Jokerface-ska from Alps

MptyZine promo exclusive for Romania.

Jokerface 2017 - CD Cover (Medium)

This is for sure a band that drives me back 10 years ago in my hometown with my friends dancing like crazy. Jokerface are coming from the Alps in South Tyrol/Italy and are playing a ska/reggae that will go directly to your soul. They have started in 2004 as a punk band but with years they have changed a bit with traditional ska, early 60’s Jamaican beats, a bit of Mod and Rocksteady all together packed with feelings and soul. 10 tracks to skank, share a beer and remember the good old days. My personal favorites: „I Remember”, „Lucky Man” and „Jokerface”. One of the good bands to start in 2018 and one band to check for sure. Check them on

1.Jokerface 2.Rock My Soul 3.Time Will Show 4.I Remember 5.Troubles 6.Lonely Boy 7.Trippin’ 8.Lucky Man 9.School Bully 10.Sticks and Stones

For the fans of: 86 Crew, Scrapy, No Respect, The Orobians, RedSka, Valkyrians

Copasetics promo EP

Copasetics are just perfect for this summer for hopping on the beach. 5 friends formed a band in 2009 in York (UK) they make a mix from traditional ska with some 2 tone elements and of course new school sound. Although the EP has a long name The Stark Comprehension Of Life In The Final State Of Decay, it’s a must for all the genere fans, too bad that only has 4 tracks. You can compare with bands like: Random Hand, Sonic Boom Six, New Riot, Mad Caddies or Mustard Plug. This EP is like a bomb of energy and skanking in the summer night with your friends. I reccomend: Phantom Signals and like a minus: EP it’s too short. Cheers!

Rehab Nation liberte!

RIOT is an old acquaintance of ours and Rehab Nation is their new package.A mix of reggae, ska and punk straight from the planet Earth. Currently the band got four songs on the myspace account for 2011 and preparing a brand new album of 12 tracks. Band’s lyrics talk about various social issues, antiracism in a mix of Hungarian, Romanian and English with humor, irony and sometimes with a little anger.The band prepares two concerts with Dance Trauma and Ska Fara Trompete and definitely want to see them at work in several cities and of course with a lot of albums. Coming up this summer on every radio station a chiilin mix with Rehab Nation!. Yeah i forgot the main word is: REINVENTE! ROMALE!, LIBERTE!.
cheers boys and girl!
