Starboj, Lee “Scratch” Perry – For Real (Spotify)

“Featuring a number of well-known Jamaican musicians ‘For Real’ has a distinct traditional Reggae flavour, mixed with a feel good rock’n’roll feel. The variety of vocals and brass section lends an authenticity to the music that give the listener the impression that they are basking in the sunshine, sipping a rum punch or two. ”

A blend of finest rock-steady-rhythms, Jamaican tones and rock’n roll are the result of several trips to Jamaica by Bert Katzianer aka Starboj. The musician from Austria recorded several studio sessions with well-known Jamaican musicians, like Lee Scratch Perry, Sly & Robbie, Eek-A-Mouse and U-Roy. Afterwards the songs were elaborately recorded and produced in Graz at the studio zollfreizone.
