Rise And Shine 3.11
KINGSTON, NEW YORK, TOKYO
Rise And Shine 3.11 is a collective of reggae artists organized through the network of 3 cities: Kingston, Jamaica; New York, USA and Tokyo, Japan. The goal of the project is to support the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami that rocked the north-eastern coastal areas of Japan on March 11th, 2011. This project includes big names such as Shinehead and I-Octane. Other artists affiliated with the project includeAnthony Red Rose, Ninja Ford, Lenn Hammoned, Vybrant, Prophecy, Iakopo among others and Movers who are Catapila, Dennis "Shango Trex" Llewellyn, and Edison.
It has taken almost two years to bring this project to fruition because of the addition of more and more artists. That said, we are now ready to release the Chill Out Remix by Ambrozia (DJ 19 + Edison), the instrumental Karaoke Version alongside the Original Mix. While it’s not the usual 19BOX (JUKEBOX) RECORDINGS sound, there is a great deal of meaning for a Japanese label to release this single when you consider the impact this has had on the country.
