COME ME/ Nuovo Ep di Fido Guido (Prod. by Morelove Music)

   

E’ da poco disponibile in tutti gli shops digitali il nuovo Ep di Fido Guido intitolato “Come me”. Esso contiene quattro tracce in stile Reggae e Dancehall che spaziano dalle più classiche alle più fresche sonorità giamaicane per un totale di tre canzoni in italiano ed una in inglese. I testi sono stati elaborati dal cantante pugliese insieme ai producers Pablo Morelove e Papa Leu. Nell’Ep è presente anche una collaborazione ovvero il singolo “Anche se” featuring Ensi, noto esponente del Rap made in Italy. Il lyric video del brano medesimo è online oggi su Youtube.

La traccia “Dove il sole” porterà l’ascoltatore in un viaggio immaginario in Giamaica vivendo al fianco di Fido Guido un’avventura ai Caraibi, mentre “Fossi qua” è una canzone sexy ed irresistibile, proprio come la donna alla quale è dedicata.

La quarta traccia si intitola “Love and Harmony”, brano edito ed interpretato sul Social Club Riddim. La produzione del disco è stata curata interamente da Pablo Morelove della label torinese Morelove Music. Le tracce sono state magistralmente registrate, mixate e masterizzate da Papa Leu (Adriatic Sound, Sud Sound System, Bag A Riddim band, Ska Nation band) direttamente dal Salento.
Completo e dinamico, forte ed introspettivo, questo Ep preannuncia l’uscita dell’ album “COME ME” Lp prevista per il 18 gennaio 2021.

WEEK IN DUB / Papa Leu’s new album got a track for every day of the week

Breaking language barriers through the music.
The target has been hit in full with Papa Leu new album “WEEK IN DUB”, produced by the Salento independent label ADRIATIC SOUND.

On the frontline with a lot of topics and high quality music productions always, this time Papa Leu releases a soundtrack dedicated to every single day of the week, individually customized and on the dubline which makes every track peculiar, playing his skills with mixing techniques, musical mood, “sound aesthetics” inclined to original ways every time.

In this way, Papa Leu created his personal synthesis between experimental and “classic” style of dub to start a journey through an innovative sound that will drag people towards new unexplored destinations.

Compositions, instrumentals and master has been done at Adriatic Sound Studio based in Trepuzzi (Italy). This project requested months of preparatory work and we had the chance to find out how hard it was visiting the team in studio who was coordinating the operations in great detail.

Inside the Album there are collaborations with prestigious musicians such as: Emanuele “Rankin Lele” Tafuro, Antonio “Fossa Drummer” Miglietta, Alessandro “Maestro” Garofalo, Luca Manno and Marco Rollo.

WEEK IN DUB is available on all the digital platforms and stores from 24 of December 2020.

Interview with the recording artist Bamm Holt: “I’m ready to tour the World keeping the heritage of my grandfather John Holt alive”

Bamm Holt, recording Artist from Jamaica, based in the U.S., 27 years old, well known as John Holt’s grandson and Junior Holt’s son, is ready to tour the World keeping the message of his great predecessor alive but showing his own musical skills as well. We interviewed Bamm while he is in studio recording his new album that will be released early in 2020.

“Bamm Holt is ready. Mi neva waan people hear mi song dem an’ sey, ‘A John Holt grandson dat an’ him soun’ suh?!’ Right now, mi ready fi di world”, you declared in a previous interview. How much do you think is important to continue to preserve the heritage of your grandfather, the legend John Holt, to impact the World in a positive way?

It’s very important to keep the heritage of my grandfather alive. His influence on the reggae world is so emblematic. His songs gave you messages of love, encouragement and even a party vibe. It’s a honour to be his grandson. That’s why keep his name alive is my main goal right about now.

“Mi glad to finally get it out. Wi making different music, something dat people can look forward to listening”, you told the american medias.You sound like a very versatile artist. You can easily switch from reggae, raggamuffin to hip hop. Which is the musical genre that you feel you are most used to?

 I feel like I’m most used to Reggae, as it was the first type of music I heard the calling of reggae from the day I was born. Coming to America at a young age I grown to love hip hop. But reggae will always be my first love.

“One Thing” is your song produced by Gold and Goals Productions that got great feedbacks online. We could appreciate you in a brilliant reggae-fusion version. Your father, Junior Holt, is gonna be also a big inspiration for you. What is the main thing that you learn from him in this artistic journey?

Thank You. “One thing” is also one of my favourite songs.

Yes, my father is a main influence on my career. He taught me to never give up. In life, music, doesn’t matter.

You keep to represent for Spanish Town, your parrish in Jamaica, but from a while you are living in New York. As you said the approach with this city make you understand your attitude for hip-hop music too. Which are your biggest influences of the USA hip-hop scene? And with who would you like to have a feature in the next future?

When it comes to hip hop I don’t really have an influence. I just figured out that Jay Z and Kanye West sampled one of my grandfather’s song in one of their albums. I think it was Encore. It would be a pleasure to work with them.  

You are actually working in the American market already and you are ready to drop your new album early in 2020. What do you expect from the European market and what are your goals in this side of World?

I really don’t know what to expect from the European market but I hope my music will get a good reaction over there too. I know they are in love with reggae. I just want to provide them with that musical genre. My goal is to hopefully tour that side of the World soon, by the grace of God. In the meantime look out for the “1000 Volts of Holt”, a tribute/remake for John Holt with me and my Father Junior Holt.

What is the main message you want to convey to your peers who are trying to undertake your same career?
The main message I want to convey to my peers is that music lives in all of us: young , old, new and the faded ones. It’s just you to find your right tune.
Can you give a special greeting for Gege Vibes Magazine?
Big up Gege Vibes for this interview. Major plans for the future. Going to mash up the new year.
