Vibratone is a freshly formed Conscious Reggae band in Phnom Penh Cambodia.
Everything started in December 2012 when guitarist Ben aka “Schkooty” met bassist Julian, aka “Gorimaa”.
Ben was an experienced reggae guitarist, coming from the famous crew “Dub Addiction”, and a longtime experienced live gigger with many bands in the Khmer capital like “Amplifire”, and the “the Schkoots”.
Julian left France and his previous reggae band “Humble Youth”, to come to Cambodia and create the original Reggae Bar with his Khmer wife and family in 2010. Although he had stopped playing live gigs, he always continued to create reggae riddim tracks on his computer.
Listening together to these musical compositions, Ben and Julien thought they could be a good start to building a new reggae band in Phnom Penh, with one aim: No cover songs, strictly original creations!
At this time destiny made them meet their Brazilian drummer, Mr. Luis aka “crazy drummer” and Filipino jazzy singer “Sistah Maia”. While both had to learn everything from scratch about reggae, fortunately their long time musical experiences allowed them to burn the steps very quickly.
So everything was ready for their first gig at the opening of Slur Bar in July ’13, when they completed the band with Mr. Vibol the Khmer-Barang keyboardist, and Filipino solo guitarist, Leo aka “El Rey”.
So now here it is, VIBRATONE a come inna di place with 14 original songs! Because reggae music is made with deep tone… to vibrate on!
