U.S. based reggae label Locksmith Records is proud to release the latest studio effort from acclaimed reggae artist Sizzla, in the form of an EP entitled Don’t Mislead The Youths. The EP was released today, April 24, 2012, and is now available in CD format in select stores, including VP Records. It is also available digitally worldwide via all major digital retailers, including iTunes and Amazon.
This rebirth of Sizzla Kalonji has reggae fans around the world buzzing, as the new EP sees Sizzla reclaiming his dynamic stance on various social issues. The first single “Learn To Read” speaks on the importance of education, as Sizzla advocates young people to learn to read and write, as a way to overcome ignorance, and therefore, progress in life. Other singles from the EP include “So Lovely,” “Party,” and the title track, “Don’t Mislead The Youths.”
“This EP confirms (yet again) that Sizzla is a talented, thoughtful, intelligent and fluent performer,” states Gerry McMahon of Reggaeville.com. “His status as one of reggae’s most commercially and critically successful contemporary artists will be reinforced by this ‘Don’t Mislead The Youths’ EP.’
Don’t Mislead The Youths is a collaboration between Lyon House Muzik (Glenroy “Frosty” Jackson and Ainsworth) and Locksmith Records (Mark “BUG” Wilkins), who diligently worked together with Sizzla to accomplish their goal of creating this EP. All songs were written and performed by Sizzla Kalonji for Zabogaubhi Music, and all tracks were produced and recorded by Lyon House Muzik in Kingston, Jamaica. The EP was mixed and mastered by Dave Downie and BUG for Unlock My Mind Music, at Hilltop Studio in Brooklyn, New York.
