Remla Productions a reggae gospel record label from Jamaica, releases a summer compilation, “Survey Riddim,” on July 28,2012.
The compilation features artist from Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago and Guyana.
The main theme of the project is, surveying one’s life, to build a better relationship with God. “The artists did not disappoint.”This is according to producer Andrae Palmer.
He said,“ I am proud of the project because all the songs are special to me. Each of them has their own spin, on the theme, which certainly ministered to me, and I’m sure everyone will be blessed”
The featured work done on the “Survey Riddim, “are surrounding thoughts of encouragement. For example Prayz, his message is, God is always there in times of trouble to help, and he has not given us the spirit of fear, but of boldness, power, love and of a sound mind. “Stand Firm” done by Altimon” Ikonn” Gordon, and Well prepared done by HG Vibration from Guyana.These send the message of encouragement
Personal Prayers for example, “Higher” done by Jason Bless, calls on God to take him higher spiritually. “Teach me Lord” by Ordinary, asks God to teach him how to wait. “Anyweh yuh Turn” done by Jprojek, gives himself over to God
Call to action.Here the artists remind us of our purpose as Christians. “Stand out” done by Nika, call Christians to stand out for christ, and make an impact.Godson call believers to true worship, and Kerron Gomez throws out his challenge to both males and females, to raise their standards. Encouraging them to live up to Proverbs 31, which explains what a woman is supposed to be. The males urged are to raise their standards by seeking a woman who lives up to the Bible’s criteria for an ideal mate.
Dajay ’s contribution was one of a story, of the prodigal son and sharing how Jesus turned his life around. Oshane Mchugh shares how God has been good to him, despite the odds.
Overall, the project is balanced.The messages are cause for reflection, prayer, and praise to the almighty God.
