Jesse Royal – Major Lazer Presents: Royally Speaking Mixtape

By ticku, December 17, 2014

I’ve been listening to this mixtape on and off since the summer, and it’s definitely something that grows on you very quickly.  I’ve been a big fan of the Major Lazer project since I heard their single “Hold the Line” back in 2009.  YouTube suggested I listen to this mixtape after listening to some songs from the latest Major Lazer EP (Apocalypse Soon), and I was very glad it did.  While I had heard of Jesse Royal before hearing this mixtape, this was the first time I had listened to a body of his work so to speak.  The reason I’m posting about it now is that it was recently rated as the #1 reggae mixtape of 2014 by LargeUp.com and rightly so I believe.  On my blog, I normally highlight singles, because I don’t really have time to do long write ups for albums or mixtapes, but this achievement is worthy of sharing, so just do yourself a favour and listen to it!  Walshy Fire (of Major Lazer) was at the Protoje concert in Miami, so clearly he is a fan of the artists involved in the Reggae Revival, so who knows, maybe we will have a Protoje Mixtape in 2015 🙂
