Ras Myhrdak Prince of Fire Volume 1
- Words: David Katz
- Label: Minor 7 Flat 5
Over the last few years, Andreas "Brotherman" Christopherson's Minor 7 Flat 5 label has been home to some of the most noteworthy European releases by contemporary Jamaican vocalists. A big part of the picture is Brotherman's penchant for the melodic complexity that dancehall often lacks. Recorded in Jamaica with ace players such as Horsemouth Wallace, Bongo Herman, and Obeah, this disc showcases the talents of otherwise unknown singjay Ras Myhrdak, who is quite striking as a singer and occasionally anonymous in deejay mode. Nevertheless, Myhrdak keeps it conscious throughout, and his vocal flair makes this a promising debut.
