It is most certainly one the big Ska releases of the year 2012: “Piping Hot” by Dr. Ring Ding Ska-Vaganza. The CD is out today on the German label Pork Pie Records , the vinyl comes from Buenritmo (Barcelona/Catalonia/Spain). And the band itself is also a German-Iberian co-operation.
The international spirit of the album doesn’t stop here. Many more parts of the world were involved in making this record happen. The music is of Jamaican origin, of course, the mixing of the record was done in Macao, Hong Kong. Doreen Shaffer (living in New York) made a stop on tour in Dr. Ring Ding’s hometown Muenster to record a duet.
Read more about all this in an interview with Dr. Ring Ding that is being published here at REGGAE STEADY SKA. But first get your hand on that record or simply listen to “Piping Hot” by Dr. Ring Ding Ska-Vaganza at Amazon.
