Putting a Reggae twist to After 7's 1995 hit single 'Til You Do Me Right', Chevaughn, Christopher Martin, D-Major and Iceman Anderson team up to give the lovers something to hold each other tightly and sway in the moonlight as time passes creeps away.

Putting a Reggae twist to After 7's 1995 hit single 'Til You Do Me Right', Chevaughn, Christopher Martin, D-Major and Iceman Anderson team up to give the lovers something to hold each other tightly and sway in the moonlight as time passes creeps away.

Produced by Steve Locke (of Truckback Records) and DJ Kurt Riley (of Techniques Records) and recorded at Truckback and Tuff Gong Studios, the single features Kirk 'Kirkledove' Bennett on Drums, Ranoy Gordon on Guitar, Michael Fletcher on Bass and Norris Webb and Steve Locke on Keys.

The single that peaked on the US R and B charts at #5 in 1995, came as no surprise to give a Reggae-flavoured tweak.

"I really liked that old-school R and B song and it hadn't been covered by a Reggae artiste just yet so I decided it could be done," explains Steve Locke on the inception of putting this track together. "So being in the studio I digitally reworked it (the original song by After 7) to a Reggae version while Kurt Riley of Fame FM was by the studio, he loved the sound of the cover, and it was Kurt's idea to put together an artiste line up that no one would expect…something totally different. So Kurt called the varying artistes to come by and listen and then they decided to voice the track, and the rest, as they say, is history," he continued.

With Chevaughn opening the track, singing Melvin Edmonds' opening lines, followed by Christopher Martin completing the first verse with Kevon Edmonds' lines and D'Major and Iceman Anderson joining in for the chorus leading to Iceman Anderson opening the second verse, this Reggae twist plays like HDTV to the ears.

There's also an unplugged version and an acoustic version to be released shortly so be on the lookout.

The single will be up for digital downloads soon but until then you can check it out here
