Providing a splash of summer to the shores of the UK Spragga Benz joins forces with Chi Ching Ching, Agent Sasco and Sean Paul on the epic remix of ‘Differ’ produced by the legend that is Toddla T.
Freshly released via Buttercuts Records and premiered on Billboard Spragga Benz supplies a delicacy of high energy dancehall vibes sealed with an all-star lineup.
One of Jamaica’s most iconic talents, Spragga Benz has another hit on his hands with ‘Differ.’ Anchoring production on “Differ” is Toddla T, the revered genre-bending British DJ on BBC Radio 1, who is also a go-to producer for artists such as Arctic Monkeys, Skepta, Roots Manuva and Stefflon Don. The track has been picking up steam since its release in November 2018, spawning an animated lyric video and music video and now a brand new remix with Jamaican powerhouses Sean Paul, Agent Sasco and Chi Ching Ching. The bass heavy anthem is taken off his upcoming album Chiliagon, slated for release later in the year.
On the remix, the Afro-Caribbean percussion is a hypnotic loop with pulsating synth chords adding colour for these lethal lyricists to flex their wordplay of what makes them different. Spragga Benz, Sean Paul, Agent Sasco and Chi Ching Ching stay in the pocket of the rolling drums performing his verse effortlessly. Spragga chose these specific artists because of his close friendship with them over the years. “When I proposed the idea to Andy of Buttercuts Records and Toddla they were totally ecstatic about it,” he says.
With the release of “Differ” and its remix this year, long-time fans of Spragga are treated to his charisma. Spragga’s smooth persona and clever lyrics have not missed a step since his 1994 debut album, Jack It Up. “When we arrive nuff of dem get jitters because dem nervous a pure chat chitter,” rants Spragga B.
