Israel Starr today releases volume two in the 'Producers Chair' Series titled 'Neo90sfunkadelicsouldub'. His first instalment in 2017 'Dancehall Vol.one' won 'Best Roots album' at the 2017 Waiata Maori Music Awards and 'Best Roots Artist' at the 2017 Vodafone NZ Music Awards. This project however sees Israel take a sabbatical from the realm of Reggae and Dancehall and enters into Hip Hop, Soul, Rnb and Funk with colours of roots splashed across the canvas.
The project also features a hand full of Aotearoas best artists, poets and musicians including Te Kahu Rolleston, Melodownz, Awa, Troy King aka The Hongi Slicker and Alistair Fraser who plays sacred traditional Maori instruments on the opening track.
To promote the project Israel joins Che Fu on an Australian tour after coming off his first sold out headline show in South Auckland last week.
