Tribal Seeds “Roots Party” EP (2017)

Tribal Seeds’ Roots Party EP is by far one of the finest reggae releases of 2017.  A showcase album of sorts, with both vocal and dub tracks, it is a refreshing reggae album that fires straight from the roots.  Included here are my two favorite tunes from the album “Roots Party” and “Aroma.”

From San Diego, California, award-winning reggae group Tribal Seeds have become known for their spiritually driven, refreshing rock vibe they have infused with the roots style of reggae music. Originally started by two brothers, Steven Rene Jacobo (lyrics, vocals, guitar) and Tony-Ray Jacobo (producer), Tribal Seeds now boasts six members, including: Victor Navarro (bass), Ryan Gonzo (guitar, vocals) & Luis Castillo (keyboards, vocals), Danny Lopilato (keybaord/vocals) & Jamey “Zeb” Dekofsky (drums).

Tribal Seeds’ debut, self-titled album “Tribal Seeds” was released in 2008 with their second album The Harvest following, June 2009. iTunes named both albums “Best Of” in the Reggae genre, for their respected years. Their debut album helped garner them the “Best World Music” title at the San Diego Music Awards in 2008, and The Harvest, which contained fourteen original songs, debuted at the number 5 spot on the Billboard Reggae Charts.

In 2011 Tribal Seeds gave listeners a brand new EP entitled Soundwaves which peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Reggae Charts. The band notes that the album was inspired by their life experiences, being on tour, and their desire to inspire youth to raise their voices and seek a higher consciousness.

On May 13, 2014 Tribal Seeds released their fourth album, Representing. The album debuted at number 1 on the Billboard Reggae Charts (114 Top Billboard 200) as well as the iTunes & Amazon charts. Representing contains 12 original recordings and features: Don Carlos (musician), Mykal Rose, Kyle McDonald (Slightly Stoopid), Vaughn Benjamin (Midnite), New Kingston, the band’s own, Maad T-Ray (AKA Tony-Ray) and lead guitarist Gonzo.

Tribal Seeds is currently working on their fifth full length album, scheduled to be released in early 2018.
