According to a recent interview with Burning Spear, he states that Reggae is losing its roots and if we ever expect the music to return to its glory days the producers need to know that the music needs direction!
He realizes that young producers turned the once organic sound of reggae to an artificial beat by using equipments that mimic the sounds of an authentic band.
Spear also states that he feels it is difficult but imperative for Jamaica to build a national recording studio that offers budding producers and musicians an opportunity while encouraging them to record music the traditional way.
