Raver Reviews: ‘Revelation Time’ by Million Stylez

Revelation Time, the new album from Million Stylez, is a righteous return to the roots for the Swedish dancehall artist.  It is an exceptional album featuring a whole heap of top notch productions and guest appearances from the likes of Peetah Morgan, Lutan Fyah, and Bounty Killa.

The title track features Stylez and a game Lutan Fyah over Dub Akom’s Way Back riddim.  The tune is a firebrand roots and culture anthem and one of the best singles of 2014.  Stylez and Mr. Williamz take it to the dance over Dreadsquad’s Modern Time riddim on “Can’t Stop the Youths,” a dancehall throwback with a sound as gully as Gussie P in ’89.  It is never a mistake to include Peetah Morgan on a track and Stylez obliges on “Never Conquer I.”  Morgan’s signature vocal gives gravity to the tune and the set continues building on the strength of the track.

Revelation Time is an album which brilliantly showcases the the many sounds of reggae from roots to dancehall to lovers, rockers, drum and bass, and dubstep.  “Equal Rights and Justice” featuring Bounty Killer is a testament to the global influence of reggae as it’s sound is a fusion of dubstep, EDM, and grime.

Million Stylez has been gaining in popularity since his strong showing at 2005’s Irie FM/Red Stripe Big Break talent competition.  Revelation Time is proof once again that “reggae gone foreign.”  For all the dismissive op-eds, gasfaces, and vexed bloggers, the fact still remains that reggae is being significantly influenced and elevated by talented artists from all over the world.  Revelation Time is as solid as any reggae album released in 2015.  This is a good thing.  In fact, it is a great thing and something every reggae fan should celebrate.
