Black Roots’ Ghetto Feel

Get a feel for their new album on Soulbeats Records.

Sampler

black rootsIn 2011 Bristol's biggest cultural reggae band Black Roots reawakened from dormancy.

2012 saw them issue On The Ground, their critically acclaimed comeback album on Sugarshack Records - with a dub companion arriving the following year.

In a United Reggae interview, the group announced they would no longer be licensing their music through Sugar Shack. And sure enough, Black Roots second post-reformation vocal set Ghetto Feel is due for release via France’s Soulbeats Records.

Like On The Ground, Ghetto Feel is co-produced by Jeff Spencer and mixed by Louis Beckett. It's a trimmer affair than its predecessor - comprising just 12 tracks this time.

But Black Roots aren't known for switching up their style - so you can expect more hard-hitting no-nonsense Rastafarian reggae and further criticism of David Cameron's coalition government.

Ghetto Feel is out September 23rd on CD, vinyl and download.
