A who’s who of reggae on Sly & Robbie’s The Reggae Power 2.

Legendary rhythm duo Sly & Robbie have once again teamed up with Japanese trio Spicy Chocolate for another slice of Reggae Power. This time they present a line-up of artists that reads like a who’s who of reggae music.

The Reggae Power 2Sly & Robbie and Spicy Chocolate Present the Reggae Power 2 – slated for release on September 18 – features artists and groups like Morgan Heritage, Demarco, Shaggy, Maxi Priest, Cherine Anderson, TOK, Beenie Man, Richie Spice, Romain Virgo, No-Maddz and Skip Marley.

“Once we heard Skip’s record ‘Cry to Me’ we knew that we wanted to try and involve him in the album,” says Robbie Shakespeare in a press release adding:

“Young artists like No-Maddz, Romain (Virgo) and Skip are the future of our music, and it’s good when we can bring all them into such a project as this.”

The new album is a joint release from Sly & Robbie’s own Taxi Records and Tuff Gong International, the label once created by Bob Marley.

“Tuff Gong is pleased to be able to add this project to our roster of releases for this year. We look forward to working with Taxi and all of the artists involved to promote the album both in Jamaica and abroad. 2015 is shaping up to be a significant year for us as we celebrate our founder’s 70th birthday by partnering with some of Jamaica’s best and brightest talent. Between the launch of the ‘Master’s Vault’ series, distributing a new album from Teflon, our first-ever comedy album ‘Breadfruit Tree’, and now Taxi we are indeed demonstrating the power of reggae, Bob Marley’s vision for Tuff Gong, and the entire Jamaican music industry on a whole,” says Myshjua Allen, Executive Label Manager for Tuff Gong.

Spicy Chocolate, a popular musical trio based in Japan, is excited to be working with two of the biggest names in reggae.

“We are honored to collaborate with the legendary Sly & Robbie on The Reggae Power 2, which is a follow up to last year's Grammy-nominated first installment. With features from the likes of Beenie Man, Romain Virgo, and 3-time Grammy Award-winning, Latin fusion kings, Ozomatli, this album is ripe for success. It is only fitting that our label of choice is none other than Tuff Gong, home to Skip's grandfather and icon, Bob Marley,” says the Spicy Chocolate.
