Masta Recka teams up for 'It' EP
Masta Recka

Following the release of his début compilation album last year, music producer Masta Recka was already contemplating his next project.

This Is It, a five-song EP, was released in early May by his Zyfex Artists label.

It contains songs by Anthony B, Twiggi, Perfect Giddimani, Cuz Diego, and Sativa D Black1.

Masta Recka, who teams with Anthony B on the song Progress, said his objective was "to get suitable artistes for the project".

He is pleased with their contributions.

"The diversity of the EP occurred naturally. Keeping the project a secret from each artiste resulted in them interpreting the rhythm differently. The wide range of topics complementing the rhythm has me thinking," said Masta Recka.

Patience by Cuz Diego was the first song recorded for the EP. Do That by Twiggi, Jah is Great from Sativa D Black1, and Trouble Deh Deh by Perfect Giddimani complete the song list.

This Is It continues a busy schedule for Zyfex Artists, which Masta Recka (real name Rupert J Green) launched over 20 years ago in New York. Last year saw the company's first EP, #OGG, which was followed by the album, #1.

Born in St Ann, Masta Recka also lived in Waterhouse as a youngster. He attended Ferncourt High School and Kingston College before migrating to the United States where he attended college and joined the military.

Zyfex Artists has also produced and released songs by Stylsh and True Blaxxx.
