New reggae sensation Nature, has recorded a dancehall track, ‘No Guns Around’, produced by Downsound Records execs Scatta Burrell and Joseph Bagdonavich.
Nature, who burst onto the local music scene with World Peace, Trying Man and Revolution, is seen more as reggae-oriented artistes.
However, having been raised in the volatile area of Glendovon, St James, he has the unfortunate past of being exposed to crime and violence.
knock for music
This prompted the singer, André Ellis, to record the track on a dancehall beat instead, the preferred genre for most youths with a knack for music.
The song is already making a massive impact in key dancehall circles, on radio stations and Europe, where the label’s marketing director, Sean ‘Contractor’ Edwards, continues his summer-long music tour.
The quiet-going Nature, said he is pleased that the song has so far received positive feedback, particularly among young audiences.
“My music is to teach and inspire everyone. So, if it means I have to venture into another genre to achieve that, then so be it. I am very pleased with the reaction that the song has got so far, a lot of youths have expressed their liking for the song when they see me on the street,” he said.
Nature’s rise in the past year continued this summer at Reggae Sumfest when he made an impressive performance on International 1 and the JCDC Jamaica Independence Day Concert in Montego Bay, as well as The Marcus Garvey Day Tribute Festival in St Mary.
His latest music video, for song Revolution, has continued to climb charts locally. The video enjoys the number-one spot on CVM TV’s Hitlist.
