Producer pleased with response to ‘Hard Rock’ rhythm
New York-based producer Leon Smillie is pleased with the positive response that his latest project, the 'Hard Rock' rhythm, is receiving.
The roots-reggae project, which features songs from Capleton, Turbulence, Richie Spice, Lutan Fyah and the producer's late father, Jah Hammed, was released in June.
Since then, all the songs on the rhythm have been receiving heavy rotation on local radio stations.
"I honestly can't complain about the feedback that I've been receiving about this project. I'm grateful for all the rotation it's receiving in Jamaica," he said.
"Since we started to promote the project in the US, the rotation has picked up stateside and in England and various parts of Europe. This proves that people in these places still appreciate good reggae music," added Smillie.
He also revealed that he is getting ready to drop another reggae rhythm project which will feature several top acts in the genre.
