Description

Got to Live is a vintage-style, roots reality song, featuring veteran reggae vocal-ist Earl 16.

 

Earl started his recording career in 1975 as lead vocalist for the Flaming Phonics, a group he formed while still a schoolboy in Kingston, Jamaica.

 

Earl went on to record for Lee Perry, Augustus Pablo, Derrick Harriott, Joe Gibbs and Roy Cousins, before moving to the London in 1985. Here he worked with Mad Professor amongst others, but also stepped outside of reggae to work with Leftfield, who he still tours with.

 

‘top gear new British reggae from Soul Revivers’ 

David Rodigan, BBC Radio 1xtra

 

Soul Revivers' Nick Manasseh has recorded with Earl for thirty years now, while David Hill has known him for fifteen years – Sixteen being a regular crowd-pleasing guest at his long-running Rootikal dance in London.

 

Got to Live features Adrian McKenzie on the drum kit, with Jonah Dan on repeater drum and Spry on percussion. Add a three-part horns section and Manasseh's artful live-desk-mixdown, and this majestic tune is guaranteed to drop heavy.

 

The flip holds Living Version, a instrumental track that is less about the dubwise, but is built for MCs.

 

Entering 2021, it’s a good time to be reminded that we’ve all got to live.
