STEEL PULSE may have explored various styles of music since they started out in 1975, but when it comes to the message, the UK's Grammy – Winning reggae band has remained close to their roots. The Group have continued their commitment to fighting injustice, educating the masses, and promoting positive messages through spiritually uplifting music.
"We just can't ignore the politics, because every life and soul that's born on this earth is a political manoeuvre for someone, at some stage", Hinds explains. "From a spiritual aspect, it's really an upliftment through facing reality – what's out there. We deal with positive spirits. It means putting aside the guns, the drugs and all of the things that are ailments of society – especially the black communities right now".
STEEL PULSE have always taken their causes to heart, filing a $1 million class action lawsuit against New York City's Taxi & Limousine Commission. The group charged that cabbies refused to pick up blacks and Rastafarians throughout the streets of New York.
Organically Good Trio feat. Paul W (of Slightly Stoopid)
Organically Good Trio is a Hammond organ driven roots instrumental group out of Boston. Founded by Slightly Stoopid keyboard player Paul Wolstencroft, the band has a sound reminiscent of the great organ trio albums of the late 60's. The music takes elements of jazz, and incorporates a blues, R&B and church. There's a lot of feeling involved, and a lot of Ray Charles influence, and even some hints of reggae. At times they sound like Grant Green, the Meters or even Jimmy McGriff, but also can resemble newer bands such as the Mighty Imperials and the New Mastersounds. There's a reason they use a Hammond organ in a church; its because it's a very soulful instrument. It's like an entire orchestra at your fingertips. Often imitated never duplicated, the Hammond organ is the organ sound everyone is after.
