If you ever dived once into Reggae, Dub, Ska and al … you probably stopped by now to confuse any pastiche or jam in the genre with the original Jamaican art (and it’s central diaspora). Of course it doesn’t mean this music cannot be reread or rewritten anyhow but here it’s pretty hard for me to define or understand what is the point of such a production. Electronics, guitar, drums and various horns or brass, laying some loose grooves and lines with obvious reggae gimmicks or tricks (melodica, upbeat, long echo etc.). All pretty pale and flat, no riddim at all. Half a real concern and the rest a private joke? Give us real, no dressing.
