Ever since Dub-Rock Reggae sensation Protoje dropped his debut single titled Arguments last year it was evidently clear that he is no ordinary artiste. The talented lyricist who hails from St. Elizabeth is always thinking outside the box and this is very evident on his hit singles JA, Dread, Roll and Rasta Love. Protoje is very passionate about his craft and he also has a great appreciation for the people who support his music.
Protoje is currently preparing for the January release of his highly anticipated debut album, The Seven Year Itch (Produced by Don Corleon) and fans are understandably impatient and excited as they look forward to what is expected to be a landmark record. However before the album is released Protoje is giving his fans a special treat by releasing a free Seven Year Itch Sampler courtesy of Selector Rory Yaadcore.
The Seven Year Itch Sampler features five tracks from the upcoming album and gives fans unrestricted access to Protoje’s creative process, and a deeper look into how his work has developed. Part art exhibit, part exposé, part Dub session, the sampler is primarily being distributed by Protoje, where ever he goes and through Manifesto Jamaica, it also available at Base Kingston, Shimmer, Bookophilia, Spokes and online for Free.
The Seven Year Itch Sampler includes all previously released tracks from the upcoming album, including 'Arguments,' 'Dread,' 'JA,' 'Roll,' and 'Rasta Love' (featuring Ky-Mani Marley). Each track is accompanied by exclusive audio clips of Protoje explaining his creative process, as well as its own artwork designed by Taj Francis. Fans are also treated to a bonus live version of 'Dread,' recorded on the night of Protoje’s first performance at the renowned Jamnesia Sessions in Bull Bay, Jamaica.
According to Protoje “These songs were written over a 7 Year Period, hence the album title 7 Year Itch. I want this Sampler to give people who wouldn’t normally have access to my music, a chance to connect, and to understand why I choose to express myself in this way”.
