Likkle Jordee - Stay Home Order - (RRD-001)
Limited vinyl 7" on Roots Run Deep, an Aloha Got Soul imprint.
As we learn to live with and make the most of 2020, music has been a true healing force for our day-to-day lives. For us DJs, we’ve been spending this time digging deeper into our crates, meditating on our most treasured tunes, and adding new records to our collections. For us musicians, we see it as an opportunity to focus on what’s important in our lives and create music that matters.
During Hawaii’s first lockdown in April, local reggae powerhouses Likkle Jordee and Pana focused their energy to create a new song every week. They collaborated remotely from home, Pana building the riddim from his studio then sending it to Likkle Jordee, who then wrote lyrics and tracked his vocals live with Pana on Instagram. Together they produced a solid output of fresh tunes for the local reggae scene.
Deep in the middle of that April lockdown, they crafted their most relatable song of the year: “Stay Home Order”.
When the song hits, lyrically we can relate to Jordee’s verses (“spread love from a distance”) while Pana’s production punches with finesse throughout. “Stay Home Order” is nothing short of an expression of the times we live in — music for 2020 and beyond.
