German reggae label Oneness Records has scheduled the release for the album of Jamaican culture artist Naptali for fall 2009. The album by the title “Long Journey” will compile 14 tracks including collaborations with artists such as Lutan Fyah, Luciano and Sara Lugo.
Oneness Records, based in Munich, Germany, has brought you riddims such as the “Oneness Riddim” and the “General Key Riddim” featuring some of the best German and Jamaican reggae artists such as Nosliw, Jahcoustix, Luciano, Junior Kelly and Queen Ifrica. Another riddim, “Soul”, is the latest Oneness Records Production and Naptali’s song “Grandma” is featured on the riddim as well as on his forthcoming album.
Jamaican artist Naptali and the producers of Oneness Records met by chance in Germany when Naptali was visiting the country to see his cousin. Naptali heard the live riddims by the Oneness band and decided he really felt the vibe and energy. The mutual love for roots reggae music and a special connection between the artist and the band resulted in the idea of the album project and now in the upcoming release of this roots album “Long Journey”
The majority of tracks on the album are produced and recorded with a live band. Naptali’s unique voice adds the spice to create an outstanding and beautiful roots album.
