International recording Reggae/Dancehall artists Christopher Martin and Busy Signal headline the ‘Escape Riddim’, presented by sprint legend and executive music producer Usain Bolt. Released February 2, Escape Riddim is the sixth album compilation delivered by the retired Olympian.

According to the A-Team Lifestyle label boss, he and his team decided to put together a Reggae Soul music production as it is music that influenced them while growing up.
“Growing up we enjoyed all the subsets of Dancehall music. As we continue to dive into the production of music we will produce music that influenced us. Lovers Rock Dancehall always give that smooth rhythmic soul feeling which is the tone of the Escape Riddim, says Bolt.
“Every artist expressed themselves in a unique way, thus allowing this project to cover all the many emotions of this Reggae lovers rock beat”, Bolt continued.
To further entertain the public, A-Team Lifestyle released two official music videos featuring songs from the album.

Bolt is internationally recognised as the fastest man in the world. He is an eight-time Olympic gold medallist, and the only sprinter to win Olympic 100m and 200m titles at three consecutive Olympics (2008, 2012, and 2016). He also won two 4×100 relay gold medals. The sprint legend gained worldwide fame for his double sprint victory in world record times at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, which made him the first person to hold both records since fully automatic time became mandatory.
In 2009, Bolt won the 100m in an impressive 9.58 seconds, a time which still stands as a world record today.
