Spark Seeker CD

Brooklyn-based Matisyahu gained acclaim as a Hasidic hip-hop-inspired reggae artist.  In late 2011, the Grammy-nominated talent shaved his signature beard and long locks, tweeting that he was reclaiming himself and, while he was no longer Hasidic, he was still dedicating himself to a divine mission.  On his first studio album since his transformation, Spark Seeker, the singer/emcee's spiritual side continues to shine.  And so does his knack for mixing reggae, hip-hop, and pop to create catchy uplifting anthems (I Believe in LoveLive Like a Warrior, Shine On You).  There's also a dubstep-inflected thumper (Searchin) and a few guest appearances by former Bad Boy MC-turned-Hasidic artist Shyne.  Tel Aviv'n sounds like a shimmering club jam, with lyrics live Moving and shaking and taking it off, but you don't have to listen too closely to realize Matis is talking about something deeper than risqué revelry. - iTunes
