Round 4: DANCEHALL
Hear me now.
For the Dancehall category,
there is only one track that could enter into the arena on my
Barrington Levy’s Under Me Sensi.
An Obvious Choice? Of course it is.
"hey natty dreadlocks, ah where you come from?
you must have two stick a sensi under your tam"
mi say "no officer, lord you must be mad,
mi only smoke cigarettes an strictly shag"
||Barrington Levy is an archetype for
Dancehall Style. Amongst my
all time favorite artists, Barrington Levy has the ability to touch every style of
Reggae. Coming in with Style & Fashion,
Under Me Sensi captures a street-wise irreverent Jamaican tone, and congers incredible images of hanging out at
Volcano during a run-in with the police. Backed by the flawless Roots Radics,
the rhythm on this dancehall anthem drives hard, with a monster
baseline that is pure fun.
Barrington's nod to
Volcano Sound and to legendary producer Henry "Junjo" Lawes
is worthy of mention. Lawes, Levy and The Radics
practically invented Dancehall in the early 1980's. With over a
11 albums together, Lawes produced the definitive Barrington collection of
albums and smash hit singles. Have a
Junjo's Discography/Hit factory.
