RE-INVENTING THE LOVERS ROCK REGGAE SCENE
Having established themselves across the Midlands as the next big thing in the Reggae scene, Rice n Peas have been working on the release of two of their live performed songs at popular demand.
Taking an original Barbara Acklin notorious track from 1968, Rice n Peas have re-produced what is a modern, fresh, uplifting take on the record, with audiences being reminded about what was great about the Lovers Rock scene back in the 70s and 80s.
The second track, a smooth, romantic, R&B influenced reggae sound, is represented in Love come down, well-known for its original R&B/Soul/Pop recording in 1982, by Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King.
Taken into account the short amount of time that the Lovers Rock scene was around, and the controversial opinions this genre of reggae music escalated, Rice n Peas have set out on a mission to re-create the authentic sound they have become well-known for, and bring back some love to the genre.
