French producer and digital archaeologist Stalawa puts a new shine on a forgotten '80s gem for the second single from his Foreign Mind label. The riddim is a relic of a 1988 production for the Ottey's imprint: "Sunny Gets Blue" by Naturally. Where the original merged "Sound-Boy Burial" with a Johnny Mathis jazz standard, "Music With A Message" is a conscious chant by London emcee Dark Angel. The revamped backing was built using a vintage Yamaha DX-27 synth and Korg DDD-5 drum machine. Only in Jamaica could an easy-listening classic on national radio find its way into the dancehall.
