Music Executive at Island Records, John Hill,

Music Executive at Island Records, John Hill, has disclosed that remixes of classical songs by the iconic Reggae musician Bob Marley are intended to preserve the legacy of the late musician.

 

In an interview on 3Music TV's Culture Daily, John Hill emphasized that the initiative intends to connect to the legend's roots and bring on board musicians who have felt a strong connection to Bob Marley's songs.

 

“He’s a Legend and we’ve always tried to keep his name and his music alive. We’ve done several remixes of his catalogue. There are orchestra remixes but this time we decided to take it back home to the origin. So it’s actually like an album that we are tapping into different African acts across the continent and just remaking some of the classical records. We look out for artistes we feel connected to his music.”

 

The Music Executive added that although the record label was cautious about releasing remixes of the iconic tunes, Marley devotees have offered supportive feedback.

 

“Initially, that was the fear because I was like these are arguably some of the biggest songs in the world. So it was like how are people going to feel about it? But the feedback has been amazing. We announced the record yesterday and it was trending the whole of yesterday. So the feedback has been very amazing. It took 3 years to make this project happen. We’ve made sure that we do justice to his catalogue.”

 

Fans of the late Bob Marley should look forward to additional remixes featuring Nigerian hit-maker Tiwa Savage and other musicians across the globe.
