Focused on “Roots Reggae experimentation”, Bass Culture Players, a musical Project based in Madrid, will take you on one great sounding journey through drums, beats, and plenty of relaxing sways. It’s like a laboratory of sounds that “mixes singers and musicians from Spanish scene in search for a very personal formula”.
Foundation EP comes in as a most recent release from the group, officially handed over to the fans in September of 2014. It’s filled with 8 awesome dub/reggae tracks some fully encompassing the roots sounds of the 70s and early 80s. Perfect for a midday work/study break and a little escape from the surrounding reality.
Here is a little info about the vocalists from the album:
Payoh Soul Rebel is a young artist settled in Valencia, currently lead vocalist in Jah Macetas, one of the first and ground-breaking Spanish reggae bands. His versatility can be tracked down in his recent recordings, but “Forgiveness” from Foundation EP displays his whole soulful potential. A unique tone, invaded by the Mediterranean light and warmth.
Prento is one of the big surprises in Madrid reggae scene of this year. Early 2014 witnessed his debut with his clairvoyant “No time”, but now he surprises us for his deep serenity in “Stop this Madness”. His name might sound new, but his voice reveals that he is been on the road for a while.
Mighty Mike is the unclassifiable voice from the one-of-a-kind band Blueskank. Known for his varied registers, form acoustic to electric, this track will still surprise you because of his profound delivery. “Reggae Life Composer” is simply irresistible.
