ROGER RIVAS: 10 Plagues (Vinyl 7″) + Free download

Rating: ★★★★★ Keyboardist Roger Rivas goes full Jackie Mittoo on his latest 45 10 Plagues on a label long known for being a guardian of the retro reggae sound – Happy People Records. The track effortlessly conjures the ‘sound of ’69’ with its upbeat organ groove and is arguably the best solo effort yet from the man also known for his work as keyboardist and founder member of L.A. ‘dirty reggae’ crew The Aggrolites and as keyboardist for funky reggae supergroup Nite Owls – not to mention his previous solo recordings and production work. Flip it over and it’s all about Plagues Of Dub. Yes, that will be the dub version. Long lead time on this? Certainly is but such is the current state of the planet and the queues at pressing plants. Don’t put your feet up though, his last four 45s on Happy People have shot out of the doors. While you wait for your wax – why not cop the free download of the track?
