Fantan visits Rasta Yaad
Fantan Mojah

RASTA Yaad is the latest single from singjay Fantan Mojah. It was released last Friday via Donsome Records.

The song is the lead track from the various artistes rhythm project of the same name, which is scheduled to be released early December.

The Rasta Yaad rhythm is produced by Adrian "Donsome" Hanson.

Fantan Mojah explained how he became to be a part of the project.

"I was introduced to the project by Turbulence. It's the unity and the love of the Rasta community and what we stand for that gave me the inspiration to write the song," Fantan Mojah told the Jamaica Observer.

This is Fantan Mojah's first time working with the production house.

"It's my first time working with Donsome Records and I am loving the feedback on this project," he said.

The other tracks and artistes featured on the Rasta Yaad rhythm project are: Most High by Anthony B, Still a Love Jah by Lutan Fyah, Why Not Live by Turbulence, Brutal by Mykal Rose, Putting Up Resistance by Ginjah, Rocky Roads by newcomer Kaibanon, and That's Right by Junior Kelly.

"I have been working on this project for over 18 months and, based on the mystical vibe of the rhythm itself, I knew the direction but at the time I didn't give it a name until Fantan Mojah recorded his song Rasta Yaad — that's when I named the project Rasta Yaad," shared Hanson.

The project features primarily Rastafarian recording artistes, a move which Hanson said was strategic.

"It's a blessing to have 90 per cent Rastafarian artistes on the project but I still stick to my strategy where on every project I always give a young artiste the opportunity to be on the project with the established artistes. This time we give Kaibanon the opportunity, which I'm very impressed with, and I think he has one of the best songs on the project," Hanson added.
