Horseman has been on the scene for over three decades and has music in his blood – his father had a sound system and his mother – Miss Girlie – recorded with legendary singer Laurel Aitken in the 50s and 60s. He has previously worked with musicians and producers including Tippa Irie, Max Romeo, Gregory Isaacs, Sugar Minott, Jah Shaka, Mad Professor, Barrington Levy and The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra with John Holt.
Dawn of the Dead was album recorded at Studio Dub in Thailand before being mixed at Prince Fatty’s Ironworks studio in Brighton.
“Mike just asked, ‘you ever been to Thailand?’ and we went. There were great vibes, we walked in and it all fell into place. We were looking to get that 80s digital sound and all that original equipment was just there waiting for us. It was fate.”
The album title is inspired by a long night of watching zombie films in the studio, but the set is described as being saturated with Horseman’s positive vibes.
“If my music brings joy into someone’s life then that’s my aim, it’s there to make people happy. I’m not in competition with anyone, music shouldn’t be competitive. I’m just me doing my thing.”
