Over the summer Ontario based music label, Explorer Records, joined forces with Seychelles’ production company, Dareal Thing Rechordz, to release the Elektra Riddim.
The project, which sounds like modern dancehall mixed in with afrobeat, has six tracks done by artists based in Jamaica, Canada and Seychelles. It features new music from established Jamaican dancehall star Elephant Man, popular Canadian sing-jay Blessed, as well as some of Seychelles’ trending artists: Elijah, Jakim, Maria D and Mercenary.
One of the breakout songs from the Elektra Riddim is “Joahnah,” performed by Elijah and Jakim. An official video was done for this track and shared around the same time the full compilation was released.
