Reggae Vibes:
"Nemozian Rasta" was released in 2001, the title 'Nemozian' referring to the Greek goddess of memory who gave birth to the Muses. Most of the tracks included here feature the incredible singer Vaughn Benjamin on lead vocals, except for the tunes Most High, Right Direction and Sing Out on which female vocalist Dezarie takes over in her unique style. - More

Reggae Reviews:
Described as "a Midnite - I Grade collaboration" (I Grade encompassing the record label, production company, and contributing musicians) -- H.I.M.although it contains 3 tunes from Dezarie (two of which are on her breathtaking debut Fya) -- Nemozian Rasta (Nemozian referring to the Greek goddess of memory who gave birth to the Muses.  Like, duh . . .) could be interpreted by fans as a straight Midnite album.  However, the I Grade portion of the equation lends a subtle variation on the Midnite sound that listeners have come to relish.  - More
