“Few artists create a distinctive sound, but KSS has done just that…terrific stuff!” ***** Radio 2 Magazine
In 2005, Toby Barelli, aka KING SIZE SLIM, began experimenting with a new sound; a sound fully conscious of its roots but with a new story to tell. Having spent the previous four years touring and recording with TwoTone pioneers The Selecter and other ska and reggae luminaries, the sound was always going to be rhythm led, heavy on the bass and rootsy in the melody.
Big warm tones from KSS’s resonator guitar with a powerful and direct vocal style became the trademarks of the sound. Add rolling grooves, multi-layered percussion and harmonies and you get heavyweight acoustic sound that shouts loud and kisses sweet. A sound audiences love.
