For over 50 years Black Uhuru has remained one of the most popular reggae bands from Jamaica. The living legends have earned several achievements in the music industry, including winning the first ever Grammy Award for reggae music. Their long success, along with having the highest reggae record sales after Bob Marley and the most songs sampled by other artist over the years, has allowed them to become ambassadors of reggae.
Their latest album, New Day, features the band’s iconic founder Duckie Simpson, back out front with his earthy, soulful baritone. The album captures Black Uhuru at their enduring best, passing the torch even as their flame continues to burn strong.
Black Uhuru was one of the first bands to seriously incorporate dub elements into their songs, with its undulating, up-front bass lines, and this single tips the hat to this approach. After spending five decades making music, Black Uhuru still manages to maintain their signature sound, keeping everything on tape, old-school.
