Remla Productions a reggae gospel record label from Jamaica, releases a summer compilation, “Midweek Riddim,” on August 3,2013.
The compilation features Dawit Jeffery, Kerron Gomez, Altimon Ikonn Gordon, Yi, Dajay, Ebony and Holy Spirit Vibration from Guyana. The main theme of the project is the importance of God in your life. Each artist has their spin on the theme.
“The lyrics came at a point in his life that he needed more of God. it was very much on my mind where i needed a more profound experience. It was like my heart and soul was crying out then one day I just started singing ‘Hear the cry of my heart hear the cry of my soul hear the cry of my heart God you i want to be hold’, and my verse was basically me saying how i felt at the time, and am wondering if am not doing what am suppose to or is it that my time has not yet come. I was actually reaching out to God. I shared the experience with ebony and we then completed the song.”
Dwayn’e Williams said their song is just a question of the norm
“Is just a thing where you question yourself about why people do certain things that they shouldn’t do, that maybe they don’t really want to do, or behave a certain way and you come to the conclusion that maybe they don’t know Christ’s love for us or maybe they have forgotten about it .So its just a reminder and we just saying if only you knew about it , things would be different.”
Kerron Gomez :
said the song was a long process and that through hardship we must always be thankful. He recalls his experience,
“The song “Sometimes” has been in progress for over 5yrs,the song started off in 2007,when one morning I got the lyrics to the first verse on my way to school. I never wrote it down but remembered it. Recently I was presented with the mid week riddim and as I began to write the lyrics of the first verse, I decided to be creative and move the lyrics of the first verse to the chorus and use the lyrics that I had written 6 yrs ago as the first verse. Seeking a feature with Daneke Palmer of Jamaica, after she did background vocals on my hit song “my empress”,the song came into being. The general theme of the song is that though sometimes we go through pain and heartache and life may hit hard, through it all, we still lift hands and thank the father for life as it is.”
Overall this compilation has a diverse set of messages towards both christian and non christians. It will have you thinking back to those moments where you were alone with God and saying Thank you Jesus for being there. Even if you are at this place these songs will encourage your heart.
You can purchase this compilation on iTunes.
