Pioneer of the SoCal reggae-rock scene and founding member of Long Beach Dub All Stars, RAS-1, has released new single “California Radio” today.
Speaking on today’s release, RAS-1 shares, “I got a ghettoblaster for Christmas when I was 14, and I never left home without it. From the block to the beach I shared the soundtrack of my life. Be it Fishbone, Black Flag, Yellow Man, or Dio…. I couldn’t live without my radio.”
“California Radio” follows previous single, “Take Me Home” (co-written and produced by Fat Mike of NOFX) an emotional tribute to RAS-1’s late father and features on his upcoming self-titled EP produced by Jungle Josh and due out on Fat Wreck label imprint, Bottles To The Ground on June 1st. The artwork for the EP, the “California Radio” single and the lyric video were all designed by famed poster artist EMEK. Pre-orders for the EP are available HERE.
