DANCEHALL LEGENDS UNLEASH!!

Payday Music Presents Dancehall Legends Vol 1 with EXCLUSIVE new Buju Banton

Kingston, JA (June 21, 2012) If the term legend, is defined as a non-historical story handed down by tradition from earlier times and popularly accepted and Dancehall as a genre of Jamaican popular music, a style of dance-oriented Reggae than the art form that is known as Dancehall, which lives through Reggae, spins the livelihood tales of Jamaican culture is most definitely a legend.

Then infusing with the DJs and Singjays of present, names like Bounty Killer, Buju Banton, Mavado, Vybz Kartel and Capleton, storytellers are created. Who embed in generations old, new, and yet to come cultural sagas to be enjoyed for years to come creating dancehall legends.

On July 10th, Payday Music Group presents "Dancehall Legends Vol 1" a compilation of work by Grammy award winning producer, Austin "Payday" Green spanning over the last 8 yrs. This audio collection is a showcase of some of dancehall's greatest artist that Austin Green has the opportunity to produce for.

Austin (better known as "Payday" or "Kevin") Green started his career in music over 14 years ago. With beginnings at Gargamel Studios, work at England's Jet Star, as well as all the years in between producing, engineering, crafting and creating, Austin Green has contributed greatly to Reggae music. Most recently the Payday team released < >"Play Your Part" the official theme song for HelpJA Children initiative.

As "Dancehall Legends" prepares to release, Austin remarks that it was exciting going through years of music, choosing selections for the 1st volume, stating, I've produced a lot of good music over the years, I realize my catalogue is growing. I just want to showcase some of the work. The compilation will have eleven tracks, nine previously released with two exciting new exclusives. Some of the singles featured will be < >"Informa" Mavado, "Run Dem Mouth" Sizzla, "When Yuh Hold Dem" Vybz Kartel, and < >"Tek It To The Heights" Capleton.

The exclusives tracks; however, come from Bounty Killer and Buju Banton. The two new songs "Dem A Trace" from Bounty Killer and "Pressure Dem" from Buju Banton, are currently un-released and will be available only on "Dancehall Legends". As curiosity might strike to why Payday waited to release these singles, Austin offers this response, I don't like to rush music. When he (Buju) was incarcerated, people tried to rush and put out what music they had, I don't do music like that, no bandwagon thing. It just felt like the time is right to release it.

As for the Bounty single, it's a track we revisited during the Play Your Part recording. It's included on the compilation versus a regular release as to not bring hype and questioning to the song title "Dem A Trace".

With that said, let the stories be told and the legends unfold, as Payday Music presents "Dancehall Legends Vol 1" on July 10. The compilation will be available on all digital outlets.

For the premieres of "Dem A Trace" and "Pressure Dem" and more information follow < >@PaydayMusic. Visit < >PaydayMusicGroup.com for a complete musical catalog.
