New York based Jamaican Producer/Artist L Razor is upbeat ahead of his latest project, Shanti Riddim. Slated to be released on September 16 on his Straight Hit Records Imprint, the Riddim boasts an all-female cast. “This project has such a high expectation on it because of all the hard work it took to get eight great hard-working female Artists on one Riddim. The female Artists have been fighting for their place in the male-dominated Dancehall Industry. That is why I decided to put a stop to it and put the ladies on the forefront of Dancehall, so the Industry can be balanced properly,” said L Razor.
The acts featured on Shanti Riddim are Macka Diamond, Tiana, Candiesha, Sekklez, Beme Mystique, Trudiva, Semonita, and Rhythm Piink. The set will be available on all digital outlets. The producer said a medley video is in the works. “We’re set to drop two medley videos of all the Artists showcasing their songs. One medley was shot in New York, while the second is be shot in Jamaica next week,” he said.
L Razor (given name Sheldon Thomas) hails from Portmore in St Catherine. He migrated to the United States in 2000. As a Dancehall Deejay, he gained attention with Buss It Pon Dem in 2008. His other tracks include Mad A Road and Watch Me Nuh.
