Earlier this year legendary reggae artist, Snow celebrated the 25th anniversary of his chart-topping smash single, “Informer” with a brand new re-recording of the classic track. Now Snow is building upon his successful return to the music industry with an official remix package of “Informer 2018”. New remixes for the single are provided by multi-platinum producer Jason Nevins, JKDG, and Tonekind.
The re-recorded, “Informer 2018” came about when Snow was reminded the song’s 25 anniversary was fast approaching. In an interview with Cryptic Rock, he explained how the re-recorded version of his breakthrough single came about:
“My managers, Paul and Matt from England, they were talking to me and said, “We have to do that song over, it’s a wicked song and a lot of kids don’t even know about it.” Then Jurgen, from Radikal Records, said, “Let’s do it!” Everybody got together, I did the vocals over, sent them in, and they did all the mixes. It came out amazing and now you can get it on iTunes and such. It was mostly them calling me saying, “Yo let’s do it!” I said, ‘Alright, let’s do it! Boom!”
Written by Snow, M.C. Shan, and Edmond Leary, “Informer” was the lead single from Snow’s debut album, 12 Inches of Snow, which sold over 8 million records worldwide and was certified RIAA Platinum in the U.S. and CRIA Triple Platinum in Canada. The infectious nineties classic “Informer” made U.S. history in the Guinness Book of World Records as the best-selling and the highest-charting reggae single ever. The song’s enduring popularity has continued from 1994, where Snow won a Juno Award for Best Reggae Recording, to 2017, when he received a SOCAN Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2018, Radikal Records released Snow’s brand new re-recorded version of his breakthrough single “Informer 2018”, which was produced by award-winning production team Audiofreaks.
