Summer Fridays and reggae go together like right and left titties.
Names You Can Trust and Bastard Jazz team up to present the Beverley Road All Stars, a new studio project under the guidance of producers DJ DRM and E’s E. Comprised of a select squad of talented studio musicians in Brooklyn, the Beverley Road All Stars mark their debut with 2 new interpretations of classic Studio 1 riddims.
Not too shabby. “I’m still in love” generally maintains the outline of the Alton Ellis original but punches up the drums for more kick and adds some spacey atmospherics. “Danger in your eyes” goes even deeper down the space cadet rabbit hole with abounding synth swirls and druggy horns, which work well against the backdrop of a faster-than-you-would-expect drum pattern.
