Binghi Ghost and Zojak World Wide are pleased to release Binghi Ghost’s new album, I’m From A Place, in true ‘VI’ style. Featuring catchy hooks, solid melodies and key overdubs, St. Croix’s Binghi Ghost creates a fresh musical flavor based on a VI roots vibe sharpened by the edge of Jamaican dancehall. I’m From A Place is available on I-Tunes and fine e-tailers everywhere. with of its musical breadth and artistic depth, Deftly alternating between Jamaican dancehall, VI roots and American Hip Hop, I’m From A Place will resonate with reggae and urban music fans of all types. The thumpy bass lines and poppy hooks have no downside. Brand new tracks, crossover joints, timeless dancehall and reggae vibes along with hype remixes and exceptional guest artists in Pressure, Turbulence, Lutan Fyah, Ras Attitude and Niyorah (among others!), I’m From A Place is leading the way with vision, energy and lyrics.
The opening tracks, “Respect For Life”, “Slow Wine” and “Wikid Drop A Ground” featuring VI’s own Pressure cut a deep lyrical tone that is never lost on the album. “Respect For Life” is an emotional plea for mutual respect and freedom from oppression while “Slow Wine” steers a cool and deadly direction. And if you respect the gun then you will respect “Wikid Drop A Ground’ for the lyrical bullets Binghi Ghost and special guest Pressure spit on a hype dancehall riddim. The lazy dub vibe on “Gone Astray” works with the help of Rankin Scroo and Abba Yahudda and Binghi Ghost’s combination with Turbulence are perfect examples of why reggae still matters. I’m From A Place offers a diverse musical mix of roots vibes on “Price Of War” featuring foundation VI artist Batch and “Noble Selassie” featuring Lutan Fyah, club grooves on “I’m From A Place” and a banging bass driven dancehall pleaser in “Live Clean”. Considering how the youths “giving up school to join the gang war” on “Good Morning” Binghi Ghost uses a poetic lyrical flow to slow down the pace which Ras Attitude and Binghi Ghost take to new levels on “Oh No”. “In H.I.M. I Stand Strong” presents his VI roots with seductive story telling and smooth roots grooves, a groove that maintains the vibe on “Raise your Hands”. “Queen And Empress” and “Youth Dem Inna Di Ghetto” add to the album an international feel and speaks to the global influence of music and culture. Binghi Ghost made the decision to be purposely vague about origins in the album title, I’m From A Place, because, as the album shows, its not where we live but how we live, that matters most. Appropriately, VI represents here with a special medley feat Batch, Army, Daga, Niyorah, Ras Attitude, Lady Mystic, Spla-i-jah, Pressure, Apostle, Jah Desta, Ras B.U.M.P.A., Inner Visions, and Eno. Indeed, I’m From A Place has a place for everyone. Come find yours!
