Morgan Heritage as a group is one of the most recognisable to have come from Jamaica, with a string of hits and universal love for them in dancehalls all over the world, they truly are massive. This tune comes as a nice surprise, the first piece from the group in the last three years, it is dropping just before the group’s up-coming European tour and also signifies the release (sadly digital only for the vinyl heads) of a four track EP of the same name.
To my ears the tune is wicked and the sound is that classic Morgan Heritage vibe, it is produced by Shane Brown, who is responsible for loads of the production for Romain Virgo and Busy Signal to name a couple of artists. The track talks about ‘the return of roots and culture’ which is important in this turbulent time, the way that the different family members work together is just so slick and it really is reminiscent of a period a few years back when there was a good solid supply of heavy roots music coming from JA.
‘The Return’ is about how we need more consciousness and positivity and how lots of things are just fashion and throw away and not important but considered so. It talks about how a good song can be judged by the girls in the video rather than by the content of the actual piece of music.
I’m looking forward to hearing more from the group as we head into another year and I have been assured by the people at VP records that Morgan Heritage are the group to watch for 2013. The EP is released on the 28th of August and by the looks of it will be well worth a download, check the song to see what you think, I’m sure that you will all love it.
