A welcome branching out into the reggae universe, we're proud to present The Circle of Confusion featuring the legendary sweet falsetto voice of Cornel Campbell. Lausanne Switzerland meets Kingston Jamaica in this heartfelt, stripped back, feel-good homage to the late 70s roots reggae style.
The Circle of Confusion are a Swiss production duo: Seb.K (Shakedown productions) and Phil’eas (Black Diamond Music). Diehard reggae fans, they dared to contact their favourite Jamaican singer and got a result with Campbell delivering the lyrics on the spot, written on the day of Nelson Mandela’s death. There’s depth and feeling in this wonderfully lilting, plaintive song, typical of Campbell’s social consciousness and beautiful soul. Hard to believe it was all strung together in a shiny, clean Swiss studio when the sound is so simply warm and Jamaican. Beautiful run on the keyboards by Jah Lou.
If you were moved by the Rhythm and Sound album of 2001, you will not be disappointed with this splendid roots collaboration. We can only hope there’s more to come.

Early Yann Tiersen vibes: when it's joyful and sad at the same time. The sax sings pure and beautiful. The play on words is on point, but the rhythm actually has its personal warm feeling and wood-sound that takes you away to fantasy village dances.
One of those pieces you put in loop for days. Andrea Calligaris

I have been several times in Belém and around in the delta of the Amazon & Tocantins rivers, went to carimbó little festivals in the middle of Marajó Island, taking analog photos of these afro-delta traditions, between 2000-2010 ... this release is huge, I pay homage to Samy Ben Redjeb for suceeding such a project! I hope one day Analog goes for French Guyana, Martinique & Guadeloupe vintage sounds. These CARIMBÓ-SIRIA & candomblé songs are FANTASTIC ! Chat-verre
