‘I Give You Love, You Show Me Hate’ a collab with Bugle

Grammy award-winning entertainer, Mykal Rose, has teamed up with reggae artiste Bugle for the song I Give You Love, You Show Me Hate. The song, which was produced by Donsome Records, was scheduled to be released on January 20.

Rose, a former member of the award-winning group, Black Uhuru, shared how the idea for the song came about. “The inspiration behind the song came from my experience with a former group member. I never showed that guy any form of grudge or spoke any negativity about him. I showed him all love, but he just gave me all the hate, so, therefore one day I just say imagine I show this guy so much love and all I get is hate. So that’s how I made the song,” Rose explained.

Rose said the collaboration was made possible by producer Adrian ‘Donsome’ Hanson. “Donsome was the person who arranged the collaboration, however, Bugle and myself used to meet regularly at Sly Dunbar’s studio on Red Hills Road.” This isn’t the first time that Rose has collaborated with Donsome Records. “The chemistry between Donsome and myself is great.

He has some great riddims and he knows the music and what’s current. He is an amazing producer,” said Rose. Rose sang lead on several Black Uhuru songs on the album Anthem, which won the first Grammy Award for Best Reggae Recording in 1985.

The sound of Reggae is widely recognised because of its acoustically formed bass and drum downbeat, and its offbeat rhythm section. With such a diversity in style it is also considered complex enough to attract progressively minded musicians. A music that has a strong association with dance covering a variety of styles while also offering a background beat for those sharing Biblical chants of Zion. It is hard to ignore Reggae’s influence and how it interacts with our day-to-day lives. Shared as background music for films and advertising driving its heavy bass lines literally felt wherever rock and pop are played. Reggae has an affinity with mainstream British pop; recognised within the hip-hop culture and considered “cool” by those with no connection to Jamaica. As lovers of reggae my aim is to build a community of reggae followers that can share thoughts, news, events as listeners, artists, DJ’s and hosts.
