    This is certainly one of the best dancehall releases of the year.

    The sound is open and uncluttered, rare for a genre that relishes tangles. There’s lots of liquid synths, and were they gracing a 4/4 thump, they’d have an Ibiza glow to them.

    This is a debut by default and not an all-encompassing coming out party, but Skull and Popcaan are simpatico on Where We Come From, so love it for what it is.

    Sutherland is a massively charismatic character, and it’s hard not to get caught up in the elation that he so obviously feels when he gets from finding the perfect groove. That feeling permeates every corner of the album, but it comes through strongest on two particular tracks.

    The music pushes dancehall toward pop, with slow-chorded synthesizer anthems produced by Dre Skull and snappy electro lines from Dubbel Dutch; even with Popcaan’s thick Jamaican accent, the plan is to make singalongs easy.
