Mosiah: Burning Red

Here comes Mosiah (Akeil Martin) from Trinidad with a political message in his new single Burning Red. It’s a dancehall-influenced song based upon the ‘Volcano’ rhythm together with a sampling of Barrington Levy and indeed it sounds as though it could have emerged in the 1980s rather than now – but that’s no bad thing. Drawing his inspiration, and indeed his name, from religion, from Rastafari and from Marcus Mosiah Garvey, this is a vital sound that should propel Mosiah beyond his familiar audiences to wider appreciation.
