Based in Kingston, Jamaica, artist Siilk Legend brings an authentic brand of reggae on recordings that are dense with the music’s trademark sounds while being careful to grace it all with a modern edge. “Dash Weh” is his most commercially appealing song and, not surprisingly, it most closely follows the classic reggae formula for a result that seems like a fairly catchy Ziggy Marley tune. The song has a solid stride and we love the yelps toward the end. We are a little less taken with “Real Rasta Man” and “Moon Light,” and feel that Siilk Legend’s obvious vocal strengths could be shown in a better light––be mixed more adeptly––to rise above arrangements that could give him more of an impact.
