EP Review; Device The EP
Device the EP is a soulful reggae album that epitomises how real authentic reggae music should sound. With a variety of unique styles and abundance of excellent production and musical talent.
Jah Device has a powerful voice which overflows with emotion and truth.Rebirth starts the EP with a bang, with rifts reminiscent of MajekFashek back in the early 90s.
Next up is Black People (why) which gives that rootsy vibe, showcasing Jah Device’s vocal abilities with a rhythm track that compliments his laid back style.
The third track of the EP Give Praisesmakes good use of the “Blind To You” Rhythm made popular by Collie Buddz in 2007. Arguably a contender for the best track on the EP.
Enough Is Enough is a solid inclusion with a rhythm track which is subtle but effective laced with a groove that can get you bopping your head and tapping your feet.
I love the message on the next track Never Let You Down showing Jah Device’s faith in the most high. Overflowing with kindness and good energy, the kind of song you start the day with.
Then comes in Wok Nimoshis Mot(Have Mercy)with a powerful rhythm track, sung in his native tongue (Berom from Jos, Plateau State in Nigeria).
The song captures the real essence of Africa and gives you a real insight to what Jah Device is all about.
A personal favourite comes up next Smile For Mewhich makes good use of Jetstar’s version of the Columbus Rhythm originally made popular by Burning Spear back in the day.
Exquisite tunes on this EP, each possessing its own unique expression of talent which I truly endorse.
Also a popular DJ in South Africa known as Khaya said “Music ….the universal language transcending all boundaries. Listening t music from my distant relative from Nigeria in Jos Plateau…Jah Device Vincent. Live up brethren and all the best.
