TRUCKBACK RECORDS PRESENTS THE DASHBOARD RIDDIM, NOW AVAILABLE FOR PREVIEW AND DOWNLOAD
lt (Kingston, Jamaica - March 2, 2009) TruckBack Records is pleased to announce the release of its latest riddim project, The DashBoard Riddim. Now available digitally on I-Tunes and e-tailers worldwide the Dashboard will be available at the end of March on 7" via Energy Beat Distribution in Kingston, Jamaica. The Dashboard follows up on the widely acclaimed Clutch (2008), Ole Axle (2008) and Gearbox (2008) Riddims. Led off by the Energy God and Grammy nominee, Elephant Man ("Nah Beg Dem Nutten"), the Dashboard combines a driving dancehall beat with TruckBack's catchy melodies and heavy reggae bass lines that will ram any dance floor. The Dashboard also includes respected lyricists and international stars Bugle, Erup, Anthony B and Mr. Lexx. Christopher Martin (2005 Digicel Rising Star), Flippa Mafia (2009 Trendsetter Of The Year), Monster Hemp Higher (General B, Roundhead and Ghost) and Buju Banton's protégé, New Kidz, bring additional credibility while newcomers Déjà Vu and Deh Deh offer a new style and flavor for the dancehall massive. Truckback is also proud to offer two bonus tracks on the Dashboard from Christian artists Goddy Goddy and Ryan Mark.
Erup, one of Jamaica's brightest young stars, whose song on the Gearbox riddim (Click My Finger) recently spent a number of weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 R&B/Hip Hop Chart utilizes the most of his subtle energy and raw talent once again on "Mek Noise", a track which is bound to keep Erup in the spotlight for years to come. Boasting what is quickly becoming one of dancehall's most iconic voices, Bugle delivers his signature laid-back style and lyrics prowess to "Fluffy", a tribute to his favorite kind of woman. Anthony B, probably the most consistent reggae artist of his generation, doesn't lose a step as he teases listeners with his vocal skills on "Position". And Flippa Mafia, who burst on the dancehall in 2008 with "Dem Yah" is included here with his track, "Wasp". Jamaica's 'rising star' and R&B influenced Christopher Martin dips into dancehall innuendo with the playful confidence of a veteran on "Want Mi Ting" and with "Ghetto Party" New Kidz demonstrates why Buju Banton has been grooming this artist over many others. The newest stars on the rise in the TruckBack family, the sibling duo called Deh Deh, and Deja Vu waste no time in making statements on their first TruckBack productions. "Nah Drop Off" from Deh Deh reflects the ease with which the two brothers are able to flow and Déjà Vu's "Dat Mi Seh" has already been receiving some of the most spins from Jamaican radio deejays of any tune on the riddim. Monster Hemp Higher members General B, Roundhead and Ghost bring three the hard way on "Badder Than Dem" while Ghost steps out on his own with "Don't Call Me Back".
TruckBack Records producers Steve and Adrian Locke were recently nominated for various year-end awards including Producer of the Year, Riddim of the Year (GearBox), and Song of the Year (Click My Finger). With the release of the DashBoard to praises locally and internationally, 2009 promises to be another year in which TruckBack accumulates significant mileage on dance floors and airwaves worldwide!
