about

"If this album taught me something then that great persistence and patience are one of the most significant aspects of achieving one’s goals.
This was mine.
When I’m recalling how much fun we had creating, playing, shaping and recording this piece of joint time my heart is filled with deep gratitude. Without the help and advice of so many it all wouldn’t have come into being. Thank you so much!"


Locker, ungezwungen und leichtfüßig, mit kompromisslosem Gesang und Texten mit Aussage. Zwölf Titel umfassend, einem Dutzend guter Argumente, weshalb sein Longplayer „Coming Home“ keiner ist, den man nach kurzem Hören wieder in die Ecke stellt. Es sind Songs mit catchy Melodien, von stilsicheren Instrumentals, großartigen Backing Vocals und der eindrucksvollen Stimme des Sängers getragen – Modern- Roots-Reggae mit Songwriter-Qualitäten!

Ephraim Juda: „Das Gefühl nach Hause zu kommen bedeutet für mich Geborgenheit. Nach Hause kommen heißt auch innerlich ankommen, du hast dich lange mit etwas auseinandergesetzt und weißt was du willst. Du bist zu Hause. Das möchte ich transportieren und mit der Platte ein Stück Zuhause teilen. Die meisten Leute kennen mich ja bisher noch nicht und so stelle ich mich ihnen mit 'Coming Home' erstmal vor.“

Co-produziert und gemischt wurde das Album in der „Growkammer“, dem Studio des Berliner Produzenten und Sängers Ganjaman. Für das Mastering konnte die Londoner Studio-Legende Kevin Metcalfe gewonnen werden, der sich unter anderem für Produktionen von Paul McCartney, U2, Shaggy oder Dennis Brown verantwortlich zeichnet.

I will never stop to sing my song
I will never stop fi hold I meditation
I will always join the music with me fellow and me friend
Africa we roots and the culture we a blend

Chorus: …

you fill me up with colourful visions of ancient time
you digging up so many forgotten pictures on my mind
you linkin up (all) those fragments dem a merging a sign
well, it makes sense when I see what we are assigned
come seal it up (you) got to relieve my day and do me no harm
gonna big it up when you keep me birthplace safe and calm
me lift it up the future emerge from I&I palm
let’s raise the anthem, gather and swarm

Chorus: …

Boti:
the sun is shining on the windows and the old rooftops
my plane is leaving this morning but we still have got
some more hours to remind us of the joy we’ve got
never forget to remember that when you are in doubt in your heart
Track Name: Coming Home
Chorus:
I’m coming home and now I’m `bout stay
I won’t set out again I just had to find my way
I’m coming home and I won’t leave again
coz this a the residence a me family and friends

when I’m homesick, far away ina foreign town
I’m missing all those colours that a used to be around
I know my district every alley, every compound
none a this alien streets could ever be my own
nothin’ familiar, somehow I’m feeling lost
kinda silly ya, cyaan appreciate a different gloss
even if it’s similar, nothing will ever get above
my yard I once came across

Chorus: …

on the highway and some fifty miles left
me wind down me window and me take a deep breath
anticipation ago kill me gimme no time fi rest
while me heartbeat almost tear me chest
me get it now, I’ve been too long away
cyaan take it slow, really feels like I’m on delay
fashion come and go, tomorrow differs from today
but the spirit will never fade away

Chorus: …

back a yard everything just cris fi me
me gyal ina me arm, dedication and divinity
meeting up my friends no hatred nor animosity
everything just cool, life can run so easily
I’m coming home with a smile upon my face
dashing ‘long the streets forming up a maze
being the playground in my childhood days
I’m digging the vibes, it is just my taste

Chorus: …
Track Name: Heat Is On
Chorus:
when the heat is on, sufferation straight on
see me helplessly starin’ a dem malicious action
the heat is on, the people dem mourn
see me painfully wonder how dem treat the nation
the heat is on, sufferation straight on
see me helplessly starin’ a dem malicious action
the heat is on, the people dem mourn
see me cry ‘bout dem treatment a me motherland

you see dem sick we, babylon a straight trick we
suckin’ out the blood a the innocent pickney
a when dem trick we everything a flip back way
mashin’ up the place man a built passionately
but when dem hear we sound, get a glimpse a we compound
dem a notice we nah give up, nah surrender, we nah wear no frown
everything goes up and down, wanna get hold a we crown
a the battlefield dem herald the next round

Chorus: …

well, you see me cry while news a passing by
rushing through my thoughts as if a whirlwind coming by
truly you see me cry, me acted bona fide
abused, misused, deceived and now me come fi reply
me nah waan fi hesitate, me mind I liberate
too long dem fully paralize I thoughts for dem evil sake
well, now it’s time to shape man haffi congregate
evidently dem nah know what is at stake

Chorus: …

well, sizzlin’ fire rise up, me hands a firmly tied up
me nah dare fi move ‘fraid I’m knocking over everything that I bear up
conscience a urge and call up, get a rid a useless fall-out
life a di greatest gift man a ever got me wonder why dem seal it up
everything the father give out dem a disapprove and sort out
infiltrate my mind penetrate my sense with dem insistend talk up
full a ache yuh hear me baal out, me desperately a shout out
refuge anyone a seek out?

