After being exclusively given to Channel One Sound system as a dubplate a year ago, Don Fe’s “Jericho” has become an instant hit with many roots fans worldwide off and online.
Using a wicked combination of steel drums, electric beat and the rarely heard flute, this instrumental is a song for the collection. The opening is strong and the mellow vibe throughout definitely puts this tune in the charts for the summer. Not forgetting the big, deep bass that pulls the tune together and restricts the listeners breathing when played through the right sort of sound system!
This tune has been a constant closing song for Channel One Soundsystem at many of their major gigs and this has increases the popularity of this song. Never destined to get old “Jericho” is seemingly becoming a classic for all reggae enthusiasts and provides a chilled, but no less heavy beat and the flute solo throughout provides listeners with a new sound not normally heard in reggae tunes.
Set to be released early April through Steppas Records, “Jericho” is set up to become a massive sell out and crucial record for all reggae fans and collectors to own.
The overall song is repetitive and catchy and you will inevitably find yourself listening to it over and over again as the heavy bass line, flute solo, mellow steel drums along with the catchy electric beat have you coming back for more.
