Tatanka – “100 Weight”
“100 Weight” Background:
Tatanka’s new self-titled album with 12 new songs will drop on September 9th via Roots Musician Records. The album was recorded at Imperial Sound Recording Studio with producer E.N Young. The album includes special guest appearances by Ted Bowne of Passafire, E.N Young & MAAD T-Ray of Tribal Seeds as well as Triston Palma.
The first song off the new album is “100 Weight” – Here is what the group told The Pier about the new song:
“This is what we love to do as a band. A blend of classic Caribbean styles with a future twist. The melodies and progression were inspired by new dancehall and old Jamaica reggae dub. The lyrics come from dealing with stress of all kinds. Being able to rise above the stress. The song is a powerful example of Tatanka music – We figured it was a perfect track to set the mood for the album.”
