  1. In his interview Scientist summed up the situation perfectly: these new acts all sound the same and have a small non organic sound.

      Scientist sums nothing up perfectly. He says that about anything and everything he didn’t produce. That is a pretty strong short list for one month into 2016. Besides G, not everyone can afford Sly and Robbie ; )

  2. 2016 has been nothing short of disappointing so far The Hempress Sativa mentioned above is solid but becomes the usual reggae roll call at the end of the song. Remixes running a muck as well from even the likes of Linval Thompson & Bulby York. The upcoming Dennis Brown Tribute sounds nice but again they are re-licks. Need some originality soon.

      You need to check on Christos DC and Honest Music

  3. Nothing to do with Sly & Robbie my friend. The new sound of reggae is a bit lightweight most of the time and for us old people whose ears and brains have been ravaged by heavy drum and bass sounds of the Radics, the Taxi Gang, the Revolutionaries, the Aggrovators, the Soul Syndicate, the various Studio One and Treasure Isle bands, it’s hard to get used to the current sounds… But it’s all good still if the songs are good and catchy and poppy.
