As Protoje gears up for the Spring 2011 release of his debut album, The Seven Year Itch (Produced by Don Corleon), fans are as impatient as they are excited for what’s expected to be a landmark record. Now Selector Rory Yaadcore is treating fans to a preview of five tracks from the upcoming album. The Seven Year Itch Sampler gives fans unrestricted access to Protoje’s creative process, and a deeper look into how his work has developed. Part art exhibit, part exposé, part dub session, the sampler includes all previously released tracks from the upcoming album, including ‘Arguments,’ ‘Dread,’ ‘JA,’ ‘Roll,’ and ‘Rasta Love’ (featuring Ky-Mani Marley). Each track is accompanied by exclusive audio clips of Protoje explaining his creative process, as well as its own artwork designed by Taj Francis. Fans are also treated to a bonus live version of ‘Dread,’ recorded on the night of Protoje’s first performance at the renowned Jamnesia Sessions in Bull Bay, Jamaica.

According to Protoje “These songs were written over a 7 Year Period, hence the album title 7 Year Itch. I want this Sampler to give people who wouldn’t normally have access to my music, a chance to connect, and to understand why I choose to express myself in this way”.
