SEASONAL REGGAE SOUNDCLASH
Irie holiday vibes as conceived by legendary artist and Stance Punk & Poet Kevin Lyons, our latest collaboration with everyone's favourite creature creator showcases all-new nondenominational Ornament Bulb Monsters holding down their own little shindig in proper dancehall style. Here's a quick breakdown from the artist himself…
"I've designed bulbs with faces on them before. Bulbs make for easy faces. As for colour and patterns, I've always been fascinated by how close the Christmas palette of red, gold and green resembles that of dancehall and rocksteady. It's to the point where there are a ton of holiday records done by reggae artists, including multiple covers of traditional Christmas carols. The Star of David is also widely used throughout reggae culture, and, of course, is a strong, respectful nod to Hanukkah. These influences are meant to be fun, multi-layered and all-inclusive for all faiths and practices. Just think of them as the ultimate Red Hot Holiday Reggae Party socks!"
Just in time for whatever you feel like celebrating this time of year, Lyons’ latest is now available on Stance and to keep the island riddims pumping, Lyons has personally compiled his own holiday reggae party playlist on Spotify for all to enjoy. rewind, selecta!
