Cutty Ranks is set to release his new single, video and digital EP Full Blast under his own Philip Music Label in partnership with US based Independent Distribution Collective.  The veteran artist gives a gritty take on the reality of living in the urban streets of Jamaica on the song “Full Blast” with Cutty bringing a strong message of non-violence and justice.
“When I wake up in the morning I see dem….a pass. And when dem reach down the road I can hear the full blast. Then me hear another life lost….” from Full Blast
Other EP tracks on the EP include the lover’s rock track “In My Place” with up and coming singer Hyh Volume plus the high energy dance infused “Take It Away.”  These three tracks are a sample of this evolved artist’s journey in music and full album to come this summer. Extensive schedules of live performances are already set to support this new release.
Over his storied career, Cutty Ranks got his start at the famed Techniques and Penthouse labels where he dropped hits such as “Press the Trigger” and collaborated with other gifted artists including Beres Hammond, Marcia Griffiths and Wayne Wonder. He then released his greatest hit single, “The Stopper”(off the album of the same name), on the UK based Fashion label.  The Stopper album became a certified gold selling record, and was picked up by Profile Records.  He also released his classic hit singles such as “Limb by Limb” and “The Return” and “A Who Sey Mi Dun.”  Cutty also produced his first album, Six Million Ways to Die, which got him signed to Priority Records, after which he went on to form his own label, Philip Music.  In 2000, he released the album Back With A Vengeance produced by King Jammy that saw Cutty Ranks venture into other musical styles, including hip-hop and dancehall.
