Following the huge success of the lead single Settle Down (NUP 018EP) Blend Mishkin and the Roots Evolution band deliver their stunning debut album. Athens, Greece-based producer Blend Mishkin has been putting in work since the mid '90s with releases on Pork Recordings, Tru Thoughts, Shadow Records, and many more. Blend Mishkin and Roots Evolution recorded live, took the results back to the lab for mixing and dubbing, and scouted for vocal performers to bring the rhythms to life, focusing on using both international and local talent to give a wide breadth of influences and themes. Featured performers include Rebel Salute show-stopper and Juno Award-winner Exco Levi, seasoned Jamaican veteran Skarra Mucci, UK reggae and dancehall don Gappy Ranks, Italian raggamuffin KG Man, Mandinka Warrior from Denmark, fellow Greek BNC, Suga Roy, Conrad Crystal, Jammaroots, Georges Perin, and Don Caramelo. Retaining an authentic vibe while keeping it current, Survival of the Fittest is a truly modern roots reggae album.
