More Info:

Originally released on the Sally B label in 1986, You've Changed was produced between Jamaica and Canada. Recorded and mixed at Channel One Recording Studio, the riddims were laid in the heart of Jamaica and digitally enhanced in Canada, synthesizing old school reggae with new electronic music into a digi roots overdrive. Styles, languages, ancient history, politics, and day-to-day living seamlessly intertwine in what could be described as an avant-garde science fiction album, incredibly modern, even more so today.Horace MartinHorace Martin (aka The Man With The Biggest Shoes, aka Whistle, aka Lawyer) was born on May 5th, 1958 in Kingston, Jamaica. Growing up listening to Dennis Brown and Horace Andy, and watching The Three Stooges, Richard Pryor, and Charlie Chaplin, young Horace mixed his passions for music and comedy into one, becoming the eclectic entertainer he is today.In the late 1970s, Horace recorded his first two singles for Laurel Benjamin aka Dentlock, a dentist turned music producer on Orange Street, downtown Kingston. Dentlock gave Horace the initial push he needed, recording Beautiful Dream and Jah Jah Children on his labels Iron Label and Big Ben Records. Riding the wave of his first singles, Horace Martin went international. From Jamaica to the US, to Canada and England.Alongside his performing acts and infinite singles production, Horace released his first album Watermelon Man on the Mister Tipsy label in 1985. The following year, together with Garfield Brown, he gave birth to his most iconic and experimental 1986 album: You've Changed on the Sally B label. 1988 saw the release of Horace Martin's third album: Mix Up on the Redman International label, and many years later, in 2005, Negus Roots released under the name of Pozitive Vibez a long-lost album from the 1980s.Constantly reinventing himself, over the years, Horace Martin has recorded over 400 songs, aired on over 9000 radio stations, performed at over 37 international festivals, and toured in over 24 countries worldwide including Brazil, Mexico, Germany, France, Spain, and The Netherlands.
