Sizzla Kalonji’s Son Links With XTM Nation & Keeps The Fire Blazing
Asking the musical question “What to make of this world,” Meleku, the son of Sizzla Kalonji, steps forward on his own quest for wisdom, knowledge and overstanding. Continuing a multi-generational collaboration, Meleku has linked up with Kareem “Remus” Burrell, son of legendary producer Philip “Fatis” Burrell, the man who first championed a young Sizzla (born Miguel Collins) on the mighty Xterminator label. Just as Remus keeps carrying his father’s works forward with his new XTM Nation imprint, likewise Meleku is keeping his father’s lyrical fire blazing. Audio & Video After The Jump…
In keeping with Remus’ usual standards, the rhythm track features such top Jamaican session musicians as Danny “Firehouse” Dennis on bass, Chinna on guitar and Carol “Bowie” McLaughlin on keyboards. Meleku’s vocals are reminiscent of early Sizzla, as heard on his 1995 debut album Burning Up, before he had emerged as one the greatest artists of his generation. What Meleku will do remains to be seen, but he appears to be trodding the right path.
