Reggae legend Beres Hammond released a dub version of his 2010 hit, One Life To Live, last month on iTunes.

Hammond's new dub single was produced by Kemar 'Flava' McGregor in connection with a series of newly mixed renditions of McGregor's most renowned roots singles, recorded by the likes of Luciano, Gyptian, Etana, Bushman, Sizzla, Queen Ifrica, Capleton, Turbulence, I-Octane and Morgan Heritage. McGregor's new dubstyle version of One Life To Live is ranked as Hammond's No. 1 download on iTunes.

Born in Annotto Bay, Jamaica, Hammond is considered one of the most-beloved romantic reggae singers in the history of the music industry.

Hammond has recorded seven albums within the Billboard Top Ten Reggae Albums chart since 1994. He was nominated for a Grammy Award in the 'Best Reggae Album' category in 2002, in connection with his 2001 studio album Music Is Life. His most recent album, One Love, One Life, peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Reggae Albums chart in December 2012.
