Conscious Reggae Artist Xtr3me Drops Debut Album, 'Vintage 21: Ancient Tradition'


Rising conscious reggae sensation Xtr3me proves his undeniable vocal talent and profound lyrical skills on his debut studio effort Vintage 21: Ancient Tradition, available worldwide from all major digital retailers on March 11, 2014, with pre-order available now, from FOX FUSE. Hailing from St. Catherine, Jamaica, Dwayne “Xtr3me” Nelson discovered his passion for music at a very young age, and has matured into a socially-conscious reggae artist through the years. He embodies the teachings of the Rastafarian faith with each selection on this album, which all bear testament to its title by presenting ancient traditions to modern day, reggae music fans.


Describing his style as roots reggae mixed with modern reggae, Xtr3me reveals that reggae music brought him insight that no other genre had given, and his quest for identity has finally bared fruit. Such insight is obvious on all eight (8) tracks of his debut album, which were all penned by this prolific and versatile singer and songwriter. His soulful pleas for social justices for all mankind are evident on uplifting singles such as “Brighter Day,” “What About Justice,” and “Selassie SoulJah” featuring Ras-I-Ota and Roiall.



Citing musical influences such as reggae greats Gregory Isaacs, Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Sizzla, Mutabaruka, Beres Hammond and Dennis Brown, the young Rastafarian singer is focused on bringing heartfelt, meaningful music from the very roots of the genre. “This album was inspired by the spirits of my ancestors, the half of the story that has never been told,” reveals Xtr3me. “It is anti-segregation music calling for equal rights and justice, and bringing the masses of our people together in love and unity. It is music for the rebellious and righteous youths.”

The album was produced by the Kimichi Records duo of Hanif Chito and Giovanni Smith, alongside Lamar Thompson of AudioTraxx Production. “Working with Xtr3me was very easy as he is young, intelligent, conscious and no doubt in touch with his roots - he sings what he practices and what he believes in it so all the tracks are well done,” states Hanif Chito of Kimichi Records. “As an artist who puts his heart and soul into his music, he is always in high spirits and inspired, hence his excellent work ethic. The energy just flows and it was a beautiful experience.” With his debut album now in hand, Xtreme is on the precipice of becoming a household name to reggae music lovers everywhere.

Vintage 21: Ancient Tradition will be available worldwide from all major digital retailers on March 11, 2014, with pre-order available now, from FOX FUSE.
