Having an extensive career that dates all the way back to 1984, each of the 11 members of Inner Shade know their history of worldbeat, reggae, R&B and jazz. Featuring the likes of composer Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick and vocalist Maysa -- both known for leading the legendary jazz get-up Incognito -- Inner Shade have been compared to their full-time gig with an addition to their use of synthesizers, drum machines, and tape loops. With all these elements combined, their debut 4 Corners was released in early 1999.
Inner Shade is a side project by Jean Paul “Bluey” Maunick. This project features Bluey’s son DJ Venom along with Incognito regulars Maysa and Chris Ballin.
