Skari is a talented & versatile singer songwriter hailing from the rural hills of Manchester parish in central Jamaica. His fresh and & energetic style coupled with his poignant social commentary and culturally themed lyrics, represents a new generation of reggae artist that continue to fly the flag for the Islands 'conscious roots music'.

Producer Manasseh delivers a contemporary roots rub-a-dub styled riddim track equipped with sparse militant live drums, driving bassline & deep piano skanks, designed to rock any sound system session. Skari moves with ease across the rhythm track on 'Seven Times Rise'. His sweet soulful vocal delivery accelerates into a 'fast chat' 'sing-jay' style flow on the verses as he lays out his mystical and Rastafari inspired tale of life's trials & tribulations.

On 'Seven Times Dub' Manasseh's sophisticated production sound, subtle dubwise mix style & progressive approach, showcase his reputation as a true master of his craft. Stripping the rhythm track back to it's raw elements the drum and bass section take centre stage as each ingredient weaves into the mix before cascading away back though his echo chamber.
