Deejay Cutty Ranks is coming Full Blast with the release of his new album of that name under his own Philip Music Label in partnership with Independent Distribution Collective. The highly respected veteran artiste gives a gritty take on the reality of living in urban Jamaica on the title song (which has an accompanying video), Cutty bringing a strong message of non-violence and justice.
Collaborating with Cutty on the album are Beres Hammond (Way To Go), Luciano (Long Life) and late veteran female American R&B vocalist Gwen Guthrie of Ain't Nuttin Going On But The Rent fame (My Girl), showing a softer side to Cutty Ranks.
Other tracks include the lovers' rock track In My Placewith up-and-coming singer Hyh Volume, plus the high-energy dance-infused Take It Away. It is Cutty Ranks' first full album in a decade and an extensive schedule of live performances is set for North America, Europe, Japan and the Caribbean to support the release.
Cutty Ranks' most successful album, The Stopper, was released in the 1990s.
