    Interesting that you used the vocal you used, I was (very pleasantly) listening at work and the male voice came through...and made me sit up, eyebrows raised. :-) Your work, of course, is of great quality and this was easy listening. This will be played over and over while relaxing in the is thing called life. Always a pleasure visiting your place Dave. Pretty soon you're gonna have to start making muzic again, just so I don't run out of reasons to stop by. :-)

    Love this piece. Lot of great music and tasty guitar packed in to this track. The sax jumped out at me with a happy yelp of surprise. I like the subterranean vocals going on. And the fade to rain at the end is way cool. Excellent work.

    Yo.

    This is some good shit.

    0:21 and that first note is cool. Nice guitar playing and the reggae is strong and rather retro. Drums right back in the mix. I'd prefer them more forward, to bring the groove out, but I understand that choice.

    1:18-1:25 there may be a bit of clash between the bass and guitar as they're both rather active. It's good bass variety, all the same.

    1:33 saxy sound that's rather authentic even though I suspect it's not a real one.

    1:58 good strange, emphatic noise.

    2:08 nice, subtle guitar.

    I still want the drums to be more prominent but they're not and that's your choice.

    3:25 good vocal screamy stuff a little reminiscent of Floyd's The Great Gig In The Sky.

    I'm not that keen on the windy, rainy ending but it's not bad. I'm not keen on fadeouts in general and prefer something more definitive to round things off.

    This is some very authentic retro reggae that no one would know was made by one guy playing everything at a computer. So congrats on capturing that classic reggae essence and adding some additional, worldly "ethnic" flavour.

    Hey Static thanks for dropping by man (mon)...I did place the drums back in the mix a little by design, more often than not the drum program (EZyDrummer) does a reasonable job but on this occasion it didn't quite have the exact spot on feel I was looking for even after I'd manipulated the rim shots etc. That's a Ciaramella an Italian member of the Oboe family you can hear, I'm always looking for different instruments to try....Your totally correct on the fade outs, I don't always use them but it is pure laziness when you come right down to it.."oh the song needs to end lets just fade it", jeez I've done that so often guilty as charged, you've put me on notice and I'll endeavour to do proper endings in the future....thanks again for your insightful review mate!..cheers Dave :)

    Very thankful for this tune, since I hear it from the point of view of one of those specks of "dust." It's uplifting in all of the right ways, and gets me past all the BS quickly. The song made me wish I had been enjoying a glass pipe instead of my tobacco pipe, I'll just have to download it for later! Like someone mentioned, the bass sounded well intonated! Been fashioning a rosewood bridge for a guitar in the last couple of days, so I guess my mind is just on that sort of thing. This very much has a vintage reggae feel to me, and that is always a welcome surprise (one we don't get very often lately). Your performances were awesome! The vocal thing being a VST really surprised me, and considering it had pitch work done, it sounded quite good! Very fun to hear this one, and I will Fave and DL. Thanks for sharing it!

    Reply by Planetjazzbass

    Hey Pat...glad you liked the tune mate, I took various parts of the vocal samples mainly the ending phrases and combined them with a little pitch correcting, man I wish I could sing it would make things way better (trouble is the only times I ever sung was when I was drunk and I gave up drinking ages ago, I need to get over my hangups and try it sober maybe! lol), good to hear your making instruments mate as you know it's so very satisfying getting hands on with your music in a literal sense as artistically...all the best mate cheers Dave :)

    Really dig this one Dave. Brings back some memories of hanging with a few old band members and checking out different guitar music. I was never much into Reggae but one of the guys was always trying to get us to do some and was always playing us tunes from Marley, Dennis Brown, Mikey Dread and others. This undoubtedly has a fair amount of Jazz flavoring which I really enjoyed. Such a pleasant groove all the way through. Great listen , great track.

    shit this is my first comment on a reggae song. Thankfully its a dope piece of music so i dont mind lending a few words to the cause. Very unique styling with the guitar. Feels very organic and has obviously been put together with much emotion and artistry. Feels like it could benefit from a lil bit of repetition as strange as that might sound. I got a lil bit lost in the various switch ups and vocal sections. But very enjoyable and very different. strong work

    Reply by Planetjazzbass

    Hey Flonut, thanks for the listen man very much appreciated!... I guess this track being essentially an instrumental in my eyes enabled me to act chromatically within it's structure something I quite often do, however I get what your saying and if it had of been constructed with a dedicated vocal presence I definitely would have steered the bias in that direction and not taken so free range approach...thanks again mate! cheers Dave :)

    Yeah this is great. Really like this old style reggae mixed with the ethno and jazzy things. The sound is really well and the same can be said to the play skill.
    This was a pleasure to listen to. I bet that this one is something where a talented singer could do some nice vocals on.

