Eye On The Prize

A 4 track roots reggae ep (15m 34s) — released July 21st 2008 on Phoe Love Recordings
"Richie is Brighton's Lee Scratch Perry!" Rob da Bank "Maybe not pop as we know it but it should be" Music Week Richie Phoe is a south coast dub-lover who produces the kind of music that's more Kingston Town than Brighton Pier. Following the critical praise he received for last year's Heartical Behaviour single, Richie returns this summer with the Eye On The Prize EP. Four tracks of sunshine ready goodness already being championed by radio tastemakers Rob da Bank, Steve Lamacq and Huw Stephens. Lead track Eye On The Prize is a dirty skanking offering from Richie. Saxon Sound System member and general UK legend Tippa Irie takes time out from working with the Black Eyed Peas and adds his distinctive toastings to the track. Vocals so good that they also provide the opener to second track Eye On The DUB, which takes inspiration from the classic dubs of King Tubby and Scientist. Step At A Time provides a bubblin' backdrop for Mango Seed to drop his sing-jay style over. Currently resident in Jamaica, Seed and Phoe crossed paths at Brighton's Roots Garden Sound System where the Bermudan MC also hooked up with other Brighton stalwarts Black Grass and recorded a track with EZ Rollers. Way Back When meanwhile draws on elements of 1980's disco and reggae to create a sun-drenched, feel-good instrumental, crying out to be accompanied by a long cool glass of your favourite tipple.
