I don't know that 12", jb, but if it is the one quadruped mentions it likely is Carlos' Spread Out (which contains that line in the lyrics, Rock Dis Ya Music). Doubt Purpleman has two different takes on that riddim, so my guess would be it's the Spread Out / Boom It Up combo. Maybe quadruped can confirm later?


Somewhat belatedly, I've located the Shuttle 12" (SH002) and can confirm that Rock Dis Ya Music is Spread Out / Boom it Up.

The other side is listed as Rasta Vibration and is credited to Don Carlos & Mother Liza. It's actually Don Carlos singing "Ababa John I" followed by Liza doing something which is possibly called "Me Can't Tek Di Nowadays Man".

Apparently, there were at least two female deejays who used the name Mother Liza so I'm not sure if this is the same one who made those records with Kojak (Bam Bam, Sky Juice, Fist to Fist Rub a Dub etc)

Thanks again for the Purpleman mix, BMC. Keep up the excellent work.

For those that missed it back then:

Since it takes me more and more time to bring new mixes these days and I've had several requests for re-uploads of some of my older ones, I figured lets start with that. First one that was requested more than once is this mix I did 5 years ago (2009) and one I'm still very pleased with: Purpleman A Go Nice Up The Area! Purpleman recently joined Facebook and is doing good by the looks of it, find him there. He shared this mix on his profile after I posted it on my FB-page. I've slightly updated the mix on some transitions and effects volume (lowered) and for this occassion added two additional tracks that were not in the original 2009 edition since I got the Purpleman 45 in question after making the mix at the time: Level Vibes Pumping. So worth checking even if you already heard the 2009 edition. Updated track- and sourcelist as follows:
