Dane Sortie of SartOut Records was a creative known among his peers for his unequivocal niche for composing one of a kind beats and it was this talent that led him to team up with fellow producer Romieikon before his passing.
Dane passed from Pneumonia bearing complications associated with COVID-19.
The young producer, his brother (Darren Sortie) and Romieikon decided to put their musical geniuses together to give us the HungOver rhythm.
His Brother recalls their moments working on the rhythm; “I remember us working on the project and him saying that it had a happy sound and it would be a great summer project. He was always so full of passion; his family, friends and music were everything to him and that’s how I know he fought as hard as he could. #CEREBRALPALSYMUSICIAN ”
The rhythm features up and coming stars like; Fully Bad, Kacique, Brush1Chromatic and Xx3me.
“Having met a talent like Dane makes me realize that there is a whole new era of stars out there waiting to be discovered. We met through our work on Alkaline’s Top Prize album and I shared an idea with him and he shared that he has an idea that would complement my idea and after liaising for two weeks we came up with the HungOver Riddim. His aim was to introduce it on August 2, on his birthday, and we carried out his wish by dropping Fully Bad’s single on the rhythm” Said Romieikon.
With the full compilation to hit stores on September 3rd, Romieikon says he is optimistic that HungOver will perform well based on the response he is receiving from Fully Bad’s single, ‘Intoxicated’.
“I have a good feeling about this project especially because of what it stands for. My goal of late has been to present Dancehall music in a way that will have the same effect our legends have to date. I handpicked the effects for the beat because I had a particular sound in mind and Dane made it come to life, I will always remember him as a young legend”
The visuals behind Fully Bad’s single have been shot and will be released in coming weeks with other videos currently in their shooting phase.
Romieikon and Sart Out Records have already begun finalizing future projects.
