876Lover Will Be Taking A Short Break

Hi everyone, Due to some unforeseen circumstances that came up in my personal life, 876Lover will be taking a short break. During this period I’ll be posting a minimum of one article per week. I will try to do more but at this time it […]

M.I.A.- I'm Back!

Hey everyone 🙂 This is my formal post to say I’m back! Yes, I stayed away longer than I said I would but let’s just say I went on a vacation 🙂 Today I came on my blog, in drafts, (I have a lot of posts […]

Blessings For 2016

Happy New Year Everyone!!

I wish you a happy, adventure-filled, and prosperous year. I’ll be cliché and say you’re not getting any younger.

I hope you all enjoyed the holidays, please don’t scold me for being missing for the past 2 weeks, thereabout. My laptop is having personal issues right now, I will be back to my regular posting pattern as soon as possible though.

For 2016 I have a couple posts ready (in my head) for you all, giving you a little bit of my Jamaican Christmas holiday 🙂 We have a lot to look forward to as well, February is Reggae Month, and Carnival season begins in the middle of Feb. Plus there will always be events for me to cover!

I look forward to enjoying 2016 with you all.

Change The Game

Changes, is the word that comes to mind. You can’t win? So you change the game. Change isn’t the name of the game, you just love to play tricks. Fool me once, shame on you, Fool me twice shame on me. You changed the game […]

Nadia Harris McAnuff

I first heard Nadia at RedBones Blues Café for one of the nights of KOTE (Kingston on the Edge Urban Art Festival) her sound was different but it had a nice vibe, different as in unique but I was expecting reggae and this songstress belted a jazzy vibe with a mix of dub… and I loved it!

The second time was when I went to a Sankofa Session, I saw her on the flyer and me and my best friend decided we had to go see her perform again 🙂 It was definitely worth it, plus I got Miss Joy’s homemade juice again!

The third time (more…)

S&H for Jamaica 53

Jamaica 53 in style and true Jamaican fashion, partying the night away. For Independence my friend and I went to Shots & Hookah. Yes, I ranted about clubbing in the week (and feeling like a zombie the next day) but before you get on my […]

Dubbing into Independence

Hey Everyone 🙂

You know I find this so cliché to say but it embodies Jamaica so much, so wah gwaan?

Knowing that our Independence Day is August 6th, my friends and I decided to go to Dubwise the night of the 5th,  i.e. getting home late isn’t a problem because Holiday means sleeping in late.

Selfie before I hit the road.

We were Dubbing into Independence, reggae floating in the air, 53 years strong, and it wasn’t just reggae in the air. I love Dubwise because it’s not everyday you hear roots music blasting and being professionally mixed, just like any dance (party.) Hehe just Wednesdays 🙂 (more…)

Expression Wednesdays

Hey Everyone 🙂 Today is a magical day, good things happen on Wednesdays (I don’t need proof,) so since I won’t be going to Dubwise tonight I’m sharing Yaadcore’s Reggae Aroma playlists, just fulljoy some sweet reggae music. Vol. 1 Vol. 2 Vol. 3
