Lady Saw Reveals Alter Ego On November 18 - @LadySawOffical

New Album Distributed by VPAL Celebrating the Multi-Faceted Queen of Dancehall

Lady_Saw_Alter_Ego_Album_Dancehall_vp_records.jpg

Next week, VPAL, VP Records' subsidiary label and distribution arm, teams up with Lady Saw's label Diva Records to release her new album Alter Ego, available November 18, 2014. The Queen of Dancehall is celebrating 25 years in the business with Alter Ego.

The album puts her creativity on full display and showcases both the racy side of "Lady Saw" and the more subdued side of "Marion Hall." The album features collaborations with Beres Hammond, Estelle, Ali Campbell of UB40 and Flo-Rida. Judging by her latest singles, "Hoping" and "Me & Mi X", Lady Saw is adding some extra sizzle to the holiday season and posed to ignite the charts. The Queen is back and she means business.

LADY SAW
Lady Saw is a musical pioneer. She is the first female Jamaican artist to win a Grammy, certify as a triple-platinum artist and headline dancehall shows outside her native country. Born Marion Hall in Galina (parish of Saint Mary), she started her career on local sound systems like many artists on the island. As a female artist in a male-dominated world of Jamaican dancehall reggae, Lady Saw defeated all odds when she went on to top the Jamaican charts with "Find a Good Man." In 1999, she had a major hit in the United States with "Smile," recorded with Vitamin C, which peaked at number 18 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The song was also a major hit in New Zealand and Canada and made certified gold with over 500,000 sales. In 2002, her collaboration with No Doubt, "Underneath It All" reached number three in the U.S. and sold more than three million copies, reaching triple platinum certification. The track also won a Grammy Award for 'Best Performance by a Duo or Group.' Lady Saw released a total of 6 albums on VP Records and then formed her own label called Divas Records.

Exclusive: Fay-Ann Lyons - RAZE - AVAILABLE NOW - @FayannLyons @stadicmusic

The grandest of entries with the first official solo single leading up to the impending Trinidad and Tobago carnival season 2015, is the amazing and unexplainably talented songstress Fay-Ann Lyons. Viqueen Fay-Ann has time and time again shown herself to be a true musician and superstar with her factory-like, hit-making countenance and abilities.

The culmination of various music styles and musical minds creating a masterpiece from what was once a blank canvas brings illumination to the otherwise dark galleria that is carnival.

Morphing Soca with Electronic Dance Music has never been as fulfilling as it now is in the house of Ground Empire. "RAZE" a written project by Fay-Ann Lyons in which she highlights vocal abilities reminds us why she is Viqueen and why she remains amongst the best entertainers to do it in this new era.

Exercising a rare type of skill, STADIC, formerly as KC, breathes life to the music which complements and transforms the celestially hypnotic vocals of Viqueen Fay-ann. The additional flavor of LAZAbeam (Jus Now) and Wetty Beatz seals this exceptional record which transcends carnival stages and almost guarantees widespread success for this internationally aimed rendition.

Powerhouse Production Team Yaga Sounds features Sizzla In New Tune DBM (Dem Bad Mind)

Sizzla_Dem_Bad_Mind_Yaga_Sounds.jpgPowerhouse Production Team, Yaga Sounds, features Sizzla Kalonji with the new tune DBM (Dem Bad Mind) currently available iTunes. While Sizzla is constantly releasing songs throughout the year, this trio of dynamism aspires to take this one from a major buzz on the streets to the international market.

DBM was premiered on Large Up and Reggaeville last week, two of the largest Reggae sites in the world. Sizzla delivers a heavy message over a driving up-tempo riddim, "You have some people go on like them are the best, all them do is fight against the progress, tell da wicked man say dem just can't test, tell dem life over death….Dem Bad Mind."

Dubbed as a hard-hitting dance hall tune, DBM gives a hardcore message. It speaks against negative people and negative situations, while promoting a good positive environment and positive energy. Playfully at the end Sizzla teases with an unpredictable ending for the ladies.

Yaga Sounds member, EchoSlim describes the message, "Dem Bad Mind is deep in turns of all the social issues that are going on with the Ferguson Riots, the murder of Mike Brown and Mario Deane, all the way to Trayvon Martin to as far back to even Emmett Till. It represents injustice happening to people all over the world. It speaks to everyone that has an unjust way of thinking from politicians to police officers to every day people. No one is exempt, from the highest of the high to the lowest of the low."

