Katchafire drummer Jordan Bell is at the helm of “Circle Back”. Jordan is no stranger to stepping out from behind the kit and up to the mic with Katchafire – his past credits also include ‘Sweet As’, ‘One Stop Shop’, ‘Down With You’, ‘Love Today’, ‘Wasted In Love’, ‘One More Day’ and ‘Walk With Me’. JB said “It’s been a while! The brothers of the Fire cant wait to get out on the road again and play this new tune “Circle Back”, and some old favourites of course!”.

This will be first single from Katchafire since their 2018 ‘Legacy’ album, which hit No.1 on the US iTunes Reggae Chart and spent several weeks in the Top 5 of USA’s NACC World Charts & the Roots Music Report World Charts. ‘Legacy’ was the bands 5th studio album, which saw them nominated for Best Roots Artist & Best Maori Artist at the New Zealand Music Awards and Group Of The Year at the Island Music Awards in Hawaii, and ascend to the No.3 most streamed New Zealand artist on Spotify globally.

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.
