Reggae Sumfest to Recognize Beres for Contribution to Jamaican music

“We at Reggae Sumfest are very pleased to be presenting this great reggae artiste and felt that he deserves to be recognised for his enormous contribution to the growth and development of our music. A Reggae Sumfest without Beres never truly feels complete,” Gourzong added.

Hammond, who is easily one of Jamaica’s most prolific singers ever and who has a massive fan base, will be making his return to the festival after a three-year hiatus.

Known for his soulful voice and eclectic lovers’ rock ballads, Hammond’s discography consists of at least 18 albums and six compilations.

He is expected to wow the Sumfest audience with his timeless hits, among them Step Aside, Can’t Stop A Man From Trying, Standing In My Way, and She Loves Me Now, to name a few.

“Beres loves to perform at Sumfest because of the exceptional reception he gets. It’s been a while since he has graced the stage at Catherine Hall, and he has made it clear that he will be delivering one of the best sets locally, come July,” said Hammond’s manager Mervis Walsh.

Reggae Sumfest, set for July 17-23 at Catherine Hall in Montego Bay, promises to be an explosive affair featuring top acts such as international sensations R Kelly and Nicki Minaj, as well as Jamaican stars CeCile, Tifa, Kip Rich, Protoje, Jah Cure, Half Pint, and Konshens.

Don Corleon Presents Dub In HD

1

Internationally acclaimed Jamaican producer Donovan “Don Corleon” Bennett unleashed his highly anticipated dub album aptly titled Dub In HD, on June 21, 2011, on his very own label, Don Corleon Records. Internationally-known and critically acclaimed for his work with pop stars such as Sean Paul, Rihanna and Keyshia Cole on Billboard chart-topping singles, as well as the who’s who in reggae and dancehall today, from Vybz Kartel to J Boog, Bennett is credited with keeping reggae music contemporary and on a competitive edge in the global music industry.

 Bennett’s vested efforts in keeping reggae on the musical forefront brings him full circle to dub, a subgenre of reggae that emerged in the 60′s and primarily consists of instrumental remixes of existing recordings. “I’m in love with music and the dub genre especially,” reveals Bennett. “People like the Mad Professor, King Tubby, Scientist and King Jammy really influenced me.”

Bennett yearned to learn from his dub heroes but was unable to do so and found himself watching them work in the studio via YouTube videos. After diligently studying their methods from their YouTube footage, Bennett was able to teach himself how to create dub, straight from the masters themselves. “This project is a real tribute to the forefathers of dub music and it is my way of keeping their music alive.”

The album consists of 10 tracks, which are all original Don Corleon productions including monster riddims Seasons and Changes, but are now composed in dub. It also includes tracks featuring artistswho appeared on the original riddims, thus Dub In HD sees appearances from reggae stars Buju Banton, Tarrus Riley, Jah Cure, Protoje, Natural Blacks and Jah9.

Dub in HD is distributed worldwide by all major digital retailers including iTunes and Amazon, and is also available on vinyl – the perfect platform for the resurrection of reggae’s renaissance format.