    A really good reggae song.

    stay tuned

    Hey Ed thanks buddy!...went along to a Marley concert only because a friend of my sister's offered me free tickets..they were second row dead centre, a totally awesome experience for me...while I had always liked calypso and early Jamaican styles I'd never been exposed to full blown live reggae before, became an instant convert (along with most of western youth at that time) and still am, though Dubstep doesn't appeal to me..I wonder why. haha....thanks for your kind review mate much appreciated! cheers Dave :)

    Whoa! Good Lord man! Dave, you did Kingston Jamaica very proud with this one. Wow, I never thought I would ever hear a quaility track like this on this site. It say commercially quality all over it. The bass guitar is tuned so sweetly. You really set the mood and atmosphere for a really authentic sounding Jamaican experience so much so that I caught myself literally daydreaming about being on the beaches of Kingston. I actually had to play again a second time to appreciate it. This song is very impressive, it reminded me of the Roots Reggae style I remembered as kid. It wasn't all just funk with me Dave in my childhood home, it was Jimmy Cliff, Lee "Scratch" Perry, Steel Pulse, Toots and the Maytals, Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Yellowman, Barrington Levy and I can go on and on. Just know you have captured that spirit. I was blindsided by this one because I did not expect a song at this level or quality that triggered found memories that were long forgotten. Excellent work Dave, I really love this song!!

    Hey Joe thanks man!..I'm sure if we laid all our records side by side there'd be heaps of the same artists represented in both. There's also something inherently present in us older guys influences, we actually grew up listening to good music! haha. I guess every generation says that but nobody totally reinvents the wheel and in the end it comes down to our persistent memory's and what effected us the most in our formative years..judging by what passes for a lot of modern music I'd say the creators were lab rats and not naturally conceived! lol....seriously though Joe I very much appreciate your kind words because I know your a serious musician with deep understandings....all the best Dave :)

    I know now why you changed your avatar, you have dreadlocks and they haven't quite grown out yet!! Well done Dave, has the feel of some authentic roots reggae. Mix is tight, as usual and I did like the creative intro. Mixed down to an album? ;)

    The corporate machine can't stop musicians from writing about their unscrupulous practices and not giving the worker a fair shake. I always liked the Clash for writing songs like Clampdown as it is about the corporations and their control over workers. It seems like it keeps getting worse and now in my country we have the same type of businessman as president elect. Say goodbye to more of my rights and benefits as a citizen. Bastards!! Now I'm wound up,lol.

    Always a pleasure, take care!

    Sweet. Just nicely tasteful reggae style from the late sixties early seventies sound. I used to go to a reggae night back in the day back in the states and watch this band do covers. There version of ¨Hey Joe¨ kicked ass, and the lead singer could also play a soprano and an alto sax at the same time. quite a feat. What I love about this is the bass work is awesome. The first part of the phrase is traditional reggae and you end the second part of the phrase with scalar jazz, brilliant composition. I did not realize you released a tune with the word Dread in it as I put out an ambient tune called Dread, But ever since Halloween we have been on a mental simpatico that is a bit spooky. My song was about the dread people might be feeling after the US election. Your dread song is much more uplifting and musically equates some hope. Congrats on another great piece of work Dave.

    Hey Steve thanks mate!..same track names different inflections, haha when I hear the word dread it's always pronounced with a Rastafarian lilt, no wot I'm talkin about mun (accompanied by sound of big spliff getting lit up in background)....it's kind of sad that Dubstep has replaced what used to be occupied by reggae but that's life, a cousin of mine recently spent two years working in the Seychelles and sent me heaps and heaps of their local music which is very reggae based but way more pop oriented, sort of reggae without the ganja! lol...ah me no partake of de erb dees dayz mun doze rastas wud tink I'ma crazy mon mun!...cheers mate Dave :)

    Great example of Less Is More. As a constant violator, I need to learn from this. Your instrumentation is always pretty exposed and what it should be,... recorded properly. These tones are not "fix it in the mix" tones. Sure, some eq and other touches, but this hasn't been manhandled and bastardized by radical eq. Sounds very natural, organic. Something I've yet to achieve. Good stuff, indeed.

    Take care.

Description : Music composed by Alex Richard and Laurent Wirz. With: Hanspeter Dubach Lead and rhythm guitars, Alex Richard Bass and rhythm guitars, Claude Barbotte Hammond organ, Joël Perrin Saxophone and me at the drums. The two grooves I used for this one are to find under Loops and Sample, member laurentwirz, reggae. Also an excellent loop from member ebae. I have to say that I asked Michael Mayo before publishing it but I received no answer yet. It was pretty difficult with his acapella because it's a pretty short loop with not a lot of words (for an almost 5 minutes track)! You can ear also some background vocals from Patricia Edwards and I hope it's okay for her.
