Supporting the release of their debut album, Colour Me, Riders Connection, are out and about performing across Europe and the Uk in October and November and then making their way down to South Africa to perform throughout December in and around Cape Town, Johannesburg and the Garden Route.
Riders Connection, have created a debut album that advances on the sound that they are known for, their unique blend of reggae, soul and folky blues, and the inventive arrangement of funky beats created by the ingenious talent of member Mortiz, who produces all the drum sounds with his mouth. The floor-filling beats with groovy baselines from bassist, Alexsej form the core rhythm section throughout the album. Singer & guitarist Philipp, adds an authentic expression of passion through his dynamic and captivating vocals which showcases his command of melody and ablity to imitate the sound of a trumpet, which can easily be mistaken for the real instrument itself. Riders Connection have incorporated their love for Reggae, Hip-Hop and electronic music, producing 10-tracks of flawless, original music, forming a fun and uptempo album that has the subtle touch of summer hip swaying grooves.
Colour is the theme for the album, using different colours to express emotion and a symbol of freedom. Colour Me, shows off the 2 sides of the band, a soft emotional side that is more serious and emotional, and a playful summer side that is more easy going and positive, this is a representation of different colours and how they can be connected to different styles of music and what influences the band.
Watching Riders Connection perform live is a show stopper to say the least, with a subtle injection of humour, and sing along-able choruses, boosted with sweat and an unified experience, you can be sure to leave after their concert smiling, still singing-along to their songs and wanting to continue dancing the night away.
