Garrison Hawk (a.k.a. Hawkman) is back with his new album ‚The Adrenaline‘, returning to his roots with a fantastic dancehall and reggae collection after having made a solid name for himself in alternative rock, pop and progressive rock. Here the listener can grasp hardcore Jamaican dancehall, bringing you back to the root of dancehall while giving you an adrenaline rush.
Each of the 13 tracks have a stealth intensity that speaks for itself – songs with a feel and meaning that will take you on an imaginary trip. Renowned dancehall deejay (and Janet Jackson collaborator) Beenie Man also makes a special appearance on the track ‚Gal Have Wants‘.
Garrison Hawk is well known for his work on Tricky’s 2001 album ‚Blowback‘, the UK artist having told Billboard magazine „Hawk is my partner, musically“. Garrison Hawk also gained wide recognition for ‚Gangsta Roll‘, which nudged him on to the world stage, reached #9 on the HYPE TV top 20 chart, and received radio airplay around the world. Hawk’s charting club remix of ‚Sweet Music‘ is also notable, having been leaked to radio and subsequently climbing to #11 on the UK pop charts.
„By doing work in different genres of music, I now have a bigger appreciation for loving my roots, which is dancehall and reggae, the real stuff like Shabba Ranks, Ninjaman, Beenie Man, Bounty Killer and Capleton. I just felt I needed to go back to my authentic roots and that return to the roots is the central theme for my new album,“ says Garrison Hawk.
