Victor Rice is a Latin Grammy award-winning engineer, musician, producer, and a long-time Easy Star Records collaborator. He recently released his new album "Smoke" on Easy Star Records. Known for his remixes, production work, and credits including: The Slackers, Easy Star All-Stars, Bixiga 70, The Toasters and more. "Smoke" takes us into the influence of Brazilian music where the musical stylings of MPB, pagode, and samba rock start to intertwine with Rice’s deep reggae, ska, and dub sensibilities. Rice says, “This record is about finding a way to fuse two different styles of music and dance from the 1960’s, Brazilian samba-rock and Jamaican rocksteady,” Rice explained. “The grail for me would be for people to hear samba-rocksteady (SRS), a bridging of styles that would be at once fresh, but with a beat that would be mutually intelligible by dancers from both traditions.” Ethnomusicologist Daniel T. Neely has summed up the albums qualities inthe liner notes stating "Smoke" embraces the cosmopolitanism of the music that inspired it. It’s an album that lives in New York, Brazil, Jamaica, and Brussels, but it is of the world... Tune in to the informatively crackling interview Dub Kali made with Victor Rice.
