Livicated is fresh in style and will prove timeless as Rastafarian roots reggae music, currently and in the future.
Akae Beka's inimitable style, which blends incisive and biting social commentary with prayerful entreaties to better living through faith and good works. At the point of his untimely passing in 2019, he had released over 70 LP's. He is without a doubt one of the most prolific reggae artists ever known and his quantity is always matched with quality, with his albums consistently featuring in the top 10 on the billboard charts reggae LPs.
This release makes no exception. 5 years on from the original 2016 CD and Digital release which charted at number 6 in the reggae billboard charts, this timeless masterpiece is being re-released on 12" Vinyl and Cassette tape, courtesy of Before Zero Records.
The majestic Zion I Kings (ZIK) sound complimented with the voice and lyrics of Vaughn Benjamin, creates a finely woven tapestry of musical textures. The album is Akae Beka's debut release on the Zion High Productions (ZHP) label, which features solid original riddims composed and arranged by the ZIK family and musical contributions from friends.
We highly recommend this one for you, whether that be 12” Vinyl or Cassette Tape, as the solid production and fresh style will find itself fitting into almost any collection, fit for almost any occasion.
