Triple Grammy award-winning artiste Damian Marley, is truly 'setting up shop' with collaborations with a mixture of artistes having recently partnered with Skrillex, Cypress Hill and Busy Signal.
In Mek It Bun Dem, Damian Marley lays his flavour down on a uniquereggae-dubstep rhythm from internationally acclaimed producer Skrillex. The song's flow-filled style is very appealing as it invokes a slow, spicy rock from its listeners. The track introduces dubstep to the Jamaican massive and proves to be a good 'jam' to take a listen to.
He and Busy Signal have remixing AlBorosie's song, Kingston Town, for a slightly faster rhythm and a mixture of their two styles to complete a very 'conscious' song. The remix is a social commentary, as expressed when Marley sings, "Dem a war ova turf like nothing else matters, pity them nuh know life has much more to offer." The song is relatively new and is a great addition to the reggae superstar's collection of hot 2012 hits.
Having previously collaborated with Cypress Hill on the track, Ganja Bus, Damian Marley has voiced with the group on a new single Can't Keep Me Down.
The artiste has been working closely with his family from Ghetto Youths International which boasts a collection of revolutionary artistes like Julian and Stephen Marley, Jo Mersa, Black Am I and Christopher Ellis.
Damian Marley has had a busy schedule to match the recent barrage of hits, added to the artiste's repertoire. Jr Gong is scheduled to perform at two signature Jamaica50 events as his Reggae Sumfest performance will light up the stage on Saturday, July 21 followed by a performance at the O2 Arena in London slated for Thursday, July 26.
The artiste delivered an explosive performance at the H2O Music Festival in Dallas, Texas, in the company of fellow international superstars Snoop Dogg and Yelawolf last month. He also performed at the FAM (Food, Art and Music) festival in Guyana in May.
