More reggae and hip-hop on Naâman’s Rays of Resistance.

Sampler

Naâman - Rays of ResistanceYouthful French singjay Naâman is back with his second album Rays of Resistance and it’s a natural follow-up to his debut album Deep Rockers – Back A Yard released two years ago.

This new album is however slightly different compared to its predecessor, a set that offered a tasty mix of bouncy hip-hop and groove-oriented reggae. This new album is more mature and more diverse. It’s more soulful and some tunes lean slightly towards ambient electronic music.

Rays of Resistance is potent and explosive, as shown on tracks like Big and Bad and Pop Dem Bubble, but also slow and ethereal, as showcased on cuts like Those Rays and the melancholic Soom T combination My Days.

There are plenty of pulsating rhythms and infectious melodies, just listen to International Love with its sing-a-long chorus and catchy horns, Turns Me Loose, which opens as a slow acoustic jam but soon metamorphoses into bouncy reggae-flavoured hip-hop, or the dark Garden of Destiny with its lingering strings and Halloween harmonies.

Sure, Naâman sings in English and his pronunciation isn’t perfect, but this is nevertheless a strong second album showcasing a major talent.
