STRATEGY OF ROME Album
Ice Drop Records announces the release of the new Mykal Rose album Strategy of Rome on June 23.
Recorded primarily in Denmark on a week-long break from Mykal’s European tour last summer, STRATEGY OF ROME brings back the original Black Uhuru sound, with heavy drums and bass, smooth harmonies and catchy tunes you’ll find yourself singing hours after you listen. Expertly produced by Adil ‘Jahdil’ Nadri & Søeren ‘Pharfar’ Schou of Ice Drop Records, two of the most talented and innovative artists/ producers/ musicians out of Denmark, well known for their high professional standards in music, the album sparkles with crisp production values.
On the STRATEGY OF ROME you can feel the good vibes happening in the studio when topical songs and well rested vocals meet live instrumentation and excellent production on this 11 track album. It opens with Give a Thanks on the Cold Times Riddim, a blend of Rocksteady and Roots. The man is a certified crooner and this album proves no one can harmonize with Mykal better than Mykal himself. His vocal prowess is on display as he scales up, down and all around the melody lines on these thoughtful songs. His voice has never sounded stronger while at the same time, more sensitive, in his extremely long career. STRATEGY OF ROME follows Rasta State, released mid 2016 by Greensleeves Records and a compilation of previously released tracks on the Sons of Jamaica series by Jet Star Records earlier this year.