Badgyal Ce'Cile Still Running - Releases New Album - @IAMTHECECILE

Badgyal-cecile-still-running-album.jpgRecording artist Ce'Cile hopes to give fans more than they've become accustomed to in her latest album entitled Still Running.

The 16-track set, the singer's third studio effort, is slated to be released on October 14. Co-produced by Vinny Vindetto, John FX and Ce'Cile, the project will be distributed by Zojack Worldwide.

"It's not a reinvention of me or anything, but Jamaica has never got a chance to hear a more rounded and acoustic side of me. I just want fans to hear a more correct version of who Ce'Cile really is… vocally and lyrically" .

The 40-year-old singer said she is not worried about her fans not embracing her new musical thrust.

"I don't want every time I sing, it's about partying or dancing. I am going much deeper. I don't want to be repetitive … I have done enough of those songs," she said.

Among the track listings are Do You Know, On the Run, One Love and Turn it Up. The latter was released on August 28.

"Do You Know is one of my favourite tracks, as the words are powerful. It's basically encouraging persons to love themselves and that they are beautiful no matter the skin they are in, or if they are considered to be odd, or different to others," she said.

REVIEW: The Gladiators Featuring Droop Lion - Back On Tracks - @DroopLionMusic

drooplion-gladiators.jpg

Reggae singer, Andrew Brown, aka Droop Lion, could very well be the poster child for that much fabled old soul who is trapped in a youthful body. Listening to him as lead vocalist on the latest Gladiators CD, The Gladiators Featuring Droop Lion - Back On Tracks, it is all too easy to picture him actively partaking in a recording session with the group 50 years ago. It is truly a spine-tingling, goose-bump-raising kind of experience.

Droop Lion's searing, soulful vocals blend in smoothly and perfectly with the mood and the message of the original tracks, some of which were recorded nearly half a century ago. "Perfection" was in fact the password used by The Gladiators and Droop Lion while working on this project with genius producer and musician, Clive Hunt, along with co and executive producers Cabel Stephenson and Michelle Jovanovich. Gladiators drummer, Anthony Griffiths, stated during the recording sessions that "every beat and note has to be perfect" and this CD has certainly achieved that goal.

Recorded at Mixing Lab and Cave Studios in Kingston, Jamaica, and released on The Gladiators Featuring Droop Lion - Back On Tracks, represents a skillful blending of the past with the present and this bodes well for the future of reggae music.

@Da_Plan - "There's no dream too big to achieve" - Bravery iTunes - @Digitalvibezent

Daplan-Bravery-itunes.jpg

"It is very important for Reggae/Dancehall music to have new artist coming up and doing good, because the music must have a fresh sound from time to time. Chronixx was also a new artist that we had worked with when he was unknown. So we're just doing our part and keeping the music going". - Gary "Shanguly" Samuels of Digitalvibez Entertainment

Born September 17th 1983; Davian Ledgister grew up on the rugged streets of Waterhouse in Kingston, Jamaica. He began his musical journey at the tender age of nine, but it wasn't until he was 17 and recorded his first song titled "We Nuh" at the legendary Anchor recording studio that Davian decided to make it his career.

The song was well received and garnered great feedback from local radio. But it wasn't until a memorable radio interview with the iconic Ron Muschette of IRIE FM in Jamaica that Davian adopted the moniker of "Da'plan".

This was to be the kickstart of his rising career, since then Da'plan has recorded for numerous producers such as Author Whales of Freewilly Productions, Backra of Terrace Muziq, Mario C, Robert French, among many others.

His vision is limitless, ultimately to make an impact on the world in a similar manner that other legends of Reggae/Dancehall have done in the past. Da'plan distinct sound incorporates a number of different art forms and rhymes, compact with a variety of lyrics, melodies and flows. Da'plan philosophy is simple "There’s no dream too big to achieve".

