Official Interview with dancehall super producer “Russian” and their upcoming artist “Rasco” from Head Concussion Records. Hear Russian’s view on the current Dancehall Industry – why its not where it should be.

RUSSIAN AND KARTEL HAVE ‘THE CURE FI BAD MIND’

Top dancehall producer and deejay Russian has released the collaborative single The Cure (Fi Bad Mind) featuring the World Boss, Vybz Kartel.

According to Russian who is also the mastermind behind the hit making Head Concussion label, the song was recorded just before Kartel’s incarceration.

‘People always hate on people who are successful. When you are nobody, no one really gives you the time of day. But as soon as you become successful, people have opinions on how you should live your life. I guess it’s because they are envious why they criticize. It’s not necessarily out of concern”, Russian explained in a release to the media.

Feedback to the song has been overwhelming and it is already a hot item on the radio.

This isn’t the first time that Kartel has collaborated with Russian.  Life Sweet was the first track Russian produced for Kartel. Since then they have teamed up on hits such as Jeans and Fitted, Look Pon We and Get Gal Anywhere.

The accompanying artwork for the single the Cure (Fi Bad Mind) is an interesting one. Both Kartel and Russian are dressed as doctors preparing for a surgery.

“The concept behind the artwork is that we have finally come up with the cure for Jamaica’s #1 disease. And who cures diseases? Doctors!” Russian concluded.

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.

For the premieres of “Dem A Trace” and “Pressure Dem” and more information follow@PaydayMusic. Visit PaydayMusicGroup.com for a complete musical catalog

Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.

Each artist in the industry has a story to tell. The triumphs and the challenges. This holds true for the mega international recording artist Sean Paul. Late last week, Sean Paul’s Twitter followers would have seen his tirade directed at a particularly persistent follower, who told him “don’t fabricate street cred … be real” (among other things), apparently based on statements made by Sean Paul during a recent television interview on the Mo’Nique Show. Sean Paul was clearly not amused, and in an exclusive follow-up interview with Nikki-Z, he spoke further about people constantly styling him as UPT (uptown) – born with a gold spoon in his mouth.
