Listen To Vybz Kartel’s “Sumn Sumn”

The first single off Federation Sound’s Highland Riddim compilation.

August 05, 2015

Last year, Vybz Kartel was sentenced to life in prison. But last month, two previously-unheard songs hit the internet (date of recording unknown). And today, Federation Sound dropped “Sumn Sumn,” a Kartel tune that serves as the lead single from the forthcoming compilation, Highland Riddim. It’s typical fare from the dancehall singer, with bare, sinewy rhythm parts glued together by Kartel’s sticky vocals.

Look for Highland Riddim on August 21, read FADER’s feature on Kartel, and find out if dancehall is becoming mainstream again.
