Long Beach, CA (PressExposure) May 16, 2014 -- The record label known as Stride Music Production has released their latest reggae music LP, "Drum Stick Riddim." The record comprises 10 original reggae tracks for an approximate total listening time of 40 minutes. It is a compilation album showcasing a wide spread of authentic island groove, including the talents of Jimmy Riley, Ras Fraser Jr, Mr. Fre-ssh, Eudecous, Lavaah Goodaz, Half Pint, Lady G, Pam Hall, Lutan Fyah, and Ras Ghandi. "Drum Stick Riddim" by Stride Music Production has been distributed to over 750 retailers online worldwide.
"Drum Stick Riddim" is a legitimate return to roots reggae traditions and principles. Songs like "Where There's a Will" and "Let No One Stop You" are uplifting and empowering in ways only reggae music can provide, while tracks such as "International Suffering," "Roots and Culture," and "First Commandment" remind humanity that there are no divisions between people but the ones evildoers imagine for us. "Mi Life," "Move On" and "Roll On" are true sounds of independence, while "This Is Love" and "One Away Soldier" are fine representations of the contemporary reggae sound at its best.
The record is perhaps most notable for its expertly balanced blend of traditional roots and contemporary reggae. Certain elements of dancehall occasionally appear without obscuring the overall roots ambience and reggae sound. Most importantly, its overarching tone is one which will please listeners of any genre of music.
Stride Music Production is based in the Dunbeholden District of Greater Portmore in St. Catherine, Jamaica. The production company prides itself on creating and making available roots reggae from the locale where the heart of reggae music beats stronger than anywhere else in the world. Fans of such homegrown artists and dancehall heroes as Kabaka Pyramid, Chronixx, Konshens, Darrio, Teetimus and Vybz Kartel are certain to be greatly enthused by this new offering by Jamaica's own Stride Music Production record label.
"Drum Stick Riddim" by Stride Music Production is available online worldwide.
