MAVADO – LIFE BLANKET (THE GERMAICANS REMIX)

The last Germaica release of the decade is as well the first official Mavado remix of a German producer to date. Furthering their remix catalogue The Germaicans studio band gave Mavado’s single “Life Blanket” a Reggae remix treatment, making the Gully Gad flow over a 90s inspired beat incorporating even mixes.

The result is Vado seeminlessly blending into the Reggae world. Beautiful keyboard lines compliment the hard working riddim section and saxophoniste Johanna Järemo’s licks put the icing on the cake leaving one with the wish for an entire Mavado Reggae album!

WE ARE CELEBRATING 20 YEARS GERMAICA – MESSER BANZANI ANTHOLOGY VOL. 1-6

Exactly 20 years ago on 09/09/1999 GERMAICA was founded. We like to take the opportunity to thank everybody involved, all colleagues, artistes and producers who contributed, all people who supported the label and all sounds, DJs and Selectors who played and pushed our releases.

To celebrate label style we decided to re-release the complete back catalogue of MESSER BANZANI – the pioneering Ska & Reggae band from East Germany and predecessor of GERMAICA. It was this band where cousins and then vocalists PIONEAR & TOM started producing riddims and evolved the idea of building a platform for fellow artistes like GENTLEMAN to make their first steps and to support SEEED soon after. In case u never know it was MESSER BANZANI – renamed THE FAR EAST BAND – serving as backing band for the “Journey to Jah” years of the Cologne SingJay.

The MESSER BANZANI ANTHOLOGY consists of all 5 studio albums of the band plus a sixth volume with remixes, edits and bonus tracks. Enjoy this authentic piece of German Reggae history for the first time available in digital format for streaming and download!
