As BoomDraw describes it, he wanted to re-imagine the sonic environment of the song as well as leave room for the vocal to shine through the track. Providing his signature Production, you can’t help but rock to it, let it free you, and share with others. Artwork by Trinidad’s Sarkastik Ambassador.

The location was chosen because of the natural beauty of the land, but more significantly its rich cultural history. St. Ann is the birthplace of Bob Marley, Marcus Garvey, Burning Spear, and Shabba Ranks. It was there that Lee Scratch Perry discovered the Wailers (giving prominence to Marley and Peter Tosh). St. Ann is also the burial place of Marley – who was laid to rest there in his family’s mausoleum.
