The dancehall undecim Roots Rising from the Netherlands are finalising details of the release of the LP The Root Sessions.
Crisis, in a live recording, a commentary on the continuing damage of grinding the poor which is still continually justified by the 1% as necessary yet caused by the financial greed of that same 1% at the start of this decade which resulting in banks collapsing, is the second song to be to be revealed from the album.
MrGBlaze is a US based dancehall creator. Within the past twenty hours a new track surfaced.
Fusing a diversity of styles, always centred around a reggae base MrGBlaze creates music that has the listener waving their hips in good-time togetherness in sounds that reach out for unity in a world that so often celebrates it divisiveness.
Prior to hitting play to listen to Wine Non Stop (available on bandcamp), taken from the forthcoming LP WORLD TOUR, invite over your neighbours you have never met, by the weekend you will all be joining and having a street party with everyone feeling included.
Peta Petidis (Vocals), Valentina Griesheimer (Alto Saxophone), Nick Ingham (Trumpet), Leo Zarucky (Trombone), Paul Kascamanidis (Guitar), Emeka Anele (Bass) and Cassie Kumashov (Drums) from Melbourne in Australia form the dancehall-ska septet Morbidly O’Beat.
Morbidly O’Beat – dancehall-ska from Australia
Tickle the bass a little louder than your normal setting and clear some space in which to moon-stomp before hitting play as Morbidly O’Beat deliver their sunny disposition which lights up the room in scintillating off-beat melodies. A variety of brass chorus is given room to evoke of Caribbean originating roots from which the tiered Bass fills the ears in counter-point to the breezy guitar as percussion skips through the ears from which the siren vocals draw in the listener in pouted-lips air kisses.
With limited material to hear and one five track eponymous EP (available on bandcamp) – Morbidly O’Beat is a band to get to know in their early stages of development. Already establishing a live circuit and fan-base locally the septet are an outfit with much to add the the world of music and one can only hope that the dice of the iffy world of the industry turn up with a set of sixes as they are deserving of global reach and recognition.
