Story

A remake of the track that started MightyZ on his production path - first recorded as a solo effort in 1981 under the guidance of studio guru Steve Hoff.  The tune was loosely based on a riddim from the immortal Black Ark in Dub by one of MightyZ;s biggest heroes Lee 'Scratch' Perry.  It has been a feature of MightyZ's music in many guises over the years - played by Sound System his band in the early 80s, it became known as System Breakdown.  When The MightyZ All Stars fromed in 2007, it returned to the then Dub band's set under its original title 'Starfire Dub'.  When he introduced the riddim to Emiliyah she wrote a song called History for it (which we hope to record for you soon!), even though she was unaware at the time just how appropriate that title was!
