A collaborative effort, Ghosts Outside was recorded in early 2011 at Livingston Studios in North London. Using the original tracks as a basis, with Steve’s guidance Dennis added additional instrumentation; the tracks were later given the classic ‘Bovell production’ treatment.

Dennis is a renowned and much respected artist / producer, central in the development of British reggae from the 1970s onwards.  He gained renown with his own group, Matumbi and also worked with the likes of Linton Kwesi Johnson, I-Roy and Janet Kay. He also produced a wide diversity of bands including The Pop Group, Orange Juice and The Slits. He recently featured heavily in the BBC4 Reggae Britannia documentary.
