2008... a hot & sweaty year for Phoenix, Arizona. The Recession was near, and people all around had no desire to do much of anything at all.

From this idle time saw the nexus of RELAXO, a reggae project that brought together musicians Cypriano Rizla of the Great Stone Soundsystem (Dr. Rock) & Ranking Freckleface from the Phoenix Ital Plate Sound System.

Encompassing a wild array of Jamaican influences, RELAXO has created styles ranging from early Lee "Scratch" Perry to ethereal versions and dub cuts similar in vein to Augustus Pablo or Lloyd "Bullwackie" Barnes.

Please have a listen to the audio clips and sift through the site for digital downloads, vinyl purchases, and more. RELAXO!

The Orangewood Sessions is a brief introduction to Relaxo; four very short instrumentals recorded over a very short period of time in a small apartment next door to RELAXO's apartment manager. Most of the tunes were recorded initially as drum and organ straight to a Marantz digital stereo recorder. Later, after acquiring Pro Tools, overdubs of additional organ, bass, percussion, melodica, guitar and helicopter were performed. RELAXO often went bananas while tracking these tunes for your listening pleasure. We hope you enjoy them too!
