Today’s song is Why? by British/Senegal reggae artist ADRIEN BASS. The single is coming from his album, Assaults.
Whilst growing up in the Caribbean, this music enthusiast learned to play the banjo, but did not fully exploit his musical talents until he moved to England. He started off as a DJ in Yorkshire and went on to play in a reggae band in London and developed a taste for jazz. To expand his desire for the genre, the true rastaman studied jazz music at college, where he rustled up some talented musician…and the band ABASS was born. Having back-to-back gigs across London, the band quickly gained respect from the underground Jazz scene.
Now armed with his unique infusion of reggae and jazz, ADRIEN BASS took his music career to the next level and started a record label called Organic Jazz Records, based in Senegal and is now working with some of the biggest producers and upcoming musicians in the country and London.
So there you have it! Take time out and listen to Why? This song features that typical classic reggae/lovers rock chill out groove coupled with though provoking and truth-be-told lyrics.
If you’re digging this track, play a visit to his Soundcloud page where there’s a catalogue of his mind-blowing tracks. Once you get there, listen to The Eyes Never Tell a Lie and Dub of Visions for the full reggae/jazz experience. Heart-meltingly beautiful!
