Reggae Singer Luciano, Greatest Hits Highlighted

4

luci

We salute a living legend, reggae singer Luciano who has released 21 studio albums over the course of a brilliant 22 year career. One of my favorite artists and live performers, Luciano gained prominence around the world during the “Rastafari renaissance” in dancehall that took place in the mid-late 1990s. He established himself as a name synonymous with roots reggae and became one the sub-genre’s pillars.

This 1 hour mix of 42 songs focuses heavily on Luciano’s material from Where There Is Life, and Messenger, which were albums produced by Phillip “Fattis” Burrell and his Xterminator label. His latest album,The Qabalah Man, was released on the 29th of November 2013. Please support this phenomenally talented artist by buying his music/merchandise and patronizing his live concerts. You will not be disappointed.

Jesse Royal – Little Did They Know (from XTM.Nation’s Living Heart Album)

Living Heart Artwork) sm

“The passing of 57 year old Phillip Fatis Burrell at a time of great nostalgia for his 1990s productions resulted in a huge outpouring of sadness and love for his music. Burrell’s Xterminator empire was a chief architect of the 90s roots revival that helped make Sizzla and Luciano’s names — while giving valuable grounding to next generation artists such as Chezidek and Lutan Fyah.

His son Kareem “Remus” Burrell’s reboot label XTM.Nation has been attracting attention for similarly distinctive rhythms that continue the tradition of clean-sounding,
intricate, eclectic live instrument based reggae. And to commemorate a quarter century of the parent imprint he has released this compilation of unreleased material
produced by his father, along with his own creations. The cover depicting Luciano, Sizzla, Beres HammondSly & Robbie, Dean Fraser and Earl Chinna Smith is illustrated by Original Jeremiyah and the heartfelt liner-notes are penned by writer and friend of Burrell, John Masouri.”

Spotlight: Get To Know Jesse Royal

1

When Jesse Royal was only a cub, the Lord revealed to his mother that she would have to release one of her sons to the world, proclaiming “he will be a psalmist, declaring righteousness and justice throughout creation.”

As Jesse matured into a young lion, his mother observed in him a strong sense of integrity and a natural ability to positively affect those around him. But it was his deep spirituality, passion for life and unique connection to music that would convince her that he was being molded to be used by the Creator.

Introducing Jesse Royal

Jesse David Leroi Grey, born April 29, 1989, enjoyed his early years in the hills of Maroon Town and the District of Orange in St. James before moving to Kingston in the late 90’s with his Mother and brother to join his Father.

As fate would have it, Royal developed a special relationship with Daniel ‘Bambaata’ Marley (son of Ziggy Marley) at school. This friendship with Daniel proved to be fuel to the fire as they both shared a deep passion for music and football; they naturally became brothers with different mothers, spending most of their childhoods together.

As these cubs became lions so grew the friendship and devotion to music. They began composing and creating their own music with the help of longtime friend Curt White and thus their musical journey began.

Conscious artist Jesse Royal

After Jesse returned home from schooling abroad, a relationship with high school friend and young producer Kareem ‘Remus’ Burrell (son of Philip ‘Fatis’ Burrell) reignited.  They began creating and composing music together also which developed into a Movement as they shared similar views on the social state of Jamaica.
Blessed with a voice that captures the pain and hunger of a ‘downtrodden’ people; Royal’s militant character and profound lyricism caught the heart of heralded reggae producer, Philip ‘Fatis’ Burrell. Fatis Burrell, affectionately called ‘Father’ had a great and pure impact on the ‘old soul’ of Jesse; as he credits him as an invaluable inspiration and one of the most influential individuals that he has ever encountered.
Jesse Royal recently released his debut mixtape, Misheni and is currently putting the final touches on his debut album with Kareem Burrell of the XTM.Nation.

Check out Jesse Royal on FacebookTwitter, and of course the Jesse Royal Website.  Stay tuned for much more on this young talented lyricist/performer.
