Macka B aims to change the world with his new album.

Sampler

Macka B - Make A changeUK veteran artist Macka B is back with his first album in four years. His brand new set 'Change the World' is released via his own imprint Chileno Records and produced in tandem with reggae revivalist Chris Peckings and the more contemporary flavored Iron Fist Productions. Invited are also notable guest artists Luciano, Earl 16, David Hinds from Steel Pulse and Lloyd Brown.

Macka B has as usual put together accessible, thoughtful and meaningful lyrics to the 16 cuts. He deals with equality in the acoustic punk-influenced Postcode War, sustainability in Nuclear Energy “we don’t want no nuclear energy, nuclear power is the enemy”, medical marijuana in the clearly titled Medical Marijuana and Make a Claim, a clever take on slavery.

But Macka B also takes on lighter subjects. Never Played a 45 is an acclaimed vinyl love story on the 54-46 aka Boops riddim and in Reggae Daddy Macka B makes it perfectly clear that reggae is the cornerstone in several music genres developed in the UK – jungle, funky house, grime, dubstep and garage.

Even though Macka B usually described as an MC or singjay, on this set his delivery often leans more toward straight singing. And on contrary to many other singjays he sings with a nice pitch control.

'Change the World' may affect politicians, CEO’s and powerful decisions makers around the world, but it will most definitely change your record collection to the better.
