Smooth and sultry reggae rock star Jus Goodie is back with a devilishly satiable love song, “Light on the Runway”. Recorded at the band’s new home studio built during COVID and produced by Loud City’s Dan Grossman (Sizzla, Vybz Kartel, Collie Buddz), this track is the sweet return to sanity and safety that everyone has been so patiently waiting for. Seriously, the whole world needs guidance out of the darkness caused by last year’s mayhem… a “light on the runway” into a new dawn.
Island-inspired and infused with saxophone sweetness, Jus Goodie delivers yet another solid expressive jam.
A combination of bubble organ, kettle drum and a whole lot of reverb immediately sucks you in — a sense of relief washes over you. Here is deliverance; here is home. Jus Goodie was lost in the storm, wayward at sea, yet is being handed a sense of direction through the act of love. The only thing important to Goodie is “making my way back home to you.” Words that melt like butter.
Jus Goodie comments on the track: “It’s a metaphor for when a plane is flying in the dark and the lights on the runway are there to guide everyone to their destination. If the lights don’t exist, the pilot won’t know where to land. In the human experience, everyone feels lost at times.”
Not only is this single a gateway into Goodie’s fourth studio album (set to release this September), but it marks the first time the other half of the band, Zan, steps up to lead vocals. Normally singing backup harmonies, Zan glows on the bridge, emanating powerful gusto in a call and answer-style exchange with Goodie. With another album on the horizon, the sky is the limit for Jus Goodie, as long as the runway is lit if and when he prepares to land.
