Boiling Point: Pressure Buss Pipe Unleashes “The Sound”

You know when an artist is catching his stride, you feel it. Over the last few years we have seen that culmination of development in reggae through names like Konshens, Romain Virgo and Tarrus Riley. A compatriot from a different region of the Caribbean is now settling into his proper stride, too. Today, St. Thomas’ Pressure Buss Pipe releases his fourth album, The Sound, worldwide, with production from Zion I Kings, the esteemed roots stable of Tippy from I-Grade Records; Jah D from Miami, Florida’s Zion High Productions; and Andrew Moon Bain from Brooklyn’s Lustre Kings.

The melodic ballad “Rain” on Zion I Kings’ Songbird riddim and the new VI anthem “Virgin Islands Nice” were among the five tracks to give audiences a taste of what to expect ahead of the album, along with “Serious About It” and “Run Away,” tracks with high-quality roots production showing Pressure’s lyrical ability in fine form. The latest, “Show Love,” is a timeless reggae track, emblematic of the musical and personal growth Pressure has endured since bursting on the scene with his huge hit “Love & Affection.” With smooth chords and a Pablo-esque melodica solo supplied by Tippy I-Grade himself, the track (recorded at South Beach Studio, Aqua Sound Studio, and Big Yard Studio in Jamaica) is sure to be an instant favorite, while reminiscent of nothing we’ve heard before from Pressure.

Bunny Wailer’s gripes with Snoop Dogg/Snoop Lion and his representation of Rastafari culture have become a hot topic recently, even making gossip website TMZ. “Fire will bun fi him,” the site suggested—props on your patois, Harvey—if Snoop doesn’t make things right with Bunny and the Rastafari Millennium Council, which has also aired grievances with Snoop and his Vice-produced Reincarnated documentary—and asked him to stop calling himself “Lion.”
