Natural High Music Urban Roots II

Featuring an all-star cast of top-flight Jamaican talent, Urban Roots II is the sophomore album from Kingston-based production duo Natural High Music. Guests on the project, which combines techniques from reggae's Golden Era with electronic sounds and headnod-inducing ‘90s hip-hop beats, include Capleton, Jesse Royal, Wayne Marshall, Royal Blu, Kabaka Pyramid, Tessanne Chin, Keznamdi, Eesah, Indie Allen. The late “Crown Prince” of reggae, Dennis Brown, also makes a posthumous appearance alongside Jesse Royal on “Run Run Run” thanks to a decades-old unreleased vocal track located by the group. The title Urban Roots is a play on herb, as in ganja, and roots as in roots tonic, a popular herbal drink consumed as part of the Ital diet popularized by Jamaica’s Rastafari community.
