Artist & tune

  • Omar Perry - Can't Stop Us / Save The Earth
Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
Omar Perry is the son of the eccentric legendary artist/producer Lee "Scratch" Perry, however the music he makes would not provide you with any clues to this fact. The younger Perry, who resides in Belgium and can be compared with Jamaican artists like Lutan Fyah or Jah Mason, has shown that he's able to ride hardcore dancehall beats alongside yard style roots or UK style roots with equal ease.

This 7" vinyl release features two tunes taken from Omar Pery's sophomore album "Can't Stop Us", which was released by Makafresh in 2009. The single features two of that album's best tunes namely the wicked title track "Can't Stop Us" across a well done revitalized version of Glen Brown's awesome "Green Bay" riddim, and the matching cautionary track "Save The Earth", which rides a new version of the Max Romeo/Lee Perry classic "Chase The Devil" riddim.

Not to be missed by vinyl collectors of worthy modern roots releases.
