Singjay Volcano, a young much promising conscious artist hailing from St. Croix V.I., enters the international roots reggae arena with his first full length album entitled "Mo Fyah Chant". The amount of great budding talent -- players of instruments and artists alike -- emerging from the Virgin Islands in the past five years or so is astonishing and seemingly unstoppable. Most of these artists including Midnite, Army, Dezarie, and Sistah Joyce, truly deliver the deepest of the deep roots music in this time, and thus should get the recognition and appreciation they deserve from a far wider audience. Although the Ras L produced "Mo Fyah Chant" is his debut album, Volcano is hardly a newcomer to the roots reggae scene. He has been honing his mic chanting and song writing skills for several years in Atlanta and St. Croix, and already contributed tunes to a few compilation sets. Underpinned by heavyweight digital roots riddims with thumping bass-lines and hitting drums, Volcano delivers his message of Rastafari livity and truth & rights in a vocal style of his own. His ability to vary his vocal style and the fact that this 16 track set is full of great lyrics makes "Mo Fyah Chant" a decent collection of tunes, which keeps the listener involved from beginning to end. Best tracks are "Won", "Lyun", "Weak Hart", "Rastafari De Cure", "Reason" and "Virtue". All in all worthwhile checking out!
