Kabaka Pyramid meets Federation Sound “Immaculate” Mixtape

As a tumultuous 2020 comes to an end, reggae star Kabaka Pyramid and famed producer and DJ Max Glazer are gifting us with a remarkable body of work with the “IMMACULATE” mixtape.

Boasting an impressive track listing of 27 new and recently released songs, as well as a few customized dubs, “IMMACULATE” features notable collaborations from both established and rising stars of reggae; Namely multi-Grammy winner Damian Marley, Runkus, Pressure Busspipe, Dre Island, Royal Blu, Medisun and Jane Macgizmo

The brainchild of Kabaka and Max Glazer, the “IMMACULATE” mixtape aims to represent the full spectrum of Kabaka’s talent through his prolific lyrics and versatility whether “Kontraband pt 2”, “Trample Dem”, “Nice Up The Dance” or “Mama Earth”. “It was a great experience working on Immaculate with Kabaka. We’ve known each other for years, but this is the first time we have actually worked on a project together and this man is a lyrical force of nature. The only way to describe Kabaka Pyramid is, of course, accurate… and immaculate.” – Max Glazer

Speaking on this exciting project, Kabaka related, “Immaculate is 58 minutes of pure fire and lyricism. It’s possibly my most high energy release to date and even though the message is a must, and these are serious times we in, Immaculate also shows some of the lighter sides to the pyramid. Max really put it together like a classic mixtape, real dj vibes, and it reminds me of my high school days making mix CD’s for our sound Time Bomb. I’m just glad the world is getting to hear all these songs I’ve been going crazy over all year!”

The project is due for release on October 16th, 2020 on the VP Records label.

Previous releases from Dancehall Anthems include King Beenie Man “Mad Kings” in honor of King Yellowman, Kabaka Pyramid “Nice Up The Dance” in honor of Michigan and Smiley, and Wayne Marshall “Lots of Sign” in honor of Tenor Saw.

Collectively, all previously released titles have dominated the radio airwaves worldwide and have radio presenters such as Lee Major from New York’s Earth Ruler Sound call “Nice Up The Dance” a ‘classic remake that in itself has become a modern classic.’ Richard Banton from Toronto’s VIBE 105 FM says the project ‘is an anticipated release’ and King Lagazee from Ghana’s HITZ 102.9 FM agrees that fans will ‘have this project on repeat.’

Wayne Marshall – Lots of Sign – Dancehall Anthems 2020

Wayne Marshall - Lots of Signs - Dancehall Anthems 2020

There is no better compliment an artist can give than to cover a nostalgic song. Wayne Marshall, teaming with Jeremy Harding, covers the classic “Lots of Sign” originally performed by Tenor Saw in 1985.

Re-created especially for the Dancehall Anthems compilation project, the track holds evocative value for being a hit record at the time of its original release. Sound System operators and Radio presenters deemed the song an instantaneous classic which preserved its future value. Today Wayne Marshall brings the track back to the fore adding his stand-out voice which compliments Harding’s enhanced sound.

When asked about re-introducing this track to the Reggae landscape and the attraction it holds for younger audiences, Jeremy Harding said “this is a very well executed refresh of a Dancehall classic. Tenor Saw is a challenging artist to emulate so Wayne Marshall did a really good job of being inspired by the soulfulness of the record and putting his own unique brand of soul on it.”

Feedback to the project indicates that fans appreciate the direction Jeremy and the artists have taken the genres golden treasures. “Mad Kings” by King of the Dancehall Beenie Man, was a re-take on King Yellowman’s “Zungguzungguguzungguzeng” and “Nice Up The Dance” by Kabaka Pyramid is a re-take on the classic 1979 song of the same name by Michigan and Smiley.

Dancehall Anthems is a collection of new recordings of classic reggae and dancehall songs that span from the 1960’s to 1990’s otherwise known as the golden era. Dancehall Anthems features Kabaka Pyramid, Sean Paul, Beenie Man, Agent Sasco, Wayne Marshall, Runkus, Blvk H3ro, Bugle, and Royal Blu among others, taking on classic material from Yellowman, Michigan & Smiley, Ken Boothe, Tenor Saw, Papa San, Louie Culture, et al. The first track from the album was Beenie Man’s “Mad Kings” which was a take on Yellowman’s “Zungguzungguguzungguzeng.”

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.
