Forever Music Productions is a music label located in Portmore St. Catherine, Jamaica. Their aim is to spread righteous, positive, creative music filled with love and reality in the reggae community. The label started out in 2007 and is led by Shayne Green, the engineer working with Sly Dunbar from Sly & Robbie (Taxi Gang). Furthermore the singer Earth Tremma is a integral part of Forever Music. Up till now the label has released four albums in five years. In 2011 they released the "Streets Of Pain" album, followed in 2012 by the "White Squall" riddim. At the beginning of 2014 they came up with the "Big City" riddim, while 2015 saw the release of the "Rockers Railway" riddim. Their latest project is the "Dub In Town" riddim. It's a slow one-drop riddim, complete with syndrums and subtle dub fx, a real treat if you're into old-skool reggae.
The album brings us eight vocal tracks and the instrumental riddim version. The ever faithful Lutan Fyah kicks off in full fire with the cultural scorcher "Babylon Game". The daughter of Winston McAnuff, Nadia Harris Mcanuff, has been a member of Agapa featuring Nadia Harris, a South Florida based fusion band that gigs regularly throughout the Sunshine State. She recorded some tracks in Jamaica and her contribution to this album is an awesome conscious duet with Lymie Murray. Check out the lyrics! The aforementioned Earth Tremma puts out a fine tune and Naptali praises Jah on "Righteous Trod", an absolute gem! Classical Eska is a Portmore vocalist with a few singles under his belt. His vocal approach reminds us of a young Sizzla. With "Country Bus" he brings some serious crucial herb vibes. Promising vocalist Tasha-T does a real good job with "Fire In Me". Singjay Dwayne "Hympac" Clarke delivers a serious slice as he heartically chants about several social themes of this time.
