Globalization is amazing. 80s digital dancehall cult singer Everton Chambers has just released his debut album. On the Swedish underground label Fast Forward Sound, a label that has only released one production prior to Everton Chambers’ brand new twelve track set.
Walk in Peace was recorded in Stockholm, Sweden, with production by Fast Forward Sound, Viktorious and One Away Studios. Apparently Everton Chambers spent about a month on one of the producers’ couch while recording the album.
Thumping and bouncy mid 80s and early 90s sounding riddims lay the foundation for Everton Chambers’ passionate, gospel-flavored, singing style, often reminiscent of the late and great Garnett Silk.
And it actually sounds like a vintage album recorded by using only a Casio keyboard and a Commodore 64. The riddims are simple yet effective and tuff and Everton Chambers’ voice doesn’t have much backing vocals, which adds to the no-frills feeling. The only track that has something resembling to a grand chorus is the dark and roaring They Can’t Run, one of a majority of cultural numbers.
Walk in Peace is available on digital platforms and as a limited to 500 edition LP.
