BORN TO FLY Official COURTNEY JOHN Mixtape

>>>>BORN TO FLY Official COURTNEY JOHN Mixtape<<<< mixed by YAGA YAGA SOUND SYSTEM ************************************************************** Imagine that you're still living in the 60's, and you're listening to a good track of Jamaican music coming from two speakers just outside an alcohol store in Kingston. The notes from the piano, lightly caressed, are combined with the kalimba rhythm; a bass encompasses these sounds and, among them, a sweet voice singing of life and love, but yet giving you a hint of all the sorrow hidden behind its words. Well, that voice coming from a scratchy 45s could have easily been COURTNEY JOHN's, one of those artists who seem to be coming from a Jamaica now distant in time, a rare talent with a sensational feeling for singing. Courtney grew up under the wing of Beres Hammond, his uncle and pillar of the upbeat music, but he doesn't seem to be affected by this connection at all. Actually, since he didn't want to be a carbon copy of such a great example, he found his own style and he began to build his own place in the world of music quite early in his life. The singer, born in Annotto Bay, St Mary, in fact, wrote his first piece at age 12, walking then through the doors of music now wide open for him. Born To Fly is now just a little tribute fom YAGAYAGA to the great voice of this young artist, who despite his age has already recorded for some of the most important Jamaican labels such as: X-Terminator, Taxi and Fat Eyes, and is now ready to take flight, after the excellent feedback he received with his 2007's album, "Unselfish". 12 tracks, mixed by one of the most representative Roman sounds to introduce you and let you enjoy this voice that deserves all our attention and ears. Born to fly, COURTNEY JOHN official mixtape, mixed by #YAGAYAGASOUNDSYSTEM. Enjoy ************************************************************** ************************************************************** Immaginate di essere negli anni 60, di ascoltare un buon pezzo di musica jamaicana uscire fuori da due casse poste appena fuori un negozio di alcolici della Kingston di allora. I tasti del pianoforte appena sfiorati accomoagnati dal ritmo della kalimba, il basso che abbraccia tutti questi suoni tra i quali spicca una voce dolce che canta la vita, l'amore, ma che tra la sue parole nasconde sofferenza. Quella voce proveniente da un 45 giri gracchiante sarebbe potuta tranquillamente essere quella di COURTNEY JOHN. Uno di quegli artisti che sembrano provenire da una Jamaica ormai lontana nel tempo, un talento raro ed un feeling sensazionale per il canto. Courtney è cresciuto sotto l'ombra dello zio Beres Hammond, un pilastro della musica in levare, ma di questa connessione non sembra minimamente risentirne. Senza voler risultare una copia carbone di un grande esempio ha trovato il suo stile ed ha cominciando a ritagliarsi il suo spazio nel mondo della musica, arte che ha aperto le sue porte al cantante nato ad Annotto Bay, St Mary già a 12 anni, età in cui scrisse il suo primo pezzo. Born To Fly è quindi il piccolo tributo di YAGA YAGA alla grande voce di questo giovane artista che nonostante l'età ha gia registrato per alcune delle etichette Jamaicane più importanti come: X-Terminator, Taxi e Fat Eyes, e che ora è pronto a spiccare il volo dopo l'ottimo riscontro ottenuto dal suo album uscito nel 2007, "Unselfish". 12 tracce mixate da uno dei sound romani più rappresentativi per farvi gustare o scoprire una voce che merita la nostra attenzione ed il nostro orecchio.
