Jamaican dancehall icon Cardiff "General Degree" Butt stops traffic with his new collection of classics FROM THE 90s. Born Cardiff Butt in Mandeville, Jamaica, the world-renowned dancehall deejay (Jamaican rapper) blasted onto the music scene over 20 years ago, and has remained a mainstay on airwaves and playlists ever since. Consistently touring and keeping his brand relevant with fans – a rare accomplishment in the dancehall genre, this timeless artist now returns with a collection of new hits to satisfy longtime and new dancehall aficionados, globally.
FROM THE 90s boasts 13 thrilling tracks that cover the spectrum of dancehall music, spewing throwback 90s sounds to deliver new classics for the times. Acclaimed Jamaican producers add authentic flavors to General Degree's dancehall mastery, with the likes of Steven "Lenky" Marsden, Craig "Craigy T" Thompson (of .), Andre "Suku" Gray (of Ward 21), and Hitmaker Muzik. International pop star and fellow Jamaican Sean Paul turns up the temperature on the EDM-spiced "Bambalam (Remix)," reggae royalty Tarrus Riley pools his star power on the reggae-infused "Feeling Irie (Dancehall Remix)," while throwback dancehall vibes take center stage on tracks such as "Yuh Betta Kool," "Have Fun," "We Doe Worry," and "Gweh," among others.
General Degree first catapulted to international fame with his dancehall blockbusters "Traffic Blocking" and "Granny," which, among his other hits, still enjoy regular airplay and club play worldwide. He more recently turned heads and waistlines with his massive dancehall-EDM fusion hit "Bambalam." The electrifying tune was licensed by ZumbaR in 2014 and has since worked its way around dance studios worldwide, amassing a new following for General Degree, in both the dance and fitness worlds. That momentum spawned FROM THE 90s, as it proved the global need for new music from General Degree, which he now delivers for the masses to enjoy, for all time.
