Mask on Riddim

A 5 track dancehall ep (12m 47s) — released March 15th 2019 on Swing Ting

Epic B bounces back in 2019 with a hypercharged riddim release featuring vocalists from Kingston, JA, Manchester, UK & his native Brooklyn, USA.

The original riddim file for Mask On was lost last year in a robbery when Epic had his laptops and hard drives taken at gunpoint. However, a WAV file of this riddim had been bounced prior to this unfortunate event. A year on and the riddim has been reconfigured, chopped and voiced by four amazing artists with it set to blaze up the airwaves this spring and summer!

"Meno" features Eddie Hill a Brooklyn-based artist who collaborated on Be With Me from Epic B's acclaimed Late Night FlexN EP. This version was recorded prior to the robbery - thankfully due to Nick Sinna's mastering skills it's been possible to restore this cut for dancefloor devastation. Swing Ting's Samrai travelled to Equiknoxx studios in Vineyard Town, Jamaica in 2018, resulting in two cuts on the riddim. He played Kemikal Epic B's Mask On riddim, who laid down Walkie Talkie almost immediately. Alozade, veteran on the Dancehall circuit recorded his version More Gal a few days later with help from Gavsborg co-writing the lyric. Hotly-tipped Mancunian MC Lady Ice recorded her vocals at Swing Ting studios, after which Epic chopped the vocals in his inimitable FDM style, turning them into the final version of I'm the One.

Fast becoming one of the catchiest club cuts we've heard so far this year. - Jasmine Kent-Smith Mixmag
