||Featured on a remarkable list of records and having released a stunning number of own productions the members of international Reggae superstar Gentleman‘s backing band „Evolution“, Josi Coppola, Fabian „Odi“ Zepezauer and Frank „Pollensi“ Pollak have quite a resumé to impress with. Now the three Berlin based musicians have taken the next step and founded their own label BuffBaff Records with its first project ready to hit the streets. „Old School“ is a full length vintage Reggae album by Jamaican vocalist Denham Smith, that pays tribute to the roots of the genre and the captivating and unique sound of Studio One and Channel One. To get the authentic feel and re-create the vibe of the 60s and 70s in the most genuine way the crew recorded at „Philophon“ Studio. The Berlin studio run by Max Weissenfeld is fully equipped with original devices from those decades and has already welcomed the likes of Jimi Tenor and The Pyramids to work there. Besides the smooth and skillful voice of Denham Smith, „Old School“ also features guest musicians such as Dean Fraser on saxophone and other longtime companions. Together with Josi Coppola as producer, the band has created an outstandingly authentic vintage vibe and a musical depth enriched by Smith‘s lyrical expertise, his vocal strength and expressiveness. Denham Smith was born in St. Ann, Jamaica and grew up in a house full of music. Especially the record collection of his father impressed him when he was young and got inspired and drawn to artists like Dennis Brown, I Roy, Sugar Minott etc. When Josi showed him the instrumental tracks of „Old School“, the sounds instantly brought back childhood memories to him where he then envisioned being one of the singers of his fathers collection. Without creating copies of those legends, Denham Smith perfectly transferred the essence of their styles into his own songs and his very own timbre. The result is a soundtrack of the golden era of original Roots Reggae Music.
