MeRCY continues his weekly series on “Tropical Storm”

“Tropical Storm” is the 2nd release from MeRCY’s eponymous series ‘The Everglades Sessions’. The heavily influenced reggae song was sonically produced by Solidified. This is where Puerto Rico meets Jamaica. It got a classic dancehall vibe that helps MeRCY blend his version of the Jamaican genre with undertones of adult contemporary. Along with vintage adlibs from reggae legends (Lady Saw, Bounty Killer, etc), MeRCY’s straight-down-the-middle delivery makes this record easily consumed and endlessly repeatable—intoxicating, like a shot of Wray & Nephew of a certain tropical flavor.
