Downsound Records and Zojak World Wide are proud to make the Prophet Riddim available to the world on Itunes on Tuesday, May 5th. The mesmerizing one-drop riddim which is popping up on reggae and crossover charts all over world is enhanced by Downsound Records’ signature production quality and meaningful messages from Capleton, Sizzla, Prodigal Son, Harry Toddler, Anthony B, George Nooks and more. Solid guitar riffs, emotional backing-vocals and minimal yet attention-grabbing instrumentation and arrangements make it easy to predict great things for the Prophet Riddim.
Reprising the soulful vocal style that has set him apart from the dancehall pack, Capleton combines smart social commentary and artistic grace on “Head Above Water” to create a reggae vibe that most can only aspire to. Extraordinary efforts from Anthony B (“A Di Time Now”) and Sizzla (“Rise To The Top”) demonstrate a shared commitment to eloquence and attention to experience while “Guide My Feet” (George Nooks) and “Save Us” from the new gospel sensation, Prodigal Son, underline the powerful spiritual essence of the Prophet Riddim which is only added to by Natural Blacks (“Gi Dem Time”) and One Third (“Memories”). The simple ease with which the Prophet Riddim sets a catchy, grassroots reggae vibes is exemplified by D’Angel on “I’m So Ashamed” and “Pray Fi Dem” by Harry Toddler, whose reality lyrics performed over modern beats create a unique and special sound. Jimmy Riley, G Warren and Magma maintain the timeless and power of good music, great vibes and raw talent to complete the riddim. Emphasizing substance over swagger, the Prophet Riddim embodies the potential of reggae music at its very best with no strings attached.
