Walkin' Target is the debut album of producer / bass player / solo artist Ashtech. an intersection of original dub styles and urban electronica, the album is produced and co-written by dub maestro Gaudi with an emphasis on live sound manipulations and high-end engineering. With ashtech's fat basslines laying down deep, dub-wise grooves and Gaudi's solid production trademark imprinted throughout, this roots laden album includes 4 tracks featuring the inimitable vocal stylings by Cheshire Cat from the legendary production outfit Leftfield.
This album draws its name from the title track which tells the story of the Walkin' Target - the sad and true story of a mother who lost her child and did not have the time to say goodbye. This track, in the finest roots-reggae tradition, speaks to the oppressed, suffering and defenseless people of the world, the victims of a system that makes "everyone a walkin' target".
