WHAT STARTED EARLY 2012 IN THE HEART OF THE 'RUHRPOTT' AS AN ACOUSTIC DUO OF LEO & RICKY COVERING FAVOURITE WAILERS TUNES, HAS SLOWLY BUT SOLIDLY GROWN TO AN ELEVEN-HEADED FULL FORCE ORGANIC ROOTS REGGAE BAND WITH LOTS OF COMPLETELY ORIGINAL MATERIAL. SOON THE GERMAN REGGAE COMMUNITY KNEW ABOUT 'THE RUDE REMINDERS' AND WE KNEW THAT WE NEED TO GIVE THE PEOPLE AN ALBUM. EVER SINCE 2015 WHEN WE FOUND THE ULTIMATE CONSTELLATION OF MUSICIANS WE ARE CONSTANTLY WORKING ON THIS ALBUM. TO CATCH THE VIBES WITHOUT COMPRESSION & LOSS TURNED OUT TO BE A VERY BIG TASK, TAKING MANY YEARS TO FINALLY GET IT DONE.

SOME MAY ASK WHY WE CHOSE OR EVEN DARE TO PLAY ORIGINAL ROOTS REGGAE MUSIC, WHICH IS VERY EXCLUSIVELY NEXT TO HIS ATTRACTIVE DANCE BEAT PERHAPS THE BLACK DIASPORA'S MOST POWERFUL COUNTER-ATTACK AGAINST MODERNIZED COLONIALISM & PROPAGANDA. IT IS THE VOICE OF THE OPPRESSED TRYING TO GAIN BALANCE IN THE GLOBAL SOCIETY. IT STARTED IN KINGSTON JAMAICA OF COURSE BUT VERY SOON IT WAS SPREAD LIKE SUNRAYS ALLOVER THE EARTH. INSTEAD OF WAREIKA HILLS & JORDAN RIVER WE HERE ONLY HAVE THE FOREST & THE RIVER 'RUHR' BUT STILL WE HAVE THE TERRIBLE GAP BETWEEN THE FINANCIALLY POOR & RICH PEOPLE, ROUGH GHETTOS WHERE YOUNG PEOPLE ARE BEING SUBLIMINALLY FORCED TO ACT CRIMINAL, THE GREAT STRUGGLE WITH POLICE-BRUTALITY, THE POLITICIANS THAT ALWAYS SEEM TO PRETEND MORE THAN ACTUALLY SUPPORT THE PEOPLE & WHAT'S MOST OBVIOUS - THE BASS CULTURE. MUSIC FROM PEOPLE TO PEOPLE. MUSIC FROM THE HEART. MUSIC AGAINST BAD MOOD & SUFFERATION.

"WE ARE 100% HONEST. WE ARE 100% LOVE. WE DON'T PLAY CONSTRUCTED SHOWS NOR DO WE ANIMATE PEOPLE TO DO CERTAIN THINGS. WE RARELY EVEN ASK IF PEOPLE ARE FEELING I-REY. WE SIMLY PRESENT WHAT WE LOVE ABOUT REGGAE MUSIC WHILE WE USUALLY LOSE ANY KIND OF BOUNDARIES. WHOEVER CATCHES US LIVE ON STAGE OR IN OUR REHEARSAL ROOM OR ANYWHERE, WILL SURELY PERCEIVE TRUE EMOTION, FROM ANGER UP TO JOY. ONCE WE START BOUNCING EVEN THE PEOPLE WHO CLAIM TO DISLIKE REGGAE CATCH ON. IT IS ALL STRICTLY LOVE."
