Super music producer Curtis Lynch, via his Necessary Mayhem imprint, is once again expanding Reggae music with the wildly hot tune “Let it Go,” which features quite the fusion of UK music luminaries.

“Let It Go” boasts a catchy hook and intense lyrics that will captivate every listener from beginning to end. The smooth Reggae rhythm (aka riddim) provides the perfect foundation and further solidifies the promising song, which yields a cross-section of styles, boldly represented by the R&B/Soul of Shola Ama, the Dancehall deejay flavor of Stush and the Grime contribution of Big Fris. Because of this unparalleled fusion of artists and styles, “Let It Go” will appeal to a wide listening audience.

“This is a lot of fun, as it’s an awesome feeling to work with such great artists and to me ‘Let It Go’ is the ultimate combination,” says Curtis Lynch. “I grew up on sound system culture and always liked combination dubs, so now I get to do the same thing with recorded tracks.”
