Yes folks… lots of tunes from Marcia Griffiths on this Roots Edition of Ackee & Saltfish, plus these new releases – hot off the press:
CHEZIDEK – RISING SUN
Here we have the long awaited follow-up to Chezidek’s debut „Harvest Time“. Again a top-notch production courtesy of Fatis‘ Xterminator-camp, again some choruses with hooklines that keep you spellbound. On the other hand I am not sure if Chezidek’s singing is just absolutly brilliant or simply out of tune. You decide.
LEROY SIBBLES – ON TOP
Here’s our #3 and final in our little series of Leroy Sibbles-rereleases… and we saved the best ‚til the end: „On Top“ is one of THE albums produced in the 80’s. Everyone, and I do mean everyone, was skanking to this one back in 1984. Excellent production, brilliant songwriting, superb performance, one of our all-time-favorites – a must-have. Nuff said. Get it. Now. Here: http://www.leroysibbles.com
What would you think if a guy packs his guitar and drum-computer, flies down to JA and records an album with Cutty Ranks, Michael Rose, Bounty Killer, Turbulence, Barrington Levy, Frankie Paul, Sly & Robbie, Skyjuice, Danny English and many more?
I bet you’d think: „WICKED!!!“ And yes, that’s a true story and that album is wicked indeed. The guy’s name is Jeep MacNichol and the album is entitled „Mr. Anonymous“. Mind you, this music is not Roots-Reggae, nor is it Dancehall – but a journey into unknown territory. Take a bit of Folk, Pop, Rock, Electronica, HipHop, Dancehall and mix it: Still you’re not even coming close to what this music is all about.

*drumroll* Ladies & Gentlemen, introducing to you a brandnew artist hailing from St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands… here’s… Pressure!!!
Yes, we present you tunes from the very talented Pressure, taken from his soon-to-be released album „The Pressure Is On“. This youth will make it big… hear him first on Ackee & Saltfish!