Music Producer @MaroonRiddimz Releases Project For "Second Generation Immigrants"

American-Immigrants-Second-Generation-album-Maroon-Riddims.jpg

(Pembroke Pines, FL) 23 year-old music producer and engineer Maroon Riddimz shows how it is possible to cater to a diverse audience through music with a self-produced project. The release of his new compilation album titled "American immigrants: 2nd Generation" exceeds mainstream boundaries from what listeners would typically expect to hear from an album or mixtape release. Artists or producers usually release projects marketed to their specific fan base that enjoys the genre of music they create. Maroon Riddimz markets to people like him, second generation immigrants that enjoy modern musical diversity. The project contains self-written skits, and 5 different genres, including the introduction of "Househall" -- Maroon's original genre from the fusion of new age Electronic Dance Music with bashment style Dancehall. House, Trap, Reggae and Hip-Hop are the other styles found in the mix, and every track is produced and mixed by Maroon himself. Overall, the diverse project contains 30 tracks in total - a full 79 minute CD of entertainment!

Born in the United States, descending from Jamaican parents and raised in South Florida, Maroon grew up in a melting pot of cultures:
"As a second generation immigrant, being open to different types of music is definitely more common than uncommon here. I don't feel that I would experience music the same way without growing up in such a diverse part of America."

Shhhh!!!!! What?? "WHISPER" Is RDX's Most Raunchiest Song Yet!! - @DelomaRDX @RDXrenigade @RDXMusic

rdx-whisper-itunes.jpgAs the movement that is RDX trots forward, the impressive duo readies to release their most provocative single yet. All "Naughty Girls" can "Jump", "Kotch", "Bend Over" and "Ride It" out the way, while preparing for the "Waterfalls" that will ensue after the salacious "Whisper" has grazed their ears.

"Whisper" is co-produced by the spicy Picante Music and Apt 19, adds to the stellar year of singles RDX has pushed out. (Popular single "Jump" will be receiving "Top Dancehall Single" of the year from the upcoming Hapilos Digital Awards.) Known heavily for notorious "dancehall" singles, RDX begin 2014 shedding light to the diversity of their musical creativity, releasing singles such as "Sexy Touch" "Touch 101". Following up to those eargasm singles, RDX delivered new pulsating Dancehall classics like "Hold Yuh Lane" "Fluffy Girl Anthem" and "Head Top".

Now RDX merges the sexual prowess of Dancehall with explicit dalliances of after dark entertaining. "Whisper" in its clean version is simply a tease of male and female flirtation, catchy enough for radio play. The uncut chronicle has just the right amount of raunchiness to taunt our natural desires. The track itself beckons a nice slow whine, while deejay Renigade delivers commanding verses peppered while singer Delomar's persuasive chorus.

Ziggy Marley's Fly Rasta available April 14 - @ziggymarley

For Ziggy Marley, his latest vehicle of expression the album
Fly Rasta, represented a galactic sonic journey.

Ziggy-Marley-fly-rasta.jpgThe trip began in early 2013 with a handwritten note by the six-time Grammy Award winner (with his most recent being the 2014 Best Reggae Album Grammy for Ziggy Marley In Concert). He sat in his home recording studio, took out a scrap of paper, and began to think about what would become his fifth solo studio album.

The concept was simple: make a record that was true to himself, and expanded the territories of the traditional reggae sound by exploring new musical spaces. He had brought strands of other genres into his previous albums, but now he was looking further into the musical universe, like the deep-space eye of the Hubble telescope.

Ziggy began work in Spring 2013 and enlisted producer Dave Cooley to join him on the adventure. Recording began shortly thereafter with the help of friends old and new, including The Melody Makers (sisters Cedella Marley and Sharon Marley, and singer Rica Newell); drummers Stephen Ferrone (Tom Petty), Brian MacLeod (Sheryl Crow), Rock Deadrick (Ben Harper) and Motown's legendary James Gadson; guitarists Lyle Workman (Sara Bareilles), Takeshi Akimoto (Taj Mahal) and Ian "Beezy" Coleman (Burning Spear); bassists Dave Wilder (Norah Jones), Guy Erez (Karmina), Abraham Laboriel (Paul Simon) and Pablo Stennett (Willie Nelson); and keyboardists Zac Rae (Lana Del Ray), David Palmer (Goo Goo Dolls), George Hughes (Sarah Vaughan), Mike Hyde (Burning Spear) and Brian LeBarton (Beck).

