Welcome to series two of #ToppleUncaged!
Every week, The Canary will be bringing you an innovative podcast for the media landscape; hosted by me, Steve Topple.
In a special episode, I feature the first move into music by a global athletics superstar, record breaker and now record producer: Usain Bolt.
I had the chance to fire some questions at the legendary Bolt. He has just released his debut music production, the Olympe Rosé riddim.
Five artists, all big names in the dancehall genre, have put their own interpretations across Olympe Rosé: These very different tracks come from Dexta Daps, Christopher Martin, Ricardo “Bibi” Gardner, Ding Dong and Munga Honorable. Alongside Bolt on production duties was Rajah Karanja Nelson.
Olympe Rosé has distinct afrobeat vibes, but is firmly grounded in dancehall.
Listen to hear Bolt’s answers, read by me, to my questions. He told me about his thoughts on the reggae scene, how his athletic skills crossed over into the music industry and whether we’re going to be seeing more tracks from this global star.
