Glen Washington nominated for Grammy Award for MASTERPIECE
Glen's latest album is truly a 'Masterpiece'. Just nominated for the 2012 Reggae Grammy Award, this one hits us as an exceptional album, with the songs all working together with the same feeling and messages.
Very refreshing when most 'albums' are just collections of singles, the production on this one is consistent with the same real instruments, players, and production throughout giving it a very cohesive vibe.
A great collection of the Rasta songs of praise, songs to give inspiration, and sweet lovers tunes to set the mood when you are with your special someone.
The first song to be released 'Fall On Me' - was featured on the ZIon High productions compilation Jah Golden Throne. Rodigan was playing this tune tough when it first dropped. A laid back roots sound, it reminded us of the messages and vibes the music had 15 years ago when we started Solomonic, instantly earning a place in the box and has been warming up dances ever since.
The first time I got this album it took me almost 4 hours to listen to it, because I kept pulling up the songs through the whole thing! Very hard to pick my favorites, but I would say 'There is a Joy', 'Take Away The Whip', 'When We Pray', 'My Vision', and 'One Way' are the ones I keep going to.

Review from Washington Post
"Solomonic Sound is one of Philly's best exports in reggae sound system culture - these cats know their dubplates."
