The BRAND NEW riddim produced by Bonner Cornerstone Music Ltd is titled "NO MORE WAR RIDDIM" and will be available for digital distribution on May 6th 2014 by the giant VP Records / VPal. Kirk Bennett, who is the foundation drummer of Beres Hammond, played the drumming heartbeat of this rhythm and all instruments. It brings to the project an authentic Nyabinghi "one two order" beat, promoting the roots of Reggae from Jamaican culture in its organic Rastafarian faith. back up singing done by Maria Smith, Alex Roberts P.K.A AR15 finalised the project by mixing and mastering. The reminiscence of jamaica’s spiritual roots happens, with the track listing of 17 songs coming for instance from the new roots and culture artiste Richie Spice featuring Snatcha, artists such as Spanner Banner, Gyptian, Bascom X plus all the 13 others Jamaican reggae artists who added vocals and lyrics on this instrumental composition.
The story of this riddim explained by Bonner Cornerstone’s CEO, Fontano Thompson, says; “The selection of artists featured on the No More War riddim happened naturally. The story started with the first song recorded on the riddim and made by Richie spice and Snatcha. This song was titled NO WAR because in Jamaica many people are fighting in the garrison cities, but also in United Kingdom, New York... All over the world we have tribes fighting each other in Africa, Ukraine, Afghanistan… People always fighting and this is not necessary, because everybody gets hurt in the mix“. Aggressive and violent behaviour by one human being toward another is not a new phenomenon. It was prevalent among our ancestors more than 25,000 years ago, “Life is a battle we all have to face” Spanner Banner sings in this single “Who feels it”. Nevertheless, the prevalence of aggressive and violence today is sufficient to make it a social problem worthy of attention around Jamaica and the rest of the world. “And the poor people ah suffer hard you know… Jah Jah world under pressure” are the words coming from Gyptian with a beautiful single titled “Light is life”.
“The NO MORE WAR concept started to manifest when the song featuring Richie Spice & Snatcha” NO WAR got recorded. The message of this concept will continue to manifest itself now through Internet, radios and media worldwide”, Fontano Thompson concludes.
The music's potential to disquiet and disturb, has attracted so much fans today that it can be easy to forget about the idea that conscious music soothe and relax on emotional, physical and spiritual levels.
