After their previous “Buff Baff Riddim” Real People Music presents a fresh, modern Reggae juggling for spring with an international cast of artists, that look at love from different perspectives.
Californian Jah Sun opens the selection with his deeply emotional and even autobiographic “Love Again”, before Kenyan vocalist extraordinaire Treesha presents her reckoning with a former friend, that she will “Never Be Cool” with because of betrayal. Those are just two opposite stories presented on the Princess Riddim.
Vyzadon from Trenchtown, Kingston tells of yet another. His single “Not Right Now” portrays a relationship on the verge of breaking up, destroyed by distrust and quarrelsomeness. Jamaican rising talent Jerone takes things a little lighter and cheers up the listeners with his easy flirting “Give Me A Minute”, while his sister Deondra promotes self-love and confidence with “I’ll Make It”. Million Stylez from Sweden eventually takes love to another level as he highlights his relationship to Jah and how His love changes lives in “How Would It Be”.
Musically composer and producer Alex “Drummie” Domhoever teamed up with extraordinary talents from Jamaica and Germany such as Aeion Hoillett on bass, Lamont Savory and Florian Münzer on guitar, and Frank Pollack on keys and organ to create this fresh, uptempo instrumental. Also, Franklyn “Bubbler” Waul, a prolific member of Black Uhuru, joined the project to contribute his skills on the piano. Together they manufactured a rich, melodious, multi-layered Reggae riddim with Pop elements and an uplifting vibe.
