Reggae artist Naptali released his album called ‘Long Journey’ in march this year (2010). It’s been a while since I gave a heads-up on a new reggae album, and this one was good enough to motivate me. Overall, you can expect a very mellow one-drop filled ride on this one. Naptali has a smooth delivery and it’s laced over smooth bass-lines and that ‘new roots’ sound that many of us dig.
He kind of reminds me of Midnite, but not in the chanting sense, just that it’s such a relaxing sound and just generally laid back vibe. Maybe a mix between Midnite and Warrior King or something. There’s 14 tracks to experience on this and some guest artists as well (Luciano, Lutan Fyah, Arofat).
All in all, it’s an album worth checking out. Be sure to peep the track “Fire Burn” too. It’s one of the more hype tracks on there…a little more upbeat tempo.
