Brand New Production Features Songs from Wayne Wonder, Romain Virgo, Gappy Ranks and Super Criss
Mighty Crown is quickly establishing themselves as producers of fine Reggae music with the formal release of “Love Feeling Riddim” on their Lifestyle Records imprint this week in iTunes. The internationally acclaimed sound system, managed by Caribbean entertainment outfit Irish and Chin, makes musical magic on the “One Drop” style riddim, which to date features the likes of Wayne Wonder, Romain Virgo, Gappy Ranks and Super Criss (of Japanese group Fireball). The artists perfectly flavor the production with their unique styles and vocal delivery, spawning an incredible ‘Love Feeling’ for all listeners.
Produced by Mighty Crown selector and co-founder Sami-T, the “Love Feeling Riddim” was a result of his strong love for all things Reggae music and good relationships with the artists on the project. The charismatic Sami-T declares, “I see the ‘Love Feeling Riddim’ as a real grown up production. It’s centered on man to woman relationships and big people things that we can relate to in life.” From the young Romain Virgo’s rich vocals on “Never Seen Your Type” and the thrilling chords of legendary crooner Wayne Wonder on “Left with a Broken Heart” to U.K.’s divinely talented Gappy Ranks on “Just a Little Bit Longer” and Japanese singing sensation Super Criss on “Whole New World,” the “Love Feeling Riddim” yields an incredible, soothing listening experience.
What Sami-T describes as a “lover’s rock kind of vibe,” “Love Feeling Riddim” marks the beginning of a riddim production movement for Mighty Crown. Rising to fame as a World Clash Champion sound, Mighty Crown is known for sensational dub plates. According to Sami-T, production comes naturally for Mighty Crown. He says “cutting dub plates or specials requires the same skill, creativity and good ear for music as producing…in fact, it is producing!”
The “Love Feeling Riddim” is Mighty Crown’s first “official” riddim production to feature non-Japanese artists. Although the sound produced isolated songs for top Reggae acts previously, they were unreleased. Sami-T scored an underground hit with “Surfers Anthem,” which he produced for JBoog in 2013. Mighty Crown has lots in store for Reggae fans in 2014, including more stellar music productions, touring with artists and of course, world touring. Through “Crown Revival,” Sami-T says Mighty Crown will celebrate foundation music and the essence of old time sound system culture “inna modern style.” Reggae music sounds and fans, get your taste of the “Love Feeling Riddim” today.
