Busy Signal's dancehall and reggae music Mixtape coming in 2013

Radio disc jockey DJ Tropical has produced a double-disc mixtape featuring the work of dancehall/reggae artiste Busy Signal.


The mixtape carries both dancehall and reggae tracks and has two separate names. The reggae CD is called You and Me, while the dancehall CD is called One A Mi Gyal. According to DJ Tropical, Busy Signal fans will get the best of both worlds.

"Busy Signal is a versatile artiste and so if one is doing a mixtape for Busy, the aim must be to get as much of his material out as possible, at the same time showing his versatility and his lyrical competence, and I believe this mixtape does that successfully," DJ Tropical said.

DJ Tropical is also the resident DJ on the Charles Chocolate's Dancin' Dynamites.

The DJ says he has been doing mixtapes for many years. However, this particular project marks his best effort.

"I have been doing mixtapes for as long as I can remember because DJing is my talent, a natural born gift. But for this mixtape it was about picking the right songs and getting out the right feel and the right concept. Normally, doing mixtapes would be just for fun, but this one was strategically planned and orchestrated to please Busy Signal fans who are longing to get his exclusive material," he said.

The reggae CD has 21 tracks and the dancehall effort has 35. Both CDs carry freestyles and exclusive music.

Busy Signal's mixtape will be available to the public through avenues like soundcloud.com, email blasts and mediafire.com.

As for DJ Tropical, he is expected to release a self-produced dancehall rhythm called Instant Response in the coming weeks. The rhythm will feature artistes like RC, Dwayno, Flexxx and Tiyarro.

"I am working on several projects, so just look out for more work for 2013. I am young, but I'm definitely focused on getting it and I won't disappoint, hit me up on twitter @djtropical," he said.

Busy Signal recently released the music videos for new singles Defence and Bout It. The artiste also severed ties with his long-time manager Shane Brown, replacing him with his brother, Galey Gordon.

Busy Signal is no stranger to the mixtape world. The artiste received much popularity for his mixtape features in the early 2000s, with breakout songs like Busy Busy, Step Out and Born and Grow.

"Wi just deh roun a di studio and a talk wid Busy and him a seh him fresh fi di road again and that he wanted me to do his mixtape. Then the following week him shot up some drops fi mi and that's how the mixtapes came to be," DJ Tropical said.

Mixtapes are rarely backed by record labels, however, they serve as methods of reconnecting with hardcore fans.

International artistes who have received notoriety due to their mixtapes include 50 Cent, Rick Ross, Meek Mill, Cassidy, Lil Wayne and Tyga.

Busy Signal's most recent studio album Reggae Music Again was nominated for the Grammy Awards provisional list.
