Fantan Mojah's latest single is causing quite a stir in dancehall circles because it has crossed over to that most unlikely of genres for a reggae artiste - techno.
"It is one song, 'Fire Child' but two different versions, one techno, one reggae. On both rhythms, it is only Fantan Mojah on them, the reggae rhythm is called Shango, which means God of Fire, and the techno rhythm is called 'Moto Mtoto" (which is Swahili for Firechild). The radio is going crazy for the production, it is out playing in England and USA, we have sent it by MP3 to all the major disc jockeys in Jamaica and overseas. The first people who play it are Ron Muschett (IRIE), and Daniel Thompson (RJR)," Alkebulan, producer of the track on the Mwasi Sauti label, said.
"This is the first time that Fantan Mojah is out on two rhythms alone, just him alone on it. I have a vision for Fantan Mojah, I understand his energy, I wanted to put him in a different market that's why we deal with the techno. The tune is full of energy."
The single was recorded on January 20, 2005 at Alkebulan studios in New Kingston, and was mixed by Nigel Burrell at Anchor Recording Studio.
