Daptone Records is proud to present! Mikey General "It Choose Me" b/w Earl Maxton "Prattle" - the latest offering from producer extraordinaire, Victor Axelrod - AKA Ticklah.

Jamaican reggae and dancehall singer Mikey General reconnected with Axelrod during the pandemic to create “It Choose Me,” a throwback to the early 1980s analog rub-a-dub style that has become a touchstone for reggaeʼs global appeal. Axelrod had used the backing track years ago with Rob Symeonn for a song called ʻJah Only,' Luckily for us MG loved the track and blessed us with this instant classic.

On the flip is the instrumental/dub mix, “Prattle,” featuring keyboardist Earl Maxton on clavinet. Axelrod, known for his signature analog productions and dub mixes created at his Brooklyn studio, was able to coax the enigmatic Maxton back to the studio after a 15-year hiatus in St. Lucia, where he has been handcrafting soundsystem loudspeakers using paper made from indigenous plant fibers. So sit back and enjoy the fruits of these three legends!