Chorus: …
Track Name: Dawn
Chorus:
Sunbeams pon my face goose bumps all over, I know I got to raise
light upon my face, the warmth a cover the hints I ought fi trace
shine upon my face, I sense thy power, be my shepherd all days
grin upon my face, be my shelter always


twinklin’ stars dem a disappear
mornin’ lights a flood my room ceiling and the air
while I get up all shades dem a tear
through the open windows birds song reach my ear
the weather’s fine and the sight is clear
nothin’ can harm this beautiful atmosphere
me want fi embrace everyone around here
life is dear

Chorus: …

I cross the bridge on my bike through the district
everything asleep just a few pon the concrete
shops are closed prepare themselves fi the stampede
everyone a struggle coz production dem dump it
nuff a dem a say the market demand it
a life full a affluence we often use fi waste it
the simple things we rarely come fi trace it
I face it

Chorus: …

sun sets but the warmth still there
truly confident I’ll push aside all me fear
plenty of energy get hold a me steer
pursue me dreams knowin’ me route dem cyaan smear
sun sets but the warmth still there
truly confident I’ll push aside all me fear
plenty of energy get hold a me steer
heaven is on earth unno hear

Chorus: …
Track Name: Woman Of Mine feat. Boti
Chorus:
I never thought I coulda find a woman like this
she surrounds me everything around me cease fi twist
I never thought I coulda find a woman like this
she surround me everything around me cease fi twist

me like her style, she got a certain air
she treat me right, just cyaan be unfair
a reticent smile and I’ll be there
she’s my angel, my darling, so I’ll take care
cherish we love just want fi declare
she’s what I ever wanted me cyaan compare
sometin’ so lovely fi feelings I share
i wish she got some time to spare

Chorus: …

woman of my dreams, woman of my journey
together we a step nah figet fi keep you safely
lean back and rest we nah take things to hasty
me nah want fi fail you I beg you fi trust me
woulda never wasted some’ that a feel so purely
me font a you and you soft delicacy
nah do me harm and disappear so promptly
now that I found you me cyaan live without thee (coz)

Chorus: …

Boti:
woman of mine I know that our love is right
every night I bless your name for the way that you suit my mind
first kissed by candle light on the tower of our own desire
and tonight let’s get it on nothing in the world that is so pure, oh baby

Chorus: …
Track Name: Feelin' One
Chorus:
I’m feelin’ one, waves of joy a floating
no one else keep me away from being strong
see, say one, all a me doubts a croaking
wipin’ out speculation
feelin’ one, the curse it a broken
end a time that used to be troublesome
I’m feelin’ one, contentment dissolvin’
ina one mind contemplation

cannot help fi be myself, all a your masks left in the shelf
face off I take my stand, stereotypes went off fi hell
even if it might be hard, will cost a lot a scars
me nah give up, nah surrender, nah go drop off, me nah fall apart
see me feelin’ better now, me a ready fi bend me bow
hit dem with word, sound and power none a dem ever can catch me flow
content with the tings I got, keep on pushing till dem flop
brainwash policies ya know say we haffi cut it back
finally me dreams come true, Babylon ago get slue
never felt this way never felt better coz I know Jah see me through
came here fi display and show, I’m about to let you know
another breeze a blow

Chorus: …

my life it a used to be up and down
frenemies being up to rob my crown
pure distraction and evil all around
had to get myself together, time fi rebound
back again with a whole lot a energy
ultimately regained all me serenity
I don’t care if dem set dem demons free
just let dem demons be coz

Chorus: …

you say you nah like how me carry myself
just because I`m not like someone else
your conventions nah fit my way of life
I´m just not into this 9 till 5
I got respect for every hardworking man
fi every lonesome sister trying to get along
but accept this is my destiny, I`m grateful to the One
who inspired me to sing this song

Chorus: …
Track Name: Revolution Time feat. Reedoo
Chorus:
revolution time, revolution time
figet about the killin’ and figet about the crime
revolution time, revolution time
Jah children want fi see Jah wonders and sign

Ephraim:
well me sing redder,

get rid a the outlaw, politricks and hot stepper
why don’t you come fi join tomorrows upsetter
instead a disapprove todays endeavour ?

before you a pointing at another man’s manner
unno got to lay down and remove ya moral armor
free de innocent a the slammer

Chorus: …

Reedoo:
we need to turn the key to open the door
go ahead my brother,
gonna walk with a sure foot to the next floor

outsider, but willing to dedicate my life fi one thing, ya
a change fi the better

