Founded in 1999, Federation Sound is celebrating 15 years of spreading reggae and dancehall to the world. From their start, Federation has been dedicated to pushing the envelope and finding new and creative ways to share their love of the music.
Federation Sound has worked with virtually all of the top names in reggae music including Sean Paul, Shaggy, Mavado, Baby Cham, rising star Chronixx and many more. Max Glazer toured with Rihanna for 4 years as her DJ / musical director. He has also toured with numerous reggae artists.
Max Glazer produced Vybz Kartel’s “Whine (Wine)” which was featured on VP Records Reggae Gold 2011 and Westwood – The Big Dawg Is Back (Universal UK). Federation Sound‘s first official riddim release, Flatlands, featured Mr. Vegas, Mr. Lexx, Ward 21, Prince Zimboo and more. It was also followed by the ground breaking Flatlands Remix Project which featured remixes of the entire riddim.
Under the name “Triple Crown”, Federation shared production duties on the remix of Pharell and Jay-z’s “Frontin” which featured Vybz Kartel and Wayne Marshall and appeared on the Grammy nominated Def Jamaica album.
Federation has also worked with Brooklyn super producer Ricky Blaze on several projects, including the massive bootleg dancehall remix of Rihanna’s #1 hit single “What’s My Name” featuring original lyrics from Vybz Kartel and the Federation Sound remix of Matt & Kim’s “Tonight” off their Lightning Remixes album on Fader Label.
They’ve had their hands on a number of important projects that have helped to push the music forward. In 2006, Federation Sound mixed the Serious Times compilation on XL Recordings while Max Glazer has executive produced two compilations – Dancehall Classics on Sequence/Ultra and Miss Lily’s Family Style on VP. Max also released an EP of all original music with Scion Audio/Visual called Federation Invasion – 5 The Hard Way featuring Ricky Blaze, Mr. Lexx, Tifa and more.
Federation Sound has produced ground breaking mix CDs with Vybz Kartel, Aidonia, T.O.K., Chino, Natalie Storm, Ward 21 and many more.
The Federation Invasion is their weekly podcast that has been bringing brand new dancehall reggae to the world for the past 7 years
