"Music is psychology. And if the music does not penetrate the heart, the soul, the mind, and the body, then you ain't gonna feel it.
Because reggae music is not something that you hear, it's something you feel.
And if you don't feel it, you can't know it. It is a spiritual music with spiritual ingredients for spiritual purposes."

Inna Black Ark style

Among many other things, I love the sound of the Black Ark, and the poetry of William Blake. Here's the result of trying to mix both together. Based on Blake's sublime "Auguries of innocence" poem, "Some are born" is one of the projects I've been working on for a little while. Played by the wicked 18th Parallel band from Geneva, and mixed by the just as wicked Al Breadwinner.
Coming some time later this year. Still hesitating to release it on vinyl or not, it will depend if people like the song... If you're allergic to phaser, you're risking your health. If you're not, please lend it an ear here !

Voici la vidéo.
