Hi Everyone 🙂

Today I have a lovely lady that caught my eye at the launch of Coming In Hot. Yeza took to the stage and sang her first single, “Everyting Is Irie.” Her confidence and sense of style already had her on my good list, then she opened her mouth and I was even more pleased. She rapped her verses on the riddim and engaged her audience, she’s definitely one to look out for; take a listen to “Everyting Is Irie” by Yeza.

Hi Everyone 🙂

This week we have new reggae music… Again! Ziah from the In.Digg.Nation Collective released his first single “Streets.” What makes it even more special, is that he wrote and produced the song. Ziah stresses the importance of teaching children what is right, and how the role of parents is an important factor in this. He’s grateful for getting the proper understanding as a youth so that he wasn’t lead astray; take a listen to Streets by Ziah.

Hi Everyone 🙂

Today we have brand new Reggae music! Mr. Jesse Royal blessed us with this slow and steady melody called, “Always Be Around.” He preaches that love is the foundation, reasoning with the listener on a personal note. Take a listen, and tell me in the comments below what you think! Did you enjoy it?

Hi Everyone 🙂

We’re in the midst of Reggae Month, so I must do my part by sharing some of the new music slashing through the reggae industry. Jah9 released her album “9” near the end of 2016 to bring us love and light into the new year. And a song that really touched on some deep problems in society, and brings out the inner warrior, in me personally, is “Unafraid.”

9 is available in stores, also follow Jah9 on Instagram @jah9online and find her on Facebook at Jah9online.

Hi Everyone 🙂

Have you ever been in love? Today I’m sharing a song from the tribute album “We Remember Dennis Brown,” it is “Have You Ever” by Marsha Ambrosius; a cover of Dennis’ “Have You Ever Been In Love.” My friend Minkah shared it with me the other day, and I’ve had it on repeat, take a listen.

For the fun of it I’m going to share the original as well, “Have You Ever Been In Love.”

Hi Everybody! 🙂

Today I’m sharing some new music with you, well they may not be new but they’re new to me, and I’m loving them. I heard Samory I at Dubwise Jamaica last week Wednesday and I love his voice, I had to search for his music the next day. Take a listen to “Take Me Oh Jah” performed live at Dubwise.

I had seen this song circulating on the web since it was released but I just took the time out to listen to it last week and I like it, it’s different! I’m feeling Jane. This is Jane Macgizmo, take a listen to “Babylon.”

This new song, “Rise Up Now” by A-Game is lit! I like it because it’s really inspiring, there are a lot of people out there suffering, take a listen to this song and don’t give up, continue striving to provide for your family.

Chronixx released a few new songs near the end of 2015 and them mad, they have been ruling the airwaves in 2016. I’m gonna share “Spanish Town Rocking” with you today.

Hey Everyone 🙂

It is Ash Wednesday, which means today is the start of lent, are you giving anything up?

Today I have a ‘meme’ to share with you, it’s one of those “What’s your __ Name?” pictures, I found it on Irie FM’s Facebook page. So in the liveliness of Reggae Month, let’s play this game! Comment your Reggae Name below 🙂

I am Sugar Vibration…And for some reason I love the name, so imma run with it! My friend said I must be an Island since I have a palm tree (tattoo) on me. So I’m trademarking (not literally…yet) Isle Sugar Vibration. The name just feels right to me, like I can do something with it in the future.

Capture Land Jamaica Tour Part 2

Hey Everybody 🙂

The other day I bucked this article on Chronixx’s website (chronixxmusic.com) and it was a good read but something he said stood out to me.

“I hold this tour very close to my heart. The true Reggae experience with a live band has for centuries been the genesis of the acceptance of our music internationally. Now Jamaicans are no longer able to readily access this movement because of cost and accessibility of our best musicians.  I have seen the love for Reggae in other parts of the world and I just want fans in Jamaica to have that opportunity to really connect with the music,” said Chronixx.

Taken from “Chronixx announces second staging of ‘Capture Land’ Jamaica Tour” by Dean Jackson.

As a reggae lover, simply as a music lover I really appreciate the effort that artistes are making to have concerts in Jamaica, so that we are able to experience what other countries get when they have a tour, also these are at an affordable price. Another concert I enjoyed was Live From Kingston. I missed the first staging of the Capture Land Jamaica Tour but I’m going to try to go to the nearest one to me in the second staging, Spanish Town.

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 🙂 Continue reading “Dubbing into Independence”
