Originally from Guyana, Blakkamoore quickly moved to Brooklyn where he was living in the hip-hop culture from his young age. With these various origins came the wish to mix sounds and cultures having now his own style between urban music and tropical reggae dancehall. He became a high value in the musical industry playing and working with artists like Major Lazer, DJ Premier or Snoop Dogg for who he wrote many tracks on the Snoop Lion album: “Reincarnated” nominated for the Grammy Awards in 2013.
On the new album “Upward Spiral”, Blakkamoore demonstrates how reggae and hip-hop are linked by their stories, origins and influences. We can enjoy his oiled and charismatic voice on reggae music or urban sonorities. When tempo goes faster Blakkamoore still feels comfortable and his flow keeps its fluidity. This new urban reggae album offers versatility and creativity from the talented Blakkamoore who sings toasts and raps so easily.
