After scoring major hits with Ding Dong & Chevaughn’s “Holiday”, Future Fambo’s “This Life” and the remix with Mavado; music producer Wayne Thompson better known as ‘Unga’ once again has something to smile about.
The Notice Production head honcho and accomplished producer is reaping major success with his latest effort the ‘Heart & Soul’ rhythm, featured on Busy Signal’s current album Reggae Music Again. The album recently nabbed the top 10 spot on the U.S. Billboard Reggae chart and features notable efforts such as “Kingston Town”, “Modern Day Slavery” and “Come Over (Missing You)” the last of which was produced by Unga.
The official video for “Come Over (Missing You)” impressively racked up in excess of one million views on Youtube. Another song on the Heart & Soul Riddim is Jah Cure’s ‘From My Heart’ which so far has over three hundred thousand views. Other acts on the compilation include: Chuck Fenda, Hezron, Chris Martin, Richie Loops, Further Notice, Chevaughn and Swedish singer Million Styles.
“This is another great accomplishment for our music and I would like to thank everyone who was instrumental in the project. It is this kind of effort that we need as a collective body to push the local genres more on the international markets” says Unga who was recently honoured for his accomplishments at the Hapilos 21st Digital Distribution Awards earlier this year.
Look out for Unga’s Sun Hot Riddim due out later this month,m featuring Gyptian, Christopher Martin, Demarco, Bugle, Munga, Chi Ching Ching, Andrew & Wada Blood, Chevaughn and newcomers Bastik and Cronixx.
As the temperature soars and the festive season approaches this timely release should definitely capture the summer vibe!
