LionVibes - A brief history.
Logo & Text courtesy of Lionvibes.
The "LionVibes" label has been long in the making!! We started out selling records in Brixton market, London, every Saturday in
1997...The market carried on uninterrupted through to 2003, when we launched our revamped LionVibes website. The idea is to sell original records from all eras in Jamaican music, and then with the lions share of the proceeds go create new riddims using the best musicians and artists in JA and the UK.
We always use Kirk Bennett and Trevor McKenzie on drums and bass.. These two musicians are the drummmer and bassist who tour with reggae veteran Beres Hammond.. They back LionVibes as The Mighty Lions...
The label is starting with five 45s for the "Wild Fire" riddim...All tunes were recorded at Anchor in JA, voiced at 321 and mixed at Bobby Digital. We have laid down another 4 great riddims..All recorded LIVE at Anchor Studios in JA..We will be back in Jamaica soon to voice the next set to be released...
To do this we have to sell lots of records..!!
