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.
Congorock has teamed up with Stereo Massive for an electro production with a Caribbean dance flare enhanced by a vocal from Sean Paul. “Bless Di Nation” comes with kicking drums, alarm resembling synths, and party whistles galore to create a celebratory ambiance on a naturally fast paced dance track. Once Sean Paul lends his reggae vocals, the song becomes something you would here while partying on vacation. The official release is available on Beatport, and if you prefer the production raw, Ultra Records has packaged an instrumental with its original.
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.

Sean Paul’s dance record “She Doesn’t Mind” is the most recent track to get the Gregori Klosman remix treatment. The Parisian, who naturally displays a variety of sounds across all of his tracks, swaps out the original’s summery feeling in favor of harder electro house vibes. The first minute is strictly progression that builds up to a spooky lead in preparation for the track to drop into Klosman’s unique dirty Dutch-infused style of electro house. While there’s also a remix that includes the original Sean Paul vocal, we much prefer the instrumental mix which could be mistaken for a Klosman original. However, feel free to decide for yourselves; both versions are available on Beatport now.
