Stage Of Unity - Good Connection

Stage of Unity to wrocławski kultowy zespół roots reggae, który reaktywował się w roku 2005. W latach 80-tych wsławił się niesamowitymi występami na festiwalu "Reggae nad Wartą". Niewątpliwym atutem grupy jest wokalista Kristafari z bardzo charakterystycznym, niemal jamajskim głosem. Przesłanie "Stejdżów" to mocno gitarowe, przebojowe reggae z natrętnym śpiewaniem Kristafariego i częstymi wycieczkami w stronę dubu. Ich kawałki to melodyjne w stylu najlepszych dokonań DAABU i odjechane na wzór Immanuela kompozycje, wspaniale uprzestrzennione przez subtelne dośpiewy Violki i uzdrawiające bębnienie Masaja.
