One of the sweetest combinations I've heard
recently is that of Suga Roy and Gregory Isaacs.
The chune is called "Soon Forward" and has
a bit of an interesting story to it.
The original was performed by Gregory in 1979
and was an instant hit. Suga Roy always loved
the riddim and the chune and made it a mission
to one day perform on the riddim.
Fast forward to 2003, and this is where we find
Suga Roy and Gregory Isaacs in the studio recording
the updated version of "Soon Forward."
The location was Bobby Digital's studio at 8 Ron's
Road in Jamaica, and the vibes were at a high.
Suga re-licked the riddim and that was all Gregory
needed to hear.
Laying down smooth and sweet vocals, Gregory
romanced the riddim with his lyrics. Suga, gave
the chune some grit with his DJ style and the rest
is history. The two artists play off of the punchline
'turn me on' making this chune a renewed classic!
