Hot Station, the collaboration in between DJ 19 and Hideout, strike back on the 19BOX imprint with another fantastic cover version following their previous release ‘The Groove’. The original ‘Roadblock’ was released in 1987 by Stock Aitken Waterman. Hot Station have remodeled it to feature the vocals Avril “Starfire”Aiken who is sister of Shinehead. On remix duties is one of our favourite producers - Moussa Clarke & Freakbreak. Together they go straight for the jugular and produce a wonderful glitch hop remix.

2.AMBROZIA CHILLOUT MIX
Rise And Shine 3.11 is a collective of reggae artists organized through the network of 3 cities: Kingston, Jamaica; New York, USA and Tokyo, Japan. The goal of the project is to support the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami that rocked the north-eastern coastal areas of Japan on March 11th, 2011. This project includes big names such as Shinehead and I-Octane. Other artists affiliated with the project include Anthony Red Rose, Ninja Ford, Lenn Hammoned, Vybrant, Prophecy, Iakopo, Worm Bass, Avril "Starfire" Aiken, Simone Gordon, among others and Movers who are Catapila, Dennis "Shango Trex" Llewellyn, and Edison.
It has taken almost two years to bring this project to fruition because of the addition of more and more artists. That said, we are now ready to release the Chill Out Remix by Ambrozia (DJ 19 + Edison), the instrumental Karaoke Version alongside the Original Mix. While it’s not the usual 19BOX (JUKEBOX) RECORDINGS sound, there is a great deal of meaning for a Japanese label to release this single when you consider the impact this has had on the country.
東日本大震災を受け、日本にも所縁の深いレゲエ・アーティスト達が大集結。約2年の歳月をかけ応援歌を完成させた。発起人はCATAPILA、SHANGO TREX、EDISONの3人。そのためキングストン（ジャマイカ）、NY（アメリカ）、東京（日本）でレコーディングが行われ、約20名が参加。その中には、「Jamaican In New York」のヒットで知られるSHINEHEAD、今ジャマイカで最も熱い男と称されるI-OCTANE、その他にもANTHONY RED ROSE、NINJA FORD、LENN HAMMOND、IAKOPOらの名前も。結果、ポップでカラフルなレゲエ・ソングが完成した。また、AMBROZIA（DJ 19＋EDISON）による極上のチルアウト・ヴァージョンも収録。
