Reggae group STR8WYZ share 1970s remake 'A Quiet Place'.

‘Quiet Place’ by Kingston, Jamaican-based group STR8WYZ takes us back to those car rides in the late nineties when we were kids, travelling around town with our families. We come from a neighbourhood where Jamaicans are a large per cent of the African-American population, so some sounds hit us like no others, bringing back childhood memories. Influenced by seventies-style music, STR8WYZ remake the Horace Andy & John Holt original. Check it out.
