An album that goes in search of, and universal cooler than previous editions Latin American urban concept.

In 27 years of hard road ONICE aware of the existence of more than 90 artists from reggae in Venezuela, which address the same musical concept, it has achieved an identity that leads to recognition as a group of Latin sounds, without complexes take the elements modernism and the computer gives them, achieving a purely electronic sound in reggae that unlike any grouping of gender in Spanish there across the continent.

The new album is futuristic and Onice particular is how to express the concepts of music greats like Maná (Cachito), Bob Marley (Chant Down Babylon Spanish and instrumental), and Toots & The Maytals (Bam Bam) versions executed his way to a soothing, sweet and refreshing way.

The key element of this new album is humility in the musicality and sound that reflects a quintet work totally different from the typical Spanish bands that require more than 10 musicians or solo singer who depends on the music track.

The album was produced by large studios like Venezuelans Alexander Gonzalez credited with making major productions since the time of the famous Hugo Blanco.

Music is an art where the magic factor is present, much more when we review the reggae music we refer to as God. We can not explain this if we are not going to the beginnings and roots, and that is why we can not define the reggae in Spanish if we draw no ONICE as a reference and a legend at the beginning of this kind, but still remains alive. This is not just a story, with historical evidence through videos, recordings and even record materials separately from the time of its formation in February 1987. Today, reggae in Spanish is highly diversified, but also has proletarian and the existence of the virtual world is becoming easier to access your musical performance. Onice has always been true, has actually been more consistent live work the band with musicians, so you can feel through your information.

Onice currently training held in Miranda Genis founder with his brother Rafael "Chico" Miranda, Jesus Daniel Gonzalez. Onice is a reference and guide for large groups of today, Amnesty International produced a compilation of Reggae Venezuela entitled "ELEVA TU HUELLA para la Esperanza" which displayed the most representative artists of the genre of country. Venezuelan music scene is very complicated and linked to the political and social problems has not been easy to see fruits of musical testimonies that have been made, but we can ensure that the independent movement has left many traces of quality despite the crisis.
