Jah Seal – Itopia

Jah Seal is a singer, producer, sound operator and member of the Digital Roots Movement with Tricky D, Aldubb and Supa DJ Dmitry. In 2008 he released the excellent ITOPIA which was recorded and produced in Berlin, Germany, as a 12" LP, and CD where 8 extra dub cuts were included along with an extended mix of the futuristic roots electronica of 'Jah Soldier' along with an 8-page booklet with lyrics.

The rest of the album moves between the modern roots of tracks like opener ‘Itopia’ and ‘Heart of the Forgiver’, through the rockers/steppers of 'International Criminal' to the easy accessibility of Calypso tinged 'Queen of Spring' and back again.

A very rhythmic album full of conscious lyrics, if you’re a fan of modern roots reggae and haven’t checked it out already you really should.
