This Monday Reggae Feeling

Under Mi Sensi by Barrington Levy

Barrington Levy released his first record aged just 13! He has barely stopped making music since. By the time he reached the grand old age of 16, he was already one of Jamaica's biggest stars. He toured the UK in the mid-80s and enjoyed commercial success with his singles Under Mi Sensi and Here I Come. His biggest UK hit came in 1990 as guest vocalist on Rebel MC's cracking single Tribal Base.

A breakthrough in the US eluded him though, at least until his 1998 album 'Living Dangerously' which featured Bounty Killer and Snoop Dogg. In recent years, he hasn't been so prolific but often collaborates with other artists. Earlier this year, he put out 'AcousticaLevy', an album of acoustic tracks, some new and some reworked oldies.

I've gone for Under Me Sensi from 1984. While it didn't chart in the UK at the time of release, it paved the way for his breakthrough album and single, both titled 'Here I Come'. A great track it is too.
