Down By The River Side - Hard 2 Find Vol.2
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com, digital album on www.Colored-Inc.com) Colored-Inc., 2011-10-27

Down By The River Side's first album on the Colored-Inc. label (colored-inc.com) - launched by Djouls and Doctor L - is what some could call a 'jazz' album. Blending Jamaican harmonies with American Jazz or blaxploitation Funk, European folk and electronics with African percussions, Slam and Jazz with Hip Hop, Afrobeat with Gospel and Poetry, with some hefty doses of Reggae, Psychedelia and Soul in between, this is indeed a kind of a 'New Thing!', entirely produced by Doctor L and Grant Phabao with star guesting Carlton Livingston, The Lone Ranger and The Jays, Allonymous and Tony Allen.
