TIDBITS: KURT RILEY MAKE THE LINK WITH BERES HAMMOND

Monday, September 6, 2010

Jamaica's leading party DJ Kurt 'Party Animal' Riley has put his skills again into producing a track that is expected to shake the world of Lovers Rock fans across the globe..

He has now completed the tune My Kind Of Girl by the ever-fresh Beres Hammond, and is scheduled to release it on his father’s Techniques label. For the track Kurt teamed up with renowned producer Barry O’Hare, for a production that’s complete with live instruments arranged by a competent team of experienced and popular musicians.

Barry O’Hare has been producing hits since the mid 1990s, and has worked with some of Jamaica’s leading acts including Capleton, Tanya Stephens, Admiral Tibet, Lt. Stitchie among others. He also mixed the Burning Spear album Jah Is Real, which won a Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album in 2009. My Kind Of Girl was co-produced by Micheal Fletcher, who also plays in Shaggy’s band. The other musicians who worked on the track include Webber, who also plays in Shaggy’s band, Monty from the C-sharp Band, and Kirk Bennett who played drums.

In Kurt’s own words, the tune is legitimately a Lovers Rock tune that is mellow and sure to please. It’s due for release on his father’s Techniques Label very soon. This is not Kurt Riley’s first production. To date he has made rhythms such as Rule and Eternity (with his brother Andre Riley), Golden Gate and European Swing.
