hugo lobo 1018

On the closing of a successful and productive stage with "Stay Rude" and the recent edition of the single "Ska Is The Way" in Europe, the trumpeter and producer Hugo Lobo opens the way to the release of his third album "Neigborhood Rules", entirely produced and arranged by its creator in Trovador Studio.

With a more traditional sound and vindicating the golden times of the Jamaican ska, this new project - defined as the most important of his solo career - gathers and immortalizes in ten songs the legacy of notable musicians of the genre of all times such as:

Lynval Golding (guitarist and vocalist of the legendary band The Specials),

Ken Boothe (also called "Mr. Rock Steady", who performed in Buenos Aires in 2017 as part of the Ska Unity Argentina festival),

Gaz Mayall (referent who shared the stage with ska legend Laurel Aitken), Kenrick Rowe (drummer of the beloved Rico Rodriguez and artists like Barrington Levy and Dennis Brown.) He is currently part of Aswad),

Carrol Thompson (considered the best female reggae performer who worked with artists like Sugar Minott, Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder),

Val Douglas (bass player of reggae icons like Marcia Griffiths, Toots & The Maytals, Bob Marley $ The Wailers and The Skatalites),

Hepcat (who on this record make their first recording since their return as a band), the Jamaican Publik Report, and the current guitarist of the Skatalites, Natty Frenchy.

In the framework of his tour in London during 2017, Hugo Lobo managed to gather most of the ska players in England, where he began recording some of the voices that are presented on this album.

In addition to the first level winds, the multi-instrumentalist Lobo was also in charge of the batteries, keyboards and mixes of most tracks.

Dear Associates (Northern Branch),

as you might be aware this September marks a decade since $%$%THE BANKS$%$% and then literally everything else ...failed.

To honour the highs and perpetual, constant, and seemingly worsening lows that have ensued since September 2008, SMORGASBORD DJ's will be dropping financial crash-inspired bangers. You can bet your bottom dollar that the revolution will be monetised. We’re taking it to the next quartile with fiery jams at one of favourite venues, and some more nasty suprises++++ splattered throughout the evening. Come in your best banker attire (suits, ties, briefcases, no emotions, etc) or get down in your 99% normcore.

It’s gonna be lit.

The following may or may not be played depending on share value increase:

ABBA £ Aretha Franklin £ The Associates £ Britney Spears £ Buzzcocks £ Bjork £ Carly Rae Jepson £ Chic £ Chuck Berry £ Charli XCX £ Daft Punk £ Donna Summer £ Eurythmics £ Fever Ray £ Fleetwood Mac £ The Fall £ FKA Twigs £ GFOTY £ Grace Jones £ Hot Chip £ J Lo £ Joy Division £ Kate Bush £ Kelela £ Le1f £ Lady Gaga £ Missy Elliot £ Modern Lovers £ MIA £ Mozart £ Nelly Furtado £ Peaches £ Pet Shop Boys £ Prodigy £ Robyn £ Robert Wyatt £ SOPHIE £ The Sound £ Simon and Garfunkel £ Swan Arcade £ TLC £ XTC £ Years and Years £ and increasing...

Our South London partners can join us at our first scheduled proceeding, CRASH at Sister Midnight Records on the 22nd
https://www.facebook.com/events/537329323346833/

Those who attend both CRASH and BURN can expect a generous bonus.
