3. Samory-I, Black Gold

Samory I - Black Gold

Black Gold, the debut album from Jamaican singer Samory-I, is a full-length collaboration with acclaimed selector and producer Rory StoneLoveโ€™s Black Dub Music. The pairโ€™s musical relationship began after Samory-I auditioned for Rory performing โ€œTake Me Oh Jahโ€, which gained him his earliest international exposure when it was released in 2015. The album, which includes no features, is a celebration of blackness, exploring topics including freedom, love and worship. It is the product of years worth of work, and a regime implemented by Rory that not only included daily rehearsals but also jogging. โ€œRasta Nuh Gangstaโ€, โ€œNot Becauseโ€ and โ€œBlack Goldโ€ shine through when listening. Black Gold is modern roots reggae in its rawest most undiluted form, and a must listen for purists of the genre. โ€”ย Gibbo
