Legendary Dancehall Icon Bounty Killer and acclaimed Billboard chart-topper, producer Rohan ‘Jah Snowcone’ Fuller have come together yet again and will be working on some projects together, aimed at bringing authentic dancehall to the mainstream once again..
The first of such projects will be the “Anti-biotic Riddim” which will officially be released this weekend, and from all indications thus far this will be sensational.
“The Bounty Killer on this riddim is the most anticipated song,” said Jah Snowcone who produced Sean Paul billboard chart topping hit “Temperature”, and Beenie Man’s current hit song “Dweet Again” on the Mercury Riddim.
For Jah Snowcone, who’s working relationship with Bounty Killer spans over a decade, and has produced songs like “Mystery” on the rice n peas riddim, “I Am Who I Am”, “Killa Is A Killa” on the beach riddim, “Summertime” on the gallop riddim to name a few, Jah Snowcone feels this project is reminiscent the 90′s era. “This feels like Bounty in di 90′s, and the anti-biotic. riddim is 100% dancehall. We have Bounty, Bling Dawg,Spragga, Assassin, Ele, Vegas along with young and upcoming artistes Stylish & Savage”.
Bounty Killer, who earlier this year was voted unanimously the “Guinness Greatest Dancehall Icon” currently holds the #1 spot on TVJ’s ER TOP TEN with a collaboration effort titled “Go Hard” featuring his “estranged” son Vybz Kartel along with Junior Gong, Wayne Marshall, Aidonia, Assassin. He has also recorded and released “War Fi God”, produced by Dreday, ft. Kiprich & Kalado along with “Run Out” ft. Bling Dawg and “Badmind Dem A Pree” ft. I-Octane.
But, if we are to go by recent indications from fans and practioners of the industry, Bounty’s new song “No Long Talking” on the anti-biotic riddim seems to be the formula the dancehall industry has been waiting for. The song epitomizes dancehall in it’s purest form, and Bounty feels the reception the song has been getting thus far (though not officially released) is testiment that the “uncontamined” artform still has mass and wide appeal. Asked why he thinks there so much appeal for the song, Bounty says, “Everything the lyrics the style the flow the tone of voice the melody and the riddim of course raw dancehall vibes”.
The song was previewed on Hot 97 recently and the reaction from listeners and in studio djs speaks for itself.
