Kerbside Collection’s third album “Smoke Signals” released in late 2018 is a real winner. Continuing in a down home, instrumental approach, but this time crafting newer ideas and flavours into their spectrum of warm, analogue, dusty rare grooves from much more Fender Rhodes electric jazz elements, to New Orleans sprinklings alongside their 60’s inspired West Coast style.
'Cajun Jollof' (a spicy chicken & rice Creole dish) is one of the standout funky reggae tracks from the album, and has already received a limited edition 7inch vinyl single release on St. Petersburg/Russian funky 45s crew Spasibo Records!
On this special 7" Légère Recordings single the sunny, fun-lovin' tune gets 2 x sizzling interpretation REMIXES! First up French dub & reggae expert Grant Phabao (Paris DJs) takes it on a surefire, uptempo, 'knees-up', Caribbean ska trip; while on the B side TwoDee keeps the Jamaican vibes cooking with his sizzling reggae-dub 're-cook' version, conjuring up some vintage King-Tubby x early Bouzou Bajou/Fat Freddy’s Drop, South Pacific sounds.
