Love this new riddim DJ SKITZ
The Sea aka Corin Penningtons Red String Riddim EP reveals the London producers flair for capturing and recreating a unique reggae sound with a classic 70s/80s vibe. Having spent much of his time listening to both raw early live reggae records, and the far more produced sounds of Bob Marley, Ijahman and Third World, Corin has also been lucky enough to have worked alongside musicians like Toots, Third World, Jimmy Cliff and Buju Banton who have helped influence his brand and his production style today.
Corin grew up in London to the steady vibrations of 1970s sound systems set in amongst the conflicting political hues of the time. His debut EP, launched via the Sound System platform of Brightons eclectic Tru Thoughts imprint, channels a current and nuanced UK roots and reggae sound with a revolutionary message. This summer The Sea is looking forward to hitting the festival circuit as well as uncovering a new project with Benjamin Zephaniah. Each track on the EP will be followed with a music video, so watch out for the first in the series featuring Benjamin Zephaniah and Yaz Alexander.
