Rasta Community III: Homeland Riddim
The reggae music of the future goes well in our area
While the video of Kill In Prison * goes crazy on the net, after appearing on Italian national television news (TG1) in the music book “Notes”, the Bantustan Corporation by Alessandro Falcone and Gianluca Ferrara publishes the third volume of the compilation “Rasta Community III: Homeland Riddim”, available from 27th July next on www.ibambinidiantonio.it.
The Corporation has grown up and now walks with its legs, the evolution is continuous and has begun with the quality work done on vol. 2 by the famous Italian label “ONE LOVE” by Madaski, who made also an optimization work on the disc: for this work in particular, even the final mastering was done by the duo, Ferrara, in addition to composition, has dedicated himself to the mix, while Falcone focused on artistic and executive production.
“Homeland Riddim – Rasta Community vol. 3″ closes the trilogy with an unusual concept album based on a comparison between the history of apartheid and what is happening today in North Africa, with the interference of the white bureaucracy in the African world that symbolizes a line of continuity between past and present.
The same argument is lyrically examinated by 8 different personality (6 new compared to vol. 2), on a carpet of beats this time recorded in analogic to try to resemble as much as possible to the music played with real instruments. Raphael (Eazy Skanker), Giallo Man, Ras Tewelde, RootsmanI (Train To Roots), Kubla (Boom Boom Vibration), Davide Di Lecce, Luke Dread & Don Tino (Maga Dog), they aim to stitch upon themselves the same theme and the same beat for everybody.
The arrangements are very attentive to detail, the sound is focused on the groove to exalt the soul of the songs and undermine the boundaries between genres, these are the secrets of a work that represents a taste of what you will listen on “Tecomates”, the first true disk of Falcone & Ferrara (also this coming soon) and whose “Kill In Prison” is an anticipation!
The revenues of the online sale (www.ibambinidiantonio.it) will be devolved to Charity Association “I bambini di Antonio” (The children of Antonio) in Rodi Garganico (Foggia – Italy) that operates in Uganda – district of Nakaseke in Kapeeka (Africa).
