Torch blazes on debut album

unnamedKingston-bred singer Torch has been in the music industry for about ten years and already in 2005 he toured with the nowadays incarcerated Buju Banton.

And now – some ten years later – it’s time for his debut effort Self Reclaimed, an eight track set featuring the brilliant Bugle combination Fire Man a Bun, on Weedy G Soundforce’s powerful Gate 7 riddim.

Self Reclaimed is classic contemporary reggae with material recorded for a variety of producers, including Techniques Records and Frankie Music. It balances tough dubby sounds, such as Lion, with smoother efforts like Bangarang and the slick percussion-driven Africa Calling.

Another promising Jamaican talent to keep an eye out for.
