I hope you had a great weekend. I just wanted to give you an update on a few of the reggae acts I’m currently looking after, with a variety of new releases on the horizon.
Firstly, reggae giants Morgan Heritage are excited to release their new single ‘Perform and Done’ in the UK. The track is taken from their forthcoming album ‘Strictly Roots’, which is out in the UK on 15th June, and they have also called upon the expertise of BBC Radio 1/BBC 1Xtra’s Seani B to produce the compelling new single:
With guest appearances from the likes of dancehall phenomenon Shaggy, Bobby Lee of Grammy-nominated SOJA and fresh Jamaican reggae sensation Chronixx, ‘Strictly Roots’ is set to be one of the most influential reggae albums this summer.

Continuing on the reggae theme, Easy Star Records present the brand new album from The Expanders, ‘Hustling Culture’. The album is set for release on 15th June, and is showcases a plethora of reggae’s classic sounds, with exquisite three-part harmonies and classic roots-based lyrics a key ingredient. From the label that brought you The Skints’ hit album ‘FM’, Easy Star Records have pulled another rabbit out of the hat with this thumping new release.