Fox Fuse Releases Take Center Stage During Trinidad Carnival - @FoxFuse

Farmer Nappy and Benjai Take Top Prizes in Carnival Competitions, Hit Albums Now Available
Worldwide from FOX FUSE

rhona-fox-itunes-trinidad.jpg

New York, NY (FOX FUSE) - Trinidad and Tobago just wrapped up its 2014 Carnival season and revelers were inundated with great soca offerings, including Farmer Nappy's "Big People Party," Benjai's "Come Out To Play" and Tallpree's "Jab Jab Nation," all of which are now available for sale worldwide from all major digital retailers, from FOX FUSE. Dedicated to distributing and marketing Caribbean music to the global audience, FOX FUSE strives to make its clients household names.

Longtime client and soca star Farmer Nappy placed third in the International Groovy Soca Monarch competition with his massive groovy hit "Big People Party," the lead single from his new album Big People Party, which was released on February 25, 2014 (both physically and digitally), by FOX FUSE. The finals of the Soca Monarch competition were held last Friday, February 28 at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port of Spain, Trinidad on the day known to locals as "Fantastic Friday." Big People Party is currently within the top 100 on iTunes U.S. Top Albums Reggae chart and the single debuted in the Top 10 on the iTunes Top Songs in Trinidad and Tobago, peaking at #2.

farmer-nappy-itunes-foxfuse.jpg

Farmer Nappy also blazed his way down the streets of Port of Spain on Carnival Tuesday (March 4), and his groovy hit "Big People Party" was the surprising anthem on the road, wining second place in the Road March competition. Road March winners are decided by the most plays a song receives by the parading bands on the road, during the entire day. It is almost unheard of for a groovy anthem to score during the Road March competition, which is usually reserved for high-energy, power soca tracks that keep the crowd marching down the road all day long.

Grenadian soca star Tallpree also competed in the finals of the Groovy Soca Monarch competition, with his offering on the Vintage Riddim, "Jab Jab Nation." Produced by Shawn "Mr. Roots" Mitchell for WIZ Records, the Vintage Riddim presents a classic take on soca along with a fusion of Grenada's native jab jab sounds. The same formula earned Trinidadian thriller Benjai third place in the Road March competition on Carnival Tuesday, as he also brought groovy sounds with "Come Out To Play" (featured on the Vintage Riddim). He, along with Farmer Nappy, forever changed the formula for Road March anthems.

Etana Pulls Trigger - @EtanaStrongOne @KEONA_danesia

Etana-Strong-one-pull-trigger-album.jpgInternational reggae artiste, Etana is pulling the trigger with another socially conscious message for fans. Etana has never been afraid to push the envelope and express herself freely. She explores the difficulties and hardships faced by communities at the base of the social strata. She is known for inspirational music and provides hope through song.

Her latest single, Trigger, exposes an abstruse side of a survival story. "I think it's different to view things from the perspective of the man holding the gun. This song doesn't say he actually pulled the trigger, but he's thinking. That's what he has to do, due to circumstances. It's metaphoric, a deep song that is real to some," Etana explained. Trigger tells the true-to-life tale of a youth, who promised his mother faithfully that he, would evade a life of crime. This character is trapped by economical challenges, making the temptation near impossible to resist. He hollers, 'Mama mi haffi pull the trigger, again'" and clarifies why he is ensnared in a cycle he desperately tries to abandon.

The lyrics, written by Shauna McKenzie Morris and Sherietta Lewis, are enthralling. Etana said her inspiration to write and record the piece came from, "someone I met long ago who had a similar story, but never picked up the gun. Instead, he chose the books. However, some aren't so fortunate to even find assistance to continue their education."

Soca Star Farmer Nappy Releases New Album - Big People Party - @1FarmerNappy @FoxFuse

Physical & Digital Album Debuts Worldwide on February 25, 2014, with Pre-Order Available Now, from FOX FUSE

Farmer-Nappy-Soca-Big-People-Party.jpgNew York, NY (FOX FUSE) - Soca star Darryl "Farmer Nappy" Henry brings the spirit of Trinidad Carnival to the global masses with his new album Big People Party, available worldwide from all major digital retailers, as well as physical CD in stores, on February 25, 2014, with pre-order available now, from FOX FUSE. Celebrating over 30 years in music, the accomplished and acclaimed Trinidadian singer and songwriter delivers the very best that soca music has to offer with this new collection of hits on his third full-length studio effort.

