SEAN PAUL RELEASE MONUMENTAL DANCEHALL ALBUM
‘LIVE N LIVIN’ HIGHLIGHTING COLLABORATION OVER CONFRONTATION

“Dancehall is alive and well. Check the pulse. This album is one I hold very dear to my heart for many reasons. It’s the first album of mine being released off my own label, Dutty Rock Productions, and a body of work which has allowed me to work so closely with artists I revere in my genre.”

Grammy® Award-winning global megastar, philanthropist, Sean Paul release his seventh studio album – LIVE N LIVIN – arriving on all platforms March 12th. LIVE N LIVIN is produced by Dutty Rock Productions and distributed by ONErpm.

LIVE N LIVIN is now available HERE

LIVE N LIVIN features some of reggae and dancehall powerhouses the likes of Buju Banton, Damian “Jr Gong” Marley, Agent Sasco, Mavado and newcomers such as Govana, Chi Ching Ching, Intence, and several other artists that play a pivotal role and whose sound remains a cornerstone of the genre. With a collection of traditional and fresh sound of dancehall Live N Livin captures the essence of dancehall and the unity, which exists within the culture.

Dancehall has recorded tremendous success over the years, with amazing fusion offered by the likes of Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Sam Smith, and genres like Reggaeton and Afro Beats. The genre has continued to impact the world and Sean Paul aims to highlight the significance of dancehall while collaborating with different talented artists.

The 16-track album was produced with a collaboration over confrontation undertone, 15 collabs and one single from Sean Paul. In the midst of this great body of work highlighting dancehall from Jamaica, Ghanian dancehall artist Stonebwoy is also featured on the album on “Guns of Navarone” remix.

“Stonebwoy, very talented artist from Ghana who always pay homage to the dancehall genre, and visits the island of Jamaica. It was clear to me when he stated he wanted to be a part of this project I could not say no” says Sean Paul.

“Live N Livin is loaded with collaborations demonstrating to the world the versatility and excellency of Jamaican dancehall music. And most important, it demonstrates that unity can be achieved. Sean Paul could easily leaned back and collect, but he chose to fight for the genre he loves and address important issues that have stopped dancehall from reaching the top – where it belongs” Riddim Magazine (Ellen Kohlings & Pete Lilly)

With over one year at home, due to the pandemic, like many artists, Sean Paul has been unable to hit the stage and tour vigorously as he is used to. Using his time to record two albums, ‘Live N Livin’ & ‘Scorcha’ Sean Paul has partnered with Dreamstage and is set to perform virtually for his fans Live from Jamaica. Fans are in luck as they will “get to teleport to the Caribbean for feel-good music through Dreamstage’s superior hi-def visual virtual concert stage that brings dancehall ambassador Sean Paul and surprise musical guests into homes where fans can dance like no one’s watching in unison with others. He will perform live from the sandy beaches of Jamaica on Saturday, April 10 at 4:00pm EST.”

Dancehall Anthems – Kabaka Pyramid – Agent Sasco – Bugle

Dancehall Anthems - Kabaka Pyramid - Agent Sasco - Bugle

VP Records releases Dancehall Anthems, a set of new recordings that paints a 2020 portrait of classic Reggae and Dancehall Anthems from the golden era of the 70’s and 90’s. This project brings fresh perspectives and voices to timeless classics. Some of the compositions have a storied history with VP Records and others are meaningful to the genre.

The album, produced by veteran dancehall producer Jeremy Harding, features Kabaka Pyramid, Sean Paul, Beenie Man, Agent Sasco, Wayne Marshall, Ikaya, Ginjah, Runkus, Blvk H3ro, Bugle, Royal Blu, Naomi Cowan, and Kumar, taking on classic material from Yellowman, Michigan & Smiley, Ken Boothe, Tenor Saw, Papa San, Louie Culture, and others.

“Originally, this was going to be a VP Records 40th anniversary project, but it expanded, as I wanted to pay tribute to the history of dancehall in the broadest sense, reconsidering iconic songs and particularly the roots of the genre, including what played heavily on Soundsystems when I was growing up. I wanted to give the artists, new and veterans, the chance to put their spin on these classics,” said producer Harding.

The first tracks released from the album included Beenie Man’s “Mad Kings,” his update of Yellowman’s “Zungguzungguguzungguzeng.” This was followed by Kabaka Pyramid’s exceptional interpretation of Michigan & Smiley’s “Nice Up The Dance,” followed by Wayne Marshall’s tribute to Tenor Saw’s “Lots Of Sign,” and Runkus’s ode to Papa San’s “Strange.”

While the album features a variety of straight ahead covers, it also includes creative adaptions such as Sean Paul’s “Marijuana Mi Love,” based on Tiger’s “No Puppy Love,” featuring all new lyrics.

In addition to “Who Am I,” Jeremy Harding is known for Mr. Vegas’s “Nike Air” and Sean Paul’s “Infiltrate” (all on the Playground Riddim); and Elephant Man’s “Log On” and Tanto Metro and Devonte’s “Give It To Her” (both on the Liquid Riddim). Harding was Sean Paul’s manager through the apex of his career and produced three tracks on the platinum Dutty Rock album, the biggest selling title in VP Records’ history. More recently Harding produced “Heaven” for Jah9, found on her Note To Self album.

Harding has been a prominent guest on Jamaican television and other media platforms in recent years, giving his take on industry trends. He is known as one of the most innovative dancehall producers of the 1990s, helping to usher in a new era of music production in Jamaica as an early adopter of ProTools software now industry standards, as well as the still controversial Auto-Tune plug-in. He is one of the first examples of a DJ-turned-producer, now a standard music industry path, having started in college radio while studying at McGill University. He is a trained guitarist and has degrees from the Royal School Of Music London and Trebas Institute and is adjunct faculty in Reggae Studies at the University of the West Indies.
