"Former lead singer and main songwriter for the roots Reggae trio Foundation back in the late 80's, early 90's, Keith Foundation is releasing Hi Yo, his first solo album. Arranged by Robbie Shakespeare, this decidedly roots Reggae LP contains 6 songs in what the Jamaicans call the 'discomix' format: each song is followed seamlessly by its dub version to showcase the Black Disciples' artisan-like musicianship in a dub style and complement Keith's superb vocals. Recorded at Anchor in Kingston, Hi Yo features the nucleus of the legendary Black Disciples (Burning Spear, Justin Hinds, Ken Boothe...), reunited for the first time in 40 years: Robbie Shakespeare (bass, guitar), 'Horsemouth' Wallace (drums), 'Chinna' Smith (guitar), and Robbie Lyn (keyboards). Hi Yo was recorded in just two days the old school way, with this dream team playing live in just one raw take on a Monday, while the vocals were finalized the following day. The album was then mixed and dubbed by sound wizard Gaylard Bravo with Guillaume Bougard."
