You can love it or hate it but the last couple of years has been a trying one for most of the people living on this Earth. We have seen massive earthquakes, pandemics, massive death tolls. We all need something to be positive about. Well, music has that sort of magic touch where it can lift a spirit, turn a whole day around. Well, that’s what Riddim To Dem is doing. The label took time out to produce a project which allowed six artists to open up, share views, thoughts and also words of comfort followed with solid productions.
Alkashi, Boogzino, Lenz Real, Mark Messam, Tranea Luxe x Sharp Shooter & VIP make up this 6 track project. Each act laying his/ her vocals creating storylines that are very much relatable to daily issues life might just throw at us. “We Can Do This” by Mark Messam is a clear example of a man showing and explaining that with unity based on companionship we can survive as a couple and as a people. Melodically soothing to the ears and what we appreciate from a good Reggae song. A next stand out track would be “Hard Life” by Alkashi, a well-written track which clearly shows a young man battling with life and still holding his head high and doing the right thing. A song which has the potential to play anytime anywhere in the Dancehall or on the radio. The same can be said for all the tracks and “Give Thanks” by Lenz Real lends to the same thought. Here is a track simply reminding us to be thankful and continue to show gratitude despite whatever is going on out there in the world.
Each track was all about heartfelt situations quotes ” Rohan” of RTD. “Each track was basically carved out of a vibes and convo we were all having pertaining to experiences happening to ourselves and colleagues around us.” “With the type of year we just had plus with us breaking our new act we decided to allow the young acts to share their views through the production.” We will certainly be looking forward to the full project as its set to release under Zojak Worldwide for distribution this February. The full release date is set for the 12th of February and the team is looking forward to finishing up their first video from the project.
