ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Earlier this year, when Nico sent Freddy's recordings to me, I was having a "dry spell" - I had written only one tune in over a year. Mixing this record in the studio, I really enjoyed how the musical form and harmony have to bend to the will of the melody, rather than the other way around. I feel this is what sets his music apart from a lot of music on the scene these days, and I find it personally inspiring. My dry spell is over, I'm writing music again. Thank you, Freddy!" - Victor Rice

Freddy Loco released "TABA" in his home country and we imported some copies and got it going into the digital distro stream a few years ago. I thought the band was good and had a unique style, but hadn't quite honed in on what exactly they wanted to achieve. When Freddy sent me some rough tracks from "Satellites" I knew he had spent the last 2 years perfecting his trade! The new tunes were super tight and a fresh take on the "traditional ska" element that many bands have been encompassing in this new era of ska music. But it wasn't cookie cutter, it had it's own bits and pieces that made it "Loco" and really showed off Freddy's roots and heritage. I've always thought European bands understood ska better than most American bands, especially in the traditional vein.
Then when Freddy said he was working with Victor Rice, I was completely on board with releasing it before I had even heard the rest of the album. I knew that Victor's mixing / producing style would compliment Freddy's sound perfectly. It was a match waiting to happen. The end result is an awesome cohesive musical dub reggae ting'ed ska journey from beginning to end. We are proud to put out this new record and have efforts in place to bring the band to the United States this fall for our Megalith Records Ska Splash showcase events in NYC, with some additional shows in the upper East Coast area. So be sure to be on the look out for that.

If you have enjoyed our Victor Rice, Babylove And The Van Dangos, Mr. T-Bone and Pannonia Allstar Ska Orchestra releases, you will LOVE this album!
