Overview

The latest from German reggae producer Andreas "Brotherman" Christophersen is a nicely conceptualized three-way combination featuring three of reggae's hottest 21st century talents: singjay Junior Kelly and DJs Capleton and Bounty Killer, whose styles have run the gamut collectively from the deepest slackness to the most exalted roots-and-culture preaching. Their voices cover quite a range as well, from Kelly's reedy tenor to Bounty Killer's gruff rockstone delivery. Then there are the rhythms themselves, which Christophersen has thoughtfully selected to bring out the best in each vocalist; on "Straight A (Remix)," Bounty Killer grunts with nimbleness and authority over a dark and powerful dancehall rhythm, but on "West Indies" the backing track is all live musicians churning out a rootswise, horn-driven groove that spurs Bounty Killer on to even greater heights. A similar instrumental setting elicits a sweetly crooning love lyric from Junior Kelly on "All I Do," while Capleton's "Escape" bubbles over a spare and funky electronic beat. Most surprising of all is the jittery jungle rhythm that fuels Bounty Killer's "Hey Yo Yallo" (and provides welcome musical interest when the lyrics get banal and repetitive). Nice stuff.
