7" Vinyl

Product Description

A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of introducing our studio band – THE 18TH PARALLEL – first official album ‘Showcase Vol. 1’ with Lone Ark. Today, The 18th Parallel are back with three more singles starring three giant singers from the golden age of Jamaican roots reggae. From day one, Fruits Records main purpose has always been to enforce collaborations between Swiss musicians and Jamaican singers from the golden age of reggae. These three 7” singles mark a new step to achieve the label’s goal: connecting different generations from different cultures through their love of roots reggae.

The second song of this triptic by The 18th Parallel features the voice known for legendary song ‘The Drifter’ originally recorded in 1969 on Moodisc and later recut by Dennis Brown: DENNIS WALKS. The Swiss producers met Dennis in downtown Kingston in winter 2017. They played a mid-seventies type of flying cymbal riddim to him and a few minutes later Dennis was in the recording booth singing ‘Long Struggling’. One take, no second cut, no lyrics written, pure heartical vibes. Dennis Walks, hidden treasure of the roots reggae era, is surely one of the greatest voice of Jamaica, stronger than ever at almost 70 years old. On the B side, The 18th Parallel grace us with a terrible instrumental cut led by melodica and Elka Rhapsody synthesizer. This is the Edelvibes Rock!
