Hey there dear listeners,
hope you all are safe and doing well.
As many you might know many events have been postponed or cancelled due to the current situation, but we can't help but dreaming about the past couple of years and all the events we have been covering and hope to live again all those beautiful moments and days.
Last year we went to Rototom Sunsplash and we had the chance to interview Acsel the front man of the Reggae Rebel Band from Italy after their performance at the Rototom's Lion Stage.
We hope you will enjoy this interview and that we are keeping you company during this hard times :)
-We never had the pleasure to meet, would you like to introduce yourself to our listeners? Tell us something about your performance at Rototom Sunsplash's lion stage.
Hey there, I am Acsel, I am the front man of the Reggae Rebel Band from Italy. The lion stage was amazing, I thought I would be way more nervous performing on such a stage, but when you get on and see all that people just waiting to dance, you start and never stop until the end. We played at 5.45 in the morning and it was full of people that you couldst's see at the end of it. It was very beautiful.
-You also dedicated a song to the beautiful Rototom Sunsplash, how did you came up with the idea?
It sort of came by itself last year I came here to Benicassim, I arrived after the festival was over but I went to the Solé beach (Rototom's beach), and being there was enough to make me create the draft of the lyrics, arrived back home I sat down and wrote the rest
-How did the festival reacted to the song?
Very good, actually the festival produced the music video and it was published in their YouTube channel. It was a nice satisfaction, also because it was a gift we wanted to give to the festival.
-Which is your favorite song in general, a tune that inspire you?
Hard question, there are so many... I guess I'd say Morgan Heritage are one of the bands I appreciate the most, and Alborosie they are two completely different things, Alborosie has more grit and incredible ideas, Morgan Heritage melodies are something incredible where you can only learn from it.
-What are your future projects?
At the end of September (2019) our new album "Sound Good" will be out, which is the album we anticipated here at Rototom. It's a very important album for us, it's our third album but is very different from the other two. With this album we wanted to play with the things we already have and it came out spectacular
