    • 2. Manasseh – Wrong Hands Dub

    Making his debut appearance on Roots Garden Skari is a versatile & talented young vocalist hailing from Mandeville in the central hills of Jamaica. His sweet vocal tones and singjay style deliver a heartfelt & militant message as he outlines the injustices of Jamaica's land tax and corrupted socio-political system….."the country down in the wrong hands, take it from them give who it belongs, ay people who unah charge yah man? A we pay them with tax taxation a we run this nation..."

    Producer Manasseh transforms the riddim track on 'Wrong Hands Dub' this time the drums and bass taking centre stage, his trademark sophisticated and subtle mixing skills creating a driving and upbeat dubwise version.
