Music producer Dan Harper is celebrating the release of the sixth album from his Invisible System production camp.
Tiga Teg Tibs has been released on his Harper Diabate Records label and is already receiving critical acclaim.
Dan, from Frome, is music technology/production tutor and recording studio manager at Writhlington School, which has its studios open to the general public.
The new album offers 13 tracks of Ethiopian, Jamaican and UK fusions.
As well as programming, mixing and producing the album, Dan's touch can also be found on synthesisers, guitar, bass and drums.
He started his Invisible System project while he was an aid worker in Africa, bringing together some of the most highly regarded musicians from the continent.
His first recordings took place on a portable music system in a music studio with tin roof at the back of his home in Addis Ababa.
On his return to England he moved to Frome where he continues to build on his reputation.
His latest offering is already getting airplay on Radio 3 and 6 and other music channels.
Dan said: "I am happy with the album.
"It wasn't planned, I just realised as I was steadily working on mixing tracks I had been working on that suddenly another album had come together.
"It was nice to add some real collaborations this time with Zion Train / Baka Beyond and Juldeh Camara (Robert Plant etc) rather than just getting some known musicians to drop an extra tinkle of sound into the mix."
Dan has again placed some more traditional fusions and some more ground breaking sounds involving dub, punk, jungle, hip hop, reggae, rock, funk etc.
He said: "I know when I sit in the front rooms with my oldest friends and they like the more wayward fusions that I made the right move again."
