As a tumultuous 2020 comes to an end, reggae star Kabaka Pyramid and famed producer and DJ Max Glazer are gifting us with a remarkable body of work with the “IMMACULATE” mixtape.
Boasting an impressive track listing of 27 new and recently released songs, as well as a few customized dubs, “IMMACULATE” features notable collaborations from both established and rising stars of reggae; Namely multi-Grammy winner Damian Marley, Runkus, Pressure Busspipe, Dre Island, Royal Blu, Medisun and Jane Macgizmo
The brainchild of Kabaka and Max Glazer, the “IMMACULATE” mixtape aims to represent the full spectrum of Kabaka’s talent through his prolific lyrics and versatility whether “Kontraband pt 2”, “Trample Dem”, “Nice Up The Dance” or “Mama Earth”. “It was a great experience working on Immaculate with Kabaka. We’ve known each other for years, but this is the first time we have actually worked on a project together and this man is a lyrical force of nature. The only way to describe Kabaka Pyramid is, of course, accurate… and immaculate.” – Max Glazer
Speaking on this exciting project, Kabaka related, “Immaculate is 58 minutes of pure fire and lyricism. It’s possibly my most high energy release to date and even though the message is a must, and these are serious times we in, Immaculate also shows some of the lighter sides to the pyramid. Max really put it together like a classic mixtape, real dj vibes, and it reminds me of my high school days making mix CD’s for our sound Time Bomb. I’m just glad the world is getting to hear all these songs I’ve been going crazy over all year!”
