With albums by Exile Di Brave and Leah Rosier, and riddim production 'World Of Righteousness Riddim' ('Don't Judge' is a dubby instrumental of Robina Souilljee's eponymous version over that riddim), 2017 has been a prolific year for Black Star Foundation, and multi-instrumentalist, sound engineer and producer Eelco Kastermans aka Asher-E had a major hand in all of those projects. It's therefore only fair the label ends the year with an instrumental melodica-album from the man himself. 'Black Star Melodies' features 8 tracks in which, apart from Asher's melodica, violin, percussion and guitar, can also be heard, together with the voices of Exile Di Brave ('On A Mission' is an instrumental version of Exile Di Brave's 'Never Get Weak Yet'), Marlon Asher, U Roy (the great 'Control Tower') and Vivian Jones ('All Of My Life ' is a version of Jones' 'All My Life'), all artists Asher collaborated with over the past few years. Classic melodica-album in the style of grandmaster Augustus Pablo.
