Inspired by bands like The Clash, The Specials, and Redskins, Germany’s T-KILLAS released their debut album “It’s Up To You!” in 2014 full of energetic 2-Tone ska mixed with a heavy dose of mod, garage, and punk. It’s fast, snotty and cheeky, with lots of guitar and organ as well as a dominant saxophone that brings to mind many of the European bands from the early 90’s ska explosion. 2016 saw the band’s first vinyl release with the 7 ” single “Kicking The Pressure ” on Grover Records and Casual Records. In 2020, after a 6 year wait, the second album “Awareness” is finally here on Fire and Flames Music and Grover Records. Not to be outdone are Holland’s Downbeat Detonators who play their own unique brand of rocksteady and ska, inspired by the era of Jamaican music during the ’60s and ’70s. Horn driven melodies, organ scorchers, sweet vocal harmonies and a strong rocksteady riddim section are the main ingredients of their explosive mix of ska, rocksteady, early reggae and calypso. Original songs inspired by artists like Don Drummond, Prince Buster, Jackie Mittoo, Toots & the Maytals, and Desmond Dekker . It’s Detonation Time with their band new vinyl album “Reggae Boomshot!”.