Big People Party is the only album that is released internationally by an artist during Trinidad's Carnival 2014 season. Farmer also accomplished this major feat with his previous album, You Make Me…Surrender, released in February 2012 from FOX FUSE. That album received a coveted review and rating from MTV, garnering a tremendous 4 out of 5 stars. It was also featured in The New Yorker Magazine, along with numerous other international media, as well as in all the major news and entertainment outlets at home in Trinidad and Tobago.

"Following the success of my last album, I took the past two years to carefully create and craft this album, Big People Party, and concentrated greatly on the quality of the productions rather than the quantity of releases," reveals Farmer Nappy. "It is titled Big People Party because that is my favorite song on it but I made this album for everyone - the young and old, big or small - it is truly for everyone, with lyrics and rhythms to match. We truly invested in the quality of the music and I'm very proud to be able to again represent and carry soca music outside of its carnival circles and bring it to the worldwide audience, with this internationally-released album."

Luckily for music lovers, the two finally reunited; "Its been years since me and Gyptian worked due to super busy Schedules but whenever we get in the studio with his melodies and my production we always come out with cool songs and i feel this song will definitely move clubs around the world" stated billboard producer Ricky.

The new single "Stuck" offers a flair of dancehall with a hint of soca. It was described by music industry insiders as a feel good song that makes you sway as the first note hits your soul, it sticks to you!

Saine to bare all on upcoming debut album, 'Naked' - @SAINE__

By Mark Jodee
OutAroad Freelance Writer

Saine_Album_Naked_Itunes_cover_reggae.jpgEmerging Jamaican songstress, Saine is an artist of baring all, physically and musically, to show her artistic prowess. Now, the 'Guitar Girl' is pulling the strings on her debut album, aptly titled Naked.

The album, which she hopes to release later this year, showcases an evolution of Saine from a sweet-singing starlet into a more, well-rounded entertainer, willing to push boundaries and express herself in music without apology. She says this album describes such willingness as it showcases her true personality and beliefs in song.

"I decided to name it NAKED because it is me in my truest form; open and exposed to my fans," she toldExaminer.com Friday. "I'll have quite a variety of styles ranging from reggae to dancehall, pop and even dubstep. At the end the gist is for my fans to know who I am, the real me, so after listening to it you won't have to ask who is Saine, you'll know."
The first single off the album, Good Ova Evil(Audiotraxx Productions) was released earlier this month, in which she points to keeping positive mental and spiritual meditations in the wake of physical adversity. The song is currently available on iTunes.

Another song she will release from Naked prior to its release is I Believe In Me and will be promoting both singles ahead of the compilation hitting shelves.

Dancehall Star Konshens Makes Change Title of Sophomore Album - @KonshensSojah @DestineMedia

International dancehall artist Konshens announces the title of his Sophmore Album 'Hotel Room'.

Konshens_Hotel_Room_album.jpgHere is what Konshens had to say about choosing the title 'Hotel Room' and changing the album title from Love Truth and Dancehall (LTD).

Q. So how did you come up with the title 'Hotel Room'?

"The last album 'Mental Maintenance' had me on the road for the majority of the year, I was unable to go to the studio and voice as often as I would like. So we brought the studio on the road and voiced in the 'Hotel Room'.

My producer and engineer Mark Hize is also my DJ when on the road., so more time after a show we vibe and voice a song. On this album if you hear a soca song its possible that we just done perform a Trinidad and then go back to we room and voice. You may hear a bad one drop and we were probably in Africa at the time.

So the title really signifies the hard work we put in this past year on the road, thanks to 'Mental Maintenance' and the work we continue to do while on the road and voicing every chance we get in and out of the 'Hotel Room'".

Stellar Award Winner Papa San Sets To Release 6th Gospel Album This Weekend - @iamPapaSan

Papa_San_One_Blood_Album_Cover_itunes.jpgEver since his days on the secular stage, Tyrone "Papa San" Thompson has had a heart for music and the less fortunate. On Saturday he teams up with local charity The Rescue Package Foundation to twin two loves - philanthropy and music as headliner for Liberation 2013: The "One Blood" Album Launch at the Jamaica College Auditorium, Kingston.

