SOULMEDIC- Fyah Forward - Blazing vocals, powerfull riddims, and a call for conscious social upliftment are the core elements of Soulmedic’s new album- Fyah Forward
A modern reggae and dancehall classic capable of grounding roots reggae fans, moving the dancehall massive, and catching the ears of the hip hop, RnB and dance crowd alike, Fyah Forward is one to be stuck in the playlist for generations to come.
Building on the foundations laid by Reggae greats (Soulmedic’s mentors), Fyah Forward adds upon this with new lyrical styles and Soulmedic’s signature distinctive voice and melodic range. Combine that with hard hitting reggae production from G. Davis (OG Kush Riddim), Sage Brantley (“Jesus Walks” –Kanye West), Jah David (Zion High Records), Ishence and Iaahden (producers for Midnite), Simple (producer for Beyonce) and more- Fyah Forward is Soulmedic’s greatest work to date.
Here’s an album that fires forward the positive message of the music without compromising the production tastes and danceability of todays listener.
