The High Way EP is described as a Modern Dancehall & Reggae 11-track project, infused with a variety of sounds but the same core concept. It’s a craft constructed by so many dynamics to such an extent that, it covers every relevant musical theme. As it can go from a heartfelt record like Africa to a highly-spirited song such as Weed and Ah Bottle. It features local Dancehall & Reggae artists such as Pepsin, Fruitystar, Bun’Pot and Jah Kongo and King Vuvu from Ghana.
It is indeed an enjoyable listen and can take you on the highway and back. The EP is a fairly good introduction to the artiste called Botanist – Sniper from Afar, who has been gradually gaining ground since his single release “Summer Time” in 2016 [which incidentally is not included in this debut EP]. The single received an amiable response and some rotation. He was then billed as the Support act for Chronnix Live in SA and went on to feature in many local gigs around Johannesburg.
The EP is his official entry into the Dancehall Reggae scene and has a stamp of approval from fellow peers as evidenced by the number of collaborations with some of SA reggae stalwarts like Daddy Spencer, Jah Kongo and Skeleton Blazer. Other Collabos include another rising artiste Bun Pot who is his stablemate at Maximum Stylez on the track The Storm is Over.
