Having a smashing start of 2014, working on four albums with Tropical Storm, Joggo Seedorf, Stefaan Collieman, Vernon Maytone, a few fine EP’s, and a lot of single tracks. (Not talking about the secret projects lol) Giving thanks everytime, happy to find out that although I stopped using the name NOT EASY AT ALL PRODUCTIONS the Dubshelter studio is honoured for it’s sound even more than ever before.
So giving thanks to all artists that find their way to my humble studio, let me say I am ready for it, more love, more music!

All real instruments + excellent players + masterful engineering = A GREAT NEW ALBUM! Sounds just like it was recorded in 1982. In fact we had to read the jacket notes just to make sure it really is new recordings. No joke. Great performance by Lady Ann and welcome appearances by Prince Jazzbo, U Roy and the under-recorded Ricky Chaplin. Nice, smooth vocals from Vernon Maytone, in sort of a toned-down Glen Washington style. Bravo!

“a Brinsley longplayer by the highly-touted Dutch double-team of Jahsolidrock and Not Easy At All Productions. It’s an album of which all involved can be proud.
Unlike April’s Chezidek outing by Jahsolidrock and House of Riddim, ‘Urban Jungle’ returns to the familiar Not Easy At All sound.”
great review at Reggaemani, written by Erik Magni:
“Urban Jungle is no exception with its live instrumentation and full horn arrangements. Far from it. It may be their finest work yet and they’ve managed to capture Brinsley Forde at his very best.”
Q: How did you link up with the Not Easy At All crew / Dubshelter Recordings? (currently one of Europe’s premier production houses based in Amsterdam).
A: (Laughs) Jah works, you know! Someone from their crew called me and I voiced a track. They loved it and it developed from there. “Gonna Make It” is a new one, actually a single of my brand new album.
Q: Right after the compilation album, you released “Words Of Wisdom” (Not Easy At All/Music Life Movements). I mean this sounds like your best work that you put out in the 1970’s.
A: Yes, I like that album. We are working together permanently. I enjoy working with these bredrin, so big up Manu Genius!
Second Review in and again it’s a real nice one: Check out Ras Achis blog if you like to read an intensive review!
thanks to Ras Achis:
‘Overall, unless I’m really forgetting about something (and I probably am), this is my favourite album that JahSolidRock has done Continue reading
Large 5-star review and entering the charts at reggae-vibes.com.
“Thus it ain’t really surprising that “Urban Jungle” — a consistent set that features impeccable bass driven riddims, mellifluous vocals, and inspired horns arrangements — brings back to mind some of the finest and most memorable moments of Aswad. The inspired mixing of Manu Genius shines bright throughout the entire album and also sonically this album is of high quality, which makes it very pleasing to the ear.”
