At this time, proper right here, we get to peek into the decked-out lounge of producer Adrian Sherwood’s residence and watch masters of reggae playfully chill. We hear Horace Andy‘s gruff tenor inform tales with 55 years of expertise, rasp and put on.

«You have to dwell, dwell, dwell for at the moment, for tomorrow would possibly by no means come your approach,» he pleads as he sings «At this time Is Proper Right here,» a observe on his 2022 album Midnight Rocker. After which the strains I like greatest, «My mama instructed me after I was a baby, stated all the perfect issues take a short while. However mama was incorrect, incorrect, incorrect, the perfect issues in life come and so they go within the blink of an eye fixed.» All of the whereas, a single snare drum and hi-hat preserve the beat, and the band of bass, guitar, keyboard, sax, trumpet and cello warmly help the feelings pouring from Horace Andy.

Sitting on the fitting facet of the display is Adrian Sherwood, the vastly influential dub producer, banging out stuttered rhythms and textures. Adrian Sherwood produced Midnight Rocker, and 6 months later its youthful, dubbed-out sibling, Midnight Scorchers. Seeing all these pioneers pouring out these chill vibes for this Tiny Desk (residence) live performance is a complete thrill.
