Dancehall’s dynamic duo, Baby Cham and Bounty Killer is set to unleash musical bombs that were strategically recorded for their timeless body of work. The masterpiece EP dubbed 'Time Bomb' is set for release this Friday, September 22nd.

Following the success of Bounty Killer and Baby Cham’s 1999 timeless classic hit song 'Another Level' the track garnered tons of requests over the years for more collaborations from the two musical icons.

In celebration of the 30th anniversary of Madhouse Records, they decided to give the fans what they’ve been asking for, as a part of their upcoming highly anticipated EP 'Time Bomb'.

The new project boasts seven tracks with features from dancehall heavyweights Dexta Daps and Dave Kelly and sees an international collaboration with English actor and DJ Idris Elba.

The mastermind behind the project is arguably one of dancehall’s leading top producers Dave Kelly, who brought his vision to reality before the pandemic hit. "My main goal while creating this masterpiece was to create music that would reflect our growth as individuals", says Dave Kelly.

"While demonstrating how we’ve evolved musically, but still remain authentic to everyone involved. And hopefully deliver something that our original fans will love and enjoy, and maybe inspire both the previous and new generations of artists and musicians”, the renowned producer added.

The musical genius Dave Kelly also shared "Working on this EP, the musical chemistry between our collective minds was powerful and intuitive, focused and harmonious, which led to the perfect synergism during the creative process, and fostered an environment void of all egos. It allowed our creative juices to flow unencumbered. So as usual, we stuck to our philosophy of using the studio to have fun".

The three masterminds went to a secret location for a long month and recorded most of the songs for the EP. Prolific dancehall icons Cham and Bounty Killer uttered, "We went into the studio and created musical time bombs. We want the fans to know that dancehall is alive and well, just waiting on the time bomb to explode. the musical time bomb".

The first single 'Slow Motion' was released May 5, 2023 and immediately captured the listeners, especially the ladies who were mesmerized by the trio Dexta Daps, Cham and Bounty Killer with their lyrical verses and melodic chorus which still have fans in a chokehold.

Fans were treated to a special mini-movie with the release of 'Slow Motion'. Dancehall songstress Jada Kingdom was the lead female in the movie along with Dexta Daps, Cham and Bounty Killer who each championed their role. While the single racked up over 5.5 million views on all the trio's YouTube channels, the mini-movie has garnered thousands of views on YouTube as well.

"Working with Bounty Killer is always a blessing. We have been in the studio with him since I was a boy before I was a professional, I have been in the studio like a fly on the wall, or like a sponge soaking it up, absorbing and learning", Cham praised his fellow artiste.

'Time Bomb' EP will be accompanied by a documentary this Friday, it will undoubtedly showcase their musical chemistry, and the fans will get to see the highly acclaimed dancehall icons creating the musical time bomb.
