Queen Ifrica ignites techno explosion
In novel and creative move, which shows the versatility of reggae music, songstress Queen Ifrica has released techno remix of her single Far Away. The track is explosive in nature and is reaching new markets with an infusion of the dynamic and intense electronic beats of techno, with the classic ‘one drop’ reggae melody.
Originally released in January, Far Away’s laid back vibe of roots rock reggae was remixed by is creator Rickman Warren of Jamplifed Records. “We had a vision for the song” explained Queen Ifrica. “We just got the inspiration to make the tune on a different plane, to a different market, with a different vibe,” she says excitedly.
According to the producer Rickman Warren, the seemly unlikely marriage of the contrasting music styles is aimed at increasing the listenership of our Jamaican Reggae artistes and fans, as well as promoting Jamaica reggae music in yet another way. “Our intention is always to be a force in the world wide spread of reggae music,” adds Queen Ifrica. “Reggae music is loved the world over, and we’re just continuing to spread the love.”
The “Far Away” Techno Remix will be available for down load soon, from iTunes and other major retailers. Its release coincides with the recent débute of Queen Ifrica’s latest album Montego Bay, which features the, song in its original form.
