King Jammy Presents ‘Dennis Brown Tracks Of Life’ Featuring Jesse Royal, Dre Island, JR. Gong & Others

King Jammy DBKing Jammy Presents: Dennis Brown Tracks of Life, out September 14th on VP / Greensleeves Records, brings contemporary voices to build on the work of two reggae icons – Dennis Brown and King Jammy. The album is a 21st century testament to the enduring power of reggae and dancehall across generations. Producer King Jammy is celebrated as a transitional figure in music production, who, after helping define mixing and studio engineering in the late 70s, utterly reshaped the Jamaican musical landscape in 1985 with Wayne Smith’s “Under Mi Sleng Teng,” the first digital mega hit the genre had experienced.

Dennis Brown Tracks of Life draws largely on studio recordings that Jammy produced for the late reggae superstar Dennis Emmanuel Brown in 1984-1985, which would become the Greensleeves LP Slow Down.

Dennis Brown was the most popular singer in reggae at the time of the original recordings, and King Jammy found him in prime form, recording what would become enduring tracks “It’s Magic,” “Live and Love,” and “Joy In The Morning.” For Tracks of Life, King Jammy went back to the Slow Down master tapes (and several from other projects) and brought veteran and new generation reggae and dancehall stars to the studio to write and sing new lyrics in combination with Dennis Brown. Artists on the project include Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Alborosie, Busy Signal, Bounty Killer & Dawn Penn, Protoje, Romain Virgo, Agent Sasco, Josey Wales,and newcomers Aza Lineage, Jesse Royal, and Projexx, among others.

The vinyl release includes an LP packaged with a 7-inch 45 single of “Can’t Keep” by Damian ‘Jr. Gong’ Marley, an update of Dennis Brown’s “Can’t Keep A Good Man Down.”

King Jammy will celebrate his release with a free performance at the final 2018 edition of Coney Island Reggae On The Boardwalk on Sunday, September 9, 2018 at 3 p.m., on the Coney Island Boardwalk at West 20th Street, Brooklyn, NYC. The Brooklyn Arts Council and VP Records are sponsors of the event.

Dennis Brown Tracks Of Life is available globally on CD, vinyl, and all digital streaming platforms from VP / Greensleeves Records on September 14, 2018.
