New album pre-order!

LONE ARK MEETS THE 18TH PARALLEL – SHOWCASE VOL. 1

Probably the most respected and sought-after producer of the European reggae scene of the last ten years, Spanish genius Roberto Sánchez (Willi Williams, Earl Zero, Alpheus, Keith & Tex, Milton Henry,…) takes place behind the microphone to deliver a new album as a singer under his pseudonym LONE ARK. Soberly titled Showcase Vol. 1, this album is a collaboration between Sánchez and Swiss band THE 18TH PARALLEL, whose playing is well known to reggae fans, since its musicians have recently played and produced some remarkable records, including I’ve Seen by Oku Onuora, Roots I Vision by Micah Shemaiah or Wonderland of Green by The Silvertones and Burro Banton. Faithful to the Jamaican roots reggae tradition, Showcase Vol. 1 offers six vocal tracks followed by their dub counterparts where all the creativity of the sound engineer and the musicians is freely expressed. On instrumentals at the same time heavy and irresistibly dancing, with a modern production but deeply rooted in the roots reggae sound, Lone Ark and The 18th Parallel push their listeners to critical reflection. A strong message + powerful music = a must-have album!

Available on September 3rd on vinyl LP, CD and on all digital platforms.

This project is particularly dear to us because Roberto Sánchez is part of Fruits Records family from day one as he was the mixing engineer of our first record, I Kong’s A Little Walk, and he mixed more than twenty of our releases so far. Furthemore it’s the first full length project under the name The 18th Parallel… and a lot more is coming soon!

Thank you all for your support through the years 🔥

PS: There’s still a very few limited copies of ‘GET YOU’ and ‘DEFEND’ singles left. If you want yours, you better order them quickly!
