SKANKS ROOTS PROJECT
WORLD - Reggae
State of California
Skanks Roots Project is a reggae group formed from musicians around California. The group formed as a collaboration idea of Dj Skanks and musician, producer, E.N Young (member of Tribal Seeds). “SRP” is an all-star line up including Eddie Blunt (High Tide), J. Rips (KeepItLit), Chris Murray (CMajor), Dave Torr (Mad Traffic), Danny Dread (Roots Covenant), and Animo as well as many guest appearances. All members have met over the past few years at one point or another during shows and recording sessions. They formed as an official group at the end of 2012 at Imperial Sound Recording Studio in Southern California. Combining that San Diego roots vibe that Blunt, Young, Dread, and Torr bring to the table and lacing it with the NorCal flavor of Skanks, Rips, and Animo…it truly is a west coast bridge blessed by Jah!
The first single “Wild Flower” was a project idea that came to Dj Skanks and from then on they knew they had something special. They are following it with their first album, ‘Just the Tip,’ available February 26th. Their music has a cool swag that will get fans feeling that Cali reggae lovin’ vibe. Combining their instrumental abilities and musical compliance they keep an irie upbeat from song to song. ‘Just the Tip’ has guest appearances from Clear Conscience, Lexy Love, Eric Singer, Jah Wave, Sana, and Mis Lee Ding. With all the great musical talent behind it, the inspiration for the album comes from all the reggae-style music out there. It is a genre that is growing bigger and faster. Hence, the name of the album, ‘Just the Tip,’ meaning what you have heard so far is just the tip of the iceberg.
There is more to come of Skanks Roots Project within the next year. They are already back in the studio working on an EP which is expected to release late summer. More and more artists will be working with SRP, and these Californian musicians cannot wait to spread their sound and vibes as far as possible
