Up and coming Antiguan/Guyanese reggae star Promise No Promises (Walshy Fire, Ziggy Blacks, Mac Les) and producer/DJ Blend Mishkin who previously worked with Gappy Ranks, Carlton Livingston and Screetchy Dan got together to record an album where organic roots reggae is in central focus.
Music for the album was performed and recorded by the Roots Εvolution Band in Athens, Greece, then travelled to Antigua in the Caribbean for Promise to lay down the vocals. Blend Mishkin took all the recordings back to the studio and few months later delivered the final product.
We asked Promise about the process and what exactly the record means to him, to be fair, no other could describe the record better than the man himself: “In real life take you a bit inside myself, inside my thought, emotions and understanding of my day to day experiences. The debut track from the album “No Skylarking” is a basic understanding of my core set up… I believe in getting up and getting things done. Make the plays instead of sitting and waiting for the play to make me. Something I’ve learnt from an early age and is still putting to practice today. Reggae music has always been a major part of my creation, I find it a very comfortable way to express the positive me this way, so after listening to tracks like “Two Roads,” “No Way” and “I Want Better” folks will get better understand what I mean… “Rastafari way” is my way. Working with Blend Mishkin on this project has been an experience.. and although it has not been all smooth sailing, I truly believe we’ve both learnt a lot and have grown in some way. Thanks to everyone who have assisted us in any way weather musically or just advice. .. to all fans that have been patiently waiting on this project , guess what “WE’RE READY!!” Jah blessing be with you as you listen to “IN REAL LIFE””
