In an era where Drake uses Jamaican producers and dancehall riddims in his hit singles, the nostalgia and desire for classic reggae is more apparent than ever. Although those sharp drum kicks, the dubby echo, and that bouncing rhythm are appropriated by artists all the time, the sunshiney, feel good vibe of Bob Marley has still been missing. But Morgan Heritage has that roots tradition right in their name. The songs are rooted in the foundation of classic reggae, but they mix it up just enough with synthesizers and modern production tricks to avoid this from sounding like a fossil. Taking styles of hip-hop and borrowing from the genre that borrowed from them, reggaeton, Avrakedabra is arguably the happiest, most upbeat album of the year. Following their Grammy Award winning 2015 album, Strictly Roots , the new record is an incredibly eclectic mix. "Selah" is less roots based and full blown dub. From the distant, mechanical sounds of the drum to the drops of disco whistle sounds, it's a modern take on the classic Jamaican sound. The vocals are pure modern R&B with rich layers and harmonies that contrast perfectly with the mellow rhythm. "Reggae Nights" is pure joy and a testament to the power of music. Its instantly addictive melody kicks in with lyrics that are instructions on how to listen to this album. Let your body and inhibitions go and dance to this. The music will take you over and you'll soon forget all your problems. Avrakedabra is bound to get your blood pumping, your heart going, and your body moving.
