“There are so many bands who inevitably go back to the root but are not always successful in providing the organic fruit, I feel you guys are an exception”
Da Buzzboy Fitzroy, Solar FM

The Impellers first full album ‘Robot Legs’ was released on UK independent label Freestyle Records. Since its release in 2009, the band have been busy touring across the UK, Netherlands, Spain, France and elsewhere. They have shared stages with some of the finest funk, soul, hip-hop, jazz and scratch DJ talent from around the world. Their ever-expanding CV includes shows with Marva Whitney, Breakestra, James Taylor Quartet, The Bamboos, Lack of Afro, Kid Koala, Hexstatic, Mr Thing (The Scratch Perverts),
DJ Bizznizz (UK DMC Championships winner),

Australian Afro Beat, Roots, Reggae, Funk – The Strides – Reclamation (Full Album Download)


With their explosive melting pot of Afrobeat, Reggae, Hip-Hop and Dancefloor jazz, 10-piece ensemble THE STRIDES has already won over a steadfast following in Australia. After a lengthy series of gigs that includes supporting afrobeat legend Tony Allen and becoming a headline act at both the Bellingen Global Carnival and Peats Ridge Festival, this dynamic outfit is ready to launch its new album “Reclamation” on Record Kicks. With a heavy rhythm section and a powerful 3-piece horn section, The Strides deliver a captivating blend of funky afrobeat, roots reggae, hip hop grooves, dubbed out beats, and hypnotic rhythms.

Featuring vocals by reggae master Ras Roni from Trinidad via London and rising hip hop star from Fiji MC Lil Gzeus (Little Jesus) over the super skanky, infectious, horn-heavy grooves of the band, “Reclamation” perfectly showcases the mighty force of The Strides’ innovative sound. From afrobeat-infused instrumental romps such as “Umbi Gumbi” and “Well Hung Parliament” to hip hop stormers such as first single “Reclamation”, to hints of roots reggae on “Storm Cloud” and “Fresh Lady”, Australia’s best kept secret The Strides impressively mix and combine a series of genres, and the result is something special, indeed!

About The Strides:

With a calling card of powerfully melodic horns, heavy rhythms, infectious bass lines, and the easy musings of Reggae master Ras Roni, from Barbados via London, and Fijian MC LTL Gzeus (Little Jesus), The Strides faithfully channel the sounds of Bob and Damien Marley, Fela Kuti, Tony Allen, Barrington Levy and Mos Def. less
