More down-home, soulful and distinctly Kiwi sounding reggae from the Raglan roots collective – Cornerstone Roots. Free Yourself is the band’s second album from the band, following 2003’s fantastic Soul Revolution
The band has been anything but idle in the intervening years though; touring tirelessly here and across the Tasman (eight times to Australia in 2004 alone!) as well as Noumea and Japan. All this hard work is starting to pay off with the band garnering a solid fanbase in a growing amount of territories through touring and radio-play. They have shared the stage with Reggae royalty such as Burning Spear, Toots & The Maytals and legendary rhythm section Sly & Robbie. At their recent appearance at the Byron Bay Bluesfest they were joined onstage by none other than Spearhead’s Michael Franti!
Free Yourself sees Cornerstone Roots returning to a 4-piece – giving a well-suited, ‘no-frills’ stripped back sound to the album. Brian Ruawai delivers his conscious lyrics as well as some Hendrix-inspired bluesy guitar licks over a solid rhythmic bed laid down by Bassist Naomi Tuao, Drummer Turongo and Percussionist Aaron Bush. Several guests appear on the album too – including Reggae MC/vocalist Luciano and veteran Studio One DJ Ranking Joe. Free Yourself covers the gamut of Reggae styles – from the straight up Reggae of tracks like ‘Calling’ and ‘Jah’ to the more upbeat almost Ska feel of ‘Home’ and ‘Forward Movement’ and the instrumental track ‘Steppers’, which sees the group going into dubbed out mode – with big, deep bass and copious tape-echo all over the track. A solid second effort for this hardworking group and it will surely see the Cornerstone Roots sound spreading even further across the globe. Recommended.

Giving new meaning to the term “Highly Anticipated”, the fact that this album went Gold the day it was released speaks volumes about the significance of this record and band behind it. No introductions are required here, Fat Freddy’s have been wowing audiences here and abroad for the last seven years, up until now teasing us with the odd compilation appearance, a live recording here and there, and a handful of limited vinyl singles, which are quickly snapped up. But, after many delays, the wait is over – Fat Freddy’s debut studio long-player is finally here!
“Based on a True Story” reveals DJ Fitchie (Mu) as the phat controller, directing the traffic from behind his MPC2000 sampler and ever-present space-echo. The well-loved and iconic Wellington musician produced and recorded “Based on a True Story” in the basement of his house, The Drop HQ and just footsteps from Wellington’s Lyall Bay beach. If Fitchie is the brains of the operation, sublime vocalist Joe Dukie (Dallas Tamaira) is the heart and most definitely the soul. On “Ray Ray”, Dukie asks us “What’s the world with no soul?” The answer is that as long as he keeps singing there’ll be plenty to go around. Rounding out Fat Freddy’s sound is Jetlag Johnson (Tehimana Kerr) with his old school reggae guitar skank; analog keyboard scientist Dobie Blaze (Iain Gordon from Ebb) laying down the funk; and the booty shaking horn section made up of Fulla Flash (Warryn Maxwell from TrinityRoots) on saxophone, Hopepa (Joe Lindsay) on trombone &
Tony Chang (Toby Laing from Black Seeds) as resident trumpet maestro. As well as the core seven members of the group, other familiar players in the Aotearoa music scene drop in and throw their talents into the mix. TrinityRoots’ Riki Gooch and Rio Hemopo add some organic beats and bass while Hollie Smith, Ladi 6, and P Digsss (of Shapeshifter fame) lend their considerable vocal talents and Aaron Tokona (guitarist for Weta and pre ‘drop group Bongmaster) even pops in to jam with the bros. Patient fans may think it seems a little lean with only 10 tracks but they not likely to be disappointed for long, as they discover within the running time of over an an hour, new versions of live favourites like ‘This Room’, and ‘Ernie’ (a.k.a ‘Willow Tree’), alongside the recent sold out 12? ‘Flashback’ and six completely new tracks. A new, almost gospel version of “Hope”, the song that introduced Fat Freddy’s back in ‘98 (on Radio Actives 21st birthday CD), is a enduring standout and a fitting closer for this truly outstanding album. Highly Recommended. ‘Based On A True Story’ is the eagerly anticipated, long awaited & much debated debut studio album from one of New Zealand’s most loved & respected groups, Fat Freddy’s Drop. The legendary brotherhood of midnight marauders & purveyors of hi-tek soul, deliver an album which is steeped in dub, reggae & dancefloor electronica. Fat Freddy’s Drop’s music is a constantly evolving, organic experience, which is rhythm heavy with luscious coatings of jazz, soul & funk, rooted in Aotearoa & delivered with an Island attitude.
Live At The Matterhorn

