Damas takes over

346a50cd6dUp and coming Jamaican hip-hop meet roots reggae and dancehall artist Damas has recently put out his debut album Natty Take Ova, a set executively produced by Switzerland’s Weedy G Soundforce.

Natty Take Ova collects twelve tracks spanning one drop reggae, dancehall, ska and hip-hop. A number of the tracks are already released as singles or have appeared on one riddim compilations, for example Easy Skanking on Puff Puff riddim, Money Move on a riddim with the same title and One Chance on Barriers riddim.

Weedy G Soundforce has produced a number of tracks, but onboard is also Pharfar from Denmark and Giddimani Records out of Jamaica.

This album showcases a fresh talent in the same vein as relative newcomers such as Kabaka Pyramid, Protoje and Chronixx, but Damas also shares similarities with a veteran like Lutan Fyah.

Listen to a cut like the bouncy Ghetto revolution to get the vibe.
