Hi Everyone ūüôā Last week Protoje was the special guest on BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Fire In The Booth! and he went in, him literally bun up the booth if you ask me. If you want to know why I love Protoje, take a look at 

REMSZN

REMSZN is the first album out of REM (Rapid Eye Movement) ‘Living Dream’ which is a collective of creative individuals, each nurturing different talents. REMSZN is the brain child of Leno Banton, writer and singer on the album. The project¬†had members of REM executing their talents, SNR exclusively produced it, Irie Girl sang on a track, and Khari Kamau and Kxrly Miyagi (Karlando) did the artwork.

See the track list below, and take a listen:

I like REMSZN; SNR and Leno came with a different vibe for this one, and it definitely worked! The songs tell a story, and the flow from song to song is pleasant, it starts off with a warrior like¬†strength and ends with love.¬†My fave songs from the project¬†are “Buffalo SoulJAH,” “Eight7Six,” ‘LVLs”¬†and “Regime.” The lyrics are good, and I love that, for me personally I look out for nice lyrics when listening to new music. I also like the small interludes or ‘Medz’ as it’s called on the album, where you get to feel a little more of Leno as a person. He speaks his thoughts on life between the tracks,¬†the topics include Self-awareness-which seemed to take a lead throughout the project- Marijuana, Spirituality, Uplifting the youth of Jamaica,¬†& Appreciation of family, and friends who are family.

“Inna di¬†Blessed Indies, Rapid Eye Movement…”

FLY

Straight out of Jamaica is the new single “Fly” by GiRL featuring Kenzic. The strength and beauty of the voice of both these artistes are undeniable, so when I saw that GiRL was releasing her first official single, and it featured Kenzic, I was overjoyed.

Caribbean Party

I listen to any genre of music, hip hop, pop, rap, rock, alternative, country, RnB, gospel, dub step, soca, as long as I like the song.

My fave genre of music is reggae, which is a part of Jamaica’s culture but I have to admit I do listen to dancehall, though some people don’t like the rawness of it, it’s also a part of the Jamaican culture and I was grown on it, I do dance to it as well.

Dancehall has 3 main types of songs, there are dancing chunes (tunes) which are songs that tell you what dance moves to do, for example Everybody Dance by RDX or Tek Weh Yuself by Mr. Vegas; there are bad man chunes which are Continue reading Caribbean Party
