SENSI SKANK EP (10 INCH)
UK sound system collectives Reggae Roast rework Ruben Da Silva’s iconic “Sensi Skank”.
Reggae Roast, one of the UK's leading sound system collectives, storm the reggae scene with the release of their new single 'Sensi Skank Reloaded' through Trojan Reloaded.
Paying homage to one of the most versatile plants in the world, 'Sensi Skank Reloaded' is an amalgamation of UK and Jamaican culture, fusing the group's illustrious sound with a classic reggae vibe.
Saturating Ruben Da Silva's #1 track with a deep and heady production, Reggae Roast's latest rework brings an already iconic single back into the musical mainstream. Musicians have championed for the legalisation of cannabis for over six decades, and yet the plant still remains illegal in the music’s birthplace. The video features a number of renowned images from the world of film and television - showcasing a rich tapestry of cannabis culture in cinematography.
Reggae Roast have been at the forefront of sound system culture for the past ten years, having recorded original songs with international artists including General Levy, Mr Williamz, Burro Banton, Tippa Irie, Ward 21, Earl 16 and Charlie P to name just a few. The group are also the first signing to Trojan Records’ new imprint label Trojan Reloaded. Focusing on representing leading UK talent, the label continues to stay committed to the ever-evolving genre of reggae music, reintroducing classic tracks with dancehall and bass filled rhythms.
‘Sensi Skank Reloaded’ is an effortless display of Reggae Roasts’ ability to create a vintage sound with a modern reggae twist, and with the imminent release of their upcoming studio album, they’re coming to take the UK scene by storm. [info sheet from distr.]
