Emeterians vocal trio strike back with a brand new album Lockdown Project co-produced by Cosme Deyah. The 10 tracks were recorded during lockdown in Spain, in August 2020 with the final release on September the 17th 2021 via VPAL Music.
Emeterians (Sistah MaryJane, Brother Wildman & Maga Lion), the harmony group from Spain, bring 10 new tracks with a different flavour on their 7th studio album, produced with Spanish producer based in the UK, Cosme Deyah.
With two singles released in mid-2021, Be Careful with Forward Ever Band and Call Me Anytime You Want, the trio drops two perfect references of what the album is all about: classic Roots harmonies over a mix of Reggae, Rap, and Dub instrumentals built, recorded and arranged by themselves. A perfect blend of traditional Jamaican music with Rap and Soul, with their own touch.
The Lockdown Project starts with the autobiographical gem Our Story in which the group sings about their beginnings and their London experience. This album has a new taste, mixing 808´s with classic skanks on some tracks like Irie and Not Dem, talkbox and vocals perfectly blending on Super Lady with J.M. Boix on lead guitar, a re-lick on the classic riddim Real Rock in which they tribute some of their favourite Reggae artists. With great featurings from Kumar (ex Raging Fyah) and Tubby Boy (emerging UK Hip Hop artist) on Outta Babylon and Tell Lie Vision in which they mix Hip Hop with classic harmonies, make the album complete.
“Our music and lyrics are specially meant for the new generations, because they are the future. In this project we mixed modern elements like 808´s, trap hihats or even some sampling to our classic style of Reggae so we can also connect with the younger audience all over the World, while keeping faithful to our style and fans” said Maga Lion, who mixed and mastered all tracks, except for Be Careful by Saul Wolf.
Emeterians met again Cosme Deyah to record new music in Summer 2021, so maybe a Lockdown Project Part 2 will soon be a reality.
Meanwhile, they are preparing for 2022 stages, and it will soon be possible to see them in concert in Europe and other parts of the world.
Lockdown Project is available on all digital platforms.
