From Treasure Isle to Ariwa, after many historical releases, the original DJ
U-Roy has re-united with the Ariwa production team to record and release a new studio album.
1991 saw U-Roys debut Ariwa recording album release True Born African. This was the record that re-ignited the original DJ's career after a 10 year lull.
Having kicked off his career on the legendary Treasure Isle label with 3 hits in the top ten in 1970 produced by Duke Reid, U-Roy went onto record and release the classic Version Galore D.J. Reggae LP.
U-Roy was an exciting new phenomenon. A phenomenon that started the talkers and rappers...the age of the M.C.s and D.J.s had begun within Reggae music which would see the likes of I-Roy, Dillinger, King Stitt rise up and command the microphone.
Talking Roots is the new broadcast from one of the Kings of D.J Reggae.
U-Roy broadcasts social commentary affairs on subjects featured on tracks like Repatriation with Donald Trump's immigration policy the subject of said track. U-Roy is like a BBC reporter, cleverly telling the news without agreeing or disagreeing. Bitter Nut explores the powers of the bitter cola nut, the original sexual health weapon from Africa! and Teacher Morris reflects on school boy romantic fantasy touching on some of the mid- 1970s glorious moments.
