A sophisticated second album from Ras Mc Bean.

Sampler

Ras Mc BeanTen years have passed since Ras Mc Bean’s excellent debut album Pack Up & Leave, a set produced by Irie Ites and a set that included combinations with reggae royalties such as Anthony B and Morgan Heritage.

Inlightment is his second album and it has a somewhat different approach compared to the debut. It’s more mellow and soulful, and the versatile Ras Mc Bean’s sings more than deejays. Nothing wrong with that, but on Inlightment he could have showcased his distinctive talent even more. He definitely have the ability to spit lyrics in one verse and then suddenly shift to singing mode in the chorus.

This 13 track set was produced by Fireman Crew and mixed at Irievibrations studio in Vienna, Austria. In essence it’s contemporary and European one drop containing elements of both hip-hop and soul, as shown on cuts like Yesterday is Gone and Love Govern the Earth.

Among the highlights are the devout Calling, the up-tempo Ilements combination Steppin’ Out and the positive Love the Life You Live.

An easy-going, inspiring and elegant second album that has taken way too long in the making.
