Beres Hammond is one of a handful of modern performers responsible for maintaining the legacy of soulful reggae music. Over the course of a 30-year career, Beres has poured his smoky-sweet voice over riddim tracks from the funked-up jams of his '70s fusion band Zap Pow to the spare digital beats of his 1985 dancehall breakthrough "What One Dance Can Do." He's also known as a crooner on the R&B circuit, having hooked up with Penthouse Records in 1990 to record the lovers' anthem "Tempted to Touch." Wyclef Jean joined Hammond last summer to record the Latin-flavored jam "Dance 4 Me," a song that combines Beres' vocals with Clef's raps and flamenco guitar. "All you fake singers," Clef raps as the tunes fades, "bow down to the legend."
