Description

Jamaican Reggae powerhouse artist, Cutty Ranks, comes Full Blast with the release of his new full-length album Full Blast under his own Philip Music Label in partnership with Independent Distribution Collective. The highly respected veteran artist gives a gritty take on the reality of living in the urban streets of Jamaica on the title song with accompanying video “Full Blast” with Cutty bringing a strong message of non-violence and justice.

Featured artists on the album in collaboration with Cutty include top Reggae names in the business including a pair of Grammy-nominated Jamaican superstars: Beres Hammond with their sweet pairing on “Way To Go,” Luciano “Long Life,” and a combination with the late veteran female American R&B vocalist Gwen Guthrie (of “Ain’t Nuttin Going On But The Rent” fame) on an original song called “My Girl” showing a softer side of the artist.

Other tracks on Full Blast include the lover’s rock track “In My Place” with up and coming singer Hyh Volume plus the high energy dance infused “Take It Away.” These three tracks are a sample of this evolved artist’s journey in music and completion of Cutty Ranks first full album in a decade. An extensive schedule of live performances is set in North America, Europe, Japan, and the Caribbean to support this new release.

Over his storied career, Cutty Ranks got his start in the mid-1980s at the famed Techniques and Penthouse labels where he dropped hits such as “Press the Trigger” and collaborated with other gifted artists including Beres Hammond, Marcia Griffiths and Wayne Wonder. He then released his greatest hit single, “The Stopper” (off the album of the same name), on the UK based Fashion label. The Stopper album became a certified gold selling record, and was picked up by Profile Records. He also released his classic hit singles such as “Limb by Limb” and “The Return” and “A Who Sey Mi Dun.” Cutty also produced his first album, Six Million Ways to Die, which got him signed to Priority Records, after which he went on to form his own label, Philip Music. In 2000, he released the album Back With A Vengeance produced by King Jammy that saw Cutty Ranks venture into other musical styles, including hip-hop and dancehall.
