In 2018, King Kong and Irie Ites joined forces to release a reggae masterpiece that brought King Kong back to the forefront of reggae artists internationally. "Repatriation", a critically acclaimed album, features 12 original tracks and boasts a dream team of legendary musicians, including Roots Radics, Mafia & Fluxy, Sly & Robbie, Dwight Pinkney, Bongo Herman, Russ D and Naram. With its fusion of genres between Digital reggae and Rub A Dub, the album offers a nostalgic nod to the 80s while retaining a contemporary edge. King Kong, one of the pioneers of that era, shows the full extent of his musical prowess, making this a must-have album for reggae aficionados and lovers of the iconic Jamaican soundscape. What really sets "Repatriation" apart are the two prestigious collaborations that have left an indelible mark on the album's success. The first brings together Burro Banton and Pinchers on the timeless "Ram Dancehall" riddim, an original track by the late Bunny Wayler. The second brings together King Kong and Eek A Mouse on a Mafia & Fluxy instrumental, offering a double dose of reggae greatness. In short, "Repatriation" is a timeless work of art that stands out as one of King Kong's most accomplished projects. For fans of '80s reggae and rub a dub, this reissue is a golden opportunity to relive the magic and rediscover the enduring brilliance of this reggae luminary.
