A MOMENT IN TIME

A tribute to Usain Bolt

Downloads, CD and Vinyl versions available now – click here

This is a post promoting our newly composed JAMAICAN NATIONAL ANTHEM that celebrates the incredible performances and the achievements of Usain Bolt.

You can probably still remember watching USAIN showing the competition his heels and bringing home a bag-full gold medals.

Take a quick listen to our melodic tribute, this is our ‘MOMENT IN TIME’ tribute song.

This cool jazzy roots tune (that’s still being polished and coated with lavish amounts of love and musicality), thanks and exalts Usain and our esteemed Jamaican athletes for the stylee in which they represented our little ‘ISLAND IN PARADISE’……Wasn’t it just awesome…..Give me an Amen?

The song was written and produced by RAY CARLESS & bad-ass reggae bass playing session man & producer COLIN MCNEISH. The vocals on the track was performed by UK rapper WATUSI87 with Emzee Haywoode supporting on backing vocals.

The inspiration for this MOMENT IN TIME tribute arrived approximately over 8 years ago after some shocking/insane performances on the running track by the trio of Usain and two of his his fellow Jamaican athletes who crossed the line in 1st 2nd & 3rd places in the 200 metres in Berlin’s 2009 World Championships…

On that account….. 123 ARGUMENT DUN?

A rap/vocal mix will be featured on the upcoming Ray Carless & Club Skaaville Allstar EP that will soon to be available on vinyl and cd as well as from most online music outlets. Accompanying tracks include songs from the upcoming Ray Carless & Club Skaaville Allstars album. (More info on its way).

This is an inspirational piece of roots reggae-jazz fusion that was composed as a properly anthemic reminder  of a memorable, relentless, magical and enduring real-time Moment In Time ……….

We hope that you full-joy this our ‘Moment in Time’.

Thanks to my online friends for your kind responses to our musical tribute to Usain..Just a few days ago, Hi-Tension sax man Patrick McLean kindly turned my attention to a very nice musical and heart-warming tribute to Obama. That video very meaningful and very well put together. It reminded me of some inspirational reasons that had led me to produce this musical dedication to Usain Bolt......

Both men have had incredible journeys.

Usain brought a massive amount of interest and excitement into our lives during his career and i've made it my duty to pass on the love and knowledge that we have of Usain to our grandchildren so that they can do the same to their grandchildren and so forth....

Usain's presence is already badly missed in the athletics world and the wider media...He stands in history on the shoulders of previous sporting greats like Jesse Owens, Bobby Morrow, Jim Hines, Don Quarrie, Alan Wells, Linford Christie, Carl Lewis, Donovan Bailey, Maurice Greene and Asafa Powell (to mention a few..... Usaun 'Lightening' Bolt...You are worthy and still the champ (in our hearts of hearts)....

Please pass on.. ... #UsainBolt
