Do You Know?

A 2 track roots reggae single (6m 52s) — released July 23rd 2021 on Before Zero Records

Majical is a revolutionary wordsmith, undefinable by genre. An MC and a Rastaman that's journeyed through garage, grime, hiphop and reggae to arrive at his own destination he's coined as 'roots hop culture'.

'Do You Know' started out as a dubplate on the 'King of Grime' instrumental by producer Lewi B. Inspired by the title of the beat, Majical penned this song to exalt the many earthy achievements for the King of all Kings, Emperor Haile Selassie I. On hearing this version, Kibir La Amlak approached Majical to make a new version of the track together, that brought it into the world of UK Reggae Sound System he hails from. The final result is a genre bending testament to modern RasTafari music. It is heavily influenced and dominated by the weight and grove of a hard hitting, drum and bass line, but laced lyrically like a UK grime track, mixed and dubbed hard and heavy in the Kibir La Amlak studio.

No other day could be more fitting for this release than the anniversary of Haile Selassie's birth 23rd July. Due for release on all leading digital and streaming platforms, and a limited edition run of poly-vinyl, followed by a full vinyl run in September.

Heavy UK bars meet a dub maestro at the boards! Big Tune! And one that naturally fits my Capital Xtra Reggae Recipe show, H.I.M! ???? - Ras Kwame Capital Xtra

There's nothing I don't love about this tune. The production, mixdown, lyrical content & flow are all excellent. To say this is pure fire would be an understatement. Very important song, more please. - Keith Lawrence Mi Soul Radio
