RESONATORS / RIGHT TIME

Links To Stream/Buy

Brought together from Brighton’s diverse and thriving arts scene and a love of the hypnotic, spontaneous and psychedelic sounds of dub, Resonators is a band blurring genre boundaries and carving their own niche within the ever- evolving sounds of dub-reggae.

Mutual Understanding

2016 saw them release their third album, Imaginary People, described by rootsreggaereview.com as “nine tracks of beautifully crafted, exquisite roots reggae”. Right Time – the fourth single to be drawn from that album, sees Kassia Zermon, one of the band’s two uniquely talented front-women, take on lead vocal duties. The single is a timely and much needed celebration of coming together as one people and one community with no leaders, just mutual understanding and uncensored joy! In that way it represents the band themselves and their need to create positive change through music.

As well as the original version, this package includes an essential dub version from the band’s ninth member, and in-house engineer, Darren “Jamtone” Mathers, and both vocal and dub mixes from super hot producer and multi-instrumentalist Ash Walker. Fans of this young man include Gilles Peterson, Don Letts and Lefto, and here he takes Right Time into futuristic King Tubby territories! Look out for an extremely limited white label 7″ release of Ash’s mixes, due out on September 1st.
