Micah Shemaiah and Dreadites was recently interviewed by Ursula Munch (Munchy) on Reggaeville.com for the 40th episode of 'Wha gwaan Munchy'.. The interview focused on Micah's upcoming album Roots I Vision and the band's coming together.
The sound on 'Roots I Vision' is clearly inspired by that of eighties icons like Black Uhuru or Sly & Robbie; listen to title track 'Roots I Vision', 'Zion Trod' or 'Death Trap' and you'll no doubt agree. Everything was expertly mixed by Umberto Echo, resulting in an album with a track list - 8 vocal cuts and 3 mighty dubs - without disappointments for which you'll definitely need the repeat button. Top tracks: the aforementioned title song 'Roots I Vision' and instant anthem 'Boom Shakalak'.
Micah Shemaiah and the ark sound kicked off the first in the series of acoustic performers today (May 11 in honour of BobMarley on the day he transitioned and left us with his great message of love and unity. #undiluted #acousticbeginnings #original #legend #Rastaman
Finally! Few albums I've been looking forward to as much as this one – hearing the recently published Shalalak and subsequently meeting the artist for an interview in Kingston have left a lasting impression indeed. Micah Shemaiah is one of the most exciting new stars on Jamaica's Reggae sky, and the fact that he is in no hurry releasing his sonic babies only adds to the mystery surrounding his reclusive personality.
