Purple Reggae for One Love Festival

Fun Lovin Criminals crew bring reggae version of Prince’s Purple Rain

Radio Riddler aka Fun Lovin Criminals' members Fast, and Frank Benbini will be showcasing their 'Purple Reggae', a reggae tribute to Prince and the 'Purple Rain' album in its entirety at this summer's One Love Festival.

According to an interview with drummer Frank Benbini the album is a true labour of love, "We'd done a lot of remixes for a lot of people, so why not do the soundtrack to 'Purple Rain'? I started to approach different people and one person I approached was Sinéad O'Connor. She hasn't sung a Prince song since 'Nothing Compares 2 U' which was an international number one so I didn't think she'd go for it. But she did, and did a version of 'I Would Die 4 U'. Amazing! Then we've got Plan B, he's doing one, Madness are doing one, the singer from UB40's doing one. So, yeah, that's a great little project we’ve got going!"

One Love Festival goers will get to hear the album in full at this year's event. Acts also confirmed today are Jumping Jack Frost, Nicky Blackmarket, Funky Flirt, Uncle Dugs, Dialect, Kosine, and Mr Innovation.

One Love festival - Friday 10th to Sunday 12th August 2012 - The Hop Farm, Paddock Wood, Tonbridge, Kent.
