Recording artiste, Grammy winning writer and chart topping producer Rohan Rankine, also known on the dancehall stage as Patexx, is excited that he is the driving force behind yet another great project. Rankine recently completed a full length album combination with two musical stalwarts, Red Fox and Screechy Dan.
The project called Reset sees the two great musical voices on 10 tracks paying homage to Reggae and Dancehall sounds. Rankine believes the hard work speaks for itself on this solid album.
“Even though it’s a lot of work putting everything together; from the beats to writing the songs, to recording sessions, to mixing and mastering. After going through that process and to hear and see the master piece you have created musically there’s no words that can describe that feeling,”Patexx
Both Red Fox and Screechy Dan have worked together over the years and even have a hit single together in the 1990’s called ‘Pose Off’, they have also contributed separately over the last 3 decades to the genre from sound system development to Reggae and Dancehall’s evolution.
Patexx is no novice to writing or producing hit material either, he has been racking up accolades on projects like; Sting and Shaggy’s 44 /876 and Chozenn’s Culture Invasion Albums, as well as singles; Bawl Out by Dovey Magnum, Straiiittt by Safaree and Wife Yuh by Daniel Di among others.
The Red Fox and Screechy Dan Reset album however was very special to Patexx as it merges authentic Dancehall with new world experiences.
“It’s a great body of work from two great veteran artistes. Their album touch on different topics and each song give you a different feel and appeals to all generations,” Patexx added
The Reset album was released in August and is distributed by Vpal. The single ‘Loyal’ from the album also has visuals out and can be seen below or on PatexxVevo and YouTube.
More visuals are expected to be completed for the album, and ace producer, Patexx is hoping that the project makes its way to Grammy Nominated status.
