Street Pharmacy releases new single "Waterslide" ft. illScarlett and Trouble & Daughter

Street Pharmacy releases new single "Waterslide" ft. illScarlett and Trouble & Daughter

Street Pharmacy, lead by reggae artist Ryan Guay, teamed up with fellow Canadian reggae-rockers and Warped Tour veteran’s members of illScarlett and Trouble & Daughter to create “Waterslide".

“All three bands have played together quite a bit throughout the years. We’ve always admired each other’s take on reggae-rock and hip-hop. We were all playing together in Toronto on the same bill back in January and started talking about the records we loved and BAM! We got together and wrote and recorded “Waterslide”. It came really easy to all of us and the vibes were perfect. It felt like we had been in same band for decades.” – Ryan Guay of Street Pharmacy

Fellow collaborator Will Marr, co-producer of "Waterslide" and guitarist of illScarlett has just come off of recording an album with legendary Sublime producer David Kahne. Enlightened by the experience, the production of "Waterslide" returns to the sound of illScarlett’s "Heaters" as well as classic Sublime inspired turntablism to create a track that is true to SoCal reggae-rock grooves; but with a conscious lyrical twist.

“Ryan drove up from the Niagara Region and played the preliminary idea for Waterslide in John’s living room. Right away, John and I were able to take it where it needed to go. John has this stellar golden baritone voice that blends great with Ry’s lyrical assault. Watching those two create eerie harmonies set it all off for me. The subject matter being as metaphorical as it is, allowed me to push the limits on my guitar work. I wanted to make the solo as strange as the lyrics are.” – Will Marr of illScarlett

John Doherty was also a member of illScarlett for many years and is the visionary behind reggae-folk act "Trouble and Daughter". Along with being a co-writer on "Waterslide", John is featured as the co-lead vocalists on the track. John is an incredible multi-talented musician, and triples up on Waterslide as an instrumentalist, harmonist and DJ.

“There was something raw about scratching real vinyl on this track. It’s somewhat of a lost art form these days. Will, Ryan and I are all huge fans of 90s Golden Age hip-hop so scratching some old vinyl felt right to us. I am glad we did it.” – John Doherty of Trouble & Daughter.
