Hi Everyone 🙂

Today I have the song “Skin Toned” for you, it is by Royal Blu & Runkus. This one is deep and I love it. We all come from God…yet we’re judged by our skin tone. Not only the message of this song is important, the word play is on point. I’m also gonna big up the producer, JLL.

Take a listen! Current mood:

Hi Everyone!

I’m taking a break from posting new music just for this week, because it is carnival week. Regularly it would have been the usual but seeing as I took it upon myself to jump in the Carnival Road March for the first time…Yes, in costume, feathers, makeup and all, I’m sharing a Soca song today. This was a hard pick because I like a lot of the 2017 Soca songs, take a listen to “Know The Face” by Marvay.

Hello 🙂

This one is out of the Alpine Compound, produced by Mr. Wavy Jones, featuring sounds from Jeeby Lyricist, Blvk H3ro and Kione Zaire. We can all appreciate a nice derrière, and so this song talks about that 100lb ting, take a listen.

Hi Everyone 🙂

Today I’m sharing “On A Wave” by Jeeby Lyricist, to me he’s rightly named; listen to the song and pay attention to the endless flows he displays. He’s not the only one pushing badness on the track though, he features Courtni, who let’s us know she’s ready to “siddung pon any beat weh Wavy make.” I had to share this song today because Jeeby and Courtni cleanly rode the wave that Wavy Jones and Kvje produced. The riddim gives a cool, and mellow vibe, somehow mimicking ocean waves.

More credit is in order, the lovely cover art was created by Abigail, @TinySunThing. Take a listen to On A Wave, and tell me what you think, I hope you like it as much as I do.

Hello 🙂

I sat here trying to think of a way to put a phrase into this sentence but in the meanwhile I’ll ask you to take a listen to “Meanwhile” by Royal Blu & Leno Banton. This upbeat track will have you blazing through traffic and dabbin’ at your desk in the office. It was produced by JLL and the artwork designed by Paige Zombie & Khari Kamau.

You can find @TheRoyalBlu & @LenoBanton on Twitter.

Hi Everyone 🙂

Today is International Women’s Day, it is the official day to celebrate our women. To celebrate the achievements of women, to celebrate all who have paved the way for women to have equal rights and opportunities. To stand up and fight, and protest against the abuse that women face, simply because they are women. Today I’ll be sharing a song by one of my favourite female artistes, “Humble Mi” by Jah9.

Happy International Women’s Day ☺

Today is Ash Wednesday, which has a lot of significance for different persons; as for myself, I am grateful for the public holiday. Yesterday was Carnival Tuesday in Trinidad, and as such today signifies the end of their carnival season, and the beginning of our own, here in Jamaica. We celebrate carnival here, because it’s fun. The origin is that, a group of persons went Trinidad and Tobago and experienced their carnival season and fell in love with the festivities, so they brought it back home. Our carnival season does not fall in line with the true religious reasoning, and begins on Ash Wednesday. This was the decided date so as to not be in competition with Trinidad.

I’m a lover of music, so I’m glad we were introduced to Calypso and Soca. The riddim calls for a response from the body, it’s quite enthralling. In preparing for Bacchanal in Jamaica, I found this groovy soca song, today I’m sharing with you “Calypso” by GBM Nutron. I have had it on repeat from last weekend, the instrumental in this song has me hooked, I urge you to listen keenly, maybe you will be able to list all the instruments that created this beautiful melody.

Hi Everyone 🙂

If you missed New Wave on Monday night, you missed something great. I love this platform, it is giving rise to the new wave, it allows upcoming artistes and artists to show their worth. (Bonus there is delicious vegetarian food on sale.) This week showcased Mortimer and Lila Ike, with art from Monique Kidd on display. I was already a Mortimer fan, I posted a song by him on the blog recently; but Lila Ike blew me away. Her voice is a unique one, and every note sounded sweet to the ears. She loves to freestyle, and I enjoyed that, because good lyrical flowing has a special place in my heart. Her performance truly left me pondering why she doesn’t have these songs released yet. The two songs I was really fond of were “Biggest Fan” and “Rain Start Fall.”

So, New Wave made me decide to bring to you Miss Lila Ike. Take a listen to “Believe” by Foresta featuring Lila Ike & Royal Blu.
