After fine album releases of The Inspirators, I Kong (“A Little Walk” & “Pass It On”) and Swiss vocal duo The I-Twins (“Masterplan”), roots reggae label Fruits Records outta Geneva, Switzerland now gives those who are eagerly awaiting their next project a glimpse of what to expect from the forthcoming album “Primate meets Horsemouth”.
Primate consists of a group of fine musicians including Primo Viviani (bass), Mathias Liengme (piano, organ, percussions), Léo Marin (rhythm guitar), André Merlin (lead guitar), Anthony Dietrich Buclin (trombone), Thomas Florin (trumpet) and Reuben ‘Ras’ Telford (melodica, Solina string ensemble, Elka organ, glockenspiel). And then there’s also the legendary drummer and Rockers movie star Leroy ‘Horsemouth’ Wallace, who beats the drums! Furthermore involved – as mixing engineer – is Spanish master genius Roberto Sánchez, known from many great works with artists like Earl Zero, Noel Ellis, Earl Sixteen, Vin Morgan. Alpheus and others.
Reggae veteran Cornell Campbell aka Don Cornell or Don Gorgon graces a wonderful riddim with his trademark falsetto voice, showing that, after more than 50 years in reggae business, he’s still capable of delivering a huge tune that sends shivers down your spine. Although “Lovely Feeling” might make you think that this is a love song, it’s a beautiful spiritual roots song. The flipside contains Ras Telford’s take on the riddim. This fine musician treats the listener to a thoroughly entertaining instrumental piece reminiscent of Augustus Pablo’s “Far East” sound. Only 300 copies of this vinyl single are pressed, so get it while you can!
