Solid 80s vibes on Micah Shemaiah’s Roots I Vision

unnamedJamaican singer and producer Micah Shemaiah rose to prominence a few years ago after dropping excellent cuts like Reggae Rockit and Dread at the Control.

His debut album was the combination album Shalalak and it was followed by the superb Original Dread. In February this year his third album was put out.

Roots I Vision was recorded in Switzerland with Mathias Liengme and Nicolas Meury at the controls and it has a solid 80s vibe throughout, mainly due to the use of Simmons drums, which gives a nice early Black Uhuru feel to the sound.

This set is the strongest reggae album of 2018 so far, though in fierce competition with Hollie Cook’s Vessel of Love. Check the title track, Throw No Stone or the militant single Zion Trod to catch a feel of the album.
