KETCH A FIRE – VARIOUS ARTISTS

Reality Shock presents “Ketch A Fire” – a retro, digital style various artist compilation album featuring a host of top artists including King Kong, Tippa Irie, Daddy Freddy, General Levy, Solo Banton, Blackout JA, Speng Bond & Jah Screechy.
Producer Kris Kemist pays homage to a chapter in reggae music history that emerged out of Jamaica during the 80’s, pioneered by the likes of Jammys, Steelie & Cleevie. Gussie Clarke, Bobby Digital & Fattis Burell. The past decade has seen a revival of digital reggae with labels springing up across the globe dedicated to keeping the genre alive. In this tradition, armed with the classic tools of the trade; a Casio keyboard, Dx100 synth & Oberheim DMX drum machine, Kris Kemist took on the project which was to become “Ketch A Fire”. Reality Shock has long been known as a hub for many of the UK’s leading reggae artists & veterans, so naturally the track list is packed with well known names. The first single from the album, Solo Banton’s Super Lyrics was released earlier this year on 12” vinyl accompanied by an animated music video.
