Juno Records: Colonel Faat aka Rocky Dawuni is one of Ghana’s few reggae artists to have made a name for themselves since the 90s. He is particularly hard to come by these days, but Austria’s Agogo imprint clearly know how to get their links form around the globe, and this new tune is a peaceful ballad for purely positive vibes. “Balantije” is one of those tunes you can slap on in just about any scenario, spreading love and good will wherever and whenever, guided by a subtle ska off-beat; Mankoora’s remix takes it to more danceable territories, adding in a layer of percussion and just the right amount of funk. Yes.
