The California reggae scene has been thriving for some time now and vocalist/producer, E.N. Young, formerly of Tribal Seeds, has played a significant role in this success. This classically trained pianist who now plays several instruments including the Melodica fell in love with Jamaican music as a youth in San Diego. He talks candidly about his journey as I sought to learn more about the movement he is pushing in the name of reggae.  By the end of our conversation, I definitely saw E.N as an authentic reggae ambassador.

Spirituality in Reggae

Reggae music is the highest form of spiritual music.

Beginning with the 1970s Roots Reggae era, the lyrics, the drums, and the bass provided the perfect vessel for communicating and spreading messages.

With the help of Bob Marley and the Wailers, these reggae messages spread across the globe.

Exploration of this global phenomenon leads to certain truths.

We discuss some history, events, and examples and give personal accounts of our experiences with spirituality, reggae, and religion.

Who are the Best Vocal Harmony Groups in Reggae?

This mix features reggae’s vocal harmony groups from the 60s, 70s, and 80s.

I took it back to the roots on this one. I focused on songs with an impressive vocal arrangement. This is a specific selection of songs with male singers harmonizing together.

I featured The Wailers, mostly from the “Catch A Fire” album. That album has that very dry, grassroots sound. This was before instrumentation such as horn sections and electric guitars were added. Before the female energy of the I-Threes was added.

The mix also featured some of The Heptones‘ Studio One era hits. I dropped in some original Israel Vibration before they split. Other groups featured are The Techniques, The Abyssinians, The Gladiators, The Sensations, The Mighty Diamonds, and The Silvertones. You also hear songs from Lloyd Parks and We the People, The Sharks, The Royals, The Cables, and The Flames.

Listen to those names and you know these brothers were from a different time. These vocal groups created some of the most beautiful music and the most powerful songs. You feel their passion because of the emphasis conveyed within the harmonies. There was something special about those days.

Best Real Rock Mix | Reggae Lover Podcast – Episode 68

The best real rock riddim mix you ever heard?

HIGHLANDA SOUND #Reggae 68 - Reggae Lover Podcast - Real Rock Mix In playlist: THE REGGAE LOVER PODCAST

Take a listen. The Crown Prince of Reggae, Dennis Emmanuel Brown kicks off the mix and closes it out with the same song in a different style. The Real Rock Riddim is the most versioned reggae Riddim and the most sampled reggae instrumental in history.

The original was played in 1967 by one of Coxsone Dodd’s session bands at Studio One, the Sound Dimension band. Ever since then it’s been a foundation instrumental for dancehall and reggae. The real rock is just a part of Reggae music that is never going to stop. You are going to hear that beat in movies, on your radio, on your mix tapes, and in your parties. I kept the mix short and spicy so it doesn’t get boring.

If you love reggae music and have been listening from back in the days, then this should be nostalgic for you. This is a dedication to you, REGGAE LOVER,

Shank I Sheck Riddim Mix | Reggae Lover by Highlanda Sound – Ep. 67

HIGHLANDA SOUND #Reggae 67 - Reggae Lover Podcast - Shank I Sheck Riddim Mix In playlist: THE REGGAE LOVER POD

The Shank I Sheck originally was a 1964/1965 Ska instrumental by Baba Brooks with production by King Edward on the Rio Records label. Rio is a subsidiary of Direct Records Ltd. and later Doctor Bird which like the other top Jamaican labels of the 1960’s had most of their releases distributed by Trojan Records. There have been hundreds of songs released on various versions of this instrumental over the decades with many top rated hits peaking in the 1980s and 1990s. The riddim track was a favorite for deejays and singers to perform over and a huge dub plate riddim for sound system selectors to record dub plates on as well.

MR VEGAS INSPIRES WITH LOVE YOURSELF

3

Top flight Reggae/Dancehall artiste Mr. Vegas, who is known for heart tugging compositions such as Do You Know (2006) and more recently Black and Proud, has once again affirmed his place in the Jamaican reggae scene with a new and provocative Reggae jam titled Love Yourself.

mvly2013-rs

This powerful song, co-produced by Mr. Vegas and Troy Mclean of First Name Music, was created while Vegas was vibing to a beat presented to him by Troy Mclean and addresses issues associated with true love, not love of money or vanity.

The track, laced over a true reggae beat, addresses issues of self worth and like Black and Proud, seeks to inspire fans to build their self confidence and self worth. With lines like, ” Yuh cah find true love if yuh a run down wealth Some Nuh want Nuh love dem want physiological help.”  Mr. Vegas connects with current issues and concerns within the society.

According to Mr. Vegas, “The song is telling everyone to love themselves before anyone else….have self respect and appreciate life. Love Yourself was written when I just was holding a vibe and thinking about what people go through to reach stardom… the song is on the Selection Riddim and artistes such as Capleton, Christopher Martin and Sizzla have voiced on it.”

mv-music-logo

He has already started preparations to shoot the video for Love Yourself and his latest single Give It To Har.

Mr. Vegas promises fans that the video for Love Yourself will be innovative and will seek, like the song, to inspire change, “This song is very important to me as it addresses issues that not only affect people in my field but also many people in society who struggle with their identity and self-worth. The song is meant to inspire and so will the video”

This summer Mr. Vegas will then hit the road again, adding Europe to his list of performances on a summer tour.
