This talented musician has been for the last decade the driving force of the Spanish reggae scene, having recorded 6 albums as a crucial member of the top spanish Reggae bands Recorded at his A-Lone Muzik Studio, "Countryside (Sounds from Nazarin Street)" is a non-compromise Roots album, in a classic 70s style.
Every track is an original, written and sung by Roberto Sanchez, who also recorded, arranged, mixed and produced them. He also plays bass, guitar and keyboards, while his long-time musical comrades take care of the rest of the instruments. Vocally, Lone Ark brings back memories of the unique harmonising of the classic Jamaican vocal trios such as The Heptones, The Paragons, The Gladiators, Wailing Souls and Cultural Roots. Also included is a vocal collaboration by UK based deejay Afrikan Simba, on the track 'Artificial life'. Lone Ark reflects Roberto's vision of the classic reggae sound: analogue, raw and organic. Combining the influences of Studio 1, Black Ark and the UK roots sound of which this crew of musicians have been devout disciples for many years. Brand new Roots music with a strong old-time feel. "Real" instruments instead of sequencers, raw analogue rhythms where the bass and drums dominates. Dubs from the old school like in the days of Lee Perry or Dennis Bovell
