It’s shaping up to be a musically charged year for World Scann Family. The New York based imprint tops their growing music catalogue with the explosive “This World Remix” and music video, featuring the Grammy award-winning Mykal Rose and conscious deejay Scepta. Quite a well defined collabo, the “This World Remix” sees the dynamic artists melodically deliver a powerful message at a time “This World” needs it the most.
As the latest release from the World Scann Family, the “This World Remix” follow’s suit with the label’s mission to release “good, uplifting music, which teaches awareness.”
World Scann Family was founded by Scepta (aka Kirk C. Crawford) as a vehicle of controlling how and when meaningful music can be released to the masses. This track comes after the release “This World” by Mykal Rose, also from the World Scann Family label.
Major efforts from World Scann Family consist of a series of riveting releases from Scepta, including the “Appealing Thoughts” album, “Tell Yuh Bout Yaad” EP and singles “Tell Yuh Bout Yaad,” “Rudeboys” and “Nah Sell Out.” Notably, “Tell Yuh Bout Yaad” was a JCDC Jamaica Festival Finalist in 2015.
Firmly planted in roots, reality, culture and current events, Scepta’s music has laid the foundation for World Scann Family’s expanding catalogue of artists. To date, the label has seen releases from Judah Tafari Eskenda, Bazil Gayle, Little Twitch, YaaA Universe (formerly Princess Menen) and Mykal Rose. Consistently dropping curated, conscious content, World Scann Family is well positioned to be a Reggae music force.
‘This World Remix’ is one of severally culturally driven releases from the World Scann Family label.
Although World Scann Family was established in 2005, it was amidst the pandemic in 2020 when the label increased its musical footprint. The world was in crisis and World Scann Family believed their music could serve as a source of healing. True to its meaning of “scanning the negative and positive of life and that of the world to uplift,” Scepta and his team are moving World Scann Family in the right direction. As someone who is family oriented, incorporating family into the label’s name and core values was a natural step for Scepta.
The “This World Remix” and visual with Mykal Rose and Scepta catapult World Scann Family to an undeniable space in Reggae music’s landscape. With New York City as a backdrop, the visual unfolds with the duo building a catchy, meaningful vibe. Some time in the making, the new collabo does not disappoint.
