Jah Cure Adds 'Producer' To His Skill Set

 International reggae star Jah Cure has decided to add to his lists of skills and credits the title of producer as he has recently been delving into production on a number of his recent recordings.

"We plan to include one or two of my own compositions on the album as well as release some as stand alone singles", says Cure.

The Artiste who has been known for hits including Love Is, True Reflections, Call On Me, and the increasingly popular Unconditional Love, has recently come back from a successful tour of Europe and has not lost any time returning to the studio accompanied by his supporting band.

The artiste says this latest move is a step he decided to take in order to infuse some more of his musical tastes into his tracks: “I have been in the music business for a long time and after so many years I have now decided to revisit the original and authentic sounds of roots rocking reggae music and as such bring in elements such as live horns and percussion in these sessions. Reggae is now being mixed with Hip Hop and many other genres and we just want to bring back some of the traditional niceness.”

So far, working out of Big Yard and Tuff Gong Studios, Jah Cure has recorded several live tracks which have been mixed and are ready for vocals. He says: “The tracks comprise of traditional reggae beats with hints of old school reggae techniques such as horns and other instruments which are not used as often these days.”

Jah Cure also says that this new turn can only be positive for the music: “Reggae music is constantly evolving but we have to be careful that we don’t move too far away from the founding principles of the genre. We don’t plan to just do one sound but we want to ensure that there is a variety of sounds that people have grown to know and love. This latest step is a good thing as it keeps us grounded and helps us to reconnect with many people who are ardent followers of the music.”

The rastaman sees this new direction in his music career as a necessary step in order to infuse more of his musical experiences and likes into what he does. With his next album slated to be released in the first quarter of 2011, Jah Cure says some of the new tracks will be included on that work and fans will love it: “We plan to include one or two of my own compositions on the album as well as release some as stand alone singles. I believe that my musical career can only benefit from me taking such a keen interest in the composition of my music and I know the fans will appreciate this new step in the way my music is produced.”-The Observer
