SKATTA is the scorching latest single from hotly tipped Afrobeats artist/producer SILVASTONE. The fresh new remix features legendary Jamaican dancehall superstar,CHAKA DEMUS. The nostalgic sounding SKATTA (REMIX) is a modern throwback that creatively plays homage to a particular golden-era of dancehall music that very heavily influenced SILVASTONE’s interest in making music.
CHAKA DEMUS aptly steps up and sweetly blesses the riddim that is easily reminiscent of the music that soundtracked his massive 90s hits alongside his recording partner PLIERS. The self-produced remix was masterminded by dancehall supremo producer/presenter/DJ Seani B. Look out for the upcoming music video starring the aforementioned Chaka Demus and Pliers. Following inclusion on the coveted BBC Radio 1Xtra’s “Hot For 2015” list at the start of the year