02. Rain
03. No Parking
04. Bounce
Okay, before we go any further don’t get put off by the number of tracks on this CD, this is a full seventy minute recording! Fat Freddy’s Drop are in essence a collaboration of six Wellington based musicians, each an integral part of their own group, but in Fat Freddy’s Drop they explore the freedom and space given them by such a collaboration, delivering a live presence that swings between crafted songs and improvisation.
Based around the legendary DJ MU (Roots Foundation, Bongmaster) and his ever-present MPC 2000, Fat Freddy’s also features the distinctive talents of Dallas Tamaira (’Better Than Change’) on vocals, Iain Gordon (Bongmaster, EBB) on analogue keys, Warren Maxwell (TrinityRoots) on sax, Toby Laing (Black Seeds) on trumpet and Tehimana Kerr (old school Exponent) on guitar. ‘Live at the Matterhorn’ was captured on DAT and is perfect example of Fat Freddys Drop in full swing. Featuring favourites ‘Runnin’, ‘Rain’, ‘No Parking’ & ‘Bounce’, in their full expanded ‘live’ glory, this recording is essential for any of you who have been fortunate to catch these talented guys in person, and for the rest of you laggards, well Fat Freddy’s are currently one of this country’s hottest and most original live acts. After being out of print for what seems like an eternity, ‘Live at the Matterhorn’ is finally available again – re-released on the back of mega-selling success story ‘Based On A True Story’ – ‘Live at the Matterhorn’ has already reached Number One on the national “heatseekers” charts.

House of Shem’s strength is their phenomenal tightness and precision playing combined with the sweetness of their vocal harmonies. Like other popular local groups Kora and Katchafire,this is no doubt down to genetics. It’s most definitely a ‘whanau thing’ with Carl Perkins (Dad) steering the ship.
Carl has been writing and playing reggae music for more than thirty years and as a member of such legendary groups as Herbs, Mana and The Twelve Tribes of Israel Band amongst others, his credentials are impeccable. He is joined in this band by two of his sons, Te Omeka and Isaiah who not only both provide vocals and keyboards, but also share the song-writing duties. It is this clever distribution of labour that gives this band its variety of flavours and the family’s tight musical bond that renders an overall cohesion. Perkins senior’s compositions are statesman-like and rooted in the familiar tradition of the greats like Marley, Tosh and Spear. Te Omeka provides a slightly more modern militant and ‘dread’ style whilst Isaiah brings the sweetness and youth. Each of the three sing lead vocals in the show with the other two harmonizing. Backing this vital vocal trio is one of the most formidable rhythm sections in the South Pacific – Kaya Webster, who has been playing a solid ‘one drop’ since primary school days and Francis Harawira, bassist who both hail from other well-known local reggae familys. Earlier recorded works like ‘Dreams’ and ‘What About The Children’ which were highlights of the best-selling ‘Conscious Roots’ compilations are present and there’s no doubting that the title track, ‘Keep Rising’ is a sure-fire hit, but it is Isaiah Perkins’ beautiful ‘Jah Bless’ that steals the show for me. Spiritual lyrics, state of the art production techniques and an understated but heavenly vocal style give this track everything that exemplifies excellence in modern roots music. These guys display the best of both worlds – a traditional NZ roots reggae vibe combined with an innate knowledge of the latest Jamaican sounds. The wisdom that comes with age and experience alongside a contemporary and youthful zeal. For those that like local reggae, this album is a must. It is a refreshingly strong debut and indicates that only great things are in store for this band’s future.
Artist info: Katchafire were formed in 1997 by Grenville Bell who originally managed the band that both his sons, Logan and Jordan, performed in. Brought up on a lifetime of reggae, soul, R’n’B and jazz, both boys became steeped in the sounds of the classic late 70s-early 80s era of radio-friendly reggae music, best exemplified by Bob Marley. Today we can best hear those influences coming through in Logan’s extraordinary voice and songwriting.

