Reggae Roast have teamed up with two of the reggae and dancehall scenes most prolific standout stars to drop new single ‘Do It Again’, set for release on April 17th via Trojan Reloaded, ahead of the release of their eagerly awaited debut album ‘Turn Up The Heat’
Featuring the legendary producer and MC Horseman whose credits include working with the industry’s biggest players such as Max Romeo, Little Roy and Prince Fatty Soundsystem. ‘Do It Again’ also features Natty Campbell, one of the UK’s most sought after new gen MC stars who brings a powerful sounding wave of modern grit to the track fresh from featuring on the latest Chase & Status album ‘Return 2 Jungle’.
As an award winning soundsystem collective Reggae Roast stands firmly in delivering fresh and innovative sounds to the reggae scene, their forthcoming debut ‘Turn Up The Heat’ due for release on May 22nd is equally playing a pioneering role in keeping the spirit and history of the music alive. ‘Do It Again’ exemplifies the skill and musical craftsmanship displayed by the duo in successfully fusing the new and old as the track samples the Trojan hit, ‘Longshot Kick de Bucket’ by The Pioneers.
Opening with the famous brass intro, which then develops into the well-known melody, the addition of the two MC’s each from different eras of reggae breathes new life to one of the biggest classics in the Trojan catalogue.
In an ode to its origins, the single was sent to reggae legend Jackie Robinson of The Pioneers ahead of its release to which his reply was “sounds like a hit, I love it”. Through the endorsement of the artists who have paved the way for Reggae Roast, Horseman and Natty Campbell as well as cohesively merging sounds from a plethora of reggae talent all of whom have shaped pivotal stages across the genres many musical eras is what makes the track and forthcoming album so culturally rich and diverse in its offering.
‘Do It Again’ is uniquely both new and classic, with its strong reggae roots blueprint in the form of the ‘Long Shot Kick De Bucket’ sample running through the track underpinned by Horseman and Natty Campbell’s instantly distinct bars and flow, the single feels familiar but equally sounds revolutionary all at the same time, a true reggae fusion designed to resonate with reggae lovers both new and old.
