Single Review: “Turn It Up” Onika Venus

Ahhh a bit of reggae! Again, with that 70s vibe the latter part of the Faves has such a retro feel, and as we squeeze out the last dregs of the summer we might as well have some sunshine in the tunes to give it a lift.

The intro challenges us to turn it up, I certainly did and I’m happy I did. The vocals are well rounded, against a backdrop of bass, drums, percussion and a horn section. Is that a sleigh bell?

Must be.

Onika Venus is a singer and songwriter from South Manchester in Jamaica, now based in the Forest of Dean.

A seasoned performer, Onika has worked with the likes of Seanie B from BBC1 Xtra, Tubby T and Miss Dynamite (under the stage name Lady Posh), and fronted the band Slyde, who were nominated best new act at The Breakbeat Awards.