Reggae has always had a special place in the heart of New Zealand music fans, with this country being amongst the highest consumers of reggae, and particularly Bob Marley (per capita New Zealanders have bought more Bob Marley albums than anywhere else in the world). Bands such as Herbs, Dread Beat & Blood and Aotearoa led the way during the eighties and influenced numerous current working bands (TrinityRoots, Black Seeds, Cornerstone Roots, etc). The latest of these to gain attention and release a debut album is Katchafire. Originally formed over five years ago (the current line-up settled a couple of years ago), this eight-piece band (all of whom are of Maori descent) produce reggae of the more traditional pop-meets-soul variety as witnessed by their recent win at the NZ Music Awards for the single “Giddup”. If you’ve caught them live (and many have), or via their single (either on the radio or video), and like the “cut of their jib”, you won’t be disappointed with this soulful slice of homegrown reggae. Debut album from 8-piece Hamilton reggae band, Katchafire – winners of the 2003 Tui Award for Highest Selling Single. New Zealands’
hardest working reggae band KATCHAFIRE are re-releasing their first album, REVIVAL on May 16 to celebrate the 2nd anniversary of the album’s original release. KATCHAFIRE continue touring playing songs from this and their current platinum release SLOW BURNING. After barely 2 years in the market, REVIVAL is well past double platinum status, yielded 5 radio hits and 1 TUI AWARD WINNER (Giddyup), and it is still in the top 15 sellers of IMNZ independent label album chart.

Mining the great New Zealand love and tradition of reggae (reflected over the years by bands such as the Herbs, Aotearoa, Dread Beat & Blood, Cornerstone Roots, etc), roots reggae outfit Katchafire hit paydirt with their Bob Marley influenced debut ‘Revival’, making the band a household name in New Zealand via a slew of videos and radio singles, plus considerable hard work and extensive touring. The new album ‘Slow-Burning’ finds this eight-piece outfit continuing to mine their reggae influences, although with considerable new-found confidence and originality. The Marley influences are obviously still there (I mean how could a reggae band not be influenced by the great man?) but are now less pronounced as the band, and particularly principle songwriters Logan Bell, Jordan Bell and Jamey Ferguson, find their own songwriting footing (all songs on this album are written by the band). The blend of “pop” and reggae is now almost seamless, while the use of horns and harmonica on tracks such as “Roots Music”, “I And I”, “Frisk Me Down” and “Call Right Up” add real colour and swing to proceedings, resulting in an album that is overall more cohesive and infinitely tighter sonically. With our impending summer (he says hopefully looking out his rain splattered window) this skanking pop delight should find favour with many in New Zealand, and it is a genuine pleasure to announce that Katchafire have now delivered an album to match their considerable “live” reputation. Recommended. Katchafire were, and remain, unique in New Zealand music. They are a viable, touring eight-piece band which can work the length of the country without exhausting the place. They can return to a venue they played just a few months before and pack it out all over again. That is rare for any band, regardless of what style of music it plays.

With their third and slickest album to date, Katchafire take their R&B-infected Reggae to new heights. Coming a long way since forming as a Bob Marley (there name comes from the Wailers ‘Catch A Fire’ album) covers band in Waikato back in 1997, the group has gone on to become one of this countries leading Roots/Reggae lights on the international stage. They are constantly touring and fostering an impressive fanbase around the globe, especially in Australia and more surprisingly Hawaii – this all-Maori group finding a particular affinity with the people of those Islands. ‘Say What You’re Thinking’ is a big step musically for Katchafire, with all members of the group contributing to the songwriting which had previously been handled primarily by Guitarist/Vocalist Logan Bell and Saxophonist Jamey Fergusson. Vocally, this is an extremely strong album. The band describe themselves as a family (and with Bell and his brother Jordan and Father Grenville all members, that is almost literally the case) and with the super-tight doo-wop harmonies that open the album with the title track, musically this is also very true. These guys are so attuned to each other musically, it’s almost supernatural – as anyone who has seen their hypnotic live show will attest.
This album leaves you with a warm, positive glow and a feeling that you’re all the better for the experience. Refreshing in these days of unit-shifting pop commodities. That’s not to say this album won’t sell either – based on the sales of their debut ‘Revival’ and it’s follow up ‘Slowburning’, we predict ‘Say What You’re Thinking’ is going to be huge – taking Katchafire to the furthest corners of the globe. As Logan Bell says: “The language barrier’s there but somehow the music overrides that and you wouldn’t notice the difference” and that sums up this album perfectly.The third album from New Zealand’s best loved reggae/ roots band, following on from platinum selling albums Revival and Slow Burning. Includes first single and title track, Say What You’re Thinking.

