The Guide Us Riddim is an original roots reggae riddim built by England's very own Russ D & The Disciples Rhythm Section. This riddim has the signature Disciples sound that is considered by many to be one of their best works. Tony Roots, admired to be one of the most original and conscious artists for today and the future, gives us the title track for the riddim.

The Disciples are widely considered to be the leading figures of the UK roots & dub reggae scene which has emerged in the past decade. First making their name via a collection of widely acclaimed dubplates for Jah Shaka soundsystem followed by a couple of albums for Shaka's label. They have consistently led the field ever since.

The group started as a two man operation in the mid-eighties, featuring brothers Lol and Russ Bell-Brown. Lol has since moved off to pursue other goals (including working for London's Dub Vendor shop) leaving Russ at the controls.
