The 'Life Support' riddim is easily one of the hottest riddims in the world of dancehall in 2015.

High-profile artistes such as Popcaan, and QQ have recently voiced singles on the riddim, a move that is amping up the promotion of the already popular riddim which is a fixture in local dances.

“A few more artistes voiced on the riddim after the initial release, and people love the song dem so we decided to release a larger and completely re-mastered version of the juggling, making a major difference in the overall sound of the songs as far as loudness, warmth and crispness. The full release is entitled 'Life Support Double Dose' and will be dropping on iTunes and all major music outlets soon,” super-producer Justus Arison said. 

Popcaan's 'Weed is My Best Friend' leads the pack, and has already jumped on the FIWI Choice Top ten chart, while Kurry Stain's 'Sky Pree' and Beenie Man's 'Pool Party' are also party-rockers, burning up local charts. 

Arison, the boss of JA Productions, is pleased with the feedback so far, and believes that the riddim is quickly gaining ascendancy with recent high-power additions. 

"The riddim is now on iTunes, and the top sellers so far have been Sean Paul, Mavado and Beenie Man. Beenie Man's 'Pool Party' has already hit a couple of dancehall charts around the globe, Kurry Stain is getting big support on the radio and the streets locally and global, and Keznamdi has been quite a surprise, registering impressive numbers on Soundcloud, he has a growing fan base," Mr. Arison said.

JA Productions will be releasing a slew of new videos, shot with state-of-the-art equipment and game changing drone technology, within the next couple of weeks. The blitz will include videos from JA Productions rookie Kurry Stain, Kalado, veteran hit maker Munga, and Billboard chart-topping deejay Sean Paul.

"We will be releasing a number of videos for the project. We have already shot Kurry Stain, Sean Paul and Munga videos for their songs on Life Support, as well as the video for Kalado’s popular single ’Now or Never'. We are currently planning extra videos for some of the new songs so look out for much more. The team is putting in crazy work, we ah take it to the next level," Arison said.

Munga's 'Push Dem Out' will lead out the riddim with a video premiere this week on Onstage on CVM, and will be in major rotation on RE TV, HYPE TV and Swagg TV next week.  

"Dancehall fans will be impressed by the quality of Munga's video and he has been on a major promotional blitz this week, and we giving thanks for his well being. Jah works in mysterious ways and it is great to see Munga a push di wicked people dem out a him way and a do him ting stronger than ever," Arison said.
