Amsterdam based reggae production house and sound system Black Star will travel to Jamaica for the release of their latest album. The collection will offer 20 takes on Asher-E’s beloved Babylon Burning riddim.
The release party will be hosted in Kingston (Jamaica), at Sugar Minott’s Youthman Promotion Studios on the evening of Friday the 31st. The album’s producer and melodica performer Asher-E, alongside many of the album’s artists, will attend the party to perform their personal versions on stage. The line-up includes the likes of King Kong, Prince Allah, Mark Wonder, Kazam Davis, Jah Thunder, Blae Minott (son of Sugar Minott), Tampanae, Amanda Vibes and Colah Colah.
During the month of February (Reggae Month) music videos will be released at a pace of 3 a week. These brand new videos will contain lyrics and animated footage of the performing artists.
The foundation of the Babylon Burning riddim was laid some 30 years ago by Dutch reggae producer Asher-E and it became the origin of the fruitful cooperation between Black Star and Asher-E. Over the years many artists have interpreted the riddim in their own particular styles, yet only five iterations have appeared on albums before. These previously released versions have all been revisited, remixed and remastered and are incorporated on the new release, alongside fifteen never before heard tracks.
The international appeal of reggae music is again confirmed on this release with vocalists from Japan, the United Kingdom, the Virgin Islands, the Netherlands, Trinidad and Tobago, Ghana and of course Jamaica. Out of many, one riddim…
