John Brown’s Body’s “Future Roots” uses reggae as a foundation, but incorporates dub, drum and bass, and electro to create a sound both timeless and forward. Described by LA2DAY as “delivering the most forward-thinking reggae music in the world today” the 8-piece band’s killer live show has super heavy rhythms, a three piece horn section, air tight drum and bass and “the most gorgeous melodies in all of modern reggae music” [All Music Guide], all backed by a dubbed-out sound engineer.
However it’s defined, it’s got people buzzing about this progressive band from Boston and Ithaca, NY who’s latest album, Amplify, debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Reggae Chart.
