The rhythm continues Chimney’s streak of contemporary reggae releases, featuring singles by Tarrus Riley, Chronixx and Kabaka Pyramid, Jah Cure, Zagga, Tessanne Chin, Singing Sweet and Kibaki, I-Octane, Demarco, Christopher Martin, Kelissa, and Bramma.
Speaking on their project, Jordan McClure said: “Rising Sun is an acoustic-guitar-driven production with one drop reggae influences but a modern touch to appeal to both older and younger listeners alike. The instrumentation has an uplifting and happy vibe, which translated into artistes naturally choosing to write songs of inspiration or love to the sounds we created.”
McClure spoke about the track Anything’s Possible, by current NBC’s The Voice contestant Tessanne Chin:
“After two years of working on reggae productions; Island Vibes, Chillspot and Tropical Escape rhythms, we found that we were ready to work with Tessanne Chin. My production partner David Hayle and I have always been fans of her talent. We’re happy that she fell in love with the Rising Sun rhythm’s instrumental and chose to recordAnything’s Possible. It’s an inspiring song that we did with Tessanne over a year ago, and it coincidentally relates to her being the first and only Jamaican artiste on The Voice.”
Other motivational songs on the rhythm are Jah Cure’s Better Way, My Day by Tarrus Riley, and Yes I Can by Christopher Martin.
Chimney Records’ flagship artiste Zagga makes a big splash on the project with his moving My Destination. Demarco tackles social commentary with It’s Not Right, while Kelissa highlights societal breakdown in civics through her song Slow Down.
Lovers will find tales of adoration in We Found Love by I-Octane and Bramma’s Wah Gwan Mi Darling.
Collaborations on the release are Mi Alright by leading young acts Chronixx and Kabaka Pyramid, with the other being Kibaki and Singing Sweet’s inner-city eye-opener One MoreDay. Mi Alright is an Afrocentric song of elevation.
Rising Sun will be available for download on iTunes on October 29, 2013 and will include the rhythm’s 11 songs and also the instrumental. Anything’s Possible has already been released on the music platform.
