Resin Music was founded in 1998 with the vision of creating a positive change in society through music. RM became the west coast home for Reggae, the music seeking unity among people and harmony with the environment. Our first release ISAAC HAILE SELASSIE 'Unite' in 1999, a call for peace in Ethiopia, was nominated for Best Reggae Album of the Year by the Beat magazine. Next we released albums from U.K. dancehall star TIPPA IRIE and So Cal's BADFISH, and distributed CDs for EEK-A-MOUSE, KY-MANI MARLEY, HALF PINT, SLIGHTLY STOOPID & more through JDC Records. Then we produced our first major festival - Reggae by the Surf on Oahu, HI and with the footage created the first ever reggae/surf movie 'Reggae Nation Island Movement' featuring KY-MANI, SEAN PAUL, BEENIE MAN, SLIGHTLY STOOPID, LONG BEACH DUB ALLSTARS and pro surfers including Sunny Garcia and Shane Dorian. The film was nominated for numerous awards. Our next DVD - 'Reggae Nation the Real Spring Break' was filmed at SWAT Spring Break in Rosarito, Mexico starring EEK-A-MOUSE, MR.VEGAS, TIPPA IRIE & BADFISH. Both movies were carried at major retail locations including Best Buy, Circuit City, Tower Records, Wherehouse and Transworld.
In 2001 we created Reggae Nation TV and since have produced RNTV for networks including FOX Sports Net (90 million homes), the ZILO College Network (250 campuses), and Havoc (Video on Demand). Reggae Nation became the "Yo MTV Raps" for reggae, showcasing the stars with an MTV Host and bringing high production multi-media to the scene, formatting content for TV, movies, music videos and the internet. RNTV has produced videos for superstars STEEL PULSE, CAPLETON, DAMIAN MARLEY, BUJU BANTON, SHAGGY, ALPHA BLONDY, BARRINGTON LEVY, MICHAEL ROSE, YELLOWMAN, ANDREW TOSH & more. We are currently working on a 'Reggae Nation Live' documentary and new webisodes.
In 2005 RM hooked up with Body Glove and Surfing America to raise money for the USA Surf Team by releasing a series of compliation CDs called 'Surf Roots.' The comps feature reggae & rock from STEEL PULSE, SLIGHTLY STOOPID, PEPPER, MICHAEL FRANTI, TREVOR HALL & more who generously donated tracks. The CDs have raised thousands of dollars for the Team, become a favorite at surf shop countertops and spawned the Surf Roots Tour which has included dates with COMMON SENSE, SASHAMON, ANUHEA, THE GREEN, BALLYHOO, STRANGER, THE B FOUNDATION & more. The tour has gone international, Surf Roots sampler DVDs are playing at surf shops and Surf Roots Radio is now the #1 internet station for reggae. The brand has come to define the music & lifestyle.
Resin Music has helped foster the current reggae & beach music resurgance. We have thrown over 500 live concert events including tours in Hawaii, Japan and Mexico, helped guide the careers of numerous artists, set up worldwide distribution and licensing agreements, and done talent buying for clubs. Today we are hired by companies to execute targeted marketing campaigns due to our huge database and ability to reach the demographic. We are proud to have raised money for charities including Leukemia & Lymphoma research, Surfrider Foundation, Heal the Bay and Project Morry. We are blessed to share the music we love! Enjoy!
