The thread of this documentary film is the story of how Matthew Wilson ( An ex-base Fm selector from â€œThe Rewind Showâ€ ) found true health and well-being after suffering from degenerative disease for 30 years. He and producer Dana Louise Stewart went on a journey to the USA to film and bring to you the testimonies and insight from celebrities, doctors, leading nutritionists, chefs and common folk who have healed all manner of disease through simple methods without medical intervention. Share in the delight of fresh whole raw living foods and how something we all do three times a day can transform all aspects of our life. Its not a miracle, it is not a magic pill, it doesnâ€™t cost the earth, itâ€™s simple, itâ€™s easy and itâ€™s fun.
A great selection of reggae and Dub artists from Aotearoa, Jamaica and USA drive the film forward. Artists such as Cornerstone Roots, Three Houses Down and Earthtone Hi Fi which is a collaboration of Base Fmâ€™s very own DeeJays Selecto and Truent. Also featuring the talents of Heather Bolton whom some may know from â€œThe Managersâ€.Â Â The up and coming Solomonix have two tunes on the album, House of Shem feature with their classic song â€œWhat about the childrenâ€ and the previously unreleased dub version â€œWhat about the Dubâ€. Northlands 1814 with their unique tune â€œWhakahonohono Maiâ€ . A beautiful vocal in Te Reo Maori. So the local scene is well represented while Jamaicaâ€™s King Ali Baba and Kris Kelli both appear. The likes of Luton Fyah who features on the Ital tune from Humboldt county, USA reggae star Jah Sun with â€œNo Bonez No Bloodâ€. Gracing our ears explaining why he chooses to eat the way he does. Also appearing on the â€œReal Nâ€™ Rawâ€ soundtrack isÂ the award winning reggae group from the USA called International Farmers with their tunes â€œOnly Questionsâ€ andÂ â€œSlow Downâ€. Matthew saw these guys live while in the USA filming for the documentary and they had an amazing stage presence and live sound . This inspired Matthew to approach them regarding the soundtrack and they were right into the project especially since Kiwi reggae plays a huge influence on their music according to the vocalist Daniel Primavera.Â Also from the USA the track â€œFree Meâ€ from the group Cipes and the People appears. Lead by Greg Cipes who is an inspiration to so many youth. Some may know Cipes from his acting and voice work on such films and cartoons as â€œFast and Furious 4â€, as Beast Boy on Teen Titans, Kevin 11 on the show Ben 10 and the little lion cub Ryan in Disney's â€œThe Wildâ€.
All in all its a fine selection of tunes for your listening pleasure.
