-  September 25th, 2015 by

The album will be out under the well known Bizzarri Records label and will be distributed by Self Distribution.

One year ago Lion D left for Shengen Studio in Kingston, Jamaica where he spent several months working side by side with one of the most famous reggae producers in the world: Alborosie.

“HEARTICAL SOUL” unites the talent of two excellent Italian artists who have combined their great passion for music and for reggae, creating an explosive cd with a very ‘Jamaican’ sound, made of twelve brand new tunes and of a dub version, too.

The album is entirely produced by Alborosie, who, both took care of the artistic production and played drums, base, keyboards and guitars in almost all the songs and who involved in this project. Some of his best musicians: Tony Tarantino and Dave “Fitzroy” Green and Sid Gaetani of Bizzarri’s crew.

A work paying tribute to Roots Reggae, moreover the presence of one of the great artists of world reggae scene as Ken Boothe can only strengthen this theory.

Other artists featuring in “HEARTICAL SOUL” are Mr Vegas in “Jamrock Nice” and the outstanding voices of Kemar Williams and Sandy Smith in “Rude Bwoy Thing” and “Talk About Love”, next single to be released very soon.

‘Heartical Luv’, Ruff inna Town’ and ‘Blaze Up’ are the first three singles anticipating the release of ‘Heartical Soul’, the new album due to be released on Bizzarri Records.

Loving Lion D vibe! Some great dub style and many collaborations on the album; our fav being the one ft. Alborosie.  Check it and bless it family!

GIMME ONE RIDDIM

-  May 18th, 2014 by

Opening Night of Gimmie One Riddim 2014 had a full house Thursday night.  Full of positive, dynamic energy in the atmosphere! A seem-less, engaging fusion of contemporary and traditional dance and theatrical performances to the Riddim of Ska!

This production presented contemporary dance, from the best of North America’s dance talents. Their body language was more than just dance, they expressed the Jamaican culture in mannerism and Patois dialect.

Using both audio and visual media, producers and choreographers Jasmyn Fyffe and Natasha Powell creatively incorporated a tribute to the pioneers of Ska music; A time when Jamaica’s independence penetrated the world and became the forerunners in music, media and performing arts. –I really enjoyed the use of Monica Simon from JBC News, Walk Good LOL.

Big Up to triple threat artist Jasmyn Fyffe on a stellar live vocal performance. –Irie J.  The intertwined dance choreography; the silhouettes and the tableaus were an ingenious work of art that climaxed on the sounds of a 7 piece band under the musical direction of Gerald Heslop. Gimmie One Riddim delivered back to back acts that expressed authentic stories of life, love and levity!  This production is more than just a must see, it is an enlightening experience and tribute to the culture of Ska!
