American Reggae singer Brad “Last Disciple” Brandt is set to release a brand new track titled Babylon.
Having lost someone close to him at the hands of the police, he was compelled to turn the pain into music and decided to write a song about it.
“The lyrics are about the wrongs that are happening in the world. It talks about the police brutality that is happening in the streets,” the artiste explained of the track.
Set to be released this week, the music video for the track will be premiered on Hype TV on Thursday. The visual is meant to promote current events, depicting issues that are affecting the world today.
The singer is in Jamaica for a week to film the music video for another one of his tracks, Morning Dew. The shoot will take place in the Blue Mountains. The song, which was recorded at Mixing Lab, was recording using live music with uprising roots featuring musicians Bubbla on the keys, Bo Peep on guitar, Kush on drums and Pottarice on bass.
His previous releases include Universal Love, Rastafari Is Love, featuring Reggae artiste Aza Lineage, as well as Mama Africa. The latter, which was released in February 2018, is accompanied by a compelling music video that features scenes across Jamaica, supported by Rastafarian symbols.
The recording artiste was drawn by the Reggae culture and was inspired to pursue music himself. His stage name was inspired by his lessons with one of his teachers.
“I had a teacher, an old Chinese man that I trained with and I was his ‘Last Disciple’,” he explained.
Last Disciple is not only a singer; he is also a master of Tai Chi/ Chi Gong. As a result, he will be hosting classes during his time in Jamaica in an effort to spread more awareness of the art.
