Big Feet Records Taps Natural Black For New Ska Release (@bigfeetrecords)

Next week Friday – on December 9th – Big Feet Records will share a new ska tune performed by Natural Black, titled Mission to Conquer

The song is a labor of love by executive producer Josh Harris, who after reviewing some of Natural‘s previous recordings felt he was a good fit for the track. Black, a Guyanese from Georgetown who is currently based in Kingston, Jamaica, was able to write and voice the tune almost immediately after being approached. Following the initial introduction and once Harris‘ vision was made clear to all relevant parties, the synergy between both brands – Big Feet Records and Natural Black – was seamless.

Natural Black started out by voicing for such legendary producers as Gordon Lee, Jack Scorpio, Freddie McGregor and Beres Hammond. His distinctively smooth and mellow voice left an impression in the forefront of the new-roots and culture movement that was happening at the time. With a slew of modest hits, Natural Black steadily gained fans and recognition, and in 2006 became an international success with the chart topping single Far From Reality

Josh Harris and the rest of the team at Big Feet Records are excited about this upcoming release, as they’re confident all lovers of ska music will enjoy it.

George Nooks “Surrenders All” In New Video! (@Tadsrecord)

The man who burst on the scene as a dancehall deejay in the 70s, using the moniker Prince Mohamed, has just blessed us with the visuals for one of the tracks featured on his 2021 album, Through It AllGeorge Nooks – via Tad’s Record Inc. – released the official video for the well-liked Christian hymn, I Surrender All, in mid November (on the 18th to be exact).

Although the words in the song were penned more than a century ago by Judson W. Van DeVenter, an American art teacher and musician who subsequently became a music minister and evangelist, it is this reggae remix – produced and sang by George Nooks – that’s got the reggae community’s attention.

And, despite the fact that Nooks has achieved financial success, countless accolades and worldwide recognition as a secular recording artist, he has – since the start of his career – been committed to singing reggae-gospel music. This dedication became apparent when his grandmother died in 2001. He had this to say about I Surrender All and some of his other gospel recordings: “From I was little I listened to some of these songs in church. My grandmother was the mother of the church and I used to be there with her all the time.” 

I Surrender All can be streamed and downloaded from iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music and all other major music platforms, courtesy of Tad’s Record Inc.; and the video can be viewed on their YouTube channel.
