De Strangers – Wake Up dropped tonight

Wake Up, the new single by the Milan-based reggae band,

available since last night on all digital platforms

and Tuff Wash Records’ Bandcamp


Last night dropped Wake Up, the new single by De Strangers, the young, Milan-based reggae band. Counting already several releases, De Strangers are back spreading their music after the drop, in July 2021, of Give Me Love ft. Elio Marrapodi. Wake Up is available right now on all the main digital platforms (Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music, etc.) and Tuff Wash Records’ Bandcamp, launching the new collaboration with the label.

Wake Up

«After Give Me Love we literally locked down in the studio to produce some new music. We had quite a few different riddims ready, that we had built in the previews months, and we simply chose those that felt fitter for an EP with the roots sounds that we are loving so much lately» De Strangers say. «Wake Up is a song that represents us fully right now. It has a roots sound and an authentic arrangement with more modern-sounding vocals. The lyrics are about us: through the image of an “awakening”, we wanted to tell about a spiritual journey that puts reggae music and its message at the very center of our day-today lives». And about Tuff Wash Records: «we heard about them last summer and went to a Blue Shepherd Sound System dance (their own sound system). We liked each other and, as we got reciprocally closer, we started this collaboration».


The single Wake Up is part of more unreleased songs that will drop during the spring of 2022 and will result, next May, in an EP with firm and authentic roots sounds, sought by De Strangers through vintage recordings and arrangements. All with the support and collaboration of Tuff Wash Records. The young, Verona-based independent label that focuses on the whole reggae environment is building with the band a rich relationship.


De Strangers was formed in Milan in 2014 by some then fifteen-or-so years old boys. In time, the band went through some changes, finding in reggae music their own path. After several releases, they are back with Wake Up, the new single with vintage, Jamaican-influenced sounds, recorded and mixed at the La Sabbia studio in Milan and mastered by Giovanni Versari. The line-up, other than the rhythmic section, counts with three horns and two singers. De Strangers mix modern with classic, exploring the vast reggae roots landscape. / +39 380 796 9070 / +39 3335330752
