The massive first single from the label is the astounding Jah Mirikle’s Take A Look, which is being issued with three stinging remixes off the back of the original version. Reflecting the focus on quality and depth of the label, Take A Look pulls you in, and reminds you to check the world around you.
Mirikle does this through his huge talent and charming delivery, learned in St Lucia, and perfected in the UK. His lyrics speak nothing but truth, reflecting his culture and representing it to the world. A producer as well as a singer, Mirikle takes both roles on this release. Rich in roots, deep in strength and clear in purpose, Take A Look encourages everyone to examine who they are and what they do. The message is to spread love, and the groove is both immediate and rewarding. Take a step back, and take a look into Jah Mirikle’s world.
The remixes will knock everyone clean into next week. The Digid remix adds some tasty reverb pressure, with effects echoing around Mirikle’s strong voice, before bass takes over the place later on. Max Powa meanwhile, takes a haunting, eerie path around the track, emphasising the vibes and the direction of Jah Mirikle’s thoughts with a dubstep/bass background. Pure fire in the clubs, this one will see massive airplay. Lastly is the rolling thunder of Savage Rehab’s d&b take on the riddim. The drums launch you into space, and the rolling bassline brings you back to earth, but none of the message is lost.
Jah Mirikle is a name to watch out for, and Forward Ever are all set to take him to the masses. Get on board early with Take A Look!
