Super Cat’s ‘Reggaematic’ rereleased
Downsound Records (DSR) has rereleased the single ‘Reggaematic’, recorded by superstar dancehall veteran Super Cat.
The single was produced by Super Cat’s Wild Apache Productions and will be marketed by DSR’s marketing arm, Contractor’s Marketing.
Since it was released last week on local radio, Reggaematic has literally lit up the airwaves on both Irie and Zip FMs.
The single has its usual Super Cat bravado, which also expresses his love for reggae music. It was also produced on a crossover dancehall-hip hop beat in which the veteran, born William Maragh, has featured on many occasions.
In 2001, Super Cat collaborated with India Irie on her hit song, Video, as well as with Jadakiss and The Neptunes for Don Of Dons in 2003. Last year, his song, Dance Inna New York, was sampled for Nas’ single The Don, from the rapper’s album, Life Is Good, with Cat adding the vocals to it.
The slick-talking Super Cat is back with Reggaematic in an attempt to make another huge statement in music. The single, according to its marketing personnel, Sean ‘Contractor’ Edwards, has all the right ingredients to make it big worldwide. As such, he feels honoured to be handed the task of helping to promote it.
“Any Super Cat is bombshell. He has been doing it for decades. For this, I am very pleased to be asked to be a part of the promotion for the rerelease of Reggaematic, which I believe will reach far if it gets that push,” he said.
DSR’s CEO Joseph Bogdonavich echoed Contractor’s sentiment, adding that the track can be another of Super Cat’s crossover successes. “It is a nice track with the potential to be a huge crossover hit. We will give it the attention it deserves,” Bogdonavich said.
