Bunny Rugs and Raw Edge Productions announce the release of 3 massive reggae singles from his soon be released solo album “TIME”.
“LOVE IS BLIND” bounces across Sly and Robbie’s dub influenced Tune In Riddim. This infectious one drop beat delivers a contagious hook that just makes you want to move. Rugs penned “LOVE IS BLIND”, a song about a woman heartbreaker, fi di man dem. “Cause I fall for your tricks every time, the more you confuse and perplex my mind. You keep saying everything thing is fine, you’re a sample girl you’re one of a kind.” “LOVE IS BLIND” was produced by Lowell “Sly” Dunbar, Robert “Robbie” Shakespeare & Rory Baker and recorded at One Pop Studio in Kingston, Jamaica.
Bunny Rugs’ smooth melodic vocals highlight the gorgeous lover’s rock groove of “JUST CAN’T DENY”. “Oh I ‘Just Can’t Deny”, even though I try, got to have you by my side, Oh, I ‘Just Can’t Deny’ love has come on by, let’s just take it for a ride.” The true essence of the message in “JUST CAN’T DENY” is pure and organic, simply stated, at the end of the day, there is “No sense in running, I just can’t get away cause there is no escape from love.” Lyrics written by Richard “Bello” Bell of Star Trails Records fame and produced by Dean Fraser and William “Bunny Rugs” Clark, recorded at Tuff Gong & Grafton Studio in Kingston, Jamaica.
The entire world seems to be under “KURFEW”. Lyrics speak for themselves: “Kurfew, soldier pon the corner, be on the alert keep the children inside, red light push button spell danger, causing everyone to feel uptight.” Rugs recorded this socio-political Reggae song “KURFEW”, after Jamaica’s 2010 Tivoli Gardens uprising that gained global media attention, while the theme of the song is a true reflection of the civil unrest and crisis’ worldwide. “KURFEW” was produced by Mikey Bennett and William “Bunny Rugs” Clark, recorded at Grafton Studio in Kingston, Jamaica and 506 Studios in Orlando, Florida.
In the ever changing world, Bunny Rugs proves that some things in “TIME” remain constant; Love conquers all and he remains the true Golden Voice of Reggae Music.
