Alborosie featuring Chronixx new video called Contradiction is an addictive and energetic roots reggae sound that brings to light many of the issues that are apparent in society today. Contradiction features or climate and manner ultimately reflecting everyday life, socially and politically.

Directed by Dameon Gayle, the socially conscious collaboration expertly conveys contradictory situations while two young boys that resemble Alborosie and Chronixx in their younger years travel through their city witnessing violence and crime committed by unexpected figures. In one scene, a father is seen reprimanding his daughter for wearing provocative clothing and in the next scene he is seen picking up a woman wearing a similar outfit.

Contradiction is the third single from the studio album, “Unbreakable: Alborosie Meets the Wailers United,” which was released June 29th of this past summer. Enlisting The Wailers United (former members of Bob Marley and The Wailers with the addition of Aston Barrett Jr.) for instrumental backing, the album upholds the tradition of roots- rock-reggae. The album has amassed over ten million streams worldwide to date.

The sound of Reggae is widely recognised because of its acoustically formed bass and drum downbeat, and its offbeat rhythm section. With such a diversity in style it is also considered complex enough to attract progressively minded musicians. A music that has a strong association with dance covering a variety of styles while also offering a background beat for those sharing Biblical chants of Zion. It is hard to ignore Reggae’s influence and how it interacts with our day-to-day lives. Shared as background music for films and advertising driving its heavy bass lines literally felt wherever rock and pop are played. Reggae has an affinity with mainstream British pop; recognised within the hip-hop culture and considered “cool” by those with no connection to Jamaica. As lovers of reggae my aim is to build a community of reggae followers that can share thoughts, news, events as listeners, artists, DJ’s and hosts.
