Diseases Riddim Mix | Reggae Lover by Highlanda Sound | Episode 66

The Diseases riddim, which is sometimes referred to or known as the Golden Hen riddim is featured here.

I call it the Worries in the Dance Riddim, but the original version of the instrumental was used for the song entitled “Mad Mad Mad” produced in the 1960s by Coxsone Dodd for his Studio One label featuring Alton Ellis on the main vocals. Therefore the original name of this riddim is Mad Mad Mad.

This mix starts with Mad Mad Mad by Alton Ellis and goes all the way to Sizzla in the end. Thank you for listening to the #ReggaeLoverPodcast

STATEMENT FROM BUSY SIGNAL

STATEMENT FROM BUSY SIGNAL
May 26, 2012

In this a time of reflection, I would like to thank my fans who have supported me through this difficult situation and who will continue to support me. Your messages and prayers via social networks and via members of my team are what have brought light to the darkness of my cell.

I have never admitted that I was involved in any drug deal or drug arrangement. I waived my rights to an extradition trial here in Jamaica, so that I can return to the US to face a charge of absconding bail ONLY. This incident took place ten (10) years ago before I even considered becoming an artiste.

As you can understand, this is a difficult time for me, however during my time away, my fans will not be left with a void – there are several unreleased tracks that will definitely keep you “busy” until my return. I recently released my album Reggae Music Again, which debuted at number 5 on the Billboard Reggae charts. On my recent tour of Amsterdam and Paris, we shot elements for the video to the title track of the album. It features cameos from Marcia Griffiths, Queen Ifrica and Anthony B and that will be released in a couple of weeks.

For my fans overseas, my management team has been in dialogue with promoters who have all shown their support for me and my situation and for that I thank them.

For my family, you have stood by me through thick and thin and I know you will continue to do so. In my time away, I have made the necessary arrangements with my management team to have you taken care of until my return.

To my band. Hi-Voltage, you have toured the world with me and have been a tower of strength. Continue to make good music until I return, cause the mission will continue.

I know that my facebook page has been inactive for a while, but, starting this week, Shane Brown, head of Juke Boxx management team, will assume direct control of my twitter account – @busysignal_turf and my facebook page – http://www.facebook.com/OneBusySignal. I will be kept updated so please continue to send your love, support and prayers through these channels, as they keep me going.

To my legal team, KD Knight, Bert Samuels and Roxanne Mars, your positive words and unfailing belief and support in me and my case have made this situation a little easier to bear. Thank you very much.

Finally my friends, my fans and my family, thank you again from the depths of my heart. Please keep me in your prayers. “We not going down, cause God alone controls my destiny”

Backyard TV and Reggae Star, Anthony B Present: “Reap What You Sew”

1


“Reap What You Sew” is a musical campaign inspired by, Anthony B’s new single “Dun Wit Di War”, and is designed to promote peace and education in Jamaica.  Anthony B message is that peace and prosperity in JA can be harnessed through the productive actions and efforts of conscious Reggae artists from Jamaica and around the world.

“Reap What You Sew” features Reggae artists who have the vision, talent and dedication; and a desire to help the people of Jamaica and bring peace and prosperity throughout the nation.  The “Reap What You Sew” campaign was created by Howell Allen, from Backyard TV, in his effort to bring Reggae artist together to unite and fight for whats right to bring peace and prosperity to Jamaica. We owe a debt of gratitude to Reggae Star, Anthony B who inspired the movement through his song “Dun Wit The War”.  Anthony B was also kind enough to offer his talent and time to make this project a reality.  We hope in the future we will be able to mobilize more artists, activists, entertainers, organizations and educators who understand that we are powerful role models and get onboard.  We have created a website where we will be posting stories, materials and information, and share our personal hopes and stories in our efforts to bring awareness and provide lots of information. We urge everyone to spread the word by putting video messages on Youtube, Myspace, Facebook, Twitter and others to make sure everyone hear about “Reap What You Sew”.

The “Reap What You Sew” Movement is rooted in the Reggae community with a mission to diminish violence in Jamaica through education, music, and direct action. The “Reap What You Sew” project will achieves its mission by using fund-raising, and media campaigns to heighten the awareness of the effects of violence, create multi-generational dialogue and supplies parent and youth oriented educational tools for conflict resolution. We are calling upon the mass media to address the images they put forth. We are calling for balance! Balance within ourselves, in the media, and in our communities.  The “Dun Wit Di War” song featuring Anthony-B and Riquey-B will be used to introduce “Reap What You Sew” and is designed to bring awareness to the campaign.

Violence is an unjust or unwarranted exertion of force or power. Violence is the diplomacy of the incompetent. Violence is unnecessary and costly. Violence kills what it intends to create. Violence is any activity that is consciously used to hurt oneself, another individual or group of people, whether through mind, body or spirit. “The question is no longer between violence and non-violence it is between non-violence and non-existence.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The popularity of this song will give rise to a community of conscious Reggae artist, and continue to develop all-star projects that will become a legendary Reggae peace anthem series, “Reap What You Sew”.  There will also be a digital campaign with free mp3 downloads and fund-raising events.  The proceeds will be used to develop various community programs in Jamaica and promote all things, which make it cool to ‘Stop The Violence.’
