Busy Signal – Bruk Dung Di Bed – Tri-Circle Riddim

Busy Signal - Bruk Dung Di Bed - Tri-Circle Riddim

Jamaican dancehall superstar Busy Signal continues his hot streak this summer with the release of “Bruk Dung Di Bed,” the lead single off the brand new Tri-Circle Riddim EP (via Nuh Rush Records / Tuff Gong International).

The official video, directed by Dameon Gayle and released on Busy Signal’s YouTube channel, finds Busy surrounded by a bevy of beautiful females at a Miami high-rise. They ride a packed elevator up to a private penthouse suite, where our dancehall hero confidently choreographs his new friends through familiar territory on the balcony, in the shower, and of course, in the bedroom:

Wine it up fi mi
Get tough fi mi
Don’t left me out
Cah mi need your company Mek di jaw dem bounce
Left to the right
Jiggle mek your bumper jump fi mi

“Bruk Dung Di Bed,” produced by Nuh Rush Records chief Junior Brown, brings a fresh sound, but follows in the long tradition of Busy Signal songs where the “Bedroom Bully” deejay expresses his appreciation for, and demonstrates his prowess with, the opposite sex. “This track is just highlighting the girls who are vibrant, energetic, and entertaining,” Busy told The FADER.

Also featured on the Tri-Circle Riddim is Spanish Town native Jovi DiPree, who composed the music and lent his vocals and songwriting talents to the title track. As a songwriter, composer, and engineer, the multi-skilled artist has already made a name for himself in musical circles collaborating with top tier Jamaican artists like Spice, Dexta Daps, and Vybz Kartel, among others.

Busy Signal, who is currently enjoying a steady stream of hits circulating in the dancehall, has collaborated with Junior Brown and Nuh Rush Records a number of times on tracks like “Girl You A Champion,” “More Strength” and most recently on the laidback summer vibes of “Margarita.”

“Working with Nuh Rush Records has always been a pleasure. Great team to work with and dedicated to the furtherance of the music. We have a lot more projects together that will be released in due time,” said Busy of the the fruitful relationship.

Busy Signal, whose government name is Reanno Gordon, hails from Saint Ann Parish in Jamaica. He is known for his international reggae hits like “Come Over” and “One More Night,” as well as dancehall staples like “Bedroom Bully” and crossover collaborations like his appearance on Major Lazer’s “Watch Out For This (Bumaye).” Current tracks making noise on the scene include the Afrobeats tune “Bad Gyal” and his collaboration “Bang Bung” alongside the legendary Bounty Killer.

Busy Signal – Margarita

Busy Signal - Margarita

As the season heats up, Jamaican dancehall superstar Busy Signal serves up “Margarita,” the quintessential ode to everyone’s favorite summertime cool-off beverage. Busy Signal, ever the ice cold lyricist, transports the listener to a tropical paradise with the laidback party vibes of his brand new single, out now via Nuh Rush Records / Gorilla Music Source, distributed by Tuff Gong International. On his latest tune, the hitmaker deejay’s distinct vocals are echoed by steel pan phrases over the sparsely arranged dancehall rhythm produced by Nuh Rush chief Junior Brown and Gorilla Music President Reanno Gordon (pka Busy Signal).
Busy acknowledges the beautiful simplicity of it all on the tune’s sing-along chorus:
Margarita
A few shots with ice Feeling so nice
A the Caribbean style Everybody get wild enjoy Margarita
On each steel pan flourish, you can picture ice cubes hitting the glass as Busy Signal’s signature rasp blends the whole concoction into the flavorful “Margarita.”
Handcrafted for your beach or backyard bbq playlist, Busy breaks down the origins of the concept:
“‘Margarita’ came about one night after I had been in the studio recording. I stepped out to grab something from the kitchen where I saw a Margarita bottle and immediately the idea to write the song came. I went back in the studio where the team and I started to structure the beat and then I recorded the song that same night. This song to me carries a fun vibe. It’s a drink that a lot of people like so the idea came having a tropical vibe with a tropical sound for people to now enjoy the music while having the drink. I believe that ‘Margarita”will represent a wider range of ethnicity as well as the drink itself, bringing fun and a nice summer vibe — just having good time.”
Busy simultaneously released a companion lyric video on his YouTube channel to match the chill vibes of the song. The fun new animated visuals bring “Margarita” to life, courtesy of Damaniac Visualz.
Busy Signal, who is currently enjoying a steady stream of hits circulating in the dancehall, has collaborated with Junior Brown and Nuh Rush Records a number of times in recent years on tracks like “Girl You A Champion” and “More Strength.”
“Working with Nuh Rush Records has always been a pleasure, great team to work with and dedicated to the furtherance of the music. We have a lot more projects together that will be released in due time,” said Busy on the the fruitful relationship.
“We hope fans will enjoy this track and feel the vibes and energy we felt from the time we started recording to the moment it was completed,” added No Rush chief Junior Brown.

