‘Fly Away Home’ is the result of a typical evening at Reality Shock Studio.. spontaneous, natural & unplanned, the song & video came about in a matter of hours when Ras Solomon AKA James Brown, a veteran roots reggae singer from London UK, made his first visit to Kris Kemist’s infamous studio.
Instantly the vibes came together & instrument after instrument was laid down, creating a 100% live, organic & rhythmical soundscape. With the creative energies in full flow, Kemist even recorded instruments made out of household objects such as ash trays, chopsticks & even breathing down the microphone, as he explained “the song begins with the breath & heartbeat”.
Once the riddim & vocals were laid down by Solomon, two local artists who happened to be in the studio at the time: Silqe (an upcoming UK rapper) & Ezra (an RnB/soul singer) also touched the mic, creating a union of different musical worlds.
The whole production process was documented by Spencer of Katch Bullet Video Productions, who over the last few years has become a regular follower & supporter of the Reality Shock family. Together Katch Bullet & Reality Shock are currently working on a feature length DVD documentary project (release yet date to be announced).