Collab Filled Frenzy
With anticipation for the project growing globally, Jamaicans will be the first to sample the collab-only disc. Featuring tracks from gospel heavy hitters Israel Houghton, Da T.R.U.T.H Fred Hammond and Grammy award winning rapper Lecrae, he also hits notes with fellow Jamaicans Stitchie and DJ Nicholas. The 13 track project showcases Papa San's versatility like never before. With his unforgettable hooks and mile-a-minute raps the music offered is fresh, inspiring and sure to please even his very picky Jamaicans.

5th Times the Charm
It's not uncommon for Rev. Papa San to put his homeland first. Since migration he's blazed the trail for gospel, becoming the first Caribbean gospel artiste to hit the Billboard charts and consequently the first to win a stellar award (gospel's version of the Grammy). Now going by the name Papa Son (his new moniker from his 2011 album "My Story"), he's had success in his pastoral ministry as Senior Pastor for Our Father's Kingdom Ministries in Florida. However timing and schedules kept him from Liberation.

Alborosie - Sound The System - FEB 2014 U.S. Tour - @Alborosie

Alborosie_album_sound_system.jpgAlborosie may not be Jamaican by birth, yet he promotes reggae music in its truest sense. With dreadlocks almost touching the floor, the Sicilian-born singer - one turned Jamaican national - is a proud Rastafarian armed with a rebel philosophy. On Monday, September 30, 2013, he continues his musical mission with his self-produced, landmark album and vinyl LP Sound The System on Greensleeves Records. Alborosie also has a U.S tour planned for February 2014 in support of the North American release. Tour dates will be announced later this fall.

Sound The System, which was released in Europe in July, boasts the perfect balance of live instrumentation and analogue recording techniques and is filled with Alborosie's signature thought-provoking lyrics, satisfying vocals and classic contemporary sound. The modern-day Renaissance man demonstrates a mastery of traditional reggae, while pointing the way forward for himself and the genre.

Alborosie describes Sound The System as "a new chapter" and "revolutionary in terms of the message." "You're going to hear some good music and learn to live good," he adds.

The re-emergence of "live" reggae and timeless dancehall music owes much to the trail he blazed on earlier albums such as Escape To Babylon and 2 Times Revolution - the difference being that he has now raised the bar even higher. Alborosie not only lives and breathes the music, he's assimilated it to the point where he's now indistinguishable from the pioneers who created it - possessing the same spirit and sharing the same goals. For example, "Positiveness" and "Warrior" are the kind of songs that icons like Bob Marley or Toots Hibbert would write, since both are guaranteed to have audiences on their feet, singing along and feeling togetherness.

Maxi Priest, who has been spreading reggae music across the globe since the 1980s, has rightfully earned his place among other greats such as Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Toots & The Maytals and Dennis Brown. This is an extraordinary achievement for a singer steeped in Jamaican music, yet raised in South London. Maxi's joyous brand of reggae and lovers' rock, infused with r&b and accompanied by real charisma, has brought him a level of success no other British reggae singer can match. He is one of only two British reggae acts (along with UB40) to have a U.S. Billboard #1 hit "Close to You" in 1990, his duet with Roberta Flack, "Set the Night to Music" reached the U.S. Billboard Top 10 in 1991, and his duet with Shaggy in 1996, "That Girl," was also a hit in the United States, peaking at #20.

First Name Music Drops Selection Riddim To Rave Reviews

Selection_Riddim_First_Name_Music_Troy_Mclean.jpgPacked with stars and musical pioneers, the Selection Riddim offers the authentic Reggae vibes that we so love. With heavyweight stars such as Alborosie, Capleton, Sizzla, Chaka Demus, Mr. Vegas, Lutan Fyah, Romain Virgo, Christopher Martin, Zamunda and Renegade, the producer, First Name Production could have never delivered a more diverse lineup for this soothing riddim.

Christopher Martin has been on a roll in recent years, and he continues his excellent form with 'Never Cheat' where he professes his never-ending love for his woman even in the face of women throwing themselves at his feet. Sizzla goes vintage falsetto with Lover's Paradise, a brilliantly rendered song that renews one's faith in reggae as a medium to convey major emotions of love.

