Hip-Hop Worship artist Rawsrvnt teams with Jamaican reggae star St. Matthew for Soul Deep hybrid EP
These days, some of the most popular music is built upon "dream team" collaborations of artists from different genres, geographies, or camps.
So it is with much delight that Soul Deep and Readyback Records, in association with Lion of Judah Music Group (DJ Frost/Monty G), announce that Hip-Hop Worship artist Rawsrvnt has teamed with Jamaican reggae star St. Matthew for a hybrid EP called Soul Deep that fuses both of their individual sounds.

The project also carries the momentum of one of its key tracks, "The Almighty," winning the 2012 En Sound Music Award for Best Gospel Reggae Song.
Rawsrvnt met St. Matthew in 2011 while visiting Jamaica on a missions trip. The two instantly clicked and linked up soon after to record the song "The Almighty" for Rawsrvnt's Love Deluxe album. Shortly after that release the duo reunited in Kingston, JA to film a music video for the cut.
"Part of my goal as an entertainer and music missionary has been to create great music that appeals to the masses and shares the love of Jesus," Rawsrvnt said. "By partnering with St. Matthew we can add an international, island vibe to that mix and attract even more people to this life-changing message."
Soul Deep will be available worldwide through all major digital outlets (iTunes, Amazon, eMusic, etc.) on Tuesday, August 7.
Both artists believe that if at least 1,000 fans download the EP on its release date they will make a Top 10 chart ranking on iTunes which can ultimately lead to new listeners experiencing this life-changing message through music.
"I would definitely love to see Soul Deep hit that goal and make Christ famous in a genre that, while spiritual and substantive, often pushes King Jesus to the background," Rawsrvnt said.
Fans and supporters can follow the duo online through Facebook and Twitter.
