Black Uhuru is a Jamaican reggae group formed in 1972, initially as Uhuru (Swahili for 'freedom'). The group has undergone several line-up changes over the years, with Derrick "Duckie" Simpson as the mainstay. They had their most successful period in the 1980s, with their album Anthem winning the first ever Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album in 1985. It is not known whether Black Uhuru has had a major impact on Roots Reggae, or whether the impact is only minor, yet their indelible mark on Reggae Styles remains. Mixing Lab spent extensive time working with Black Uhuru during their rise to fame and the knowledge of such craft of artwork is what we promulgate currently using adaptive production techniques.
