Clockwork is back at it again, this time revealing his remix of Congorock‘s “Bless Di Nation.” The bass-heavy producer has been playing out his rendition of the bubbling dancehall production in live sets and now he is ready for listeners to hear the mastered version.
Using Sean Paul’s original vocals, Clockwork turns “Bless Di Nation” from dancehall reggae into electro-house with ease. Keeping the Jamaican vibes intact, Clockwork turns up the BPM and muffles the bassline forming a big room production driven by the beat. The track is officially due out January 8, but listen for yourself before it’s released.
A very short snippet of “Bless Di Nation,” an upcoming Congorock track featuring Grammy-winning, dance hall artist Sean Paul has made it’s way onto the world wide web. This unexpected but exciting collaboration fits with the growing dance music, reggae fusion trend. Although the snippet is too short for us to definitively speak to the quality of the track, we have a feeling it’s going to be a hit. Hopefully, he’ll drop it in full at Electric Zoo on Sunday so we’ll have a better idea what the track is about.
The build seems to be where the reggae comes in and the drop…well it’s Congorock to a tee. “Bless Di Nation” employs his signature sound, which we love, but our only complaint is that it sounds a bit too similar to “Monolith.” Check it out and decide for yourself.
