Sgt. Remo, born Sergio Ortiz in Juarez, Mexico, is a reggae artist who has made his home in San Antonio, TX. He has consistently toured during the last several years and built a solid fan base throughout the U.S. and Latin America. He has performed in most U.S. cities, Japan, Colombia, and regularly throughout Mexico. His 2014 album Give Thanks for Life was recognized by New York’s AIRM’s Top 30 Reggae albums of 2014 and Denmark’s Reggae Moods Top 15 Roots & Culture Albums of the year. Sgt. Remo has performed in various festivals and opened for many greats in the reggae genre like Burning Spear, Luciano, Kabaka Pyramid, General Smiley, Warrior King, and Turbulence.
The album Oh Jah can be best described as a mix of heavy roots/steppers/dub reggae. Side A offers the title track Oh Jah, a hypnotic, heavy roots reggae song reminiscent of a Midnite, Yabby You, or early Lee Scratch Perry production. McPullish also produced a melodica and dub versions which will please collectors of 70’s twelve-inch reggae/dub albums. Side B is the steppers Can’t Color Me Badd which rides the heavy roots, four-to-the-floor style of reggae popularized by UK dub sound systems inspired by Jah Shaka and other pioneers of the subgenre. The album is 45 rpm. Each side is limited to about eleven minutes of strictly audiophile quality reggae music.
