Christos DC “Pressure” (Honest Music DC) 2017

Yet another blistering track from Christos DC’s brand new album Tessera.  This killer track features Christos on vocals, drums and percussion; Leslie “Blackseed” James Jr. on bass; Darryl “Trane” Burke on keys; Laurent “Tippy I” Alfred on organ; Herb Scott on sax; and Joseph Brotherton on trumpet.  There are several elements that jump out at me when I listen to this track.  First and foremost, the horns are extraordinary, especially the sax work by Herb Scott.  No one lays it as heavy on the horns as Christos DC.  It gives his music a warmth and authenticity that is lacking among many other modern roots artists.  The other standout element on this track is Laurent “Tippy I” Alfred’s mix, which brilliantly interweaves the many layers of this tune into one seamless soundscape.  Check this tune for yourself…

A protégé of the legendary Don Carlos, this artist/producer of Greek heritage has been a player in the industry since the early 1990s, producing and recording with the likes of Sly and Robbie, the Firehouse Crew, The Itals, Augustus Pablo, Sugar Minot and Don Carlos. He also has co-written and recorded with the world-famous Thievery Corporation. In addition to recording and producing music, Christos also runs one of the U.S.’s premiere music labels – Honest Music DC – releasing music and videos for artists like Kenyatta Hill (Culture), Puma (Thievery Corporation), and more.

As I state in my album review, Tessera is “one of the best modern roots reggae albums in fifteen years, occupying that rare air that so few reggae albums reach.  I’m talking Midnite Unpolished territory here.”  It is is a phenomenal set of roots reggae tracks that showcase the various talents of one of the most talented and significant reggae artists to emerge in the past two decades.