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.

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.

Vershon – Only One EP

Vershon - Only One EP

The brightest UK x JA link up arrives as Vershon releases 6-track ‘Only One’ EP, marking an evolution of sounds and styles between the two counties with the artist at the helm. With a bountiful collection of music releases to his name already, tipping over 11 million streams, Vershon’s visionary musical flair explores two countries rich with musical heritage and buzzing with talent. To celebrate the EP launch, Vershon threw an exclusive online party, hosted by BBC Radio 1Xtra DJ Seani B, and featured Trillary Banks and executive producers The FaNaTiX as he delved in to conversation about the creation of the project, giving fans an upfront listen of previously unreleased tracks.

Ahead of the EP release, Vershon, who has previously been tipped for stardom on the BBC Radio 1Xtra’s ‘Hot For’ list, dropped introductory track ‘Original’ before teaming up with UK rap star Chip on ‘Reality’. Most recently his single ‘Stick By Me’, co-written by BRIT & Ivor Novello award winning singer/songwriter Plan B, premiered with Wonderland Magazine and was also chosen by Yasmin Evans as her record of the week on BBC Radio 1Xtra as the “dancehall-inspired rhythm with smooth vocals and romantic lyricism” (Won-derland), grasped hold of its listeners with loving intent.

Executively produced by UK production trio The FaNaTiX, the ‘Only One’ EP musically ex-poses Vershon in varying perspectives. From the bold, bass-heavy menacing tone of ‘Original’ that insists on taking the rap capabilities of Vershon seriously, to the senti-mental undertones of ‘Stick By Me’ that provide a counter-balance of emotion and per-fectly crafted melody, the 6-track record is an arrival at an organic, meaningful and careful-ly crafted destination. Highlighted further by the magnificent feature list, which includes Busy Signal on ‘Thingz’ and Y Cee on ‘Shake It Up’, the instrumental elements stirred in with the wealth of artists delivering an array of genre experience sees the records deco-rated with chinks of dancehall, soca, R&B, grime and afrobeats

Celebrating his unique, equivocal style, ‘Only One’ masterfully balances Vershon’s credi-bility with an international pop sensibility, bridging the gap between London and Jamai-ca assisted by a carefully curated line-up of contributors.

Romain Virgo Ft. Busy Signal – Pray

Romain Virgo Ft. Busy Signal - Pray

AN old-fashioned studio brainstorming session resulted in Pray , the new song from Romain Virgo featuring Busy Signal. Produced by Kirk Bennett for Kirkledove Records, it was released in January.

Bennett, considered the top session drummer in Jamaica, told the Jamaica Observer that he created the rhythm last year with Virgo in mind. It evolved into an inspirational single “between two musical brothers”.

According to Bennett, in the age of the novel coronavirus, songs like Pray are critical.

“It’s a good vibe dat everybody needs…intervention. Prayer is important every day in our life for protection an’ we need healing right now,” he said.

Pray is the latest collaboration between Bennett and the two artistes. He has produced songs by both, and played drums on hit singles by Virgo ( Mi Caan Sleep) and Busy Signal ( Come Over).

Bennett credits their relationship for Pray coming out as it did.

“Me an’ Romain were in di studio vibing an’ Romain came up with some melodies an’ thing, an wi jus’ lay di tracks with some good energy.

Couple of months later Busy, who is like mi brother, I said, ‘Yow! I have dis track an’ I would like yuh to be on it because it’s showing a positive message to di world,’ “ he recalled.

Pray is among a flow of releases from Kirkledove Records. Last year, Bennett released two self-produced EPs — Rolling and Straight 4 To The Crown. He also has a single, Look Gud Body, on which he plays drums and sings.

The Trelawny-born Bennett has established himself as dancehall/reggae’s premier drummer. He held the drum roll for Beres Hammond’s Harmony House band for 17 years and is currently a member of Busy Signal’s band.

His lengthy credits include songs like I Feel Good by Hammond, Tarrus Riley’s Lion Paw, Thank You Mama and S olid As A Rock (Sizzla), and the Nesbeth anthem, My Dream.
