Biggy Music launches Weed Inspired Steamaz Riddim

The Cannabis inspired project has been steaming up the airwaves for a few weeks specifically with the first single ‘Finally’ by Jesse Royal.

The ‘Steamaz Riddim’ is the first juggling project for 2015 for Producer Biggy who has also produced; Drink and Rave by Konshens (also known as One more Year), the Red Tam and Caribbean Party Riddims.

 

Formally one half of the DJ Duo “Razz and Biggy” that parted ways last year; Biggy has been a producer since 2012 and specifically like producing songs with conscious themes:

“I can’t say I like producing any specific kind of project more than the other, music is music. I most definitely like when songs have a positive message no matter what topic. However, my productions always have a strong Jamaican element about them ... I like to term it 'ruff edge' ” Stated Biggy in a recent interview.

 

The beat of the Steamaz Riddim is an original dancehall style mixed in with modern influences. The project features; Jesse Royal, Deep Jahi, Jah 9 and upcoming acts Sagitar, Kerry Starrand Ragga Lox. Choosing the talents for the project was a natural process. Working closely with Biggy, Deep Jahi was the first to sample on the Riddim and everybody else fell into place organically overtime.

 

The changes to Jamaican legislation in relation to Marijuana possession and criminal charges has impacted the music in Jamaica in general and inspired the singles on the Steamaz riddim specifically; All the tracks on the Steamaz Riddim are about herbs and herb smoking from a different perspective which also inspired the name of the riddim itself.

 

“Jesse’s song is based around the joy and exuberance felt by many Jamaicans due to the decriminalization of marijuana smoking. Deep Jahi expresses his love for smoking and chants at the top of his lungs about the feeling he gets from smoking. Sagitarr laments on the pressure law men put on herb smokers, Kerry Starr Did a very sexy kind of love song, where she sings to weed as if it were her lover. Lastly Jah 9's song is based on the economic implications and progress that can be had from its legalization.” Biggy added.

 

The response to the first single ‘Finally’ by Jesse Royal has been massive. The single is being played by top radio stations and sound systems across the world such as David Rodigon in the United Kingdom, Waggy T, Bobby Konders and Jabba from Hot 97 in New York City. Whilst locally the sound systems’ Stone Love, Jamrock, Chromatic, Coppershot and selectors Like Foota Hype and Boom Boom among others have been plugging the riddim at music sessions. The riddim is also enjoying regular rotation on Jamaican Radio along with scores of internet and underground radio stations.

 

 “Whether you are a smoker or a non smoker you should be able to appreciate the feeling the songs give. All the songs on the production are  great. Individuals can pick whichever one they love and Jam to it, or just jam to them all“ Biggy added

 

The complete project is expected to be released digitally this July. Though there are not any specific plans for a video shoot the next phase of promotion will have everyone locally and internationally talking about the “Steamaz Riddim”.
