So good catching up with the amazing King Size Slim again.
Toby Barelli aka KING SIZE SLIM began experimenting with a new sound. A sound fully conscious of its roots but with a new story to tell. Having spent the previous 4 years touring and recording with TwoTone pioneers ‘The Selecter’ along with other Ska and Reggae luminaries, the sound was always going to be rhythm-led, heavy on the bass and rootsy in the melody.
The trademarks of that sound emanate from a road-beaten Resophonic guitar, a powerful and direct vocal style and a peculiar rhythm section of Double Bass and a duo of Percussionists.
It‘s a heavyweight acoustic sound that shouts loud and kisses sweet.
” …..few artists create a distinctive sound KSS has done just that, terrific stuff…” R2 Magazine 5 star review
