Topshelf Reggae reviews Surface
"This heady, illusory album leads listeners down a reggae rabbit hole of self-reflection, with jazz, blues, funk and EDM elements thrown in for good measure. Between muted trumpets and bumping bass lines, Surface is anything but scratching the surface of how immersed The Ellameno Beat goes."
--Kristy Rose, "The Ellameno Beat Unleashes 'Surface' Album"

Huffington post premiere of "one of Us"
"Stylistically, The Ellameno Beat blends funk, soul, disco and reggae elements into what is probably best described as surf-culture music. It's a unique sound, with an ebullient and expansive nature, that is remarkable for its sophisticated creativity, yet is simultaneously simple. Frankly, it's "savage" and "on point."

Rootfire Premiere of "Muse"
"The song starts off with a simple, catchy keyboard riff over trippy synth pad before dropping into a slow and heavy, classic roots reggae beat...Reggie's gentle vocals and the overall vibe of this song bring to mind one of my favorite classic reggae artists, Gregory Isaacs."
--Dave Shiffman, "First Listen: The Ellameno Beat-Muse"
