The Heatwave and Tippa Irie Make Dancehall “Tun Ova!”

Greetings!

Tippa Irie is a Dancehall legend who built his success based on a solid foundation.  He began with his Father’s sound named Musical Messiah, and went on to perform with King Tubby’s and Saxon Sound (for younger DJs readingthis email, performing live on a sound is not as easy as it appears; you mustbe the cream of the crop to earn that residence).

Performing live developed Tippa’s ear and the ability to know what lyrics and which riddims connect with audiences.  When Tippa heard one of The Heatwave’s productions, he immediately reached out to Gabriel to arrange a recording on one of the groups riddims.  The result is “Tun Ova!”

Released on The Heatwave’s own label, the single is being embraced in Europe and making its’ way across the Atlantic to fans who respect the voice and delivery of the great Tippa Irie!

Here the single “Tun Ova!” When you play it, make sure you send feedback to @tippairie and @the_heatwave!
