Matisyahu:: Shattered; Los Angeles tonight

Futurist reggae provocateur Matisyahu made his recent return with the release of his new EP, Shattered. The four-song EP features tracks from his new full-length album, Light (due out in early 2009), and follows a path of ascension that began in 2004 with his debut album Shake Off the Dust…Rise. Produced by David Kahne (Paul McCartney, Regina Spektor, Sublime), Shattered features songs from Matisyahu’s forthcoming album recorded and mixed in Jamaica, New York, Los Angeles and Virginia. Several guest artists contribute to the four-song EP: ground-breaking Jamaican reggae rhythm section Sly &Robbie (drums and bass, “Two Child One Drop” and “I Will Be Light”) Stephen McGregor (co-producer, keyboards, drum-programming, “Smash Lies”) son of legendary reggae artist Freddie McGregor and among Jamaica’s youngest and most innovative young producers, Fish (drums, “So Hi So Lo”) and Norwood Fisher (bass, “So Hi So Lo”) of the legendary L.A. alt-punk-ska band Fishbone and experimental turntablist Ooah from the Glitch Mob (co-producer, co-writer, drum programming on “Two Child One Drop”).
