together we sing:

A hurried sip of dark tea and I'm out!
Pedalling off into my small shop corner of the galaxy,
Multiple sunsets away, another work day awaits.

In the charged dim light, the Master's song 
Intertwines with soldering fumes; 
and after a friendly exchange,
The repair work begins:

Re-routing faulty signal paths;
Deoxidizing rusted contacts; Purging failed components - 
Anything that gets in the way of pure Electricity

I've yet to develop a steady hand at this tho;
I still tremble at Your mere presence.
How do I make the leap across open circuits?

     Available now on the always vital ICS Library Records imprint, each limited edition combo pack you purchase includes a signed and numbered two-colour Risograph poster by MYSTERYFORMS and an exclusive 6-track EP on cassette and digital by SKRSxMX7.  All proceeds go to the ICS Arts, Crafts and Livelihood Program for Cultivated Living, an essential ICS initiative to help put food on artists' tables, cover portions of their sometimes impressive electricity bills, while continuing to make their works accessible and available to you and the community.  Thank you for your support.

     Original illustration and poster design by MYSTERYFORMS.  Edition of 70.  Two-colour, three-pass Risograph print on 11in x 15in, off-white, 80 lb. drawing paper.  Lovingly printed by Erica at Moniker Press.   The inherent limitations/beauty of Risograph printing causes each edition to align and register colours slightly different from one another (see photo above);  each edition resulting as a unique print - no two posters are ever identical!  Signed and numbered by the mystery man himself.