Now after four years, the wait is finally over – an album of all new Salmonella Dub material is here! The ‘Dub are pioneers of the NZ’s healthy Live Roots/Dub scene, forming in Christchurch in 1992. ‘Heal Me’ is their sixth album and from opening track ‘Watching It Rain’ it’s clear why these guys are still considered the leaders of pack, not only holding their own against some of these younger groups but showing the whipper-snappers a thing or two in the process!
‘Heal Me’ is the band’s sixth album and is by far their most vocally lush to date. In fact it would be fair to call this their fully-fledged vocal album without lacking any of the rich texturing or Dub atmospherics of their earlier, more instrumental work. Fair not, those Salmonella Dub hallmarks we all know and love are still in full effect; big wide open spaces where horns and guitars dart back and forth and of course great big bottom-end!

11. On The Sun
On the back of plenty of hard gigging and 2001’s debut ‘Keep On Pushing’, The Black Seeds have set themselves up for big things with the release of ‘On The Sun’. Where the mega-successful ‘Keep On Pushing’ (one of Smokecds most popular sellers) established the band as a clever and talented reggae/dub influenced pop outfit, ‘On The Sun’ shows the band’s undoubted progression into one of New Zealand’s premiere live acts (along with Fat Freddy’s Drop and TrinityRoots of course). The playing is infinitely tighter, the songwriting continues to mature and evolve nicely, while the music itself has moved away from the obvious reggae influences to now include a distinctive and original funk element which allows the band to really explore and develop the sounds that the various members of this collective bring to the party. Production is handled by in house maestro Lee Prebble, with mastering done in Sydney, resulting in an album which sounds magnificent on a big fat system. Sounding a little like a sonic hybrid of Salmonella Dub and past NZ outfits such as the Holiday Makers and Netherworld Dancing Toys, ‘On The Sun’ is a thrilling, stylish and original slice of contemporary New Zealand pop music that could happily sit in any home. Congatulations must go to The Black Seeds for this excellent album. Heartily Recommended.

The Black Seeds return with their third studio album and high expectations from their ever-growing fan-base. And those fans won’t be disappointed as Into the Dojo is an album that should see them cementing their place as one of New Zealand’s favourite bands. On the Sun and similar critical and commercial success for lead singer Barnaby Weir’s Fly My Pretties project – Sensibly enough, the band haven’t messed with their seemingly simple and successful formula. So expect infectious reggae beats, smooth melodies and singalong lyrics, all wrapped up in a warm blanket of pop, rock and dub sensibilities. Lee Prebble returns as the band’s producer, and has somehow managed to find even more dynamic range for this release – never before has the band sounded so sumptuous and rich as they have here. The aptly titled ‘Heavy Mono E’, for example, just about falls out of the speakers so fat and full is the bottom-end. Highlights include the upbeat party tracks like ‘Sometimes Enough’ and ‘Good People (Get Together)’ and lazy summer tunes ‘Way the World’ and ‘Love for Property’, although the album as a whole is a pleasure to listen to from start to finish. A perfect party album, or maybe something to slip on when having a few beers around the barbeque. Recommended.
Following on from the double-platinum success of ‘On The Sun’ The Black Seeds are very please to announce their highly anticipated third studio album. The 13-track album was written and recorded over the past 12 months with Lee Prebble at The Surgery in Wellington. This is the first Black Seeds album to be recorded with the new rhythm section. The first single ‘Sometimes Enough’ is playing on high-rotate on Bnet stations nationwide and will be serviced to mainstream radio in the first week of July.

The Conscious Roots series goes from strength to strength with the release of this excellent third installment, perfectly timed to greet the coming of the southern summer. And it’ll no doubt be on high-rotate at many a BBQ over the summer months, with its irresistible mix of reggae and dub beats. Live reggae and roots favourites Katchafire, Cornerstone Roots and Kora all provide tunes that double up as excellent sunny day tunes as well as musical social statements; Opensouls provide a touch of the funk with their track ‘Falling In’ (featuring the inimitable vocals of Ladi6); and Hollie Smith cements her status as one of the most soulful New Zealand songstresses on the scene by closing the album with a beautiful vocal and acoustic guitar performance of her song ‘Prayer’. The breadth and quality of the New Zealand roots scene is amply demonstrated on this album: from established artists like The Black Seeds and Verse Two, to brilliant new up-and-comers The Kingites and Three Houses Down, it’s easy to see why this musical form is so cherished in this country. As essential as a good sunscreen for the coming summer months – Highly Recommended.
