International Dancehall Artist Orisha Sound Releases Single Remix for “World War III”
Los Angeles, CA - The international pop-reggae star Orisha Sound revives this year’s hit single “World War III” feat. Beenie Man. The highly successful single featuring Grammy winner Beenie Man has received airplay on hundreds of radio stations and hit number one on Jamaican radio charts. The up and coming DJ Ryan Otter (DJ Carnage and The Cataracs) seems to have the Midas touch and there’s no doubting he has turned this already hit single into gold.
Orisha Sound’s “World War III” featuring Beenie Man was recorded in Los Angeles, Kingston, Jamaica and Moscow, Russia with Executive Producer Shel-K. Orisha describes the new remix as, "a crossover song. This remix is taking the song to the next level.” Ryan Otter gives a second life to “World War III”. The remix straightaway opens with a steady tribal melody complimented by light synth accents. The song eventually becomes a fast paced beat backed by a strong synth, all of which is headlined with a clapping rhythm.
Otter is notable known for his collaborations with DJ Carnage and The Cataracs. As a progressive artist, he uses the “less is more” approach, proving you can use simplicity as a means to create a solid, catchy hook. Keeping away from the limelight, Otter has been an active musical artist for over ten years and often ghost writes for many Russian pop artists. He is notorious for his rapid rate of production; his work ranges from film soundtracks and TV series to Electronic Dance Music.
