The first Antney Hassan album has been released today. It is available on:Itunes, Amazon mp3, Google Play, Rhapsody, Spotify, Last FM, Xbox Music, 24-7, 7digital, Sony Music Unlimited and many other music download sites.
The album has taken exactly one year to put together, as we started this project on the 31st of January 2013. In this last year we have had the privilege to have met and worked with a lot of great people and now friends. Antney would like to thank everyone who has helped and supported us such as Bagga and Jolene at the BaggaJo Reggae Show for their constant support and helping us to reach a wider audience in the US, Anthony Woodward for his help with promotion and live shows, Peter Ryder and UB42 for giving us the opportunity to perform at their shows around the UK: Norman De Langen for his help with promotion to the Dutch radio stations, Joaquin Avalo for doing all the graphic design work from the very beginning. Elena, Paloma, Rocio, Elle, Dean and Martin and for their hard work on the music videos. Peter May at MayB Studios for all the vocal tracking from the very beginning, as well as many many others too numerous to mention here. You know who you are.
We hope you enjoy the album.
The team at Riddim Studios wish you a happy and prosperous new year.
We have released a new song and video today on the website, which is one of the tracks off the album which is due to be released on the 31st of January on all the major digital distributors. The track has been played as an exclusive on the BaggaJo Reggae Show, but is now available for download.
The song was written by Theeyazam and is about the current state of the world, war, poverty and homelessness. We hope you like it.

I have some disappointing news. Party in the Dark music festival is no longer taking place in Sutton park. After advertising the event and putting the license up in Sutton park, two members of the public put in a complaint about the festival going ahead, so the charity manager’s decision was that it would be best to cancel the event as it could have been a losing battle.
We have received confirmation today that Antney will be performing as warm up act for UB42, the UK's Nº1 UB40 tribute act.
The show will take place on the 19th of July, at The Arches, in Earlsdon, Coventry.
The show starts at 8pm and tickets are 5 pound.

Hope to see you all there.
