“Roots in My Soul”, a new album by Ruff Selectors
“ROOTS IN MY SOUL”, A NEW ALBUM BY RUFF SELECTORS.
Ruff Selectors present their new album ‘Roots In My Soul’, the fourth of their career, available now for free download and the release also includes the video for single ‘Plant It’. The singer and producer Jungle King from the Ivory Coast joins the project led by African-American Teacher Mike to create the nine tracks co-produced by the Italian Princevibe and the Jamaican T.GO Entertainment.
Teacher Mike explains the concept of the album: “The goal is to promote positiveness in everyone’s life and, although it’s a tough task, this must start with ourselves. In this album, which speaks about real-life situations, human awareness, and my personal experiences, all the tracks are connected by a common thread.
The title track ‘Roots in My Soul’, speaks of my dream for peace, equality and harmony among men. This links on from the track ‘Colours’, which explains that there can be no equality without rights, but only oppression, hatred and racial discrimination, which leads us to ‘Ilegit Refugee’, a piece that transports us into a world scarred by immigration. But then ‘Radics’ speaks of karma, conscience and positivity, while ‘Plant It’ tells us we reap what we sow, although, as we know, in Babylon there are restrictions on this subject which is why I wrote ‘Ganja Theft’. This grass, if used with awareness, evokes positivity and respect. The biggest respect that a man owes to Jah and nature is ‘Woman Respect’, and this kind of respect fills us with ‘Emotions’. And in African culture, when you have all this, it’s time to take to the dancehall with the ‘DJ’.”
In order to spread “Roots In My Soul” far and wide, Ruff Selectors took the decision to release it as a free download only asking for a “Like” on their Facebook page in exchange. Go to this link bit.ly/RuffSelectors for your copy.