Chorus: …

Reedoo & Ephraim:

realize dem idealistic warmonger a flop
the more lies dem tell the more we rise to the top
revolution cyaan stop!
I&I carry on, dem cyaan pop we off, mash up we good intention
so we got to be strong, so many things left to do and we got to know right from wrong
I&I carry on, you cyaan intimidate we revolutionary congregation
we got to move on, so lift up your voices one more time and help me chant this ya one

Chorus: …
Track Name: Youths Of Today
Chorus:
the youths of today want no struggle, want no fight, cyaan take dem hearsay
the youths of today want fi break free a the pulse a the concrete grey
the youths of today set out fi change a world going astray
the youths of today cryin’ fi release a the beast of prey

me wonder how the people dem behave uptown
full a ignorance sneerin’ a the matter downtown
awarding demselve ina million smoking and gown
none a dem gossip ever let me astound
dress fi kill, nuff a dem come up like a clown
dem fi chill, youths haffi save every pound
wallets a filled, dem rasclaat nah upside down
a the courtyard dem a wearin’ a frown

Chorus: …

dem assert opportunities dem plenty
youths dem a hang out rather being too lazy
nah use no offering dem allegedly gave we
never brought we up fi live a life properly
cyaan get along how dem try fi friend we
a flatterin’ tongue will never ever bend we
want we portion and that a elementary
let justice come fi surround we

Chorus: …

me cyaan find no place around, cyaan fi no place fi chill
no one fi talk to when me almost burstin until
some’ terrible a happen some’ unpredictable
dem nah care fi the youths think dem unresponsible

never knew, never imagined none a dem countable
fi all offense dem commit even if dem horrific
father ago judge dem strict

Chorus: …
Track Name: Father A Come
Chorus:

nah pay no rent a fi we own property
the world is yours and the world is mine
cyaan put me ina jail fi no trespass I cyaan find
you say you judge on laws dem a signed
me really wonder if Iman not up to time
no man illegal and no man bout fi resign
fi steppin’ the righteous path in line

Chorus: …

dem cup a run over
still dem ago dare fi fill it up again
better come fi drink it up
coz your mischief a no witty something
an hideway all the children dem a seek
cyaan endure the city stampede
too much brainwash education ‘bout fi soft up we creed
unno see it?

Chorus: …

come structure your thoughts
and you might see through
the beauty of life you spoil up and screw
devastating manner has been a part a you
still a breed among the surface like a bird flu
unno research a gwaan your drugs dem brandnew
treatment nah work nightmares a come true
since you nah see what is I&I clue
you a doing the tings you do

Chorus: …
Track Name: Reflection
I feel so miserable overrating small matters I`ve got
value life in all it’s kind impede a rush to the top
feel like I push myself too hard while dear tings rather lost their spot
who am I surrendering, false prophets plot?
get to know myself down where the waters drop
ain’t easy to cope with all the bothering question I’ve got
am I too hasty or is it just the way tings – fuck!
everything goes in circles and I don’t know where to stop

Chorus:
reflection, where all this doubts come from
reminiscing the days and the tings I’ve done
reflection, where all this fear come from
be myself in this rat race I’m working on
reflection, still I keep hoping on
never ever lose my faith in the almighty one
reflection, truth overcome

oh yes I know I’m vulnerable even if I dislike it
my body is aching and I cyaan get along with it
I don’t know what to do, begging the doctor to heal it
he’s saying I am de only one fi beat it, beat it

Chorus: …

inner emptiness I’m feelin anytime the system gets me weak
when I lost direction and almost contradict I creed
then I ‘member those days of joy when me climbed all mountain peak
experience has taught me nah hesitate, nah stop fi proceed

Chorus: …
Track Name: Too Fast feat. Sara Lugo
Chorus: …
well, you drive too fast

well, you drive too fast

Ephraim:

Chorus: …
Track Name: It's Over Now feat. Jahcoustix & Boti
Ephraim:
I had to carry heavy loads on my back
felt like my feet were already dippin’ in the mud
somewhere on the road suddenly it got me stuck
my life shouldn’t be like that
I wouldn’t have thought I could turn it around
you won’t see me again wearin’ a frown
life is too precious fi let yourself down
kings and queens come and put on your crown

Chorus:
bad times are over now, it is over now
jah children nah have to run for cover now
it is over now, it is over now
the time has come fi taking over yow
it is over now, it is over now
jah children nah have to run for cover now
it is over now, it is over now
bad times are over

Jahcoustix:
sometimes things are coming to an end
but it’s just a fresh new start
when darkness seem to be covering you
and there is no more love ina your heart
a beam of light can make you survive
be curios like a child
don’t fear the future my brothers and sisters
coz your faith lies in your hands

Chorus: …

Boti:
things might cave in on you
and it seems that you got no clue
there is a way out coz true
you see, no matter what they say
this life belongs to you

Chorus: …
