Montreux Jazz Festival or Portugal’s Sudoeste Festival) during the last 18 months the new album finds the fans ready and waiting.
The 14 new tracks feature classic reggae tracks in a range from Rub a Dub like “Hot Stone” to uptempo Steppper like “On The Way”. This musical reggae backbone features the brilliant Dubios Neighbourhood band and captures their great performance which is so well known from the live shows.
The album also consists of solo acoustic tracks like the first single “Somebody” and features additionally various tracks in a downbeat / trip hop style like “Truth Behind It All”. The production of those Downbeat / Trip Hop was handled by Peter Hoppe who is well known for his work for groups like Boozoo Bajou, Trio Eletrico or Trinah.
