“Smile Jamaica” is the new, various artists, album by the German soundsystem and producer team Silly Walks Discotheque (from Hamburg). Since their last album, “Sorms of Life” released in 2012, Silly Walks have scored some massive worldwide Reggae hits such as “Smile Jamaica” by Chronixx and “Dreams of Brighter Days” by Busy Signal & RC, both featured on the new album.
Most of the tracks are brand new exclusives and feature vocalists like Jesse Royal, Ikaya, Gentleman & Torch, Patrice, Marcia Griffiths, Assassin a.k.a. Agent Sasco and Christopher Martin, and that is just to name a few. Most of the riddims on the album have been played by Gentleman’s band, “the Evolution,” lead by the drummer Joe Coppola, while other riddims have been programmed by Jr Blender who has been working on most of Silly Walks’ recent releases.
The overall sound of the album is contemporary, yet classic. Parts of the riddims have been recorded on original 1960s analog equipment only, while others are state-of-the-art modern Club Reggae. Purchase on iTunes: http://geni.us/smilejamaica
