The last couple of months has been the best for reggae and dancehall music locally which been marred by murder and corruption. But one producer has actually taken the time to put a positive spin on the music, while sending a very strong message of change and hope to the people.

Tony Kelly is the only Jamaican producer who has single-handedly sold the most dancehall units worldwide. The man who took a teenage Terror Fabulous and turned him into a household name. “Action not a bag a mouth” we all know trade marks from this great man, his sound has been instrumental in creating hit songs for popular reggae /dancehall artists like Sean Paul, Wayne Wonder, Sasha, Snow, Super Cat, TOK, Shaggy (whose album sold over 10 million copies). Beenie Man (collaborated on several albums including Back To Basics, The Doctor, Art and Life and 2002′s Tropical Storm) and Baby Cham (“Desperate Measures” featured on Cham’s debut album, Wow… the Story).

Now Kelly is back with his new project, The Anti-Abuse Riddim compilation which is about to drop this spring. The album as its name suggests is a harsh, but subtle reality of abuse which is prevalent in everyday life. Every track, relates to some form of abuse. Kelly teams up with Shaggy, Alaine, Omari, Atiba, Bugle, Kymanie Marley, Malika, Bambino and many more acts for this massive project.

I especially like the Alaine track Susanna. The track takes on a journey of a young girl called Susanna (which is a true story of a young fan of Alaine) and speaks about the abuse and neglect the young girl experiences. The ending is tragic, but the silver lining is that we all can relate to these life events. Another outstanding track is one done by Assassin (Agent Sasco) and speaks on substance abuse. All in all the album is great and Tony Kelly has decided that all proceeds from the project will go to charity.

On April 30th Tony Kelly and a number of the artistes featured on The Anti-Abuse Riddim will be at Fuzed to launch the project. Back by Warrior Love Band will be backing, the stage will also be set for a Question & Answer interview type session with the prolific producer.

This is an event NOT to be missed. The Push A Yute Production electric show Fuzed has hosted acts such as I-Wayne, Sizzla Kolonji, Voicemail, Jeremy Harding and more is a monthly show held every last Wednesday at The Funky Munky Bar and Bistro, 17 Holborn Road, New Kingston. Show time is at 10:00pm. Tickets are available by calling 1876 4132057. More information is available on the Fuzed Facebook Page: and on Twitter @pushayute
