Ital, known as the brainchild behind the revered music website, Jamrock Vybz, has produced singles for some of reggae music’s most instrumental figures such as Sizzla Kalonji, Luciano, Perfect Giddimani and Lutan Fyah, among many others. Now, he is looking to showcase his lifelong passion for music through his own vocals with his first single, partly inspired by the much-publicized killing of Eric Garner, among other events that truly make us take into account how precious our live are and why we must not take for granted what the Most High has given us.
The right blend of vocals and instrumentals is noticeable throughout this track as Ital, who’s sound is inspired by the likes of Jacob ‘Killer’ Miller, Black Uhuru, Prince Alla and Tenor Saw, among others belts out thought-provoking lyrics to a beat filled with bits of powerful trumpet plays and a solid bassline. This song spreads a powerful message that we must ‘trample the beast,’ so ‘Babylon get defeat’ while reaffirming that ‘This Armagiddeon is a revolution, my people hold firm and strong.’”
This song showcases Ital’s undying love and reverence for His Imperial Majesty; making it relatable to those who share such a bond with the creator. It also puts into perspective what the priorities in life are and should be as we continue to trod on in times of uncertainty and injustice that plague our society daily.
Give Thanks and Praise is produced by Jamrock Vybz Records in collaboration with Ted Ganung’s Ted Dun Know Productions recording label. Ganung’s guitar, keys and bass can be heard throughout the hard-hitting beat on this track, while Atsushi Ouchi features on the saxophone and Matt Giella on the trumpet; with background vocals from Nikki Burt, who has worked with the likes of Tarrus Riley and Alborosie. The track was mastered at Mac Les Music Factory in Belgium.
It will be officially unveiled April 7 and will be available across all major digital music platforms. Music lovers will want to Give Thanks and Praise to H.I.M. once hearing this inspiration song first time.
