The Amore rhythm was inspired by the current trend of lovers rock beats impacting the reggae scene not only locally but overseas.
In a release to the media, Hanson explained the idea behind the project.
‘After producing various rhythms it became apparent that lovers rock is taking overthe world. Shady and I dug deep to produce this project because we felt the artistes would be inspired to write great love songs”, Hanson stated.
The project contains a delicious mix of appetizing treats from established as wellas up and coming acts.
Reggae crooner Ginjah contributes Gimmie Your Love, while Sizzla is back with Love Connection. Former Digicel Rising Stars winner Brown Shuga sings about her Greatest Love, while current chart topper Nature places emphasis on Woman of My Dreams.
Falling in Love by Turbulence, Just to Be with You by British reggae singer Lady Lex, Love Choice by newcomer Aima Moses, Keep You Warm by male singjay SK,Simply Girl by Canadian based reggae crooner Tony Anthony, Playa by singer Erasto, Karma by deejay Colton T and Second Place by Khago complete the tracklist.
According to Hanson, the mix of established acts and newcomers was a strategic move.
‘We planned it that way. We wanted to openthe doors for the new generation of artistes that are mastering their craft’,said Hanson.
Hanson revealed that the project took a little over a year to complete. This is the latest in a line of productions from the Donsome Records imprint. The label had previously issued one drop reggae projects including Life Journey, Hard Rock, Crime Stop and the Mr. Brown rhythms.
