Stone Cold Records scores with Sean Paul song
In 2001, Mark 'Stone Cold' Hudson produced the song 'Regular Thing' which was recorded by dancehall star Sean Paul.
The song was featured on the Stone Cold Records' Verdict rhythm project.
Fast-forward to 17 years later, and Regular Thing has given Stone Cold Records some visibility on the Billboard Reggae album chart.
The song is featured on the 15-track multi-artiste project titled Tropical House Cruises to Jamaica. The project debuts at number two on the latest chart.
Hudson believes this will only shine some spotlight on work produced by the label.
"This is good for Jamaica, seeing the calibre of artistes involved with the project. I am looking forward to seeing this going further," said Hudson. "The Sean Paul song is back in rotation and is one of the leading songs getting airplay from the project. The sound that Sean Paul had back then is what is becoming popular again."
Hudson said that his former business partner gave the producers the okay to include the song on their project.
"The beat was created by Jam2 and we recorded the song at Black Scorpio studio. As a label we always try to work with young artistes and explore new sounds," said Hudson.
Among the label's hits are Mad by Predator and the official reggae remix of Ghetto by Akon featuring TOK.
Hudson, who has been involved in production since the late 1990s, was once signed to Atlanta-based Jamdown Records as a producer.
His biggest project for the label was the 2001 compilation Riddim Ryders Vol 1.
The Tropical House Cruises to Jamaica compilation also features songs from artistes such as Ed Sheeran, Sean Kingston, Vybz Kartel, and Chronixx.
