Alpheus - Rudies

Singer Alpheus and producer Roberto Sánchez are a winning team, working together for many years. Their output, three albums and several singles, has enjoyed fans of quality reggae music worldwide.

They brighten up the dark days of winter with their latest effort, a double-sided 7inch single. It’s no secret that Alpheus has a knack for ska riddims, check the A-side which is an appealing ska tune called Rudies, a song full of dance vibes and calling out all rudies to ‘skank the night away’. The energetic and retro-styled backdrop (thanks Lone Ark Riddim Force Band!) perfectly suits the unique vocal delivery of singer Alpheus. Flawless song!

The B-side is something different, but easily equals the quality of Rudies. The song Our Time Will Come lets us enjoy the rich and warm voice of Alpheus across an early reggae/rocksteady fueled riddim. The tune displays lyrical substance about hope and perseverance which is badly needed in these times.

Rudies is an advance of their forthcoming album to be released in 2020, but the B-side –Our Time Will Come- is a one-off rarity which won’t be available on the album. So get it while it’s still around!

Five star release fi sure!
