CrudoBilbao SoundLabel presents ISLAND GROOVE by Antxon Sagardui, in collaboration with numerous vocal and instrumental artists. This is a journey through experimentation with 808 sounds, atmospheres inspired by Trap, Lo-Fi, or Liquid Dub combined with drum patterns inspired mostly by the Jamaican rockers of the 70s and 80s in their lazyest cadences. 12 tracks that combine vocal cuts with instrumental cuts starring classic reggae winds, pretending to immerse the listener in Jamaican grooves through the most current sounds and atmospheres inspired by the urban music.
Among the vocal tracks, there are collaborations of Adala, Isabel Sharpe, Lootah, Beñaranks, Irie Nanara, Ranking Sepah and Amets. Direct lyrics that are sung in up to 4 languages (English / Patois, Basque, Catalan and Spanish) that give off originality, while inviting to reflection and dance. Three of these tracks are remixes and there is also the cover POR EL SUELO(Manu Chao, 1998) with which the Singer Amets closes the album.
Among the instrumental tunes there is the opening track by Johan playing the trombone, a cut with the sax of Akzi, another one with the trumpet of Alberto Sanzol (outta The Mousehunters) and the complete brass section by Hamaika Roots. Except for the first one, the rest of the instrumental cuts follow a previous vocal versión on its own riddim.
As usual in the works that Antxon Sagardui released under CrudoBilbao SoundLabel, the artwork is done by the master called Ribo.
