Rebelution vocalist/guitarist Eric Rachmany and renowned producer, DJ, and remixer Amp Live (formerly of Zion I) may possess different backgrounds, but they both travel the same creative road and have combined to forge their own sound as Unified Highway. The duo has shared the stage and collaborated live for over a decade, but it wasn’t until 2014 that they formally recorded together, and Unified Highway was born. Their self-titled debut album, released in 2016, traversed through reggae, electronic, hip-hop, and alternative, flowing into a cohesive and catchy vibe captured in the 13 songs. The duo are back with a new album, Headlines, that builds on their foundation, but adds new layers, features, and more infectious excursions in electro-reggae-pop music, along with appearances by Reverie, Del Tha Funky Homosapien, Beebs, Million Stylez, Courtney P (of New Kingston), and Karim Israel (of Arise Roots).
The band’s next album Headlines comes out April 24, 2020, with the title track single out now. Amp Live enthusiastically elaborates on the new single, “‘Headline’ is a great song to pave the way for our second album. We really wanted this project to pick up the pace and be straight to the point in terms of message and sound. The track does it all. This was actually one of the last songs completed for the project, so I am glad it happened.”
The second single “Unique,” a collaboration with Reverie, is bound to turn heads. “This is my favorite song on the album,” says Eric about it. “When we wrote the instrumental, it truly felt like it was a unique beat. I thought the word ‘unique’ was hard to say in a song, but the more I thought about it the more I couldn’t turn back. It became the name of the song and a recurring word said throughout.”
