A blend of reggae and funkified catchiness.


The Caroloregians - Fat Is BackThe Caroloregians are from Belgium and their tongue-twister of a name apparently derives from the Latin spelling of their hometown Charleroi. They have been around since around 2006 when they released 'Organic Coal Beat From The Groovy Mines' on the Grover label. Their sound is very much built around the hammond organ driven, boss reggae style akin to the Harry J Allstars, and The Upsetters, just check out that lazy roll of Keep On Moving inspired Noonish.

They also help build a party feel with a big fat slice of funk to which vocalist Matthew Hardison, originally from New Orleans emphasizes with his southern soul twang on the tracks like Donna Donna. From The Congo Square has something of an afro-beat shuffle which owes a lot to The Rimshots Dance Girl while album closer Quagga blends reggae with a sultry middle eastern vibe.

This album of predominantly instrumental cuts should appeal to fans of bands like The Aggrolites and Greenroom Rockers for its interesting blend of reggae and funkified catchiness.

Available to download from Phoenix City Records and other major outlets.
