Righteous Excursion: Jesse Royal Meets Sly, Robbie and Chinna

Words by Jesse Serwer—

jesse-royal-sly-robbie-chinna

Jesse Royal is one of the key figures bringing reggae into the future, but he’s working closely with some of the music’s past giants to get there. For “Little Did They Know,” a track on Living HeART, the exceptional new compilation LP celebrating 25 years of XTerminator Records and the life of its late founder Philip “Fattis” Burrell (buy here), Jesse teamed with three of reggae’s greatest musicians: Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare, and Earl “Chinna” Smith.

We already were quite amped to hear what these legends were cooking up together—how could we not. But we didn’t imagine that the first leak would be something as massive as a collaboration with Jamaica’s favorite living singer, Beres Hammond, on the Sitting and Watching riddim made famous by Dennis Brown.
