July 10. 2014 12:56AM

The Super Secret Project (SSP), creators of the YouTube hit “Granite State of Mind,” and reggae-rock band Roots of Creation celebrate New Hampshire ties with a new release, “Summer in the 603.”

The parody combines samples of Sublime’s “Doin’ Time” and the state song with original lyrics and music.

The song highlights myriad activities and locations best enjoyed during the summer season in The Granite State, including Water Country, Pawtuckaway State Park and Hampton Beach.

“The Voice’s” Josh Logan, comedians Jimmy Dunn and Bob Marley, “Dancing with the Stars” and former “Granite State Challenge” host Tom Bergeron, and “America’s Got Talent” third-place winners and Las Vegas headliners Recycled Percussion are featured in this most recent ode to New Hampshire.

The vocals were recorded at Studio Metronome (Metronome Media Group) in Brookline, and were mixed by Pete “Boardz” Peloquin, who has worked with Allman Brothers, Guru and Peter Frampton.

The SSP features Christian Wisecarver, Billy Donohoe and Darby DeChristopher, while Roots of Creation includes singer/guitarist Brett Wilson, keyboardist Tal Pearson, drummer Mike Chadinha, Nick Minicucci on bass and saxophonist Andrew Riordan. Roots of Creation has shared the stage with Slightly Stoopid, Rusted Root, The Wailers, and is slated to be part of the national “Soulshine” tour at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion at Meadowbrook in Gilford on July 19.
