Sensimilla Dub


In April 2016, the Brazilian record label ‘CRASSO Records’ released the album, ‘UNITY’. This album release was a first in Brazil, featuring 10 tracks divided by two bands; BAMBÚ STATION (Virgin Islands) and SENSIMILLA DUB (Brazil).

The well-known BAMBÚ STATION, founded in 1996 by Jalani Horton from St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, is already considered one of the greatest exponents of reggae worldwide.

For this release, 5 of the tracks that best represent the history of the band were selected, making it a compilation of their ‘greatest hits’. The tracks, ‘Gunsmoke’ and ‘One Day’ have been previously released on the album, ‘One Day’ from 2003 (Mt. Nebo Records); ‘Birds I View’ is one of the highlights of the album ‘Break The Soil’ from 2006 (Mt. Nebo Records) and the most recent singles, ‘Leaning On Afreeka’ and ‘All We Have’ had the public’s attention since 2012 through the album ‘Children Of Exodus’ (Griotlife Recordings).

The Brazilian veterans from SENSIMILLA DUB released 5 new tracks for its half of the split album. The track, ‘A Cor Do Sol’, featuring Eric de Oliveira from the band Mato Seco, followed by the tracks, ‘E Deixa O Vento’ and ‘Homens De Marte’ show the musical maturity acquired by the years. Once again showing the results of the mixture of reggae and different genres, the track ‘O Que A Ver Com Isso’ features artist such as Ras Menor (Rap Roots), Niko Souza and one of the Brazilian punk rock legends, Jão from Ratos de Porão. And closing the record, the track ‘Liberdade Controlada’.

All of the SENSIMILLA DUB’s tracks (with the exception of ‘Liberdade Controlada’, recorded at Spectrum Studios) have been produced, recorded and mixed in São Paulo at Wah Wah Studio by the reknown producer, Michel Kuaker (whose work portfolio includes artists Edgard Scandurra, CPM 22, Supla, Lobotomy and Ratos de Porão).
