Give Thanks for Life – Sgt. Remo

Jah Yutes Entertainment (JYE) releases Sgt Remo’s album Give Thanks for Life recorded at JYE studios. This album includes 13 brand new tracks featuring guest appearances by General Smiley, Mikey Wild, Don Goliath, and Jah Melik. The first Official Video from the album titled I’m Free was released on July 26. A second Official Video of the song Survival of the Fittest is scheduled to premiere on November, 2014. This album is the follow up to the highly successful EP Life is for Living which helped plant his name on the reggae music landscape. The album features production by long time Sgt Remo collaborator Pedro Hernandez from EA Productions (St. Petersburg, FL) and an array of producers from around the world. Sgt Remo is known for working with a diverse production team and this album is no exception with guest producers from Japan, Mexico, Spain, Chile, Peru, Jamaica, and the U.S.

“I’m Free” is a song about mental liberation and shedding the preconceived notions that often divides us as people, with Remo voicing the sentiment “Every man born free from bondage, every man born free from violence. Everyone wants to live their life well, so teach them good and don’t bad mind them.” The video for this single has received a strong response and continues to build an audience. One of the highlights of the album is the title track Give Thanks for Life urging the celebration of life’s blessings that are oftentimes taken for granted. Sgt Remo penned the song after experiencing his daughter’s battle with cancer which she triumphantly defeated. “Give thanks for life, give thanks for joy, give thanks for the opportunity to live my life.” He champions all women in this song acknowledging the hardships they experience as mothers, often being single parents. He states “give thanks for mama, set the rule and the order. Without a father, she is the mama and the dada.” The song was produced by Spain’s Rey JahB Estudio.

Other highlights in the album include the provocative Survival of the Fittest and Babylon is Burning. Survival of the Fittest is a highly energetic song voicing the frustrations of poor communities around the world rallying the people to “stand tall, all my warriors stand tall. Stand tall, make them know Jah we a call.” Another notable song is Make a Change, an inspirational collaboration featuring reggae dancehall pioneer General Smiley from the Michigan & Smiley duo. Smiley sings a captivating chorus while Sgt Remo delivers some rich vocals on this song about making a positive change in our lives. General Smiley is also featured inIt’s All Been Said. This roots reggae track was masterfully produced by Peru’s La Chakra Records. Remo gives praises to the elders reminding us about their extensive, but often forgotten, contributions singing “it’s all been said, it’s all been done. I man just here, trying to live like them.”

Sgt Remo teams up with Germany’s producer/artist Don Goliath and veteran Bermuda artist Mikey Wild on the roots step Call on Jah skirting the realms of electronic music.  Remo Rankin delivers a rapid delivery on the very danceable remake of the Ride Your Donkey riddim of the late 60’s, this one titled Donkey riddim produced by Mexico City’s TnT Music and Cuartito de a Jah. Sound System is a big up to the sound system culture which has been fundamental in Sgt Remo’s career. My Light and Salvation is a combination song with Japanese Rasta chanter Jah Melik. One Life to Live and Road of Corruption round off the album with some great instrumental versions produced by Josh Mundahl and Nigel Burrell (Firehouse Crew, Jamaica) and Mexico’s Dub Command respectively. Sgt Remo delivers some great vocals and lyrics on these two roots anthems.
