About this item

Ark Angel Jah Mel is a recording artist, songwriter and musician from Jamaica. Beginning his career as a performer on the stage shows of the Twelve Tribes Of Israel of which he has been a member since his youth, Jah Mel made his debut sharing the stage with artists such as Dennis Brown, Bob Marley, Freddie McGregor, Sugar Minott, Brigadier Jerry & Denroy Morgan. His writing credits include songs written for Marcia Griffiths, Cecile, DaVille, Itana & Jah Mali for whom he also produced tracks on his debut album « El Shaddai ». Jah Mel has worked with all of Jamaica’s top producers & Musician in Jamaica such as the great Sly & Robbie, Steely & Cleevie, Earl Chinna Smith, Steve ‘Lenky’ Marsden & Donovan Germaine to who’s Penthouse label Jahmel was signed.

Jah Mel sees himself as a musical bridge between the original reggae sound & the dancehall sound of today, representing what he calls the real dancehall revolution, merging the spirituality of the old school & the energy of the new school. « Guiding Star » and « Stand Up To It » are the perfect exemples to overstand this definition. Both song were produced by Roydale Anderson aka Andy's. « Guding Star » will definitly give you thrills if you are into deep synth and heavy digital rhythm while the superb piano notes will warm you in the analog style. Beware of « Guiding Star » dub version called « Guidance (Dance Mix) » that will break any bunker. « Stand Up To It » rhythm is an adaptation of one of the most classic jamaican riddim called « Heavenless ». You will never know this riddim like before, This version takes the riddim to another level. A positiv song with a bionic nuclear bomb dubwise. Play it loud, Jah is our guiding star !
