Just two years on the road and this spanish band has suddenly become one of the big names in classic jamaican music in Spain and one of the most ofently performers all around the country.
The first band’s year was a great starting earning the first prize on the Cantabiran Music Contest. They invested the money they earned winning the trophy in recording in the best reggae studio in Spain. Just a few months later they released their first single, a 45rpm titled “Cantabria’s Finest” which is nowadays (6 months later) out of press.
Smooth Beans have spent their second year in activity on the road, taking their personal sound to each and every corner in the country, playing at the most well known clubs and the most important festivals. One of the highlights in their short carrer was to be chosen for closing the Ska Club stage at the Rototom Sunsplash Festival 2010, the most important jamaican music festival in Euroea with over 150.000 people in the last edition, August 2010.
This new long play is now being celebrated by their fans, since the single was a good starting, the audience has been demanding some more tunes to feed their souls. At Low Fyah, the brand new album, has 10 own and original compositions, sailing from romantic Rocksteady to uptempo Bluebeat and of course adding some floorshaker Reggae stompers.
Produced, once again, by Roberto Sánchez at A-Lone Muzik Studio in Santander, “At Low Fyah!” (both released on CD and LP), is an album which looks to be even more successful that their previous release and has a lot to say in the jamaican music and pop scenes, due to a simple reason, they have been simmering the best ingredients: an artisan producer with his own sound with a band which pampers every move with passion and dedication.
