Don’t you just love the moments when you listen to a new artist or an album and don’t know what to expect and the sound is so powerful you just say “get out of here!”?
Well, I do and I had one of those moments a while ago when I put French youthful deejay Naâman’s debut album 'Deep Rockers – Back A Yard' in the CD player. I had received a promo copy and hadn’t heard about him before and actually thought about shelving it without giving it a listen, but for some reason I changed my mind, and I’m glad I did. Because this album is hip-hop-fueled reggae at its best.
Naâman evolved on the French reggae scene three years ago and was this year voted as Revelation of the Year at French Web Reggae Victories. He has previously only released a mixtape and a successful single on Youtube.
'Deep Rockers – Back A Yard' was mainly produced and recorded in Jamaica by Fatbabs at the legendary Harry J studio together with musicians such as Sam Clayton, Stephen Stewart, Dalton Browne and Sly Dunbar.
The sound is a bit reminiscent of mid 80’s Sly & Robbie or George Phang, especially the severely hard skanking Cutty Ranks combination Rebel For Life.
Naâman has a great sense for strong melodies and he also has a natural, rhythmic and vigorous flow when he rides the pulsating and thumping riddims effortlessly. He should however focus on his deejay skills, since his singing is not as strong.
This potent and explosive album offers a fresh take on hip-hop-influenced reggae delivered with a high dose of passion and youthful playfulness. (Fortaken: http://unitedreggae.com/)
In french:
Présenté par l'industrie musicale, flairant le bon coup, et la presse spécialisée, toujours suiviste, comme le renouveau du reggae "Made in France", Naâman ne s'en sort pas trop mal pour ce premier album. A découvrir.

Thanks to the resounding success of his 2012 released "Deep Rockers" mixtape and the "Skanking Shoes" song, young singjay (Martin) Naâman - the freshest branch of the French reggae tree - has attracted a lot of attention in his home country. After being elected 'Revelation of 2013' by the Reggae Victories, Naâman's debut album "Deep Rockers, Back A Yard" is certain to fortify the status he has already achieved in France. However, time will tell if he will be able to become a household name on the international reggae scene.
In the winter of 2012, Naâman and Fatbabs - his long standing associate dj and beatmaker - went to Jamaica to work on the tracks for this "Deep Rockers, Back A Yard" album. In Kingston they recorded at Harry J studio under the watchful guidance of experienced sound engineers Sam Clayton and Stephen Stewart, while great musicians such as Sly Dunbar on drums, Daniel "Axeman" Thompson on bass and Dalton Browne on guitar were involved in playing the riddims. Nine of the ten tracks featured on this set were recorded in Jamaica, while the bonus track, "One Day", was recorded in Normandy, France.
Those who are familiar with Naâman's "Deep Rockers" mixtape, will instantly recognise the five do-overs of songs that appeared on the mixtape. First there's a new and truly great version of the up tempo "Freedom", coming with a tasty chorus and a real joy to listen to. Then you'll get the infectious "Skanking Shoes", which makes a solid impression throughout. "Rockers" - incorporating an appealing trumpet sound - carries a completely different vibe, but is a decent effort too. "Madness", which comes on a relicked version of Larry Marshall's classic "Throw Me Corn" riddim, belongs to the highlights of this album. Last but not least there's a new version of "Frontline", a hip-hop flavoured tune worth hearing.
One of the brand new pieces is "Rebel For Life", the collaboration with deejay Cutty Ranks. Without any doubt this is the lead track of this album. Great tune! The darker sounding "Badman Beware" has a great bass line and is a song that has to grow on you. The smooth, lighthearted "House Of Love" is a nice song for a warm sunny day, but that's about it. Finally there's a remixed version of "Smoke Tricks", which was released as a single earlier this year. The album is rounded off with "One Day", a charming acoustic song.
With the help of some well-respected Jamaican veterans, French rookie Naâman has managed to create a much promising debut album, worth checking out!! (Fortaken: http://www.reggae-vibes.com/