Zamunda's crisp clear vocals are a revelation on 'Longing for Love' but it is Mr. Vegas who has the standout song on this wrong with the soul-searing 'Love Yourself' where Mr. Vegas achieves a level of lyricism and soul that has been missing from reggae for two decades. Mr. Vegas delivers a song that is carved in reggae oak: solid. On the chorus, he scats: 'you can't love me until you lo-lo-love yourself', a brilliant singalong hook that will have reggae fans head-bopping and singing in their cars.

Mr. Vegas must be commended for highlighting the importance of self-respect and self-esteem especially in a society grappling with high rates of domestic violence, bleaching and self-concept issues. On this track, Mr Vegas points to the reason that so many relationships fail in Jamaica: people don't love themselves so how they can they profess to love someone else?

Tyler K. McDermott

Syleena_Johnson_Musiq_Soulchild_Flava_McGregor.jpg

Syleena Johnson indulges in reggae alongside Musiq Soulchild for "Feel the Fire," the official single from their upcoming album, "9INE." The song, exclusively premiered here on The Juice, stemmed from a chance encounter during a recording of a duet for reggae producer Kemar McGregor's compilation album which then snowballed into a full-length LP.

"The music was so good, and [Musiq and I] both love Kemar's production so we're just like, 'Why don't we just do [an album] together?'" the soulful songstress tells Billboard.

According to Syleena, "9INE" is heavily influenced by numerology. The pair teamed up with McGregor to record nine tracks for the album in nine days. The two are also born in September, the ninth month of year, which she said added to the divinity of the project.

Allowing their voices to intertwine effortlessly over the steady pulse of McGregor's acoustic production, "Feel the Fire," arrives just in time to compliment the dawn of summer. Fans will have an opportunity to gain insight on the recording of the single as well as another titled "The Promise," during episodes seven and eight of TV One's "R&B Divas."

New Vybz Kartel album could be released this summer

By Marc Parc
OutAroad Freelance Writer

Vybz_Kartel_album_2013.jpgAs embattled deejay, Vybz Kartel awaits a spring court date to begin his long-awaited murder trial, he could be set to release a new album from behind bars this summer as he looks to satisfy his fans' desire for new material.

On Sunday, reports emerged that the 'Worl' Boss' is planning to drop a 20-track album from jail, featuring a number of unreleased tracks as well as current hits. No name nor release date has been announced for the album. However, people associated with Kartel's camp insist the project is in the works and that fans can look out for singles from the compilation in the near future.

"We have been toying with the idea since last year and the numerous delays in the trial makes the time right to release a new album," one source told online magazine, Urban Islandz. "The album will see some unreleased never before heard singles, some ones that we recently release like "Mr. Bleach Chin" that's tearing up the place, and we will have a couple remixes."

In January, speculation about a new Kartel album was ignited thanks to a press release issued from jail through the co-author of his Voice of the Jamaican Ghetto book, Michael Dawson. It was then reported the album would be a roots and culture-themed project and would be released through his Whirlwind Entertainment brand.

Stylistically, Better Tomorrow is a marked departure from her previous material, including The Strong One (2008) and Free Expressions (2011). Instead of incorporating Jamaica's popular digital riddims, she chose to be backed by all live instrumentation.

"I wanted this album to feel like a concert performance and have everything go together, like chapters in a book, with all of the tracks played live by musicians (not digitally generated)," Etana explained.

The album's primary producer, Shane C. Brown of Kingston's Juke Boxx Productions, and Stanley "Rellee" Hayden executed her vision. She recorded all fourteen tracks at Kingston's legendary Tuff Gong Studios with Jamaica's finest modern-day musicians - including saxophonist Dean Fraser, guitarist Lamont Savory, keyboardist Kevon Webster, drummer Kirk Bennett, bassist Aeion Hoilett and percussionist Uziah "Sticky" Thompson.

Digital Vibez 90's Riddim Resurrects Dancehall's Sound

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN THE 90'S RIDDIM

Chronixx_90s_riddim_richard_roache.jpgWith an estimated 20 - 40 Dancehall riddims released each week fans of the genre sometimes struggle to find a production worth listening to or even purchase. Quality control is one of several problems the genre has failed to tackle and this has kept more and more Jamaican artists on the outskirts of mainstream music markets but once in every blue moon comes a project that blows the lid off such a stereo type.

