The line has been made official so I don’t have to be quiet anymore So I am delighted to let you know I’ll be playing at on the 3rd of August in the 18 inch corner at Reggae Geel festival. Even more cool is that I won’t be playing alone but will be sharing the stage with a couple of my closest relations in my music:
my close brethrin Saimn-I who joins me often to provide vocal power to my sets, the man with the golden voice Collieman, fabelous singer Paul Fox comes over from the UK and the Moonshine horns will provide some nice brass melodies. This is gonna be awesome. We plan to mix up our tracks and collaborations and have to oppetunity to make it one dynamic set. Come check us out in the 18 inch corner.
Here’s a live preview of a new track in progress with strong vocals by Paul Fox called Survivor. The riddim is an uptempo binghi driven one drop type a thing. I made it during a day off from work meditation vibes. The preview is from the KINGKOP festival where Paul Fox, Saimn-I and me played at the end of April. The track was recorded a couple days prior. We made a quick mix of the riddim to drop it at the festival as we were all excited about it. Saimn dropped a lethal part 2. the plan is now to have saimn do an mc-part at the second part of the song. A bit like in the clip. This however still needs to be recorded. Shouldn’t take to long I hope

Big up to the KINGKOP festival for the nice set up, Ion Youth for letting us play on there soundsystem and the crowd for the nice vibes.
I added a preview of my 2009 12 inch release with Carlton Livingston & Jah Melodie on my soundcloud for all to listen too. The riddim track was one of the first real riddims I created. Basicly a collage of couple of loops and a tuff bassline on top. It was one of the first glimpses of studio magic I guess. All pieces just came together and it fitted. As I wasn’t at home as much behind the sliders and knobs back then and didn’t have the gear I have now the tracks where mixed by Dougie Conscious (Carlton side) and Shiloh Ites (Jah Melodie side). The end product is pretty hardcore 12 inch which 3 mixes on each side. The 12 inch is pretty much sold out in most shops but looking it issuing them as a digital release. Stay tuned for more news on that.
