South Florida-based Cali reggae-rock outfit Artikal Sound System introduces their single, “Dissolve,” a track from their upcoming new album, Welcome to Florida, slated to drop February 1, 2022, via Controlled Substance Sound Labs.
Made up of Christ Montague (guitar), Fabian Acuña (bass), Christopher Cope (keys), Adam Kampf (drums), and Logan Rex (vocals), Artikal Sound System has shared the stage with Dirty Heads, Common Kings, Eli Mac, Fortunate Youth, The Hip Abduction, The Green, Badfish, Ballyhoo, Bumpin Uglies, Josh Heinrichs, and The Elovaters, as well performing at Reggae Rise Up, Arizona Roots, Summerfest, Dirty Heads Orlando Vacation, Dry Diggings, Reggae in the Rockies, and, recently, California Roots: BAJA Sessions.
Currently touring, Artikal Sound System will be performing with Fortunate Youth and Katastro.
“Dissolve” opens on lazy, drifting exotic tone topped by the lush, sensuous voice of Logan Rex, imbuing the lyrics with silky-smooth timbres and erotic textures. A syncopated reggae beat gives the rhythm a delicious flow as burping keyboards and gleaming strings slide overhead.
A fat, bass-filled breakdown infuses the song with psychedelic coloration and then rolls back into an alluring reggae melody.
With “Dissolve,” Artikal Sound System delivers cool, stylish reggae showcasing the dazzling voice of Logan Rex.
