Revival, Resurgence and Revitalization, all depictions used of late to describe reggae music and the new wave of young consciousness-raising, spiritually awaken artist evoking a golden era when Bob Marley sang of oppression. Possessing a distinctively smooth, mellow voice paired with conscious and prolific lyrics, reggae artist Dre Island music has laid out his solid stance at the forefront of the roots and culture movement. His socially-conscious messages have prompted his meteoric rise.
On Dre Island’s latest released “M16” off the upcoming debut Project Now I Rise, coined “Trapment genre by E5 Records executive Mini, the artist uses his voice and music to answer an ongoing call as a musical messenger for the destruction of the unjust ‘Babylon’ system. The lead single graphically compares the potency, power and impact of the artist lyrics to that of an ‘M16 rifle. With a creative and serious play on words Dre Island “rings the alarm” calling out the “champions” and the “youths” to wise up and dismantle the existing system that has them under pressure and suffering. Inspiring the youths to realize their true potential with “Lyrics Like An M16”, Dre Island M16 is available in all major online stores such as iTunes distributed by #21stHapilosDigital.
