Interrupt Music is proud to present ‘In-Between the Times’, a six track EP, showcasing a broad range of styles from the talented singer/MC Deemas J and reggae/dancehall producer Interrupt.

After working together on a number of projects including the track ‘More Fire’ from Reggae Roast’sTurn Up the Heat’ LP, and performing together at various shows around London, Interrupt & Deemas J formed a connection over a mutual love of reggae and dancehall music which would take them into the studio in 2020/2021.

The opening track ‘Do You No Wrong’ features a heavy, bass driven dancehall riddim from Interrupt, with Deemas J’s jazz-scat influenced vocals making for a catchy, fast paced, high-energy dancehall tune, guaranteed to get the crowd moving in the dance.

Next up is ‘Lover’, which showcases Deemas J’s unique DJ style, with lovers-rock inspired lyrics over an eclectic 80s style digital reggae beat.

The third track ‘Super Sharp Freestyle’ is another high-energy dancehall tune which features improvised off the cuff lyrics from Deemas J over Interrupt’s dancehall re-rub of the classic jungle tune ‘Super Sharp Shooter’. The vocals showcase Deemas J’s talent as a live performer, recorded in a single take with a huge range of vocal styles including fast chat, rapping and falsetto singing.

Congo Man’ is a song which pays homage to Deemas J’s ancestry, with a heartfelt melodic vocal over a heavy 90s style one drop riddim from Interrupt with an earth shattering bassline.

‘Love is on the Rocks’ takes us back to the lovers theme, with lyrics borrowed from Neil Diamond’s hit song of the same name, re-imagined by Deemas J over another heavy bassline led riddim, creating a unique take on the classic song.

Finally ‘Chill’ features an uplifting and quirky 80s style digital reggae beat, inspired by Steely & Cleevie’sBigger Boss’ riddim, with Deemas J delivering some sweet vocal melodies, once again in a style reminiscent of the lovers rock movement of the 1980s.
