After the 2018 release of his 10-track album Fire & Light on his own label, the underrated but full-gifted artist Torch aka the Eva Burning Flame and his accordingly named Evaburninflame Recordings International are back with a brand new EP titled Phase 7. The latter features 7 reggae tunes with conscious lyrics, heavy rolling basslines, and real love vibrations.
Previous albums, like the aforementioned Fire & Light and the 2016 released Book Of Love, have shown that he can deliver well-written and well-performed songs and this EP is no exception. Whether it is roots offerings or songs that deal with the romantic side of life, Torch handles all of them in a convincing way. This also because he has the ability to adjust his vocal delivery to what the song requires.
The Phase 7 EP checks in at nearly half an hour of music and features some very impressive songs. At the head, literally and in terms of quality, is the killer roots piece Crucial which comes across a wicked relick of The Abyssinians’ Declaration Of Rights riddim. Another massive effort is the anti-violence tune Going To Hell. Destined To Win and Farmer Man, the latter on a relicked version of Carlton & His Shoes’ classic Love Me Forever riddim, are solid tracks worth hearing. The same goes for the appealing love songs Ask Me and The Convo.
In all, another release from Torch that deserves to be heard by any reggae fan who prefers quality above quantity.
