Groove Armada remix of U-Roy and Shaggy’s spectacular version of “Rule The Nation.” A new video produced by Jamaica Soundsystem in collaboration with whynow and Rockers the movie is available now for streaming.


“Rule The Nation (Groove Armada Remix)” sees the 3x GRAMMY® Award-nominated UK dance music duo – Tom Findlay and Andy Cato – recasting the already powerful track with a distinctive and uncompromising new energy.

“We wanted to keep Shaggy and U-Roy’s carnival spirit and re-tweak it for that 3am slot near the subwoofer,” says Groove Armada. “Right to the last minute there was loads more stuff going on. But in the end, as always, less was more. Kick, hat, clap, bass, 2 MCs and some live-to-tape action on the console. To quote Pete Tong , ‘turn it up.’”

“We have loved bringing this track to life,” said Jagger. “We hope we will all continue to celebrate the great works of U-Roy.”

U-Roy and Shaggy’s original rendition of “Rule The Nation” can be found on U-Roy’s critically acclaimed 2021 album, SOLID GOLD U-ROY, available now  digitally and on standard 2LP Black Vinyl HERE; Trojan Jamaica/BMG’s Limited Edition 2LP Gold Vinyl is exclusively available at VP Records retail outlets in Queens, NY and Miramar, FL, and via VP Reggae HERE.
