Mykal Rose takes a new musical direction on Showdown Inna Bloody Town.


Michael “Mykal” Rose has mashed down babylon for quite some time now, both as a solo artist and as a member of Black Uhuru. He has put out a number of smashes over the years, including dancehall favorite Shoot Out, the haunting Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner and the stomping World Is Africa.

Mykal Rose - Showdown Inna Bloody TownOn his brand new album 'Showdown Inna Bloody Town' recorded for Californian producer Siahvash Dowlatshahi – probably best known for producing Earl Zero’s 'Market Place' two years ago – Mykal Rose takes a new musical direction.

The eight track set, including four vocals and four remixes recorded with live instrumentation and Style Scott from Roots Radics on drums, has a distinct Ethiopian jazz flavor, especially album opener Gunfighter with its killer horns. Its funky instrumental version takes the Ethiopian spice blend one step further.

On Dutty Road Mykal Rose is back in his usual militant style and on an updated eerie version of Youth of Eglington he deals with violence and gun business in the U.S., especially in California.

Mykal Rose has been a leading light in reggae for almost four decades. He continues to be innovative and interesting and this set represents an artist that is still willing to experiment and try new musical styles and directions with an impressive result.

'Showdown Inna Bloody Town' is now available on digital platforms worldwide.
