a sublime blend of ambient electronic pop, dubbed out 4-way vocal harmonies & blissful, bubbling sound effects - joyous & inspirational.

stallone's & gengras’s experimental, drifting melodic meditations are ornamented with the congos’ soulful vocal leads & 4-part harmonies. this is the 9th volume of a music & film series pairing contemporary artists with those that may have preceded them in style &/or approach. this record has distinctly modern, bubbling , quirky, energetic pop perfectly enhanced by the emerging & dissolving vocals of the legendary dubbers. johnson’s tenor, myton’s falsetto, burnett’s baritone & fyffe’s cosmic vocal glue command singularity & create a glorious essence combined. comes with a film documenting the musicians’ time in jamaica.

daniel recommends: "perfect fusion of drifting psych meditations from sun araw & gengras, with brain soothingly hypnotic vocal harmonies from the congos."

jason recommends: "old guard & young turks meet in glorious collision of sunshine reggae vocal harmonies, blissed out guitar reverbs, unearthly synth treatments & heavy dub bass lines. psychedelic reggae awesomeness!!"

matt recommends: "dream collab between modern psych soundscape legend sun araw & old school reggae greats the congos - it's as awesome as you'd imagine".

leo recommends: "sounds like no music i’ve ever heard before - a sublime blend of ambient electronic pop, dubbed out 4-way vocal harmonies & blissful, bubbling sound effects - joyous & inspirational".
