Soul Sugar / Chase The Light / Gee

Reggae from a real band that rivals the sound of New Zealand`s mighty Mike Fabulous and Lord Echo. Parisians, with Thomas Naim on guitar, Jahno and Yvo Abadi sharing percussion duties. Centred on Guillaume “Gee” Metenier playing a whole range of keys.

They cover Jackie Mittoo`s reworking of William de Vaughn`s Be Thankful, Augustus Pablo, Timmy Thomas and Jimmy Smith. With the Funk of The Wailers with (Lee) Scratch (Perry). Banging and crashing like (King) Tubby taking on The Skatalites. Originals ring with the clavs of Peter Tosh`s Equal Rights. The Soul of Mittoo, Walker and Black`s After Christmas. Get Up And Get It rocks like a Mod Jazz dancer. Boris Gardiner`s Melting Pot. Billy Hawk`s Oh Baby. Hammond B3 and Wah Wah licks. Then the Dubs stretch everything out in the sunshine. Versions that make great companions to Tradition`s recently reissued Captain Ganja And The Space Patrol.
