Reggaddiction has released a Neil Young Reggae remix EP, mixed by international Dub Reggae producer Dubmatix
In 1972, Neil Young released "Harvest"; his signature album that reached the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The album features classic tracks like 'Old Man', 'Needle and the Damage Done', and Heart of Gold. Neil’s fourth album quickly became a mainstay on worldwide radio and solidified him as a premier singer-songwriter of his generation. Rolling Stone named "Harvest" the 78th greatest album of all time.
Canadian based Reggae collective, Reggaddiction, has reinterpreted "Harvest" into a reggae album, with support from international Dub Reggae producer Dubmatix, providing a Reggae Dub remix.
Dubmatix previously mixed 'Speak to Me/Breathe' for the Easy Star All-Stars and "Dubber Side of the Moon", the Pink Floyd tribute album in 2010, making him the perfect fit for the Ganja Harvest album.
This re-work doesn't stop at the mix. It includes magnificent vocal performances by Fergus Hambleton, award-winning vocalist Ammoye, legendary Dancehall artist Lord SassaFras, Jimmy Reid, Lilly Mason, Dave Matthews, and Trudy Lee Gayle, making "Ganja Harvest" a tribute album in more than one sense.
I truly enjoyed working on "Ganja Harvest", being surprised by each track - the sound, style, and vocalists. Good work. ~ Dubmatix, summer 2019
The EP version of "Ganja Harvest" is now available at Bandcamp. The full album entitled "Ganja Harvest" is scheduled to be released in 2020.
