Global Reggae Selection Review

Though the rhythms used may be instantly familiar, the abundance of influences, languages, deliveries and styles is anything but. Senegalese deejay Elhadji praises the prophet Mohammed amidst lion roar FX over the real rock rhythm; The Angolan Prince Wadada showcases his Bounty Killa like delivery while riding a sparse digibass cut to Heavenless. Europe is represented by Slovenia’s King B Fine (with a brisk happy jaunt entitled Picture On The Wall), the UK’s Solo Banton (also a member of the Reality Shock crew) and Serbia’s FC Apatride Utd, whose strict and stringent views on how their miserabilist anti-dancing brand of roots be played are testimony to how global and individual the notion of reggae has become. The USA’s contribution is Reason & Prezident Brown with their synth dub meets hip hop beats ode to Mother Earth, Her Beauty. Australia gives us Babylon Mixed Business by King Tide, who (with producers Martin White and Tony Hughes) have a Mungo’s Hi Fi like touch when mixing the different eras of Jamaican music. And whilst no Jamaican artists are included, Mistry Babylon by Trinidad’s I Ancient bears the standard for the Caribbean with one of the strongest offerings on the disc. What’s heartening about the Global Reggae concept is that it makes no attempt to play up to the false authenticity of the “world” music market. The arrangements are often bright, upbeat and fuse acoustic elements like hand drums with unashamedly digital keyboard sounds. The idea of “global reggae” could easily have been married to a nebulous “one love” roots-only philosophy yet dancehall influences are also given plenty of airing. The album is full of bass heavy rhythmic styles that have united as one in the new millennium, but is also symptomatic of a refreshing desire to show the music as it is and not as foreign audiences prefer.
