NIGHT OWLS is a group and production team featuring members of Los Angeles groups THE LIONS and THE AGGROLITES. This core features Blake Colie on drum kit, Dave Wilder on bass, Roger Rivas on piano & organ and Dan Ubick on guitars & percussion.
NIGHT OWLS fist offering brings a unique take on two classic soul hits but with a Jamaican twist that is fresh yet true to the original intent. Part of F-Spot Records “Homage Series” Side A keeps the uptempo groove alive on the Betty Harris / Allen Toussaint classic “There’s A Break In The Road” featuring L.A’s own soul belter Afrodyete (Breakestra) on vocals. Side B is a more moody but uptempo dub-infused rendition of Marvin Gaye’s “Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)” lead by Terin Ector (Orgone, Moswen, Soluzion) whose whirling vocals will keep you wanting more.
Another DanUbe Production recorded and mixed to perfection at The Lion’s Den utilizing the Roland Space Echo and the Mu-Tron Bi-Phase to give NIGHT OWLS a vintage Jamaican twist.
