Sean Paul is one of the latest dancehall artist to venture into producing with the release of his first riddim “Blaze Fia.”

According to a press release from the artist publicist, Sean Paul had the desire to produce some 16 years ago.

“It’s another part of my artistry,” said the Grammy-winning deejay who recently expanded his thirst for music by learning to play the guitar and drums.

Sean Paul had actually stepped out of the spotlight and behind the mixing board for his album Imperial Blaze which saw production work from Don Corleon, Coppershot, Craig ‘Leftside’ Parks, Jeremy Harding and Stephen ‘Di Genius’ McGregor.

After that experience, he decided to work with other artistes, producing a number of rhythms from one-drop to hip-hop and countless fusions.

“For his first rhythm release, however, he decided to stick to his true love — dancehall,” Headline Entertainment said. “Blaze Fia is a hard-core, old school dancehall vibe which features 18 artistes from veteran in the business Bounty Killer to newcomers such as Chino, Liquid and more. According to Sean Paul, he realises that the rhythm is jam-packed with artistes, but he really wants to get his work out there.”

Sean Paul Blaze Fia riddim features the likes of Elephant Man, Mr Vegas, Busy Signal, Assassin aka Agent Sasco, Ce’Cile, Timberlee, Laden, Hallow Point, Suku (Ward 21), Wayne Marshall, Kip Rich, Future Fambo and Tarrus Riley.
