PDMG Dancehall Legends Vol 1

Payday Music Presents Dancehall Legends Vol 1

If the term legend, is defined “as a non-historical story handed down by tradition from earlier times and popularly accepted” and Dancehall as “a genre of Jamaican popular music, a style of dance-oriented Reggae” than the art form that is known as Dancehall, which lives through Reggae, spins the livelihood tales of Jamaican culture is most definitely a legend.

 

Then infusing with the DJs and Singjays of present, names like Bounty Killer, Buju Banton, Mavado, Vybz Kartel and Sizzla, we create storytellers. Who embed in generations old, new, and yet to come cultural sagas to be enjoyed for years to come creating dancehall legends.

 

On July 10th, Payday Music Group presents “Dancehall Legends Vol 1” a compilation of work by Grammy award winning producer, Austin “Payday” Green spanning over the last 8 yrs.  This audio collection is a showcase of some of dancehall’s greatest artist that Austin has the opportunity to produce for.

 

Austin (better known as “Payday” or “Kevin”) Green started his career in music over 14 years ago. With beginnings at Gargamel Studios, work at England’s Jet Star, as well as all the years in between producing, engineering, crafting and creating, Austin Green has contributed greatly to Reggae music. Most recently Austin and the Payday team release “Play Your Part” the official theme song for HelpJA Children initiative.

 

As “Dancehall Legends” prepares to release, Austin remarks that it was “exciting” going through years of music, choosing selections for the 1st volume, stating, “I’ve produced a lot of good music over the years, I realize my catalogue is growing. I just want to showcase some of the work”. The compilation will have eleven tracks, nine previously released with two exciting new exclusives. Some of the singles featured will be “Informa” Mavado, “Run Dem Mouth” Sizzla, “When Yuh Hold Dem” Vybz Kartel, and “Tek It To The Heights” Capleton.

 

The exclusives tracks; however, come from Bounty Killer and Buju Banton. The two new songs “Dem A Trace” from Bounty Killer and “Pressure Dem” from Buju Banton, are currently un-released and will be available only on “Dancehall Legends”.  As curiosity might strike to why Payday waited to release these singles, Austin offers this response, I don’t like to rush music. When he (Buju) was incarcerated, people tried to rush and put out what music they had, I don’t do music like that, no bandwagon thing.  It just felt like the time is right to release it. As for the Bounty single, it’s a track we revisited during the “Play Your Part” recording. It’s included on the compilation versus a regular release as to not bring “hype” and “questioning” to the song title “Dem A Trace”.

 

With that said, let the stories be told and the legends unfold, as Payday Music presents “Dancehall Legends Vol 1” on July 10. The compilation will be available on all digital outlets.

Buju Banton won the  Grammy Award for his 2010 album, 'Before the Dawn.'

Buju Banton won the Grammy Award for his 2010 album, ‘Before the Dawn.’

Buju Banton went to court  on (Feb. 14, 2011) with a new good luck charm — the 2011 Grammy for Best Reggae Album. Facing life in prison, Buju Banton won the award for his 2010 album, ‘Before the Dawn.’

Banton’s Grammy comes the day before he is scheduled to appear in court for the start of his retrial on drug conspiracy allegations. In September of last year, the judge handling the case declared a mistrial when the jury could not come to a verdict, pushing a new trial. Banton, whose real name is Mark Myrie, is facing charges of conspiracy to possess and distribute cocaine and illegal possession of a firearm in the furtherance of a crime. He is claiming he was entrapped.

In prison since Nov. 2009, Buju Banton was finally able to leave prison after the mistrial when his friend Stephen Marley posted bail by placing his Fla. home, worth $300,000, as collateral. Upon release, Buju was forced to sign an extradition waiver and wear an electronic monitoring device to ensure he stays in America.

“Buju is not guilty. The number of charges doesn’t change that,” Banton’s attorney, David Markus, said in an e-mail. “The prosecution wasn’t happy with the first trial, so now it is trying to throw as many charges against the wall in the hopes something sticks.”