Officially released last October the 90's Riddim by Digital Vibez Muzik has kicked the door open and represents a refreshing sound that dancehall has been missing for the last 5 years.

Digital Vibez Muzik was founded in 2010 after Digital One Productions owned and operated by Richard "Digital One" Roache and MadVibez Entertainment operated by Michael "MadVibez" Thompson was merged together with the addition of Musician, Song Writer, Producer and Engineer Gary "Shanguly" Samuels who came on board with years of experience in the industry as tour engineer for the likes of Beenie Man and Jah Cure.

The 90's Riddim only features a handful of songs but is a powerful representation of just how potent Dancehall has become with the likes of a new comer like Chronixx setting the tone for the project with his song entitled "Odd Ras".

Flip Money Records Strikes Gold With 'Raw Cash'

Raw_Cash_Riddim.jpgDancehall artiste Flippa Moggela has put on his producer's hat with his latest project, the Raw Cash Riddim, which has been released on his Flip Money Records label.

Dancehall superstar Mavado leads out the riddim with his catchy 'Million Dollar Man' where he uses his sweet and compelling tone to great effect. This song is already a huge hit in the dances island-wide scoring numerous forwards whenever it is played in the dancehalls.

The high-riding I-Octane delivers the uptempo 'Mad Dem' where he declares "we put Jah over everything so we nah go mad over anyting", while DJ Liquid finds a solid hook on the party-happy 'Wine Baby'. DJ Liquid changes up his delivery to a more nasal one on the second verse where he sounds like he is doing his best Vybz Kartel impersonation. Assassin lowers the boom on 'Don't Violate', a stern warning where Assassin shows off his lyrical dexterity with complex rhymes and a rapid spit-fire delivery that underlines why he is one of the best deejays of his generation.

Flippa Moggela shows off his sense of humour on 'Hear Mi Hear' where he boasts that "mi money no have no limit and mi nah beg no friend". He addresses all his haters who hurl insults at him like 'informer', but declares that "mi hear but mi no hear".

Gappy Ranks’ jazzy, infectious reggae EP was produced by Kemar 'Flava' McGregor in connection with his recent campaign to spread the pleasures of pop-reggae music to a global audience.

Within the songs on "Hello," the listener can hear Ranks' personal and creative evolution within the UK's vibrant reggae scene, which is a colorful, celebratory community where live stage shows are the preferred source of entertainment, and local airwaves are brimming with reggae music on pirate radio broadcasts, combining to create Caribbean Britain's de facto mainstream media.

"Because of the major diversity of ethnic origin in UK, cultures have had no choice but to interact," said Gappy Ranks. "We also have the highest population of Jamaicans abroad so this has given reggae music a home away from home, so reggae/dancehall music is played in every club within every city. The radio stations also play a big part in the direction of music in the UK as commercial & pirate stations dominate the airwaves. We also have the Notting Hill Carnival every summer, where people from all around the world attend, bringing eye to the talent in the UK."

busy_signal_Reggae_music_again_album_cover.jpgThe good news keeps on coming for Dancehall/Reggae superstar, Busy Signal since his release from prison as his latest project has copped a top 10 spot on BBC Music's 'best of the year' chart.

Busy Signal's critically-acclaimed album, Reggae Music Again earned seventh slot on BBC Music's welcome to the top 25 albums of 2012 chart. This 'best of the year' chart was compiled by BBC Music pundits while fielding votes from a number of disc jocks as well as well as presenters from BBC Radio 1, Radio 2, Radio 3, Radio 1Xtra, 6 Music, Ulster and BBC Scotland.

A release issued BBC Music stated that each voter submitted their top five albums of the year, including new releases, mixtapes and DJ compilations. The final positions on the chart were determined by a points system based on the votes that were cast.
Amongst the pundits swayed by Reggae Music Again was BBC music writer, Lloyd Bradley. Bradley said of Busy's compilation, "With Reggae Music Again Busy Signal builds on all the clever musicality of 2010's D O B to produce an album that, appropriately for the 50th anniversary of Jamaica's independence, immerses itself in reggae music heritage. This is far more than what it seems to be billed as, namely 'Busy Signal changes style'. It's an important evolution of dancehall, connecting it to the timeline of Jamaican music, then pushing forwards into the 21st century."
