INTRINITY RECORDS RELEASED “LEGALIZE THE HERBS” BY LUTAN FYAH.
On January 1st 2018, InTrinity Records released their first single titled “Legalize The Herbs” by Lutan Fyah. A single promo release from the much anticipated and massive various artist and
riddim compilation “Everlasting Doors”. As a heady introduction for the project and label, Lutan Fyah delivers a powerful message. One for all family operating ganja farmers past and present who may continue to endure pressure from the effects of legalization and commercialization. This is a lively chant from the modern Spanish Town legend, and sure to bring awareness on a cutting edge issue many can relate to.
The “Everlasting Riddim” was recorded live, inside InTrinity Records studio, and produced with Leroy “Horsemouth” Wallace, legendary drummer and leading actor from the roots movie titled, Rockers. The drum and bass link between bassist, producer, recording and mix engineer of the track Lawrence “Congo” Mendoza and Horsemouth, embraced roots and modern inspiration, fire and conviction, to produce a powerful song such as “Legalize The Herbs”. Recorded in an analog path using simple analog gear made for roots sound, and mixed by Lawrence Mendoza inside sound treated and designed InTrinity Studio, this riddim track was destined for purpose.
The “Everlasting Riddim” musical contribution includes legendary musicians highly important for the movement and sustenance of roots rock reggae abroad! Including, modern guitar legend Tuff Lion on Guitars. Highly respectable and prominent producer Laurent “Tippy” Alfred of I Grade Records based in St. Croix Virgin Islands, on organ and piano. Percussionist, and drummer, Scott “Big Natty” Davis, perfectly balanced the riddim and groove with a rhythmic percussion that solidified the riddim. The unforgettable horn section by award winning Celebrity horns, (Trumpet: Balboa Becker and Saxaphone: Daniel Casaras) a driving militant force and melody for the riddim. Angelic background vocals by Chamile “SoulRebel” Marks embrace the lead vocals and message. Modern synths and pads bring energy to the listener and build foundation for the riddim, as well done by Lawrence Mendoza.
Lutan Fyah inspired by the herbs legalization in his hometown, voiced the track inside the legendary Anchor Studio in Kingston Jamaica, where The Fugees voiced “Fu Ge LA”, and more on the Refugee Camp Album. This certainly gives the message a high quality character and soundscape you can feel. The track was a journey for Lawrence “Congo” Mendoza to produce and each musician shares the conviction and passion that reveals in the riddim with the heart and soul of other well-known chants for Legalization.
