LABEL: BURNING BUSHES MUSIC
RELEASE DATE: 6•2018
GUEST ARTIST: CAPLETON
REGGAE VIBE RATING: IIIIIIIIIIII (5.0)
Bushman has certainly made his name known in a very difficult industry to survive in for so long. Since his early days of working with great producers like Steely & Clevie, and the King Jammy’s and just breaking into the business this will be Bushman’s 8th album release. There were no singles released prior to the album being released so there was not much anticipation. Just like when he released “Call the hearse” Bushman has carried over that same strong fire burning energy in 2018 with “Conquering Lion”.
The thirteen track release kicks off with the title track “Conquering Lion” a heavy roots tune with some very high quality instrumentation. Track #2 “How you living” comes in very hard asking the question many should paying very close attention to. Special mention to the sweet horns on track. Track #4 “We mean it” features the Fireman Capleton on another very hardcore drum & bass, roots production.
For the fans of Bushman this release is another one to add to the catalog of Bushman Classics. For the ones who are just getting into Reggae Roots music this album should serve as a guide to how good Reggae, Roots, and Culture music should be made in these days.
