Turbulence Do Good
- Words: Tomas Palermo
- Label: Minor 7 Flat 5
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
You might recognize his signature exclamation (bu-bloh!), but reggae sing-jay Turbulence is not as well-known as contemporaries Sizzla, Anthony B, or Capleton, even though he's released a dozen albums in half as many years. But creative productivity in reggae frequently means quality control goes out the door. Not the case on Do Good, as German producer Brotherman gathers Dean Frasier, Horsemouth Wallace, and other top-flight live musicians at Jamaica's Tuff Gong studio to guide this offering. Brotherman's rootsy one-drop riddims match Turbulence's strong, arcing timbre like a colorful bobo turban. It's good reggae done great!
