Sophisticated sounds on Angela Hunte’s debut album R.A.W.

Angela Hunte - RAWBrooklyn-born and T&T-bred Grammy-award winning singer and songwriter Angela Hunte has finally put out her debut album after many years working more behind the scenes with producers such as Magnetic Man and Major Lazer’s Diplo.

And it was Diplo that recruited Angela Hunte for Snoop Dogg’s reggae alter ego Snoop Lion and the album Reincarnated. She was instrumental on that set and contributed as both singer and songwriter.

And it’s was a song writer and producer that she has had her greatest success to date. When she was homesick in London she wanted to write a song about her hometown New York. That day she co-wrote and co-produced a little song called Empire State of Mind with Jay-Z and Alicia Keys on vocals.

Angela Hunte has a broad sonic palette, but R.A.W. is all about melodic and crisp reggae with infectious choruses and catchy hooks. The slightly funky Here We Go is irresistible and so is the more up-tempo Outta My Head. Best of the bunch is however the bouncy and dynamic Rub Dub with Taranchyle and Brooklyn Rose delivering guest vocals. But Angela Hunte steals the show with her confident delivery. But don’t forget to check the last seconds of Rub DubBrooklyn Rose is sweeter than sugar.

She keeps it short and simple. Only eight tracks. Short and sweet.
