Live reggae sound thrives on ‘Chessboxin’ project
Internationally acclaimed producer DJ Fyah Fashion and world-renowned guitarist Paul 'Titus' Green have collaborated on a new reggae project.
The Chessboxin rhythm features a plethora of known reggae acts and new voices that complement the project.
The artistes featured include Lutan Fyah, Dami Knight, Kristine Alicia, Tasha T, Sacryfyce, Kaibanon, Thriller U, Pressure Busspipe and Sizzla.
The project itself was geared at giving listeners positive vibration through clean, authentic music which mirrors the motto of the executive producers, R.A.R Productions.
"The world needs this positive, clean motivation right now and Chessboxin gives that vibe and energy. The project is different from the other albums we have released because this is a hard-driving musical reggae rhythm, while the others were smoother reggae rhythms. This was also the first time we recorded songs with Sizzla, Pressure Busspipe and Thriller U," Fyah Fashion said.
Green and Fyah Fashion have been working together for more than 10 years after they collaborated on the Sunrise Boulevard rhythm.
Working on this new live project was therefore not a difficult choice. The project itself is also laced with live musicians which makes it stand out from many juggling rhythms.
"I have to mention the musicians, because the rhythm wouldn't sound so great without them. The bassline was played by Donovan 'Bassy' Belnavis, Wade Johnson on keyboards, Paul 'Titus' Green on guitars and keyboards, and I programmed the drums and percussion. This is what makes the Chessboxin riddim special," Fyah Fashion said.
