SMOKE & MIRRORS SOUND SYSTEM is the brainchild of John Roy (Unsteady, Gangbusters), who created a traditional ska /reggae studio supergroup during the 2020 shut down. The band’s current release output all across the world is mind blowing. LIQUIDATOR & BADSONIC in Europe plus STEADY BEAT in L.A. have all released 7 inch singles to follow up the “STRENGTH IN NUMBERS” full length – now it’s JUMP UP’s turn with this boss 10 inch vinyl EP pressed on classic black, blue, and red vinyl! We’ve reunited SYMARIP on record! Both sides stand on their own and deliver killer reggae grooves for skins, rudeboys, and roots fans worldwide! Just look below at the all the musicians on these tracks – plus ROGER RIVAS dubs both tunes as well! Exclusively partnered in the EU with Grover Records / Moskito Promotion! Once again the incredible CHEMA SKANDAL has designed original art that’s vibrant and breathtaking! Limited to 200 copies on each color. 

4 Song EP including two originals and dubs of each!
