It is a time-honored tradition at RAS Records to be the first to take a chance on an artist whom we know has great potential and will one day find a place among the most-treasured "greats" of reggae music.  From our first release with Peter Broggs to featuring early work by Ini Kamoze, Mikey Spice, Sizzla, Luciano and a host of other stars, you can always trust we are looking out for the hottest new talent to warm up your stereo.  Some of our best new performers have emerged through the strong relationship RAS has developed with producer Phillip "Fatis" Burrell and his Jamaica-based Exterminator label.   RAS releasing the latest album from the-one-people-are-talking-about Prince Malachi (produced by none other than Fatis Burrell), is just a way we are continuing a great custom.   

Watch Over We presents an artist surprisingly mature both vocally and lyrically.  At times, he is spiritual and reflective, such as we hear on the title track and "Meditation Time," and his optimistic spirit comes through on tracks like "We'll Be Strong."  The perfect blend of roots intention, inspiring words, a sweet but strong voice and an extremely addictive rhythm can be found on the cut "Fishers of Men."  No matter what the interpreted intent of his songs, Prince Malachi is undeniably matched just right with the likes of Sly and Robbie, Dean Fraser, Nambo and Jazzwad.  Malachi also shines on duets with Lion ("Universal Pain") and Prince Bob ("River Nile"), proving his versatility and bringing out his complimentary skills.  Watch Over We could be called Watch Out For He- for Prince  Malachi is surely an artist we need to be keeping an eye on and an ear to in the new millenium.
