Gloria Estefan, Reggae Roast, Marvin Gaye, Demon Fuzz, Herbie Hancock, and Da 5 Bloods
Music has been so healing in my life, so the fact that my music could be that for someone else is the best gift of my whole career. People have told me that they got married to my music, divorced to my music, and played my music while they were having their baby. - Gloria Estefan
Turn Up The Heat by Reggae Roast is a milestone in the development of modern Reggae music, while Gloria Estefan's music shift is visible on her emotional album Into the Light. The first posthumously released Marvin Gay studio album Dream of a Lifetime includes the top five R&B single, "Sanctified Lady". Besides we have the wonderful new At The Movies soundtrack Da 5 Bloods (composed by Terence Blanchard) ready for you to pick-up at your local store. Finally, we have new coloured vinyl editions of the Oscar-winning soundtrack Round Midnight (by Herbie Hancock) and Demon Fuzz' Afro-rock album Afreaka!
Demon Fuzz was an Afro-rock group of which its members had all immigrated to Britain from Commonwealth countries. Released in 1970 the band's only album, the extraordinary Afreaka!, demonstrates their excellence in playing psychedelic soul, dub-heavy funk, progressive rock, Afro-jazz, and black acid rock.
After the near-tragic accident for Gloria Estefan during the "Get on Your Feet Tour" (Gloria suffered broken vertebrae) she portrayed her emotion on Into the Light, hence the album's title. This shift affected not only her image but also her audience as a result, and that shift is even more apparent on Into the Light.
Dream of a Lifetime is the first posthumously released studio album by Marvin Gaye, including the top five R&B single, "Sanctified Lady". In the summer of 1984, Harvey Fuqua and Gordon Banks worked on finishing or "modernizing" several of Gaye's songs leftover from both Columbia and Motown recording sessions.
The musical score for Da 5 Bloods was written by multiple Grammy Award winner Terence Blanchard. Blanchard opted for a 90-piece orchestra in the room in order to accentuate the emotion.
Oscar-winning Soundtrack (Best Original Score) produced by Herbie Hancock. Ron Carter, Bobby McFerrin, Tony Williams, Wayne Shorter, Freddie Hubbard, Chet Baker; this is just a sample of the roll-call that rivals Billie Holiday's famous Fine And Mellow session for CBS.
With over a decade of experience running the UK's most important Soundsystem events and performing alongside some of the biggest Reggae artists in the world, Reggae Roast have forged our own unique sound. Combining the classic nostalgia of old school reggae classics with a modern digi-dancehall twist, Turn Up The Heat is a milestone in the development of modern Reggae music.
