Marlon Asher and Anthony B have delivered something for the old-school reggae lovers. The song titled ‘Reggae Music’, is reminiscent of reggae of old which they used to drop on a regular once upon a time. With a similar name to Kabaka Pyramid’s recent jam, it’s like they want their take of reggae to also be considered and not forgotten.
The senior players from Jamaica and Trinidad still know how to deliver a reggae track and are showing no signs of losing their touch. The track was released from Marlon’s 3rd studio album ‘Rebirth’. The name of the album was inspired by long-time friend Anthony B as they both share the same drive to keep reggae music alive for as long as possible.
The Ganja Farmer known for his popular hit in 2006, with the same title, is also known as the Ganja Cowboy, was born and raised in Trinidad and Tobago. Hailing from Enterprise Chaguanas, Marlon Sobers has also had huge success with ‘Fit and Strong’, ‘Settle Down’ and ‘Mama Say’.
The 13 track album has a roots vibe, characteristic of Marlon, features collaborations with Anthony B, King David, Pressure Busspipe, Meluku, Izak King, Fluid Foundation and Slightly Stoopid. Another top pick on the album is ‘Through the Window’ which goes in depth in talking about ‘green magic’. In true fashion as his hit track ‘Ganja Farmer’, he glorifies the controversial herb. For him it’s not just about a feeling but more a way of life. He is quoted as saying, “It’s a way of life distinguished by the ready accessibility of happiness & love.”
For those of you who do indulge this album is definitely for you as it was made for you in mind. True reggae lovers should appreciate as well for it is a good listen. The reggae spirit is very much alive. Kudos to Anthony B and Marlon for keeping the fire burning.
