At Modern Mystery we’ve been a long time fan of eclectic artists, especially those who dabble in Reggae and Ska. Today with a special treat with share the new single from Colorado-based Judge Roughneck, titled “The Girl.” From start to finish they bring classic Ska elements as they infuse them with an updated, yet true-to-form Reggae Sound. The group who have been taking the Ska world by storm the past few years, offer up an accessible and welcoming track into the world that gives outsiders to the genre a perfect first glimpse.
Judge Roughneck‘s blend of ska & reggae pays tribute to both the early ’80’s British 2-Tone movement and the original jazz-laced ska of Jamaica, infused with soul, has been electrifying audiences since 1995.They have headlined countless venues and opened for almost every ska and reggae legend who has passed through town, including UB40, Burning Spear, Rebelution, General Public, The Skatalites, The Specials,The English Beat, Fishbone, Damian Marley, Steel Pulse, and The Wailers. They have appeared at the prestigious Reggae on the Rocks Festival at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheater 15 times.
