9. Chronixx “Capture Land”

Lord America ah capture land! Di whole a Jamaica a capture land! Chronixx makes a bold declaration aboutย freedom, slavery and civil rights on the looming dubwise track “Capture Land.” The tuneย was one of several singles from Dread And Terrible, the groundbreaking EP that spawned a world tour with international appearances across North America, Europe, and the latest stop in Australia and New Sealand! (These also included “Spirulina,” “Rastaman Wheel Out” and, of course, his biggest hit to date “Here Comes Trouble,” a top finisher on our 2013 reggae list). For us, one of the biggest highlights of the year cameย when Chronixx and Zinc Fence Redemption performed โ€œCapture Landโ€ย for over 10,000 admirers (including rock icon Mick Jagger)ย at our own packed-out free concert (pictured above in the opening page of this post) in Central Park in July. โ€”Lady Laleebella
