Dancehall star Sean Paul continues his producing gig with his latest riddim “Material,” the follow up to his summer debut riddim “Blaze Fia.”
Material riddim features two tracks from Sean Paul, Roll With The Don and Call On Jah featuring veteran deejay Spragga Benz. The riddim also features tracks from Wayne Marshall, Tami Chynn, Laden, Ce’Cile, Trevor Offkey, Voicemail, Mr. Vegas and Future Fambo among others.
Both the Blaze Fia and Material beats were released on Sean Paul’s Dutty Rock label.
The Material Riddim has already drawn positive responses from leading sound system selectors such as Garfield ‘Geefus’ Parkinson of Stone Love and Coppershot’s Sanjay Smith.
“Is a bad rhythm, worse like how Fambo hot right now. It jus’ release but I expect it to kick off,” said Geefus.
Sanjay also expects big things from the Material Riddim. he said: “It hasn’t really bus’ on air waves as yet, but from what I’ve heard, I’m impressed. It’s not like anything that’s out there now.”
Sean Paul shoots the medley video for the Material Riddim this weekend in Kingston. The three-part, 10-minute medley video will be directed by Mykal Cushnie with Zsolt Haulpa from Canada as director of photography. It also features choreography by Tanisha Scott.
In addition to producing beats, Sean Paul has been recording songs for his upcoming album, due early 2012. His song with American singer Alexis Jordan, Got 2 Luv U entered the Billboard Hot 100 charts at number 93 during the summer. The track also did well throughout Europe, reaching number one in Switzerland and peaking at number two in France.
